Ordering Your Custom Wax Seal

I’m opening the custom order process for the wax seals sold during the Kickstarter.  Putting in custom orders can get very involved, but fear not!  I’m doing all I can to make this go smooth.  I’ve created this special form to get your order in ASAP.

There are three main choices for your custom wax seal – initials, a short message, or your own design.

Initials

The easiest option! You’ll send in 1, 2, or 3 characters you want on your seal, and whether you prefer my vertical, overlapping design (left) or horizontal block letters (right.)

Why serif fonts?   Can I get another font?

I’ve found serif font to be the most readable in wax.  If you’d prefer another font, leave a note with your order.

Short Message

For this design, enter a 25-character message and I’ll wrap it around either a cool top hat design (left) or a lace cameo design (right).

If you’d like something different in the center, you can also send in art.  Art must have a white background.  Designs with less detail work better than other images.  Here are some other tips:

Your Own Design

Handy with graphics software?  You can also edit these handy templates that show the cutting edge and allowances on our standard size wax seals.

  • SVG – Vector file for Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, etc.
  • PSD – Adobe Photoshop file
  • JPG – All-purpose graphic template for GIMP and other graphics programs
If you choose to design your own, please take a moment to note it in the wax seal form.  It’s very important that we know who to expect files from, and it will give you the complete instructions for sending in your art.  The form also collects your mailing address so we know where to send your seal.

Something Else

Got a totally different idea for your seal?  Choose “Something else….” on the first page of the form to go to a more flexible version of the order form.

Deadlines

These orders are NOT guaranteed to arrive by Christmas, so get your order placed as soon as possible.
