Oh my goodness! We’ve made it!!
Happy wax seal Wednesday everyone!!!!!
Today I want to share some technical stuff; I get asked all the time “why dose the wax you use not crack and break like in the movies” or “I’ve heard using wax seals on wedding invitations is a bad idea, because they crack and break in the post”.
These are the two most common concerns I get about the type of wax seals, so I thought I would share with you the difference in the two types.
First, there is traditional wax, designed to be brittle and used historically as a tamper proof seal on historical documents. This is what you’ll often see in movies and documentaries, when urgent and impotent letters would be sent, and if the seal was broken, it was clearly tampered with. Aside from the “security” element, a similar type of wax is also used in bottling wines, perfumes etc.
However, for mailing wedding invitations, this type of wax will definitely not survive the post, which is why your stationery will use a modern, flexible wax that will withstand all manners of bending and ripping. I use @waxseals flexible wax sticks for all my wedding and branding clients and have had excellent results sending letters though the post without an outer envelope to protect the seal. The seal always stays in tack, even when opening the envelope, so your beautiful custom design will not be destroyed.
Wow, that’s a lot of wax sea talk... but I hope that was informative!!
Let me know in the comments below what you think of wax seals on invites and packaging.
