Great for weddings, bridal showers, and other special occasions, this set from Seattle-based Global Solutions adds personality to every project. The ornate square stamp features the capital letter of your choice surrounded by Nordic-style flowers, leaves, and vines. Topped with a heart-shaped handle, each stamp measures three-quarters of an inch on each side and produces a seal about an inch wide. To help you get started, this set comes with a mini ink pad and a 2.75-inch wax stick.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of stamps and ink pad. Choose any letter from A to Z. For the ink pad, choose champagne or silver. This drop includes a cranberry wax stick and ornate seal. For an additional $9, you’ll have the option to add a 3-pack of wax sticks in any of the following color sets: Gold, Cranberry, and Copper; Harvest Gold, Silver, and Red; or Teal, Gold, and Red-Gold.
Before you make an impression, first trim the wick so it’s flush with your wax. Then, using a lighter, soften the wax for about 10 seconds. Gently push the wick onto the paper so a small amount of wax falls onto the wick, and relight the wax. Drip 10 to 15 drops into a pool, push the lit end of the wax stick directly into the pool, and swirl it around in a circle. Push the stamp into the wax and wait 5 seconds. Then, gently rock the stamp out of the wax to leave a clean impression. For a subtle highlight, use your finger to smudge some ink on top of the finished seal. For a more dramatic result, tap the stamp on the ink pad before pressing it into the wax.
Global Solutions founder Cathy Simon started out working with high-end paper. While at a trade show, she saw a selection of wax seals and knew immediately she wanted to learn the process herself. Inspired by the long history of wax seals, which can be traced back to the world’s first civilizations, she spent the next 8 years perfecting her formula. Today, Global Solutions sells decorative seals in a variety of sizes, along with wick-wax, paper goods, vintage watch parts, and more.
