WA X S E A L H E R I TAG E The history of the Wax Seal began during the Middle Ages in which official documents were sealed using beeswax to ensure authenticity. This curious ritual continued throughout the Classical period and became increasingly popular amongst aristocrats and those of significantly ‘higher social importance’. Not only was it considered the ultimate symbol of class but it also served a practical purpose as a secure method for sealing written correspondence. This fascinating tradition carried right the way through to the Edwardian period until the outbreak of the First World War when there was a dramatic shift in how documents were being sealed. Wax Seals were no longer being used for their intended purpose and had become somewhat of a novelty item. As a result of this, the stamp itself had become increasingly less desirable and manufacturers were forced to use cheaper materials to offset the decrease in sales. Unlike in the 19th Century where the handle of a Wax Seal Stamp would be intricately carved out of marble and solid gold, they were now more commonly being replaced with plastic. Towards the end of the 20th Century, Wax Seals had all but died out. The advent of technology caused widespread abandonment of print-based materials and marked the so-called “death of the wax seal”.

A LO N G CA M E S TA M P T I T U D E This is where we come in. In 2013 when we first started Stamptitude there were only a handful of online businesses that were still making Wax Seals. Most of them were industry veterans who had miraculously survived the last 15-20 years, during which print had reached its lowest point. Thankfully with more and more people now appreciating the importance of handwritten letters, we are seeing the rise of the ‘Modern Calligrapher’ which in turn has breathed new life into the Wax Seal industry. As one of the first companies of this century to bring Wax Seals to the modern market, we have made the conscious effort to push the industry forward and to provide innovative new approaches to the design and manufacture of our products. We believe that Wax Seals should uphold their tradition of being a quality item but that they should be made more accessible to everyone in terms of cost. From day one we have made it our top priority to provide an unrivalled service to our customers at a competitive price. We are a family-owned business who take great care in creating the perfect impression. Our passion for design and attention to detail is well-respected internationally. We are fortunate to have collaborated with some of our favourite artists and calligraphers from around the world and to have worked with the likes of L’Oreal and Dior along the way. As a small team of dedicated specialists, we are both humble in size and grand in ambition.

PRODUCT RANGE We currently have three styles of Wax Seal Stamps available for purchase at wholesale. Each one can be engraved with a choice of design from our various collections. The majority of our designs have been created in collaboration with other artists & calligraphers, who receive a commission from each sale.

SEALING WAX Stamptitude’s own

-

Our customers often proclaim that Stamptitude wax is the best wax they’ve ever tried. The consistency is smooth and the metallic flecks are visually stunning. The matte finish of our wax creates a look which is truly unlike any other wax on the market.

SEALING WAX STICKS We have our own selection of premium matte finish, Stamptitude-branded Sealing Wax. They are sold in packs of 5 and each stick is made from a flexible wax with metallic flecks. All our wax sticks are ‘wickless’ by design. We find that traditional wax sticks create an undesirable charring effect which will stain the color of the wax black.
