Wax stamps

Wax stamps

This is our specialty and what we love to do!  We have a wide range of stamps of different sizes, for different applications and many different designs and styles to choose from.  Our favourite is all the custom wax stamps we do for weddings, corporate invitation and special occasions.

Mini brass stamp – this is our smallest stamp, with a stamp head of just 10mm.  The designs include numbers and a few simple images which can be viewed here.

Resin stamp – this is our range of fun stamps with fun and playful images and phrases for most occasions.  Stamp head size range from 23 -25mm.  Download design options from this link.

Brass stamp – this is our largest range and includes numbers, single letters and over 50 images.  The stamp head size is 20mm.  View all the images via this link.

Rubber stamp – this is a great stamp for crafts, ideally suited for ink stamping.  The size ranges from 19mm-50mm or up to 100mmx200mm in rectangle shape.  The designs include a range of simple images as well as the option to custom make with your own design.

Wooden handle stamp – this is the classic wax stamp.  A smooth wooden handle and solid brass head.  When doing custom designs, logos, family crest, etc this is wax stamp we use.  The size of the stamp head ranges from 20mm – 50mm and then the unique 25mm square stamp head.  The standard design in this range is the alphabet in a classic font and can be viewed via this link.

Cookie stamp – This stamp can also be used in clay, playdough or any soft medium.  We love it for personalising cookies for that special occasion.  There are a range of playful images and well used phrases.  Here is a yummy, tried and tested (and fool proof!) recipe to use with the cookie stamp.

Some history on wax stamps:Stamps are used primarily to authenticate documents, specifically those which carry some legal import. There are two main ways in which a seal may be attached to a document. It may be applied directly to the face of the paper or parchment (an applied seal); or it may hang loose from it (a pendent seal). A pendent seal may be attached to cords or ribbons (sometimes in the owner’s livery colors), or to the two ends of a strip (or tag) of parchment, threaded through holes or slots cut in the lower edge of the document: the document is often folded double at this point (a plica) to provide extra strength. Alternatively, the seal may be attached to a narrow strip of the material of the document (again, in this case, usually parchment), sliced and folded down, as a tail or tongue, but not detached. The object in all cases is to help ensure authenticity by maintaining the integrity of the relationship between document and seal, and to prevent the seal’s reuse. If a forger tries to remove an applied seal from its document, it will almost certainly break. A pendent seal is easily detached by cutting the cords or strips of parchment, but the forger would then have great difficulty in attaching it to another document (not least because the cords or parchment are normally knotted inside the seal), and would again almost certainly break it.
