  1. Hello there, I am currently back in school at 31 yrs old to get my Associate in Information Technology / Network Administration. And I also work in the IT field as helpdesk for now, hey you gotta start somewhere. I love everything about Networking and Networking Administration but I also love fountain pens new and old. I have been really wanting to start using Wax seals for my letters and want to get a custom wax stamper made. I don't want something generic like my initials. I would really like something related to Networking that would signify my love for the field. Something geeky and awesome to anyone that knew what it was but also still look cool for those that have no idea what it is lol. I had a few ideas in my head that I tried sketching out but honestly, I'm not a creative person at all. The only thing I really came up with was a cisco router or switch with some ethernet cables coming out of it and some binary 1s and 0s floating along the cable. So I could use some help and suggestions from people more creative than I who are knowledgeable in networking to maybe help me with some ideas? Thanks!

    Sealing Wax

    I have this problem of the wax sticking to the stamp, what am I doing wrong? How can this problem solved? Thank you in advance.
  3. Can someone suggest a good source in the US for hard sealing wax without wicks? I notice that Amazon.co.uk sells Pelikan sealing wax, but it's quite expensive and I'm not sure if it's the hard kind.
  4. Imagine you wanted a wax seal relevant to your family and able to be used by both males and females in the next generation or two. What questions would you ask yourself when attempting to identify symbols for inclusion? Assume there are no classical pieces of history to draw on (knights etc) and that the concept is commencing with this generation.
  5. I am planning on lubricating the barrel/piston of my Pelikan 600, which is having difficulty turning. My son is an archer and has offered me the use of his Bohring Archery Seal-Tite Bowstring Wax - "Silicone Lubricated Bowstring Wax". Would this product be safe to use in place of the generally acceptable silicone grease, in terms of harm to the Pelikan barrel and piston? After a thorough search of Bohring Archery and other sites, I cannot find any ingredient list for the bowstring wax, other than the "silicone" aspect of the product. So, not sure what the "wax" might entail. Paraffin perhaps? Any comments or opinions welcome. Thanks so much!
  6. Hi, A couple of years ago my Dad found some lovely old sealing wax which he gave me. It doesn't have a wick, and is the traditional brittle kind. I am sadly starting to get to the end of my stock of this lovely wax and need to buy some more, however I am really struggling to find anything similar (for a decent price). The closest thing I can find is something called "Bank of England" sealing wax, however J.Herbin "Cire Banque" looks like it might be pretty similar. The difficulty I'm having is that I can only find this was in bulk boxes that are £60-£80 each, really I'm only after a couple of sticks and looking to spend £20ish. Does anyone know where I can get this type of wax for a decent price in the UK? (I'm after Red/Crimson, Blue and Gold). Thanks for your help. Joe
  7. Hi friends, Apologies if I have missed anything from the big master thread with links to info about seals and sealing wax, but I couldn't find an answer to my specific question. Which is - is there anywhere in the UK (or EU in general) that sells fairly inexpensive, decent quality seals for using with sealing wax? I've seen some very basic cheap stuff for a couple of pounds on offer on Amazon and also the really top-end seals that cost a fortune. I'd love to buy a couple of nicely-designed seals don't think I could justify more than maybe about £20 each. NostalgicImpressions in the US have some gorgeous designs that I love, but I'd get hammered for customs charges if I tried to import any (have just sadly made that mistake with some waxes). Thanks for any help! And apologies if I have missed a relevant thread. Floreat x
