Good Quality, Not-Too-Expensive Wax Seals In The Uk/eu



Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks Kate :) but guess what? I worked out that with the current strong £/$ exchange rate, and even after factoring in postage and customs charges, it was actually far better value to order from Nostalgic Impressions! Their designs are miles nicer and they have more variety too. So.....I....er,...I just ordered eight new seals :D I like the thought of my godchildren getting a variety of different seals on their envelopes, it will hopefully make the letters more fun.

 

(ETA I bought various designs including a square filigree 'A', a bee, a ship, a compass, a rose, a sun, a tree and a maple leaf.)

 

I do so love being a godmother; I just bought my 5-year-old godson a drumkit hahaha :D

Oh I'm glad you think they're good - the seals available here in the UK are generally either really flat and rubbish-looking, or beautiful but insanely expensive. The Nostalgic Impressions seals look like they have some good detail to them :) I might even end up wearing the ring!

I've been on the Nostalgic Impressions site and was wondering about their Scottish hand made wax. Have any of you tried it out?

 

 

Here is the link http://www.nostalgicimpressions.com/King_Size_Traditional_Sealing_Wax_with_Wick_hand_made_s/20.htm

 

Now that I know FPN members have good things to say about their seals, it sounds like this wax could be something special.
