Create Your Own 3D Printed Wax Seal
Wax seals were traditionally used as personal signatures and to seal envelopes. Because each seal was personalized, a seal could autenticate the sender and a broken seal could reveal tampering. The Wax Seal is an age-old design that meets futuristic production technology.
The Wax Seal will leave your engraved letters in wax.
Please note, sealing wax is not included with this purchase.
3D Printed in Metal
Wax Seal is 3D printed using stainless steel. The surface texture is slightly rugged, creating an antique, vintage look. The material is stiff and tough just like traditionally manufactured steel.
Instructions on Using Your Wax Seal
It is very important to make your seal cold before use. You can do this by submerging it in a cup of ice or ice water. If you use ice water, wipe off the water with a towel before stamping the wax. If the seal is not cold, bits of wax might stick to the seal.
When stamping on the hot wax, leave the seal on the wax for 10-15 seconds, then gently remove it. If you meet resistence when removing the seal, leave it on for a few more seconds to give the wax extra time to cool.
Personalize Your Wax Seal
The personalization tool puts the power to create and personalize in your hands without requiring you to be familiar with 3D modeling or complex CAD software. You can view your creation in a 3D viewer and see your design change as you personalize it.
You can add up to two letters, perfect for monograms!
You have the option of getting your seal in stainless steel, bronze plated stainless steel, or gold plated stainless steel.
Why 3D Printing?
3D printing changes the traditional manufacturing paradigm by making it possible to make products catering to every individual’s unique preferences. Each item is solidified from powder layer by layer, thus eliminating the need for molds.
With 3D printing, we can cut down on product waste, offer more designs, and enable you to personalize products reflecting your imagination and need.
The 3D Printing Process
Your personalized Wax Seal is made just for you with metal 3D printing technology.
A print head filled with binder solidifies the stainless steel powder in a tray layer by layer. Next, the product is carefully removed from its powder bed. Excess powder is recycled in the next print run.
Your product is then infused with bronze in a furnace. This hardens your product and gives it strength. Finally, it’s polished to smooth out the rough edges.
Some products may go through a gold or bronze plating process depending on your personalization choices. If you prefer a stainless steel finish, your product is left un-plated for a silvery steel finish. Every item is made on demand, which is why your item takes a little while to produce.
