Wax Seals on Invites

Hey everyone,

Has anyone sent out their invitations with wax seals on the outside? Did you find they held up well in the mail?

I LOVE the look of wax seals and definitely want to incorporate them into our invitations somehow - I'm playing around with adding them to the invitation itself, but wanted to know if it was worth the expense to put them on the outside of the envelope without the mail process ruining them. Thanks for any input!

    That sounds like a good plan. Thanks - I love the look also! It's probably the first thing I decided I had to have after I started planning.

    Thanks for the advice. Smiley smile

    We purchased some good quality sealing wax and a seal from Artisaire (who are actually Canadian btw), which is the first wedding things we've bought!! I'm excited to incorporate seals into our save the dates and invites.

    Try it out givent the budget set too. It goes well and looks as you like, proceed with the idea.
    Alternative is sticker seal to give the same idea just flat look.

    We had an inner envelope that was waxed seal and our outer envelope did not have them. You have to pay for oversized stamps but they travelled well and guests loved the added touch.

    I've only ever done seals on prop envelopes for a play, and they turned out really cool. I would do a test and see if the wax bleeds or stains the paper, and definitely splurge on good wax (our trial run used crayons and it was a disaster!) You can get it at Michaels or from most of the stationary websites.


    If you still want the look with less fragility you can find some stickers that are raised like wax seals, or even just beautiful monogrammed stickers with your initials.
