Wax seal stamps can imprint a wide array of designs into hot wax, such as initials, symbols, and short phrases. During the Middle Ages, wax seals were used to authenticate legal documents, but today they are an elegant finishing embellishment for personal correspondence, invitations, gifts, and certificates. They may also be used in cooking, crafting, making soaps or chocolates, and more. Browse our picks of the best wax seal kits and accessories below.
1. Anezus Sealing Wax Kit
Everything you need to create dazzling wax seals is included in Anezus’s sealing wax kit: a brass tree of life stamp on a finely crafted wooden handle, wax seal warmer, more than 600 wax beads in 24 colors, wax melting spoon, candles for heating the warmer, envelopes, and two metallic pens to embellish the seals. The wax beads melt quickly and are odorless and nontoxic; two or three beads are all you need to make one seal. The wax dries quickly and evenly. You can augment the set by buying additional stamp heads, which switch in and out easily.
2. Samyo Stamp Maker
Are you looking for a classy wax stamp with your initial?

To use, cut some of the wax from a stick and melt it in the spoon; it liquefies quickly and smoothly. Then pour it onto your surface, hold the stamp in place for about a minute, and voilà: a beautiful, classy wax seal of your initial. The stamp head is made from high-quality brass and may switched out for other stamp heads.
