LASER ENGRAVED WAX SEAL STAMP SCALE A, personally engraved to your own custom artwork - various wax seal stamp sizes available.
(Scale - A or B will be assessed on receipt of artwork and is based on the amount of time the seal will take to engrave).
PLEASE FORWARD YOUR ARTWORK FOR APPROVAL - We will than advise which Scale of engraving is applicable to your design.
Please make an allowance within your vector artwork which should be bolder than your proposed wax seal impression to allow for the slight 10 deg incline that the laser cuts at.
Please email your design prior to ordering to confirm suitability for engraving to Sales@CustomWaxNSeals.co.uk, preferred file format is cdr (CorelDraw 6x), we can also view files in Adobe Illustrator, PDF, EPS, or High Resultion Jpg, but to use these files they will need to be converted to a vector SVG format for us to import the file into CorelDraw for engraving. Thin lines and fine detail may need to be thickened for engraving as they will not be strong enough to produce a wax impression. If sending vector artwork, please place your design within a thin circle to indicate placing on the wax stamp.
We will also advise on the recommended stamp size for your design. Once your artwork is approved for engraving we will email over the correct order link and reference.
Extra Artwork charges may apply if your design needs any amendments or is currently unsuitable for engraving, we will suggest improvements you can make yourself or we will do those for you (extra artwork fees may apply if we need to do major adjustments on your design)
PLEASE NOTE on your artwork design - the black area is engraved and is therefore raised in the wax seal impression - all artwork is reversed by ourselves at the engraving stage. Small text and thin areas of your design may not be engraved as deeply as other parts, this is due to the laser cutting at a slight angle will cut to its maximum depth and not be able to proceed further in narrow or thin lines. The wider the line or engraved area, the deep the laser can cut and the better the wax seal impression. We are unable to guarantee a good wax seal impression unless these guidelines are adhered to. Please indicate with a red circle where your design is to fit on the stamp, otherwise we will fit the design how we feel it will be best suitable.
Instructions for submitting your own artwork and creating your own designs
All artwork supplied must be 'Production Ready'. Black and white and have sharp, clean lines and require no retouching. When emailing artwork please name your files with your first and last name or company name. All artwork is reversed at the engraving process, please don't submit a mirror image for engraving. If you image is very busy in detail, please consider if some design elements could be removed and yet still convey the spirit of your design. We are able enhance or re-draw a poor image at extra cost, which will be evaluated on the amount of work involved. Artwork fees will apply based on time.
FILE FORMATS ACCEPTED FOR ENGRAVING
ADOBE - PDF, AI, ESP, SVG VECTOR
Artwork should be BLACK ONLY on a white background, NO layers, hidden images, FONTS must be converted to 'OBJECTS ONLY' as we cannot be responsible for font format changing on opening your file if we do not have the font installed on our system. No Overlapping images or lines, please combine objects. The file should not contain multiple images hidden within the file as this creates problems when out-putting to the laser engraver. There will be a surcharge for any additional artwork that needs to be rectified prior to engraving.
BLACK on WHITE Background, page size A5-A4 minium, 300dpi (we may be able to convert lower dpi if the image is sharp and of a large size) Low resolution images will result in a loss of definition of the design on converting to vector.
Size as per your stamp required, NO OUTLINES, BLACK ONLY, FONTS converted to Curves, Combine overlapping images with the WELD feature, ALL Paths must be CLOSED, or this will cause a conflict with the engraving process. Please view your artwork in WIREFRAME Mode, to ensure the above conditions are met, as they may not be visable in NORMAL mode. If your image or font does not appear thick enough, add a Contour to thicken and take away the original image.
As a guide we would recommend that the text should not be smaller than pt 8 -9 (this can vary depending on the font used - we have used Arial for example), as most fonts are too thin to engrave, this will also need to be thickened with a contour, so adequate space around the letters is required. Delicate fonts are not suitable as edge text as this will result in a poor wax seal impression due to the thinness of the lines. We recommend a line thickness of approx 0.8 - 1mm or more for a good wax seal impression.
The drawing on the left was scanned at 300dpi and printing onto white gloss A4 card at full size, hand painting into a stencil effect using black and white Gouache paint, as the paint is opaque, you can paint the white over the black. The final painting is then re-scanned at 300dpi, lineart - fine quality mode, to give a good jpg image to work with for engraving. The scanned painting is then traced into vector format using Corel Trace to give an image for engraving.
Bear in mind when creating designs for laser engraving, that you do not use thin lines in your design, the laser burns deep, so thin areas may not make an imprint in the wax. Black filled areas work best where possible. Thin fonts will need to have a contour applied to make them heavier.
Submitted Designs not up to the above recommendations may require editing or even redrawing altogether, there is an extra fee for this service, ranging from simple touching up, to a total redraw of your design, you will be advised of this prior to your ordering and advised the scale of service you need to select in the shopping cart.

High quality seal stamp. Very easy ordering process from start to finish. Quick turnaround time too, much appreciated.
this is about the 8th seal we have purchased from here. they are the best. Work is incredible and it comes quickly.
I was hugely impressed with the product AND the service I received - the speedy and helpful responses to my queries and the quality of what I actually received were second-to-none - I heartily recommend!!
If only I could post pictures along with this review, because my words simply cannot do the stamp I received justice. I had been looking for a reliable company that could do wonders with personalising wax seal stamps and Custom Wax 'N' Seals did exactly that! I came across these and was amazed at the sheer selection of stamps available. There's so many to choose from, that it's hard to make a decision. However I already had an idea of what I wanted, so got in touch with Sam who was very friendly and patient (I'm a bit of a ditherer you see!) Even though I emailed Sam a few times with regards to my design and additions, she was ever so patient and more than happy to accommodate so that I could get the design I had envisioned. What I really liked was that Sam sent me the designs as they would appear on a stamp once they had been resized etc, so I could see what they'd look like and if there needed to be any alterations or additions before going through with the design. I love that everything is created right here in the UK and is done professionally, with care and attention to detail. Was really excited for my stamp to arrive and it didn't seem to take long at all from when my stamp was 'in production' to being dispatched and arriving on my doorstep. The stamp was sent securely via tracked service which was great. Upon opening the beautifully presented contents, wrapped up in lovely blue paper was my wax seal stamp and I must say... I was super impressed once more! Cannot fault it at all and have already used it in one of my letters. Many thanks to you Sam and to all at Custom Wax 'N' Seals for a fabulous product, I would certainly recommend!
I just wanted to say thank you so much and WOW! I’ve just received it and its amazing! Thanks for bringing my family crest to life. Wishing you all much success and satisfaction in all you do!
Stamp as requested and helpful throughout
Great to deal with. Great standard of product
The process of designing the stamp was enjoyable and easy I sent Sam a few images I liked and requested a Celtic border. Sam quickly put together a design that combined features from my two images and a nice border. The stamp itself is well made and lovely to look at and leaves a crystal clear stamp when I put it to use. Extremely happy with the service I received would highly recommend.
I have used this company many times and have always been very happy with the service - highly recommend!
