A New Idea
Why not use crayons for making wax seals? They are wax, come in pretty colors and are incredibly inexpensive!
Yet crayons cost only pennies comparably. You can get a $1 pack of 24 crayons that should eek out about two stamps per crayon. It could be quite a savings if you’re doing a bulk mailing.
Wax Seal Usage
Now you may ask yourself…Isn’t wax stamping a dying art? Yes and no. Although people are sending fewer snail mail letters these days, many still send invitations in hard copy.
Wedding invitations in particular often use a seal or wax stamp. Since I’ve substituted crayons in other wax projects, I can’t see why using them for envelope stamping wouldn’t work.
If you get the chance to use a crayon instead of a wax bead or stick, shoot me a comment to let me know how it worked out. Otherwise, it will take a few weeks for me to get back to folks and report how the exchange worked.
