The Art of the Handwritten Letter

In today's fast-paced world, the act of writing letters by hand is often overlooked. However, a handwritten letter is a special gesture that shows you care. Handwriting is unique and personal, making it a gift that is worth treasuring, whether it's from a loved one who has passed away or from a child who has grown up. Take some time this month to write a letter to someone you care for. You can even make it more special by sealing it with a wax stamp.

Supplies needed

Wax Sealing Stick

Sealing Stamp

Match or Lighter

How to apply a wax seal:

Light the wick and hold the stick parallel to the work surface.

Let wax slowly drip into a coin sized circle onto the paper. It’s tempting to angle the stick down to increase the speed of drips but avoid this as pieces of soot will fall into the wax and discolor it.

Blow out the flame and set the stick aside.

Press the sealing stamp onto the melted wax. Hold for a few seconds before lifting away. If it sticks, gently rock the seal back and forth to release.

*Wax seals are able to be sent through the mail but you may consider an additional outer envelope to protect it from potential damage.
