There's no doubt that wax seals add a wow factor to any envelope, but did you know that there are other ways to use these gorgeous old-fashioned embellishments? Read below about some untraditional uses for them.
1. Pretty up your place cards.
Setting the table with place cards is always a good idea, but adding extra detail with a custom wax seal makes them extra special. This is a great place to bring in your monogram, or a design motif that you've been using throughout your paper or decor.
2. Adorn your menus or programs.
Like with place cards, simple menus or programs can get a boost with the addition of a wax seal. Imagine a line of letterpressed text complemented with a crisp, metallic wax seal. Come on.
3. Seal your gift tags.
Leave your personal mark on every gift you give by placing your seal on plain gift tags along with your short message.
4. Bring back the calling card.
Business cards should not be reserved for those in business. I love the idea of bringing back the old idea of a calling card, complete with your name, phone number, email address, etc. Add a wax seal and you're sure to make an impression with new acquaintances and friends.
5. Skip the envelope.
Don't have an envelope but want to write your husband a sweet note for his lunch box? A wax seal will add a level of thoughtful care to your correspondence, however quotidian.
