About This Class

In this class, Laura will teach you how to create a custom wax seal stamp for your wedding invitations or business packaging.

Wax seals are a fantastic way to add a touch of classic high-end personalization to your collateral.

Learn how to design, order and stamp your wax seal.

You will draw a basic wreath or design, take a photo, edit it with Adobe Photoshop and vectorize it in Adobe Illustrator. After you order your stamp, you’ll learn the basics of using glue gun wax to stamp your wax seal.

It’s best if you have some basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, though it’s not required.

Supplies:

  • White paper
  • Black marker
  • Camera (phone camera works!)
  • Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator
  • Glue Gun
  • Glue Gun Wax
  • Ice pack and wax paper
