Product Description

LASER ENGRAVED WAX SEAL STAMP SCALE A, personally engraved to your own custom artwork - various wax seal stamp sizes available.

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 jackie@thedesignstation.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)

DESPATCH WITHIN 7 WORKING DAYS. 

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.

 JPG FORMAT 
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. 

COREL DRAW - CDR, CMX, WMF
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.
 
 
TEXT SIZES
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. 
 
 LASER ENGRAVING works by burning away artwork that is shown as black in the design, try to steer away from thin lines within your design, as when engraved they will be too deep and not pick up in the wax. Try to image your design as a stencil - see example below. The image on the left would not engrave well, but will turn out much better when converted to the image on the right. 
 unicornexample.jpg

wrong                         right 

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.

    Posted by on 16th Dec 2017

    I've just took delivery of my first stamp and it has exceeded my expectations. Ordering process was faultless, delivery quicker than expected, and the wife will be happy with the included chocolates. I forgot to order wax with the stamp so thought I would have to wait to see the finished seal, but found a couple of the peel n stick seals made out of my stamp, and they look perfect, FAR better than I expected. Well done Jackie on your superb service and you now have a customer for life. Thank you.
    Our pleasure Tony, credit also goes to John, Pam & Taryn who complete the process :)

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2017

    Dear Jackie,
    I just wanted to thank you and your team (belatedly) for the wonderful wax seal and wax, not to mention the chocolate which was delivered promptly and which we are already putting to good use for our Christmas mailings.
    I don't know if a text endorsement is any use to you for the future but I am happy to provide one;
    "Using the time-honoured and artistic method of wax sealing is a wonderful way to deepen the impact of written correspondence. At Christian Heritage we are delighted with the quality and efficiency of the custom seal service Custom Wax N' Seals supplied. The seal gives our written documents a special edge which is at the same time both novel and yet evocative of the best of the past. Thank you, Custom Wax N' Seals!"
    Warm regards,
