The Design Station Ltd (incorporating Custom Wax N' Seals & MyPersonalJewellery)
a family run business based in the heart of the Midlands (or to all my International customers - central England)
Custom Wax n' Seals was born quite by chance, after initially selling a few pre-made stock design wax seals and sealing wax made by Stuart Houghton Ltd, I decided to produce my own wax seal stamps. The stamp heads were originally engineering by my father 'John Norman Hadley (now sadly no longer with us and greatly missed), and brother Alan Hadley of GETi Ltd www.fatcowdesigns.co.uk (a leading supplier of Laser engraved Titanium Wedding rings and agent for Sisma Laser). The solid beech handles are made by a woodturner in London, with my own Antique Design handle reproduced from an original Antique handle (cc 1800's) I found for sale on Ebay many years ago. The handles are then all hand finished during the summer months when the weather is nice and John can sit out in our garden working away in the sunshine (if we are lucky in the UK that is).
All the Custom Designs (from Initials to Company Logos) were originally laser engraved in Nottingham, but are now engraved on our own premises on our own Laser Engraving Machine, which we find gives us greater control over the finished effect, including depth, and the range seal sizes we are able to now offer.
The Designs are all created by myself or John, from Initial Designs, Victorian Monograms, Family Crests, and Scottish Clans, and now our new range of 'Peel N' Stick wax seal impressions, which are totally handmade to order and can be turned around in a day or two (small quantities only). If there is a logo, design or initials that you would like produced that is not on our website, please email or call us and we will do our utmost to try to produce it for you.
