I already had my seal designed and made for me by Custom Wax 'n' Seals many years ago now. For me this wasn't to be a mere gift box, as such, but for me to house things properly. That, and I was intrigued by the spirit burner, the antique style handle and a bigger spoon too. It is always a joy to order something that you think is a pretty neat idea. To then have your expectations of it gloriously surpassed is such a treat. It is utterly functional; charming and stylish in its appearance and it is all mine! Even the unpacking the thoughtfully packed and promptly delivered parcel was a part of the pleasure. It also has my seal design beautifully engraved in brass on the lid and compliments my, let's be coy here, my enormous pedestal desk perfectly. What delighted me also was that Custom Wax 'n' Seals still had my seal design to hand and so there was no problem at all getting that done. It goes well beyond the level of a "Gift Box" I would say. It is not a master craftsman's piece with dovetail joints and wotnot either, but it is extremely practical, well designed and well made, nonetheless. I consider it to be well worth the money that I spent on it.

This is an absolutely fantastic piece of work that I was unable to find an equal to while searching for the right company to make my custom stamp a reality! In addition to the beauty of the piece, the help that Jackie provided in retooling and finalizing my design was invaluable and superb! Thank you for creating what is destined to be an heirloom!
An absolutely great product. I sent a personalised design that I'm using for my wedding invites, the logo was etched onto the stamp and on the top of the box. This is the kind of item that would be passed down through generations - it's so unique and superb quality. The box is beautifully made and the whole as a set is just brilliant! It came with 3 pre-made wax seals too, plus the presentation box (which is what the rosewood box comes in) was beautiful. Really happy with my purchase :) so happy!
I received my stamp and box today and LOVE IT!! I showed it to my friend Hanna and she was VERY impressed! I look forward to using it when I write letters to friends and family. Thank you for having an honest business and quality products! Such a nice surprise in the digital online shopping world!! I will definitely be ordering again!!! Brian
The box is very solid and of excellent quality. The brass implements are likewise satisfyingly solid and heavy. However I have the following criticisms which in my view spoil the product. 1. The brass latch hanging from the lid is thin and tinny and looks cheap. 2. The thin brass edging strips on the lid are unnecessary and aesthetically unpleasing . The appearence would be improved without them. 3. The irregular blot like shape of the plaque on the lid looks cheap and tasteless. This would be much more attractive if it were a simple circle or oblong/square. I liked the seal itself very much. The design of the Victorian intertwined letters is pleasing to the eye and the imprint is deep with crisp and clear definition. In my view if points 1 to 3 above were followed the product would perfect. Thank you for your review Lister - we are now down to our last few gift boxes, our new arriving early 2017 will not have the catch on the front, as each box is polished prior to despatch this catch has been problematic when polishing the boxes, secondly the random appearance of the cartouche on the lid of the box, although to you may be cheap and tasteless is actually to outline of our wax seal logo and therefore identifies it as one of our products, we feel that the shape identifies the product as a wax seal gift rather than a trinket box. We do appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time.
This is a beautifully made box and is a great way to store and present my bespoke wax seal. Thanks for all of your help, Jackie!
I had purchased the stamp & seal from this company because of the beautiful Deluxe Handmade Rosewood Wax Seal Giftbox option. No other company was offering anything close to it.
This is such an awesome presentation box - it even better in real life. This really makes the gift extra special. Great customer service and answered all my questions very quickly!
Hi Jackie, Delighted with (all) the products and beautifully presented. Met my expectations and more, would certainly recommend your excellent service/goods to family and friends. A big thank you from Scotland. Until next time. Best Regards, Sandra
I was indecisive about ordering a presentation box but my need to have everything match decided for me and I am so glad that I did. The shipping was fast and arrived before the estimated date. The packaging was beautifully presented, and the box itself is just so perfect. The quality of everything is just so exceptional, and I love having everything I need together. Jackie was absolutely wonderful with answering my questions through my ordering service, and she went above and beyond to ensure that everything was just so perfect. Thank you so much!
