The shape of the wax stamp doesn’t make a difference to me- I honestly had to scroll back and forth a few times to notice the difference.
You will likely need to pay more in postage, since its determined by weight. Oh, and whatever you do, seal the envelopes by licking them first. DO NOT just rely on the wax seal…I’ve heard horror stories about envelopes busting open and people never getting their invitation.
I really like the champagne colored square one! Round red ones always remind me of the cover of “The Secret”.
You’re fine to do it with any hot glue gun, you do not need adjustable temperature, just make sure not to get a low temp gun.
And i said round because I like the way the wax squishies around it better 🙂
I put a wax seal on my invitations. You do need a low-temp glue gun. I just bought one from the same website I bought my wax becuase I didn’t have one. I don’t know if you could use a glue gun that didn’t specify low temp. Even with my low-temp glue gun the wax would seep out of the tip a little bit while I was prepping the envelopes. I imagine it would be worse if the glue gun was not low-temp.
I put the wax on the inner envelope so I wouldn’t have to worry about it getting caught in any sorting machines (I did not hand cancel). Mine was still within the weight limit, and was still flat enough, so I didn’t have to pay any extra postage. So overall, I didn’t have any issues mailing the invitations.
I like both the round and square options.
I used wax seals, looooved them! Super easy in a hot glue gun.
Oh, and my seals were on the pocketfolthe to the outer envelopes. I hand canceled. No one received a damaged invitation.
thanks for the info ladies.. I was very interested in doing the wax seal and now i’m sold!
***Update*** Here’s how my glue gun wax seals turned out. The glue/wax is a rasberry pink color and had to order the glue gun sticks from etsy because I could not find this color ANYWHERE else! I hand cancelled them and it was an extra .20 each because they couldn’t go though the sorting machines, which is a good thing so they will all stay intact! Totally worth the extra $10 I had to spend on postage!!
