J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax

J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax Review and Giveaway!

Welcome back to another exciting review and giveaway! This week, we’re reviewing a brand new item that just arrived this week. We are now carrying Seals and Sealing Wax from J Herbin. This week’s review will be on the J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax, however there are different types of wax, and different seals. Many of you have requested we start carrying Seals and Sealing Wax, and we do our best to fulfill your requests.

Qualities

J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax is made to withstand the adventures of the Post. After the wax cools, it remains “Supple” and flexible. This allows it to bend instead of breaking, as some older-style wax can have happen. Also, it is crack resistant which helps it to arrive to its destination without any unexpected additions to the design. The Supple Sealing Wax is sold in packs of four, and each stick will make approximately seven wax seals. That totals out to approximately twenty-eight wax seals a pack, for $16.50 USD.

J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax is super easy to use, and you only need a few tools! Here is a list of what you will need to use the Supple Sealing Wax:

  1. Matches/lighter
  2. Candle
  3. Toothpicks
  4. Melting Spoon
  5. J Herbin Supple Sealing Wax Stick
  6. Envelope/Stationary
  7. J Herbin Brass Seal

First, you will want to light your candle. The candle will allow you to have both hands free while melting the wax in the melting spoon, and will help to provide a constant heat source. Next, cut off  approximately a 1/3″ piece of wax to place in the spoon. After you have placed the piece of wax in the melting spoon, hold the spoon about an inch over the flame. After the wax starts to melting, slowly move it around in the spoon with the toothpick until the entire piece is melted. Be careful to not melt the wax too far, as you don’t want it to be too runny. After you have the wax to the desired consistency, pour the wax onto the envelope/stationary that you plan to seal. Then, take your seal, and firmly press it into the pool of wax. Allow the wax to cool and solidify before removing the seal. If you are making multiple seals, you can quick-set the wax, by letting your seal sit on ice before pressing it into the wax. If you are using ice, please note to wipe off any condensation on a towel/cloth.

Natalie C.

Very nice!

Harry Marks

My favorite sealing wax color is blue, just because it’s a little different from the norm, but this color is stunning.

Nicole S

Does anyone have experience with how these hold up in the mail? I remember when I was getting married we were warned that sending invitations with seals could get extra expensive because they had to be handled by hand instead of going through the auto sorter.

DUMONTIER Marjorie

It’s a hard to tell which is my favourite wax color since I’ve never tried any but maybe a genuine red or a mixed one like gold and red.

James M.

I’ve used regular non-supple sealing wax before, but I’m sure the supple version would be a lot better if I want to send it through the mail. Thanks for the review and offer!

Sandra M

I’ve been wanting to try out wax seals for a while now. Only thing that’s kept me from doing so is my indecisiveness at picking what seal to use. Thanks for the giveaway!

Nabi

Thanks for give away

C

A mossy green or dark purple would be the best colors for a wax seal.
