J. Herbin Waxes are created in France from recipes dating back to the 1670's.

Their King's wax is historically a wax used by royalty for securing and authenticating documents.

Each of the seven colors is very richly developed, and has a beautiful lacquer shine.

* Wick style sticks
* 4 ¾" x 5/8" x 3/8”"
* Purchase as  Single Sticks: $7  | Box of 5 Sticks: $30
* 15 to 20 seals per stick



This line of J.Herbin wax offers beautifully rich colors.

The waxes are flexible enough for most mailing situations.

La Societe J. Herbin, Maitre Cirier a Paris, was established in 1670.

Generations of remarkable people, from Louis XIV to Coco Chanel, have used this traditional sealing wax, and it is well known around the world as one of the highest quality sealing waxes ever made.

J. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax.
His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

Then, as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling.  J. Herbin has supplied Chanel from its beginning with wax used for finishing touches on their perfume bottles.

Letter Wax

I am very happy with my purchase! I have been looking for better wax for some time, but other sites were lacking information. Letter Seals had information down to the type of paper the wax could be used on! So helpful! I also found a product to prevent the seal from sticking to the wax. My seals look amazing in this wax as well. Would highly recommend to anyone. Love Letter Seals, and their products!! Will continue to purchase from them.


J. Herbin sealing wax

Of all the sealing wax brands which I have used (and I have had experience with most), the original J. Herbin King's wax is the very best. It melts beautifully and produces excellent colour, overall. It is very much worth its price.

So Very Special...

This is my first experience with J. Herbin Kings Sealing Wax. I say with tremendous appreciation, this wax is excellent! Beyond excellent...I had dreams of what a seal and wax could be as an experience for me...this exceeds my thoughts about the beauty of a sealing wax. I have only previously experienced wax I thought was of a good quality. Comparatively speaking, the difference is amazing and almost astonishing. The first waxes I have all blackened as they were dripped and by the time the sealing was complete, it just appeared dirty. For the first time, I am using my new J. Herbin blackness...the color shines through...the wax has a different type of clarity and it is easy to use. What a treat indeed!

J. Herbin Kings Sealing Wax

I bought the J. Herbin Kings Sealing Wax in Midnight Blue and a wax seal stamp with Pegasus. The wax has a nice sheen to it and the seal leaves a wonderful deep impression with lots of detail. I’ve not come across too many waxes that need the stamp to be lubricated, but this is definitely one of those waxes that does. On my first attempt, I found myself having a heck of a time getting the seal off of the wax. So, make sure you buy some of that Wax Seal Non-Stick and save yourself a headache.
