Melt over a flame or in a spoon or melting device.
Not for use with a glue gun.
This line of J.Herbin wax is Old World traditional, it is
not designed to withstand the postal process.
We highly recommend this gorgeous wax for use with hand delivered items, gift wrap, certificates, or to create a seal which will crack upon bending.
If you would like to use a J.Herbin wax for mailing,
we suggest their Supple Wax & Pearlescent Wax lines.
As this security wax is sensitive to shock, the batons may crack during shipment from France.
If the batons break into pieces, our melting spoon can easily hold small bits for melting over a flame.
J. Herbin Cire Banque is the standard in sealing waxes, and
has remained unchanged since 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.
Recommended for Advanced Sealers
As always, there was fantastic shipping times, and extremely high quality! Even wrapped in my little letter seals box, it stands out for its rustic and high quality. I would recommend this for advanced users. As someone a bit new to letter seals I found it a bit hard to work with; it dries incredibly fast and has a pretty high melting point. Even as I'm pouring it, I barely have enough time to place my stem before it hardens. But! None the less, I love the quality and color - incredibly high quality. Makes me feel official!! >3
Easy to use. Seals well. Embossed well. Snaps apart well. Excellent product. Great shipping and care on handling. Will order again!
Beautiful Custom Brass Work
Thank you so much for the immaculate brass letter seal. I could not imagine a better quality piece. Made and shipped in record time as well!
A nice purchasing experience
It was a very nice experience for an international purchase, especially I received a warm complimentary mail after my order was placed; most seller won't do that. I appreciate that very much. However, one of the silver sealing waxes was fractured during shipping. I understand they are extremely fragile thus fracture can easily happen, so I don't blame you for this. I suggest that you fortify the packaging with tightened bubble or cushion material sothat the sealing waxes won't shake. That's my humble opinion. I still highly regard the way you do business, and I will be very happy to order from you again. Best regards, Lin
