Our process honors traditional marbling techniques. Marbling is an intensive process with each sheet of paper created one at a time. You can never replicate a design identically but you can create sheets that are consistent with each other with respect to color and overall general style if they are created during the same marbling session. It is because of this meticulous process that we offer our products in limited releases.
No. All of our designs are copyright and cannot be reproduced without license. If you are looking for a specific design please reach out to discuss exclusive design services.
I proudly handcraft our marbled paper in my studio located in Long Beach, California.
Yes. Our seals are made of flexible wax but we strongly recommend using one of the following methods:
(1) Use an Outer Envelope. Using an outer envelope will help protect your wax seal from damage during transit.
(2) Request Hand Cancelling. There is always the potential that seals may get damaged if they are run through a post office sorting machine so it is best to ask your local post office to "hand cancel" your letters. The post office charges extra to hand cancel an envelope, but it is worth the nominal cost to ensure that your seal arrives safely.
I have sent letters without using an outer envelope or hand canceling. In my experience, it has been a bit of a hit or miss. In some cases, the seals have arrived slightly warped (most likely due to the heat of a sorting machine). It is best to use one or both of the options above so you're simply not hoping your wax seals arrive without damage.
Sheets of paper are securely rolled in a tube or packed flat depending on size.
