Wax Seals from Backtozero

Wax Seals from Backtozero

The wax seal, or variations thereof, has been around for literally thousands of years, and I have a hunch that this classic means of identification used on envelopes and other important documents is going to be one of the hot trends in the coming year and beyond.

There’s just something so tactilely gratifying about a raised seal design, surrounded by a unique wax silhouette. Mmmhmmm. I cannot get enough of that gorgeous texture.

These wax seals from Hong Kong-based Backtozero immediately caught my eye, and I think you can understand why. Their assortment of beautiful wax seals includes everything from classic crests to monograms, botanicals, and florals, and I love that they’ve added more modern looks to the mix with hand lettered and geometric designs that are sure to appeal to the more trend conscious eye.

Here’s just a little selection of what Backtozero has to offer, and you’ll want to head over to their shop to see all of their wonderful wax seal designs. They offer “design your own” options, too!

Amelia Flower Illustrated Greeting Cards

I am totally digging these fun and quirky, illustrated greeting cards from Cheltenham, UK-based Amelia Flower, which feature everything and everyone from socks and shoes to bananas and booze, with a plethora of yogis and beachgoers to boot.

These wonderfully whimsical cards will be just as welcome in mailboxes as they will be on walls as framed art pieces, and you can see all of the available illustrated cards in the Amelia Flower shop.
