#1 : What is the difference between Wax Seal Stamps, Chocolate Stamps and Ice Stamps?
Last Updated: 10/29/2019
The type of engraving is the difference between these stamps.


Wax Seal Stamps are engraved so that the art is engraved into the brass die, which then makes a raised impression in wax. This stamp is typically engraved at 0.75mm to 1mm depth. The artwork should be submitted with the background in white and the art itself in black. There are some occasions where there are negative areas within positive areas on some art, and that is ok.

Chocolate Stamps
are engraved the same way, except a bit deeper as chocolate does not hold the impression quite as well as sealing wax. In addition, a food safe coating is applied to the Brass. The artwork should be submitted with the background in white and the art itself in black.

Ice Stamps
are engraved in reverse, meaning the background is engraved (or cut away) and the art itself is raised on the stamp, creating a debossed image into the ice. This is because the ice is a hard surface, and can only be debossed, not raised. In addition, these stamps are engraved three times the normal depth so that the stamp can penetrate the hard surface. The artwork should be submitted with the background in black and the art itself in white.


Summary:

Order a Wax Seal Stamp if you want to create raised images in wax, chocolate, silver for jewelry or other SOFT SURFACES. In some cases we can also engrave stamps to be engraved in reverse, for example for cookies which is a medium surface and you can either deboss or raise.

Order Ice stamp if you want to deboss into hard surfaces.
