Not too long ago, I ordered an item off Etsy and with it, the seller had included a thank you note, complete with a wax seal. It was a small touch and yet, it felt so fancy. In an era where it’s easy to feel frustrated by mail — it’s bills or ads or ads with bills — that tiny flair for the decadent made the entire package feel so thoughtful. It got me thinking a lot about how we’ve seen a love of love for all things Regency this year, including a huge viewership and subsequent readership for Bridgerton.

Regencycore is, along with dark academia, goblincore, cottagecore, and more, an aesthetic that encourages leaning into one’s interests and passions. In this case, it’s for all things Regency-era inspired, including romance, signature silhouettes, sexiness, and more. We can absolutely thank Bridgerton for making this happen, and we can thank Regencycore for an uptick in things like letter writing and all of the flourishes and finery that can come with handwritten notes.

This, of course, includes gorgeous wax seals.

Whether you’re a hardcore letter writer, a periodic mail sender, or are looking ahead to sending out holiday cards, be it for winter holidays, Valentine’s Day, or other card-friendly occasions, consider adding some wax stamps to add an extra special touch. Wax seals come in so many clever designs and chances are, once you pick one, you’ll fall in love and may want to dabble in becoming a wax seal collector.

Let’s take a look at some options for beautiful wax seals for all of your Regencycore needs. Some of these will be self-adhesive wax seals and others will require you select some gorgeous wax to use with the stamp.
