7seals' Shop Announcement

7 Seals is a family-owned shop consisting primarily of handcrafted wooden waxing stamps as well as a variety of other crafts and art that either I or my wife Nikki creates. I’m Marc, and I'm excited to be able to share my passion for artisan craftsmanship with you.

I began making my own waxing stamps when I visited a small stationery shop in downtown New Orleans that featured a variety of sealing stamps and was sad to hear they didn’t offer any custom or personalized stamps for what I felt was a reasonable price. Beginning with only a wooden dowel and a box cutter to work with (which, by the way, I do NOT recommend!), I began creating stamps, improving my design with each new attempt. Now, I offer a variety of signature wooden waxing stamps in several different types of wood, as well as custom orders, which I greatly enjoy doing. Wax seals are the art of a bygone era, and I love the elegance and personal touch that they bring to correspondence, packages, or any other project.

As pastor of a small church plant in New Orleans, I created 7 Seals as a way to generate income to support my family while also being able to live out my spiritual calling. Every purchase from this shop goes to support our efforts to serve the city of New Orleans and contribute to the arts and DIY community. Thank you for spreading the love!
