Our First International Design Award!
As a small family-owned business we are extremely proud of the name that we have carved for ourselves within the Wax Seal industry. For the first time in our relatively short 5 year history we have been recognised for our efforts in innovation and creativity by one of the world's leading International Design Awards.
ALUMA (our Kickstarter-funded project) has been awarded with the iF Design Award 2018.
A jury of 63 independent international design experts came together over three days to review 6,401 entries from 54 countries worldwide, and ultimately chose our project as one of the winners. For those that are unfamiliar with iF, it is essentially the Oscars of the design world and is now in its 65th year running.
About the ALUMA
The ALUMA is the first Wax Seal of its kind to feature a revolutionary magnetic fitting, allowing the user to switch quickly and easily between multiple engraved stamp head designs.
We first launched the idea via Kickstarter in December 2017 and by the end of the 30-day campaign, 218 backers had pledged a total of HK$ 143,720 to help bring the project to life. As well as being featured on a number of well-known design blogs, Kickstarter also featured us as one of their 'Projects We Love' which is a notable award in itself.
The ALUMA is currently in pre-production at the time of writing (Feb 2018), and will be due for release to the general public once all Kickstarter rewards have been shipped in April.

(UPDATE: March 26th) We had a great time in Munich attending the awards ceremony and can't wait for people to get their hands on this award-winning wax seal!
