Melissa, I found it tough to get most anything to stick to the wax and always stick my label to the wet wax and put another coat over it to make it seal. I used small square of freezer paper so the ink would not bleed through. I don’t use wax much anymore because it was hard to stop mold from forming under it. I started to put a coat of Paracoat under the wax which works great. Then I just started using Paracoat alone and have almost no issues.
