HISTORY OF SEALING WAX
Since time immemorial, the seal has served as a stamp of
indisputable authenticity, just as a signature is accepted
in the world today.
Seals were first used by kings and governments long
ago. New laws and proclamations required the
authoritative stamp of a seal. During Medieval Times,
almost everyone had their own seal, but Royalty would
own several, including their own "Great Seal", as well as
seals for all their courts and officials. It was common
practice to destroy a person's seal once the owner died;
hence the reason so few original seals have survived.
Long ago, betrothals were pre-arranged, therefore true
words of love were secretly written and the envelope's
contents was secured by a wax seal, so that the recipient
could be assured that their passion would be unknown to
others. A broken wax seal implied broken trust...and no
person of integrity would tamper with a wax emblem.
By using our sealing wax along with your own personal
seal, you too will continue this time-honored tradition,
even in today's hi tech world.
We feature the finest sealing wax made for over 300
years by the same Scottish factory, who still employs
artisans using the same dies and molds of yesteryear.
Get back into style, and seal your correspondence with a
taste of tradition.
