The history of wax stamps and embossers has been around almost as long as civilized man. These forms of seals were originally used to secure a parcel or letter with a symbol or family crest that would be easily recognizable by the recipient of the correspondence. They were primarily used by members of Royalty or those that were considered upper class members of a given society. Emperors, Kings, Queens, Senators, Dictators and wealthy local merchants or land owners would use them to signify their identity on all sorts of documents, land deeds, or rights of ownership papers.
Wax stamps and embossers were also commonly used to ensure the integrity of a document or parcel. If the seal had been tampered with the recipient would be able to tell immediately and therefore had the right to question the authenticity of any contents that may have been included. Using wax as a base for the seal was an intelligent invention of the time. Altered seals couldnt be repaired adequately enough to hide any disfiguring damage caused by tampering with the seal. Couriers that were responsible for transporting these documents or parcels were often placed at risk of severe harm or death if the information wasnt delivered securely with the seal intact.
In the modern era wax stamps are more commonly used for special occasions as opposed to being used on an everyday basis to conduct correspondence with individuals. These embossers are custom made creations that are normally designed by the requesting party. Some individuals, families or certain business establishments may elect to use them for the correspondence they send through the regular mail system; however they are
more commonly associated with events like weddings or engagements of a specific nature.
Customers can use wax stamps and embossers for anything they have an imagination for. Some of the unique ideas might be in the field of education where teachers could use them to display authentic appearing fixtures to work that has been completed above and beyond expectations. Others may elect to use them at the office or place of business for inter departmental communications if a minute amount of security is required or as just an authentic looking addition. There really is no limit to what they can be used for and they will add an air of authenticity to even the smallest parcel.
Wax stamps and embossers also make nice gift giving ideas for special occasions. If the individual receiving the gift has a special monogram, emblem, symbol or other form of family identifying crest, having it recreated on one of these unique seals will provide them with something that can be treasured for a lifetime. They can also be passed down from one generation to the next and kept as honored family heirlooms. These gifts are always appreciated by the recipient regardless of how often they intend to use it and for what purposes it will serve since the basic idea of having one at their disposal is often enough to remind them of the thoughtfulness behind the person giving the gift.
