This is a seal for making impressions on sealing wax of the Peace Sign. Traditionally a symbol of peace (obviously), it is also sometimes associated with the hippie movement of the 1960's and environmentalism. It's also the official ballot symbol for the Green Party (at least in New York, perhaps other states too).
A wax seal adds old fashioned panache and class to envelopes and documents. Before self-adhesive envelopes, everyone used a seal of some kind to keep messages private. In our present day of emails and instant messaging, taking the time to write a letter makes a message stand out as important, worth taking the time to think carefully and spend money on paper, ink, wax, postage, etc. A wax seal makes sure that your letter is noticed among the junk mail.
The top of the handle is marked to make it much easier to align the impression and avoid setting it upside down or crooked.
Premium sealing wax can be ordered through our main website
or Etsy Store
. Gold, Silver, or Bone White would be appropriate for using it to mean peace, Kelly Green or Forest Green would indicate more towards environmentalism or the Green Party.
Please use caution when working with fire and hot wax to avoid burns.
