Wax Seals

Wax Seals are awesome as fuck... I have no idea why these went out of style. They're probably the most stylish thing I've ever seen.

Basically, in case anybody doesn't know - you put a blob of wax on the seal of an envelope. You stamp it with your own "insignia" or whatever, so the recipient of the letter knows who you are. They also know that nobody has opened it (opening the letter breaks the seal, obviously).

I'm going to get a stamp made up.. a really awesome one, (see this post for an idea) as soon as possible, and start posting some fucken letters, man.
