Once you start looking around at the snailmail options available today, you realise that while wax seals may be a thing of the very distant past (for some historical facts check out this article on the Art of Manliness website) they have never died out in the face of flashy technology. In fact, the popularity of the wax seal. Search Etsy or Amazon for wax seals and you will find all sorts of designs on the market.

There are tutorials on the interwebs, like this one from Offbeat Bride, which shows you how to make a wax seal out a button and a chess piece. Don't have fancy chess pieces? How about going simple and using wine bottles corks instead.

I've raised my button stash and found some lovely potentials for a wax seal. When I find the time to give it a go, I will share pictures.
