Christmas is a time for giving but as a result of this it is unfortunately also a time for excessive environmental waste. From wrapping paper to Christmas cards, there are many ways that the festive season can have a negative impact on the planet. One way to reduce your environmental impact this Christmas is to use ink stamps.
Wax seals have a long and interesting history, dating back thousands of years. They were first used in ancient civilisations, such as Mesopotamia and Egypt, to seal important documents and messages. However, it was during the Middle Ages that wax seal stamps usage grew. During this time, they were used by nobles, clergymen and rulers as a mark of authority and authenticity, often used to seal royal charters, treaties and other personal documents like love letters.
