『古老的火漆——Seal Wax

BBC英剧《福尔摩斯》有这么一幕,华生在自家门口贝尔街221B号收到了一封信函,封口处赫然是鲜红的火漆印。

火漆,兴起于欧洲的十六世纪,贵族富豪广泛使用,作为重要文件信函的封缄。别名为封印蜡,封蜡,火漆蜡,封口漆,封口蜡,火漆戳,火漆印,英文名字seal wax, wax seal stamp, wax seal sealing wax),松脂、石腊、焦油加颜料混合加热制成,稍加热就融化并具有黏性,烧化滴落于信封封口,然后用饰以繁复精致的图案的印章盖戳,后形成厚厚的涂层,以达到防范机要文件信函被拆的作用。火漆封缄需要火漆以及金属火漆印章。

接下来,我将带大家重返十六世纪的古欧,解封火漆章的魅力故事。


About wax seal stamps

Wax seal stamps are a great addition to any letter or invitation you want to add a more personal touch to.

They also ensure that no matter how bulky your envelope ends up being, it will not come undone while in route to the person you are mailing it to.

 

Why Use Wax Seal Stamps?

Some people use wax seal stamps for personal letters to their family and friends while others prefer to use them only on special occasions. You can use them on invitations to a party or a wedding and you can use them on your holiday greeting cards.

Some use it to simply hold the letter closed inside the envelope. The simple fact of the matter is you can use wax stamps on any envelope to anyone and it will always add a little something special to the letter.

 

The Story behind Wax Seal Stamps

They have been used since the dark ages by people to seal letters and it acted as a notary seal in many cases. It made the document “official” if it had the marking of the sealer on it or their initials. Most often it was made by pressing something hard into wax or some other pliable substance that you could stick to the paper or other stuff such as clay.

The same process is still used today though it does not have to be just your family crest or your initials. It was at one time used primarily by royalty, but it is now available for anyone to use if they want to make a personal statement.
