    Stunning!

    This is a beautiful execution. Simple symbols, clean lines, clear map, with very well done real-worldification (for lack of a better word...)

    I couldn't do a "wax seal", however, foil perhaps, its definitely worth some thought

    If you can emboss an image, you could just print the seal in red, and then emboss right on the seal to make it raised.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Or...if you really wanted to be fancy, get the seal made via rapid prototyping and use real wax!

    Gee whiz- all these fancy solutions!

    Why not just a wax seal? Use a how wax dispenser (or melt a candle ) then impress with a signet ring (or seal stamp). If they could do it in the 1600's I'm sure it could be done now!

    (unless you are looking at a production count of 1000's...hmm maybe there is a market here for mass wax sealed items.....assembly line with a wax dispenser and pick and place robot.......might have to get out my Lego mindstorm and build a prototype )

    There's a ton of websites out there that sell sealing wax and seals...there's a few that will even make a wax seal with your own seal in it that you can then use. Its pretty easy to find. I've almost bought one numerous times...When I was in saudi arabia I had a signet ring made in sterling silver with my personal seal in it (the symbol portion of my avatar)...I put it to play-doh many many times, but it never got put to wax

    Wow, this is amazing! I really like the wood cut/ink stamp look, especially the buildings, where the ink coverage wasn't complete.
