Make Your Own Seal

There were several parts to a letter including the outer seal. The design represented the person sending the letter with symbols and colors.

What would your seal look like?

You might want to include your initials and a picture of something you like. Pick a color for your seal. Most seals were red, but some were blue or green. Black was used only by people in mourning.
