In the past, family crests were engraved into a stamp for use on wax seals. These could be used as a means of signing official documents or sealing them.
By pressing the seal into hot wax and allowing the wax to cool and harden, the family crest was impressed into the wax seal. This way the recipient could easily distinguish who sent a letter or signed a document.
