Ship "Telle Est La Vie"
This French seal most likely dates from the late 1700s to the early 1800s. A ship sailes in choppy waters. The inscription, "Telle Est La Vie," means "Such is Life" and reminds us of the highs and lows of the human experience.
Each seal has an industrial grade adhesive backing. You can simply peel and stick on to your letter, card, gift or art work. Give a firm press to ensure the seal adheres strongly.
Outer Envelope or Hand Cancelling Recommended
You can use an outer envelope to protect each seal or hand cancel. If you hand cancel at the post office, your envelope will avoid electric sorting machines, which can crush and melt seals. During COVID, I recommend just using an outer evenlope anyway; so you don't need to go to the post office. See FAQs for more tips.
