Corporate seals / presses

When documents are required to be given under the Common Seal of a local authority, company or other corporate body, the familiar sealing clause should properly be accompanied by a worthy impression of the seal - the hallmark of office from which it emanates. Individual quotes will gladly be supplied on request.

Seal engraving has been the art of expert craftsmen for many years; even in modern times there is a continual demand for this service, whether it be for simple wording-only seals or those with full armorial bearings, badges or logos.

Assistance is readily given in relation to the type and design of seal and press most suitable for the purpose for which they are required. All presses are available with Centenary finish.

Dies and counterparts can also sometimes be fitted to existing presses when, for example, reorganisation has led to a change of name or slight alteration to design.

You will find details below of our new and improved range of Corporate Seals and Presses. If you cannot find the information you require, please either view the FAQs, call 01322 621 100, email sales@shaws.co.uk or use the enquiry form on our contact page.
