Mihoko Seki Chromos Water-Activated Seals

In the 19th century, chromos were colorful seals that could be adhered to papers and stationery with water, like an early version of a sticker.

These whimsical chromo seals feature the designs of Japanese artist Mihoko Seki. They can be cut out and adhered to surfaces by activating the adhesive on the back with water.

The seals are embossed with a glossy outline, giving them a slightly three-dimensional effect.
