Thanks for the last letter of marque. It was a hit! I’d like to do two more. Do you still have the olde paper to do them?
Thanks, Jason


Dear Captain Conch, Just  received my copy of the Letter of Marque for the Prince of Nuefechatel. It looks Great!! The red seals make it look authentic  and it really looks 206 years old. Thanks for adding “Builder Noah Brown” to the letter.  That makes this letter an instant historic family treasure. Thanks for your help with this custom document and want to say how much I love the document.

You do Awesome work. Thank you very kindly.

I teach without using textbooks or even chairs and desks. Most of what I do is hands on history and in costume as much as possible. It’s people like you that make my job easier to pull off… and more interesting for me and the students alike. Thank you also for the tokens. I have some very happy kids, thanks to you.

I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Keep up the good work.

Received the Sir Walter Raleigh’s Letter of Reprisal. It was absolutely awesome and a master piece. Really pleased and much love on the details of the work so much. The paper looks like an historical piece as well. Not regrets and definitely will make my second order soon. Thank you so much.Regards,Paul Henry
I wanted to write a quick thank you, and let you know that I’ve been referring to your website in putting together a pirate-centered lesson plan for my 5th graders!

an_gift42When I got my order for “Pirate Hanged” I was so impressed, I decided to get all my friends different docs this Christmas. These handsomely framed letters are instant conversation starters at parties and the option to personalize makes them truly one-of-a-kind gifts. Another Ed Hardy shirt or Keep Calm poster? YAAAAWN!And when young kids ask what a “Letter of Reprisal” is, the answer will no doubt lead to another question, and then another, helping launch the young imagination into a lifetime of exploring history! It’s one thing to read about pirates, it’s another to see a relic from the Age of Sail, the Age of wooden ships and iron men in all its romance and grit!Shawn

Thank you for having such a useful resource available. A young member of our library and I came across your pirate documents web site while we were searching for resources for her to learn more about Pirates, a subject that she is currently very interested in. Our books on the subject aren’t enough to feed her interest so together we’ve been looking online. Your web site’s page has wonderful pirate resources and I know that she’s going to get a lot out of the page.

marriage license 1800 gr 550wI ordered a marriage license and it came today. It was EVERYTHING I had hoped for and more. I got it quickly, it was packaged nicely. I was worried that the frame would be cheap. It was NOT cheap. The frame, the paper, the printing, everything look wonderful. Its a great package. I’d suggest using them anytime. I’d have written this review with or without the offer of the jolly roger flag. BUT, you can send it to me anyway.

henry morgan gr 550wAhoy Captain,
Very nice document. So many reproduction documents are simply mass printed on ersatz parchment. The individual craftsmanship from the aging to the seals really makes a difference. I saw a photo of one of your reproduction Morgan Letters of Marque on page 121 of The Illustrated Pirate Diaries edited by Terry Breverton and wanted one for my collection. Glad I found your website. Cheers,Jim

Just got home from vacation and found the package; its beautiful; I’ll be giving it to my wife next month for our 23rd wedding anniversary…the paper is awesome.I’ll be back to order one of the old Virginia indentured servant certificates. Thanks again…..

I recently got Captain John Phillip’s Articles for the crew of the Revenge, back from the framers. The document is a wonderful piece of art! Very well done! I’d almost believe it had washed up in a bottle. It’s well aged and yet preserved! Nice touch with the wax insignia and seal!Thank You for doing such cool stuff!!I’ve been doing genealogy for years and traced my heritage back to Virginia in the 1700’s One great great…..grandfather was John Rose Archer. Served on the Queen Anne’s Revenge with Blackbeard. Tried as a Pirate, found guilty and hanged.Then he was buried in the marsh beneath the low water mark!Great Grandpa was a Phillips. When I started looking into my anancestryn 1979 my great grandmother told me “You stop that right now young lady! There’s NOTHING good to be found by stirring that pot” (yeah, THAT worked like gasoline on a match) Turns out our Phillips line goes back to Virginia 1700 as well.Phillips married Archer in Virginia somewhere down the road to add to the confusion.Could these be the Articles of another Pirate Grandfather? Who knows? They’re going to be a gift to my brother…a current Captain Phillips!Brandy

blackbeard raids charleston fr 326wAhoy Maties!
I am very pleased with the quality and presentation of the Pirate documents. I have purchase “About Blackbeard Raids Charleston 1718” and just recently purchased “About Henry Morgan’s Letter of Marque”. Both came in perfect condition. There is nothing like these document on-line or in stores. The hand-made paper, seal and notary looks very authentic. The smallest details that I really appreciate the most is using the same frames so if you purchase one 3 years ago and one today, they look like they were purchased at the same time. I have a great passion for the pirate life and these articles just enhanced my collection. I highly recommend buying these documents to all land lover and scallywags alike.Thanks for making a great product, capt’n.Chris Watson

pirate diaries 350wThe document arrived this morning. It is amazing. The editor that works here would love to be able to use this document in a book that we are preparing on Pirate Diaries. It’s all about the life and times of a pirate in the 17th century written by Terry Breverton who has written books before on the subject. This book will be very illustrated though. Would that be possible? We would of course acknowledge your site as the owner of the document even though it is a replica.

jeff madl 200wAhoy mate!
Are ye still attempting to commit pyracy without proper writ papers?
Is yer crew still brawlin cuz ye still hav’t writ a proper article of conduct?
Are ye still a rogue without proper letter of marque?
Or perhaps’n ye have sank a pyrate ship or Man O War and wish’t ye can inform the town of yer doin’s?
Then ye be need’n to git yer self to Pirate Documents and git yer papers writ by the only Official Forger on the seven seas worth spendin yer booty on. The prices be right an won’t git plundered at, ye may even leave with a shilling and sixpence fer a tankard o ale when yer done!
So what ye be waitin fer? Heave ahead and get yer forged papers now else Captain Mad L, that’s me, will turn this ship about and open fire sendin ye to the depths of Davey Jones’ locker I will!Captain Jeffery MadL

Thank you.

The wedding document was excellent and will take pride of place on our wall once it has been framed. We really like the skull sealing wax as a finishing touch. Thank you once again for your speed of return. Good luck with unique business.
