I personally always liked red and off white. After all they are supposed to look like old wax seals that were used to adorn official and theocratic documents. So it makes sense that they would always be thos color regardless of what materials they are really made of.

Back in'th day, I used to paint the seals themselves a variety of colours such as red, purple etc to represent different awards/oaths.

Since I play Blood Angels I tend to paint them purple. Red on red is...well, that's happening enough already in my army

EDIT: For sure the paper is always Dheneb Stone, or whatever passes for it now. Bonus points if you get a paintbrush pen and put little squiggly lines on it...extra if you do it with a real paintbrush.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

As above, I usually go with red, unless it's put on something already red. Then, I usually go with a pinkish-purple. But the paper is always the off-white.
