The word for today is envelope. I have multiple ideas of how this could look so I think I'm going to create an icon for each and then see which I prefer the most. Below is the first one that I created. It's definitely the most simple icon, however it does get across the word perfectly.
I decided to alter the icon design so that it was even more minimal. I definitely prefer this response as it is still very obvious that it's an envelope, therefore I don't believe the seal needs to be shown for this to be a successful icon design.
I liked this icon design the most, so I added colour to see how it could work if it were used for something.
