Overview

Add a personal touch to all your creations with The Chinese Stamp Kit. Chinese chops (stamps) are an age-old method of signing one’s name, be it on an official document, a piece of art, or a note to a friend. This elegant kit includes eight beautifully carved chops of various characteristics like “Peace,” “Wisdom,” and “Harmony,” along with an ink pad to create your own chop art. The enclosed book explains the history and significance of Chinese chop art.

Includes four carved chops (eight designs), ink pad, and instruction book

Even today in China, most people will have their own unique chop. Chop means "official seal" in Hindi—European traders brought the term to China from India. Scholars have likened the chop impression to a garden—a miniature world that reflects the universal laws of positive and negative, sparse and dense, contrast and harmony. The more you look at chops, the more you will see in them.

Explore the culture behind this fascinating tradition, from emperors’ seals to modern-day business contracts and personal stamps. Discover the words and symbols chosen to compose the eight Auspicious Chops—specially designed by Zeng Xianwen—included in your pack.
