Customized Chinese Name Chops with Zodiac X007


In China, seal carving is traditionally recognized as one of the "Four Treasured Arts", along with painting, calligraphy and poetry. Currently, name chops or stamps are the constant companions of Chinese calligraphers and painters. Artists follow the custom of stamping their works with their name chops to "sign" them and as proof of authenticity. On the bottom of the seal is your or your Chinese name carved in the stone. On the top is a carving of the Chinese zodiac sign corresponding to your or your birth year. On the 4 sides of the seal are carved traditional Chinese scenes.

The seal is packaged in a nicely decorated Chinese box and comes with a dish of special red ink for printing the seal. Please note that the color and pattern of this stone can vary from seal to seal reflecting variation in the natural material used. Due to the fact that each seal is hand-carved, the animal sculpture can also differ slightly from one to another one.

Chinese name translation and chop face direction are included in the package. Please send us your or your child's Chinese name (if you have one) via fax, mail or jpg file. If you don't have a Chinese name, ChinaSprout can help you get a MEANINGFUL Chinese name for FREE, if you wish. Each chop can have maximum 3 Chinese characters. If you have more characters, we may choose different chops at additional charges. Please email us for more details.
