Your favorite pet on a traditional Chinese stamp (chop)!
The stamp is made of NATURAL STONE and HAND-CARVED by me with your favorite pet, such as a dog or a cat.
Full package includes the carving, the stamp (chop), the gift box and the ink paste in traditional ceramic jar.
---- INFORMATION ---- Approximate Base Dimension: 1" x 1" (2.5cm X 2.5cm) Approximate Height: 2" (5cm) Material: Stone Box and Ink Paste: Included
---- INSTRUCTION ---- The picture shows the imprint with the black ink paste, but you can choose to have a different color by selecting the ink paste color when ordering.
Here is how it works: Step 1. You purchase this item on Etsy Step 2: You send me a picture via Etsy message or email Step 3: I send a sketch for you to approve Step 4: I do the hand-carving and ship the package
Note: the stamp is ready for shipment in 3-5 business days after the sketch is approved by you.
---- IMPORTANT ---- - Natural stones are used. The color of the stone used for you might be slightly different from the item photo. - It is NOT a rubber stamp and it is carved on a hard & tiny 1" X 1" base stone by hand. That's why I only do a sketch. Please do not buy it if you expect details like a laser carving. You will have a piece of art that feels better than a rubber stamp. - I add a border to the face when carving. This way, it's easier to make a imprint on paper. Just like the sample shows, I will make the border as natural as possible. If you need a solid border, please let me know.
---- ABOUT CHINESE CHOPS ---- Some information for people who don't know what Chinese chops are:
Chop carving, also named as seal carving or stamp carving, is one of the four most famous traditional arts in China. A chop was for many centuries a symbol of power: emperors used it to give orders, officials used it on official documentations, and civilians used it as a signature.
