Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Question: Which kind of character do you use in your carving?
Answer: Basically, I use seal script fonts. That font was invented in the Qin Dynasty of China more than 2000 years ago, which is quite different from the modern simplified Chinese characters in form.
I can also engrave other fonts, but it will be limited by the material and size of the seal, please contact me in advance.

Custom and personalized orders

Question: Can you engrave English letters, Japanese Kanji or other language symbols? and Could you carve my personal signature or a picture?
Answer: Generally speaking, no problem. I suggest you contact me in advance and communicate everything well. Because for some seals, the material is relatively rough and not suitable for fine carving. In addition, complex carving will take more time, I have to charge you some additional fees appropriately.

Custom and personalized orders

Question: How do you translate my name into Chinese characters?
Answer: Actually, the Chinese translation of your name already exists, so I don't need to translate it specially anymore. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Xinhua News Agency and Foreign Research Agency of China have completed the translation of names and place names of various countries. Most of the translated names are transliterated. According to their pronunciation syllables, select appropriate Chinese characters.

Custom and personalized orders

Question: If I don't want an official translation name, can you provide me with a suitable Chinese name?
Answer: If you want a personalized translation, please tell me some basic information about you, such as occupation, personality, hobbies, etc. So I can combine these with the pronunciation of your name to provide you with a suitable name, trying to balance the original pronunciation of your name, personal information and the meaning of the translated name. The service is free.

Custom and personalized orders

Question: When I print my name on paper, are the characters white or red?
Answer: Generally speaking, if the material permits, I will engrave your name in red. In terms of technical terms, this is Yang Wen, meaning that the characters are prominent, the red ones are on the white background. Sometimes there are stones or characters that are not suitable for red fonts. I will carve them into white fonts. Everyone has their own preferences. If you have special requirements in this respect, please let me know in advance. For me, they are the same. It is worth mentioning that in the Han Dynasty, most of the Chinese seals were in white fonts.

Custom and personalized orders

Question: Can you engrave my English name (or other language letters, characters, personal portraits, logo) on the same seal as my Chinese name?
Answer: Yes, but it's important to note that this is limited by the complexity of your name and the size of your seal. I suggest you contact me in advance. On the other hand, in this case, I may need to charge you some extra handicraft fees.
