Chinese seal carving is an ancient art that combines calligraphy and engraving. The golden era of seal carving in Hong Kong dates back to the 1900s. Back then, most people could not read or write, and they had to stamp their signatures on official documents. They used name chops to receive wages or when picking up packages at the post office.
