Bottom Line Combining Asian tradition and modern innovation, stamps made by Good Characters™ are authentic yet highly usable. If you are looking for a daily-use, heavy-duty business stamp then this is for you. If you need to stamp 200 invitation cards in a hurry then this is definitely for you, too. Difficult to get sharp and clear impressions on today's paper, the stone chop is more for display than actual usage. If you want something that looks attractive but does not need to be practical, this one is for you.
