Seals hold significance in my culture, they can be used in lieu of signatures — a mark of applied individualism and validation. As a wedding present for my cousin in Taiwan, I decided to design a set of seal stamps. I wanted to gift the couple with something that was timeless and familiar, yet desirable.
The seals are CNC milled out of a single block of aluminum, making it a unibody design. Each seal is laser engraved to ensure clarity. The subtle differences in surface finish treatments are chosen with functionality in mind. Hand-polished surfaces invite you to hold it, while sandblasted surfaces take the ink generously. The flat surface plays multiple roles — it helps the user with alignment, prevents it from rolling, and acts as a prominent display of “lucky Chinese red”.
