Chinatown Singapore and my personalized Chinese stamp


I have always loved sending snail mail, birthday cards and “just because” notes. One of the things I have always wanted to acquire was a unique stamp of sorts, something to give my mail a bit of bling, if you will.

Enter the Long Yan Tan International Tea Trading shop in Chinatown, Singapore.







Result? A really awesome keepsake!!


Want an envelope bearing this cool symbol/design?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll mail you a “just because” card  :)

    Hi just want to know how much you paid for the customized seal? Thank you so much!

    Just went by to Chinatown today and although i couldn’t find this exact store there are plenty of other shops who do seal/stamp engravings now:) I got mine for SGD$25 but the price ranges depending on the size. Just come out from the train station and there are a line of shops selling them and you can customise it and collect it within 10 mins max.

      Serene, the shop is located in Chinatown, but I’m sorry I don’t have the contact information, except that it is the Long Yan Tan International Tea House. Good luck!

    Wait. I just got a beautiful card from you…


    Why didn’t I see your cool stamp? Whaaaaat?

    {Maybe it hadn’t arrived yet?}

    Am working on writing back to you. So much going on, and I’m a little overwhelmed.

    I loved my “just because” card…but I’m curious if your stamp has any significant meaning (I can’t tell from the photos if it was based on a certain word/phrase).

    That is a fantastic (and practical!) keepsake from your time in Singapore! Definitely bookmarking this post so I can add Long Yan Tan to my list for my next visit!
