In former times, people use their stamps to authenticate their signature, official records, contracts, personal documents, artworks or other legal writing. A stamp conveys approval, endorsement or acknowledgment. Often, it is a sign of power; Chinese Emperors used stamps to give their imperial orders. Artists authenticate their artworks with a stamp. A business uses a stamp as a professional logo. People also create their own stamps for pleasure. In fact, a Chinese stamp can be used in many different ways.
