China has a neat product that makes stamps out of digitized
photographic negatives.  I would like to purchase this equipment. 
Their website is all in Chinese so I am unable to decipher it.  Can

I've been speaking with Ken Lun, (Neostamp / Poly Plus Technology
Limited's sales executive) and asked him if they sell the equipment.

If you want to contact him, you may write or call him:

Hi toto,

If what you're looking for is, in fact, a machine that can make stamps
out of digital images, you may be searching for an arcade machine
called "Stamp Club."  It's a spinoff of the very popular Japanese
arcade called "Print Club" that's basically composed of a digital
camera and a color printer that prints your picture onto individual
postage stamp-sized stickers.  Think of it as a photo booth with an
inkjet printer.

"Stamp Club" doesn't, to my knowledge, have the capability to scan
physical negatives, but it does have a camera to take your (and some
friends) picture and "etch" it onto a stamp which you can use to stamp
love letters, your locker, or each other on the forehead.  I've
actually used one of these machines and it's really quite fun to see
your photo in stamp form.  It costs about $4 USD for one stamp, and
takes a few minutes to etch.

These type of machines are very popular where I live, and I'm sure
you've seen some in arcades.  Here are some links with photos of said
machines and brief descriptions:

"What's Cool In Japan 1997"

"PhotoCloseups (Purika)"

Try searching for purikura on Google for a few more links:

Hope this helps,

Hi Toto,

I hope you are looking for the equiptment that produces stamps as in
rubber stamps, not stamps as in postage stamps. If this is the case,
my search result is perhaps exactly what you are looking for. The
equiptment mentioned in runix's link is manufactured by a Japanese
company called "ARCTAM". The product name is called "DEJIHAN". The
website is

I could not find other websites to this company, so it seems that
"DEJIHAN" is its major product. Unfortunately, this company does not
have a English version to its website. By all of my knowledge in the
Japanese language it seems the company's website takes orders of
people who want to order to have stamps made. The website makes
invitation to franchise businesses, but it does not seem to mention
sale of the equiptment.

However, they do have contact information and a page where you can
submit inquiry. If you go to the website, the inquiry information will
be on the bottom left of the page where it says "Mailform". Or here it

telephone +81-3-5689-3002
fax +81-3-5689-3005

I really hope this helps. Please let me know whether this information
helps or not.
