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 you help me with this?

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" http://www.jinjapan.org/kidsweb/cool/97-4-6/purikura.html "PhotoCloseups (Purika)" http://photojpn.org/closeups/purikura.html Try searching for purikura on Google for a few more links: ://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&q=purikura&btnG=Google+Search Hope this helps, carwfloc-ga

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 http://www.neostamp.com.hk/eorder.html is manufactured by a Japanese company called "ARCTAM". The product name is called "DEJIHAN". The website is http://www.dejihan.co.jp/ 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 is: telephone +81-3-5689-3002 fax +81-3-5689-3005 mailto: email@example.com I really hope this helps. Please let me know whether this information helps or not. mleking
