도장 Dojang

도장 Dojang is a Korean personal seal with the owner name craved on it. The use of seal had become popular in The Three Kingdoms period. Now, the seal is using for legal documents or official documents such as business transactions etc, it added also with the signature. In Korea, the personal seal is registered and should keep securely.
The material of the seal could be made from wood, jade or other materials.

The Korean seal is also made for souvenir. Some of the souvenir shop at tourist spots like Insa-dong, offering the Korean seal souvenir. Because it is used just as an souvenir, we can choose the name we want to crave on it.
It takes around 30 - 45 minutes to wait until your seal is ready to use.
