Daiso Japan – Hello Kitty Stamp Cap
For the Hello Kitty fans, this is the Hello Kitty Stamp Cap, a silicone Inkan holder in the shape of a very pink Hello Kitty.
Inkans, AKA Hankos are personal or business stamps (AKA seals) used in Japan in place of signatures. Trivia: Inkan and Hanko are often used interchangeably, however is a difference between the two terms. A Hanko refers to the physical stamp/seal, whereas an Inkan is the stamp that is left on the paper.
The Hello Kitty Stamp Cap fits a Shachihata Name 9 stamp (a common brand of self inking hanko with a 9.5 mm diameter stamp face. Images of a Shachihata Name 9 stamp is included in the gallery) and also attaches to the cap so it won’t get lost any more.
And there’s more. To prevent the stamp from being misplaced, there is a small loop above Hello Kitty’s head to feed a chain or neckstrap through. Double protection for 100 yen!
The Hello Kitty Stamp Cap is a licensed product from Sanrio (Sanrio seal on the back packaging).
