Chiu said that although he has purchased a computer engraver to keep up with the competition, he takes pride in having personally designed more than 30,000 characters that are stored in the computer’s database.

That said, he lamented that the government has not emphasized the value of the nation’s stamp-carving tradition and has not yet put forward any policy to assist the industry.
