At Work: Plaque and Rubber Stamp Makers
Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan
Five days ago, I posted this story about the plaque and rubber stamp makers. This picture shows a couple of them at work. They don't usually take home the orders they receive, but carry them out right there and then. You could even watch them work on your order, if you're patient enough. It usually takes from about an hour to a day to complete an order, depending on what you order.
By the way, D is the licence plate for greater Bandung area. Indonesian licence plate reads something like: [an initial letter that indicates the area in which the motor vehicle is registered, for example D for Bandung] plus some digits and letter(s). License plates are also color-coded to indicate whether the vehicle is privately owned (black background with white letters and numbers), public transportation (yellow background with black letters and numbers), and public/government owned vehicles (red background with white letters and numbers).
