Angpow Money Packet Printing for Chinese New Year

During the Chinese New Year, people give out money in red pockets called Angpow or Hong Pow (红包). The red packets has many names and tune. Our Cantonese and Mandarin speaking friends called it Hong Pow and our Hokkien friends or even Malay friends will call it Angpoa or Angpow. Some modern and younger generations people will call it red packet.  They are all referring to the same products.

Celebrate the Chinese New Year by sending your friends and family money in Chinese Red Money Pockets is a tradition for Chinese. The red envelope tradition symbolizes good fortune, joy, and happiness for the upcoming year.  This red envelope or angpao contains money is an essential part of the celebration.

Money was given to children as a way of wishing them luck and success. The red envelope has also been used as a sign of respect for elders and/or to display love and care for family members.

The angpow is filled with ya sui qian(压岁钱), which literally means "money to anchor the year," but can also be understood as "lucky money".  

Here we would like to share with you the details of the finishing.
