If you are not sure about how some of our paper and silk colors will match your decor, this is a way to get a full set. If you only want up to 5 samples, you can request those for free on our Asian Art Forum
This is not a fancy set of samples, just a bunch of swatches of various silk brocades and xuan papers that we use for our custom calligraphy wall scrolls.
Samples will be mailed to you via First Class Mail or Air Mail. This $5 fee covers all postage etc.
These gold flakes are not the first thing you notice on a calligraphy wall scroll, but they add something special to the artwork. High-quality calligraphy is often seen on this quality paper. Especially good for gifts.
While technically, all xuan paper is handmade, these papers received special treatments during the paper-making process.
These xuan papers are imprinted or etched with various gold or ink patterns. The stampings make a wonderful background enhancing the presentation without "stealing the show" from the calligraphy itself.
Note: These stamped and etched papers are NOT available for large and jumbo sized artwork!

Gary's random little things about China:
You can search long and hard, in every drugstore and sundries market in China, and you will not find underarm deodorant for sale anywhere.
After traveling all over China, I know this to be true everywhere in China except Hong Kong.
If you ask a Chinese person why there is no deodorant for sale, they will tell you plainly, "Chinese people do not smell bad".
My reply is, "Have you never been on a crowded bus in the summer?"
