Thank You / Xie Xie

China xiè xie
Japan shie shie
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is how to say thank you in Chinese. It is pronounced a bit like "shea shea" as in the English word for shea butter. Except you pronounce the X like "sh" but with your tongue firmly at the bottom of your mouth.

Unless you are putting this wall scroll near the exit of your store or restaurant to thank customers for coming, it is a bit of an odd selection. A gift of thanks to another person should be a more personal selection with more meaning than a simple thank you. Although common to write xie xie inside a card or letter of thanks.


Technically, this can be pronounced in Japanese but in Japan, it's still the Chinese way to say thank you. It's like an English speaker saying "gracias" (Spanish word for thank you).

Thank You / Arigato

Japan arigato
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the simple way to say thank you in Japanese. It's pronounced "Arigato."


Note: Because this is all Japanese Hiragana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Gratitude / Thanks

China gǎn xiè
Japan kan sha
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is gratitude; the feeling of being grateful or thankful. You can think of this as being a formal way of expressing thankfulness in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.


Note: Because this is all Japanese Hiragana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Thankfulness

China gǎn jī
Japan kangeki
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Thankfulness is being grateful for what we have. It is an attitude of gratitude for learning, loving and being. Appreciate the little things that happen around you and within you every day. Think positively. Thankfulness brings contentment.


Different meaning in Japanese - more like "deep emotion," "impression," "inspiration" - not recommended for a Japanese audience.


Note: Because this is all Japanese Hiragana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Respect (Japanese / Simplified version)

Can also be a sign of gratitude
China
Japan rei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

We show respect by speaking and acting with courtesy. We treat others with dignity and honor the rules of our family, school and nation. Respect yourself, and others will respect you.

This is also one of the five tenets of Confucius.

This character can also be translated as propriety, good manners, politeness, rite, worship or an expression of gratitude.

Chinese RespectPlease note that Japanese use a simplified version of the character for respect - it also happens to be the same simplification used in mainland China. Click on the character to the right if you want the Traditional Chinese version.


This is also a virtue of the Samurai Warrior
See our page with just Code of the Samurai / Bushido here


Note: Because this is all Japanese Hiragana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
