Our sizes are based on width (not length). The number of characters and other factors will determine the length.

Note that our medium-size is what our competition calls "large". Compare measurements carefully. Our medium size is the most common wall scroll width in China, so it seems more honest to call this "medium".

Add $17 to any of these for the large size, add $35 for the jumbo size, or subtract $2 for the small size.

Portrait mounting (suitable for framing) is available for $15 less.

We offer a lot of mounting options and sizes for our custom calligraphy artwork. Most customers choose our medium-sized vertical wall scroll. It's not too big, easy-to-hang, and fits most budgets.

Please note that our Chinese economy calligrapher, Li Dan-Qing does not write certain Japanese characters (Hiragana), does not write more than 20-character pieces, and does not do large or jumbo-sized work. In some cases, you'll have to go with a master calligrapher - but the quality difference is worth it.

Vertical Portrait Sizes

Pricing may seem confusing when a large-size portrait is only $2 extra. But in that case, it's $17 extra for the large size, but $15 less than wall scroll mounting. So the net is $2 more than a medium-sized wall scroll.

Horizontal Portrait Sizes

Did you know?   In ancient/traditional order, Chinese and Japanese is written from right-to-left (opposite of English) so this is the order used in the traditional art of calligraphy.
In modern times, you will find that Chinese and Japanese have been influenced by western languages, and thus written left-to-right on billboards and in magazines, but not calligraphy.

Horizontal Wall Scroll Sizes

Horizontal wall scrolls are a little harder to deal with. Two nails or hooks must be placed in your wall at just the right spacing. If the nails are too close together the scroll will droop. If too far apart, you either can't hang it, or might tear the scroll.
We recommend horizontal wall scrolls only for customers with the patience to properly handle them.
