Samples of Chinese Calligraphy Wall Scrolls

See also: How we make traditional wall scrolls.

The samples below are rather random (there's not really a way to put them in any order).
We can't possibly show every color and calligraphy combination since there are more than 25 million different variations available on our website.

All combinations, styles, and colors below can be ordered when using the services of our master calligrapher.
However, our standard calligraphy offers much fewer custom options at a very economical price (only a few of the selections below are available via the standard level).

Please note that this page was constructed recently during a late-night session. I probably need to review and edit it. Some information or specifications might be in error.

Special Projects

We cannot automate everything about custom calligraphy. So we often take special requests via email.

Some examples include the long song lyric wall scroll to the left. It was written horizontally from left to right, but on a vertical scroll (as per the customer's request).

We often handle requests for either "love" or "double happiness" with the couple's names written in smaller Chinese characters either below or as an inscription on the left side of the large character. Below is one example of "love" with names written below.

Some customers might want a special character style. One example is the specially-requested "bold kaishu" below.
