Re: Seal Ink

If you want to save money (the ink in the tins is the cheapest), I like Yinni 682 (note, Yinni is not the brand, though westerners think it is, yinni just means "stamp clay" or "ink mud"). You can find it on eBay for about $4-$5: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Calligraphy-Red-Ink-Paste-Chinese-Yinni-Pad-3...

Seal Ink

Gary, Do you have an ink for seals (chops) that produces a better impression than mine. I bought my ink from a supplier in California that gets their ink tins from China. However it takes a lot of 'doing' to get a good impression, repeated tries, repeated dips into the ink, etc. Then I find out that...

Weird e-mail

I received a weird e-mail saying it was a direct message from Twitter claiming to be Oriental Outpost. I absent-mindedly clicked on it and it went nowhere. I am currently running extra scans on my computer.

Re: Calligraphy for Wing Tsun terms

The first link is for the Biu-Tze that you presented. I labeled it in Hanyu-Pinyin as "Biao Zhi". The second link will help you customize and order "Chum-Kiu" which I labeled "Xun Qiao". I have to use proper Mandarin Hanyu Pinyin or English for those titles, otherwise, somebody in my little worksho...

Calligraphy for Wing Tsun terms

Hello Gary, I am thinking about getting some small scrolls or portraits done on pure white rice paper of some terms for Wing Tsun forms. Siu-Nim-Tau (means Little Idea Form) Chum-Kiu (Arm Seeking Form) Biu-Tze (Thrusting-fingers form) These terms come right out of my instructor's book "Wing Tsun Kue...

Delivery time

Gary,
On my order today for a scroll with the word "Dragon," I need it by August 5. Is that going to be a problem with normal U.S. Priority Mail that I selected? 4-5 weeks feels like I am cutting it close.

Gary,
The 12% discount coupon and code came up on my order today but i am not prepared to use it just yet. I removed the box and did not copy the code. I thought I could call it up again. silly me. That wouldn't work for the issuer! Can I get another code?

Yes. You can select square seal script for the project, and reference this image or forum post in your special instructions.

This is something I struggle with continuously. Virtually all the materials we use are handmade.

This is mostly because the pulp...
