Delivery time

Post by sunmtn » Jun 28, 2012 6:55 pm

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.

Barring any unforeseen events, I'll rush this for you at no extra cost, and make sure it's there in time. This is your 12th order, so I think rush service on calligraphy is always free for you from now on.

If I ever had a "Calligraphy of the Month Club", just you and maybe ten others would join the club.

By the way, thanks for your speculative "calligraphy of the month club" title. Ha Ha. I love and appreciate this kind of art and in my older years, have come to appreciate hand made art more and more. After awhile, you see how few real artists there are and when you find a good one, well... it is a treasure. Computer graphic art, not so much. Big deal. Five minutes.

Gary,
It is August 2 and I do not see any notice of delivery yet. Is the scroll on the way? Thanks.

Actually, I have one here, but it did not pass my inspection, so I'm having a replacement made for you. I'm crazy about quality, so a minor paper flaw is not acceptable.

Do you want me to send this blemished one now so you have something to present? Then I can ship the good replacement when it arrives. Otherwise, the one with the paper flaw is headed for the bargain bin.

Gary,
Yes, please ship the one with the paper flaw. His birthday is the 5th!

PS, then ship the other one when you get it. I'll tell my senior student that another, better one is on the way. Thanks again.

No worries. I send the blemished one yesterday before I even heard back from you. It was kind of a no-brainer solution. It should be there tomorrow.

Gary,
Thank you for the fast scroll delivery and the replacement! I presented the scroll in front of my class. The reaction was great! I heard one person say it was beautiful the minute the recipient unrolled it. Li-Dan Qing certainly has a beautiful way with his calligraphy!
Also I got a personal record for "likes" on the photo we took for my Facebook page at Wing Tsun Arizona ( https://www.facebook.com/WingTsun.AZ1 )!
