yin yang koi

Post by gordon w » Jun 8, 2013 8:32 am

Can I order a custom size of the red and black yin yang koi fish, on white paper, horizontally, 30" w x 16" h?
The other option i'm considering is 3 symbols horizontally on white paper, same size.
"Love, double happiness, health"
If we wanted our names on this one where would it go?

Thanks,
gw

The koi fish option would be hard to accomplish. If I tried it, you might as well make it bigger. The special size you want would require using a full large sheet of xuan paper. Materials and shipping cost from China will make it a $100+ project.

Custom calligraphy is much easier to deal with for me (it's what I specialize in).
The only problem I see with what you wanted is the "double happiness" character. This is really just for newlyweds. It's never used in conjunction with other characters (except maybe an inscription).

Maybe you could try something like this:

Or I can do a custom word list for you (just without double happiness). Maybe "Love Health and Happiness".

Cheers,
