Artwork Mounting Format
If in doubt, choose a vertical wall scroll.
I recommend that you choose a vertical wall scroll for most situations. Just one nail or hook in your wall, unroll it, and you are done.
Horizontal wall scrolls take special care to hang properly. The nails or hooks must be perfectly spaced on your wall (too close and the scroll droops, too far apart and you can't hang it or you tear it).
Hand scrolls are also known as "Table Scrolls" and are very unusual. These cannot be hung on a wall. They are for display laying on a table or inside a glass case only.
Artwork Size and Number of Character Columns
* Recommended number of columns for best length, balance, and value.
Measurements at wooden knobs shown above apply only to
vertical wall scrolls.
Measurements are approximate, and be reduced by as much as 1.5cm (¾") when trimmed during the mounting process.
The size options above are based on width (not length). The length will follow a "natural flow" which is determined by the number of characters, number of columns, and in some cases the style of calligraphy.

Please note that all computer monitors display colors differently. In real life, the white is pure white, and the ivory has a warm yellow hue - some would call this "antique white". Please note that the medium green can vary widely in color!
The shade and pattern of these materials varies from time to time as we receive new batches from the loom/mill.

Keep in mind that you've selected a Japanese master calligrapher. This takes a little longer because in most cases, the raw calligraphy must be shipped from Japan to our workshop in Beijing, and then to you. This is how we save you about $100 compared to typical Japanese calligraphy, but it does take longer.
I suggest you skip the rush service right now. I cannot offer a guarantee other than a promise that we will make every effort to deliver your order ASAP.
It's March 2023, and I can't believe it, but we are still overcoming a lot of COVID-19 issues. Right now, the main problem is the lack of passenger aircraft flying out of Beijing. Mail usually travels in the bellies of those aircraft. Less aircraft = backed up mail service.
Please allow for a delay of about three weeks past the timeframes shown above.
If Rush Service is late, get up to 3 times your rush fee back:
If I deliver late, just let me know and you'll get triple your rush fees back ($30) in a gift certificate (or double if you want a direct refund instead).
