zhì
shi
Best Scroll

It's a little strange as calligraphy, but 至 would be the character which means "best" or "extreme" in Chinese and Korean.

The problem is, this is seldom used alone. It's mostly used in combination with other characters to make words like "best friend", "best food", and "best love".

I do not recommend this character for a wall scroll. It's better if you find a more specific term that fits your circumstances.

Note: This can be pronounced in Japanese and has similar meaning but it is rarely if ever used in modern Japanese.

Best Love / Most Sincere Love

zhì ài
Best Love / Most Sincere Love Scroll

至愛 can mean the best love or most sincere love of your life.

This could be a romantic love such as the love you have for your spouse or a boyfriend / girlfriend.

It can also apply to the extreme love you have for your children or a parent, and maybe a really good friend.

Best / Number One

ichi ban
Best / Number One Scroll

一番 is often used to mean "best" or "the best" in Japanese.

It actually means "number one" in Japanese.

Best Friends

zhì jiāo
Best Friends Scroll

This an alternate way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most", "extreme" or "best". The second character means "making friends" or "building friendship". There's sort of a suggestion with the second character that fate caused you to intersect in life and become friends (that character can mean intersection in some context).

This can also mean "most intimate friend", "very good friend of long standing", or "closest friend".

Simply the Best

Supreme / Highest

zuì gāo

Simply the Best Scroll

最高 means the highest level, supreme, top, the most, or the best.

Depending on context, it can mean the most expensive or highest quality.

Best Friends / Buddies

qīn yǒu
shin yuu
Best Friends / Buddies Scroll

親友 is the Japanese way to say "best friend".

The first character can mean "relative" or sometimes "parents". The second character means "friend". Think about the close relationship that Japanese people have with their parents and relatives, and this starts to mean "close friends".

Some Japanese-English dictionaries also translate this as "bosom friend", "old friend", "intimate friend", "buddy", "crony" or "chum".

Note that in Chinese, this has the meaning of "relatives and friends". It's a good meaning in Chinese but it's not quite the same as "best friends".

Best Friends / Closest Friend

zhì yǒu
Best Friends / Closest Friend Scroll

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most", "extreme" or "best".
The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in China).

Can also be translated as "close friend" or "most intimate friend".

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
