Sincerely,

How do I know if your price is good?

I am thinking about buying a character screen from you with my name on it in Chinese. But I don't know if you have a good price. I can't find any place to compare the price cause nobody else has Chinese name screens. I guess $40 sounds OK but I dunno if the double price for the master is worth it. Jay

Cheap japanese kanji wall scrolls for sale now?

About a year ago I emailed you wanting a special japanese kanji wall scroll. But you told me that you could fake it with a chinese calligrapher or it would cost $200 from a real japanese. Now I looked at your web site and you are doing it for under $100. I am totally confused. What's going on?

Hi Gary, I just recently had an unfortunate experience where I received a tattoo which I had been intending on receiving with the symbol for Kaizen on it. Unfortunately, they tattooed it upside-down. Do you know whether the symbols have any special meaning when upside-down. Thanks, Peter
