Hi Gary,

I am an artist in San Francisco, California, and I want to know if your company is mounting artworks for people.
I'd like to have two large scrolls, 10 feet long and 13 feet long, mounted and delivered to my in San Francisco by May 1. They are drawings made with graphite on heavy paper on

Is this possible?

Many thanks,

Justin

Sorry, my workshop is located in Beijing, China. Just the transport back and forth to and from Beijing would take 4 weeks total via air mail.

When I was in Los Angeles Chinatown recently, I picked up the yellow pages and found these domestic shops:

You might want to check your own Chinatown in San Francisco to see what is available there.

But be prepared for sticker shock. I charge around $33 for a medium-sized wall scroll. They tend to charge $200.

This is mostly a factor of cost-of-living, and thus, labor cost in the USA, as well as the difficulties of transporting the needed materials to the USA from China.
