Framing a scroll

Post by Customer » Sep 25, 2009 9:46 am

I was trying to see what a chinese scroll meaning "never give up" looks like.also how much it would be if it were completely framed by you.Do you always have to frame a hanging scrool.I know nothing about calligraphy that is why I asked.I am going through a tough medical condition and have a fight on my hands that's why I picked "Never give up"
thanks for any info you can give me and help

You can find virtually any common idea or phrase for Chinese and/or Japanese calligraphy by simply entering the phrase, or a topic word into the "Calligraphy Search" box which appears at the upper left of any of our web pages.

Here is a shortcut to your search: ... er+give+up

We also have a Never Give Up page, which has most of the same, but for whatever reason, a few different entries:

If you click the "select and customize" button on one of those phrases, and then select a calligrapher, you will be taken to a page where you can visually see the many different silk color, paper color, and mounting options that we offer. Note: more options are available from the master calligraphers than our standard calligrapher.

As for framing:
What you will want to do is order a "portrait mount" instead of a wall scroll. This will give you the artwork in a "ready-to-frame" condition. It's also $13 less than a wall scroll mount.

We don't have our own framing shop in the USA. We do a little in China at our workshop, but it's either impossible or very expensive to ship framed artwork from China.

You can find a private framer in your area, and go through the very personal process of picking out the moulding, glazing, and other details for your framing project.
