Need Chinese calligraphy to mount

Post by kimmchan » Jan 27, 2014 3:24 pm

Can you mount this Chinese calligraphy? 25 inch by 13 inches.
This is horizontal - are these typically with or without scrolls? How do you hang these? or just display flat?

I can mount this, no problem.

There would be two typical ways to mount:

1. A horizontal portrait (this would require that you have it professionally framed after I thicken it and add a silk border all the way around).

2. A horizontal wall scroll (this requires hanging between to carefully-spaced nails or hooks on your wall). The horizontal wall scroll will save you from the cost of framing, but does take some effort to hang properly.

A third and unusual option exists, which would be a hand scroll. This would sit on a table or in you lap for viewing. This is a very unusually mounting option, especially for a piece as short as this one would be.

Let me know if you want to pursue this. If so, I will set it up so you can customize your mounting and view different silk color choices, etc.

The price will be $32.88 for a single-color horizontal wall scroll (plus postage to and from China).

Cheers,
-Gary.

If I make it into a horizontal wall scroll, and later then make it into horizontal portrait, then can I cut off the scroll portion?

Yes, the materials are the same, so cutting off the ends of a horizontal wall scroll results in almost the exact same thing you'd get if you ordered a portrait mounting in the first place.

A sharp knife and straight-edge are required for that operation. Leave a little extra at the sides as either a silk border, or to tuck behind the mat board if you're doing western-style framing.

I want the Horizontal portrait (without scrolls). Can you arrange for me to check out?

OK, follow this link to customize your artwork. I am pre-selecting the mounting format to be a horizontal portrait for you, but you can change it to horizontal wall scroll under the format button/option:

Add it to your cart, and checkout. Shipping instructions are here:
