Custom Japanese Calligraphy Art - Working with the Finest MaterialsWhen we receive your Custom Japanese Calligraphy Art order, Master Takase will create the first sample set focusing on the translation and showing different fonts and layouts. This way you have original samples to look at as we discuss the translation and begin to think about the font and the layout.

We welcome questions and will provide you with as much information as you need to be completely comfortable with the translation. And we do have native English and Japanese translators which are a must for accurate translations.

And based on your feedback we create another sample set and we continue in this fashion until your Custom Japanese Calligraphy Art is exactly the way you want it. This normally takes two or three sets to get just right. The whole process is meant to be informative and fun.

Once you approve of the final design, Master Takase will create the final art to match the design as closely as possible. All art is completed within 1-3 business days and is shipped from Master Takase’s studio in the beautiful state of Washington. USPS Express delivery is also available.

About Our Special Paper: We use natural (not bleached) hand-made Japanese paper (washi) made of kozo and mitsumata that is sized just right to properly take the ink. We have used this papermaker from Kyushu, Japan for more than a decade now and the quality is always excellent.

This is a thicker paper and so is perfectly suited to Western-style framing. No special treatment of the paper is needed for framing. In fact, we recommend ordering your art unframed and having it framed locally.
