Christmas Delivery Schedule

We are doing some crazy stuff this year. So that you can still get your calligraphy before Christmas, we will be hand carrying artwork to and from Beijing on an Air China Boeing 777.

Air China

Customers in the USA will have the biggest advantage, as the hand-carry return from China will be on Dec 18th with time to ship domestically via Priority Mail.
Worldwide customers can order Japanese calligraphy as late as Dec 3rd, and Chinese calligraphy as late as Dec 13th and still have a good chance of Christmas delivery.

The $10 per item rush service is required after November 25th if you want delivery by Christmas. You do not need to pay for Express Mail in addition to rush service.

Standard Shipping is Priority Mail or First Class Mail in the USA, and First Class Mail International or Air Mail for all other destinations.

These are not absolute guarantees of Christmas delivery. The earlier you order, the better. Customs delays, postal misrouting, or other issues are rare, but possible!

If you want to order custom calligraphy after the deadline, we can make a special web page for the recipient telling them about their calligraphy gift which will be arriving later. No charge for this service.
