On hols in Hainan - need personalised thank you scroll asap

Post by Bilbobaggins » Jan 14, 2016 7:36 am

Hi

I am on holiday in Sanya Hainan with the enormous help of friends. Am looking for a personalised wall scroll for them to thank them for all their invaluable assistance as we speak virtually no Mandarin - could you do this and get it to our hotel by Tuesday next please?
Sorry know this is a tall order also sanya internet very on and off - so probably totally out of the question but thought I would ask anyway
Hope you can help

By next Tuesday would be impossible.

Just the air mail delivery from Beijing would take 2 weeks.

We usually take 1-2 weeks to have the artwork created by hand, and then build the wall scroll by hand. Then add up to a week for the weekly trip to the international post office (with Beijing traffic, it takes 6+ hours round trip, plus time to do postal paperwork). That's why our standard service is listed as 4-5 weeks.

Let me know if you want me to still work on something for you.

-Gary.
