Where To Get Custom Shikishi PrintsWhere To Get Custom Shikishi PrintsAsk MFC

Howdy doo, MFC! I have a quick question. I have gotten super into adding shikishi prints to my collection. Great image quality, sturdy and easy to prop up, and don't take up too much space.

But I was wondering if there is a service where I could submit my photos and have them printed on a Shikishi board. I am asking because granny spooder would like to have some in her living room. :3

MartinTremoladaVor 2 Monaten#78728768View spoilerHide spoilerThank you so much! That's perfect. I'm guessing mini shikishis are the most commercial/popular type? I've been looking them up and most don't specify they are the "mini" format, but I'm guessing they are? If you have information on this I would greatly appreciate if you could share it with me. Thanks!! Yep, often times mini shikishi are sold in box sets so they tend to be more accessible. (That's why the holders for them are more readily available as well.) I doublechecked my collection and some of my larger shikishi are stored in my clear file holders, but they're a bit irregular sized (longer/rectangular). Usually shikishi are closer to squarish in dimension.

Here's MFC's mini shikishi entry: ENTRY #57119 Typically, they are W=120mm x H=136mm.

Sometimes you do get slightly larger "mini" shikishi like this one ITEM #959705. You can see it's classified as a mini shikishi, but it wouldn't fit in the holders I mentioned before.

Then there's all sorts of irregular sized ones like ITEM #975585 and ITEM #240756. Ichiban kuji also has shikishi prizes and those are typically the large sizes you'd see artists use for drawings + autographs. Some examples are ITEM #314399 and ITEM #459961 at 270mm.

TL;DR: If you're interested in collecting shikishi to store in a holder, just be careful of the dimensions! Just the photo of the product alone can be misleading.

RazeVor 2 Monaten#78729070View spoilerHide spoilerI've actually been wanting to try out Coade's shikishi holders and I see there are two types for mini shikishi, one for single pages and the other with double pages. I noticed the single page holders are top-loading while the double pages are side-loading. Top pages are super easy to slide in and you don't have to think about the holder's spine, but side pages I'm not sure about especially for shikishi which have no flexibility. Is there any difficulty putting in shikishi sideways, particularly when you reach near the end of the folder when you have a stack of shikishi already in the front pages? I use both types and definitely prefer the single page one even though it's smaller. There's no difficulty putting the shikishi in the 2-per-page version, and it becomes sturdier the more full it is. However, I think the holder itself is best stored flat. When its upright, the weight of the shikishis does cause the pages to lean down which causes the shikishi to slide out a bit.

If you want to store it upright, you'll need two so you can have them leaning against each other in opposite directions (one spine facing out of the shelf and the other spine facing in). Until you get the holder pretty full, it's best to also distribute some shikishi in the front and some in the back.

The spines themselves are fairly stiff (I've never had concerns about them bending), but the covers are flimsy plastic. If you've ever used Five Star wirebound notebooks, it's a similar plastic material.

There might be other companies that make them, but I haven't really looked around too much since I like Coade's products. I do have a minor complaint that the mini shikishi holder can be a bit flimsy though since it's two per page.

noctisityVor 2 Monaten#78728639I personally use storage holders from Coade:
- larger size: coade-online.sh... Edit: Sorry, misread and this is also for mini shikishi except it's one per page. I don't think they make one for larger sized shikishi anymore?
- mini shikishi (2 per page): coade-online.sh...
(Coade in general makes a lot of nice storage and protective items for merch!)
You can buy them directly from Coade (via proxy). But sometimes they're in stock on sites like AmiAmi, Suruga-ya, Rakuten, and Amazon JP.

MartinTremoladaVor 2 Monaten#78679603Your post got me interested in shikishi! Do you or anyone else know where to buy shikishi album holders? Like Trading card albums but with the shikishi measurements?

indian_summer22Vor 2 Monaten#78677980I'd contact a local copyshop. It's just a pretty picture printed on nicer cardboard. There is no reason why a regular copyshop should be unable to do it if you explain what you want.Spot on with the local copy shop suggestion. And a quick search on Amazon (www.amazon.com/...) shows availability, although you could probably cut the cost by looking at alternative vendors too. Good idea, though, and good luck!
