What is the Periodic Table of Hangul?
Periodic Table of Hangul is a chart that simplifies the way of learning Hangul, which is the Korean writing system, on one sheet of paper.
Is the Periodic Table of Hangul periodic?
No. Its layout is a design parody of the traditional Periodic Table of the Elements.
Why did you use the periodic table for the layout?
Though it does not exactly match the traditional meaning of the periodic table, I felt that the concept of chemistry elements, which are grouped and arranged in the periodic table, is similar to how Jamo (Hangul alphabet) are grouped in the Hangul writing system. Furthermore, it helps to explain how each Hangul script is written. Mimicking the layout of the traditional Periodic Table of the Elements can help to organize the simple logic of building Hangul syllables in a visually pleasing presentation.
Is the design to promote Hangul?
No. It is like any other language materials that teach a language or alphabets. It's a personal design project, so it does not promote any language or country.
Is the design/wallpaper for the public good?
No. This wallpaper is like any of my designs and services that I sell as a graphic designer.
Is the wallpaper free?
The wallpaper is free only for personal screen viewing purposes. No copies, reproductions, modifications, inclusions in any document, distributions or use as a teaching material are allowed for any reason. There are no exceptions.
If anybody would like to use the design/wallpaper for other than personal screen viewing purposes, please purchase the prints or appropriate license.
Where can I download the wallpaper?
Sorry, download period has expired.
You can see partial details of the design at shop.aboutletters.com.
Can I upload the wallpaper to my blog/website ?
Owing to the fact that many blogs/articles failed to provide correct information of the design, it caused much misunderstanding about the use of the wallpaper. Therefore, I do not allow any website to distribute/post the full size wallpaper .
Are there differences between the prints and the wallpaper?
Yes. There is more detailed information on the prints regarding numbering and descriptions. Most important, there were some errors on the wallpaper. The errors were corrected in the prints.
What size is the print?
24 in. x 16 in. (60.96 cm x 40.64 cm)

Can I return purchased prints (Return/Insureance Policy)?
This particular design is not eligible for a refund.
In case your order is lost or damaged, insured items can be refunded.
(Insurance included for 3 or more prints & domestic only)
If you are an international customer, and want to include the insurance, select the international Priority Mail Service Option. Please note that non- insured packages are not seller's responsibility for loss or damage in transit.
How long does it take to get my prints delivered?
It depends on where you are located. If you reside in the US, it will take 3-5 business days from the shipping date. For international delivery, the packages will leave the US in about a week from the shipping date. Once the packages leave the US, it all depends how your country's mail system processes the delivery. For your information, USPS does not provide tracking numbers for First-Class Mail International delivery. For neighbor countries like Canada and Mexico, it may take 1-2 weeks for delivery from the shipping date.
Is there any other place to buy the prints?
Currently my website is the only approved place for purchasing prints. If there is a designated distributor in the future, I will update the information on this page.
Who needs to purchase a license?
Whoever wants to use the design, including the wallpaper, for uses other than personal screen viewing purposes needs to purchase a license. For example, you may want to purchase a license as a local print distributor, or if you wish to include the design in any type of publication.
How much does it cost to purchase a license?
There is no set price for licensing. It depends on your publication type, purposes, and duration. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
