We thought that providing new services is necessary for us to open the flagship store in Harajuku, a town of fashions and arts.
Permanently installing UV printer “UJF-6042MkII” in the store made it possible for us to launch a store-printing service of only one original watches.

With the increasing number of requests for printing on three-dimensional objects that cannot be handled by roll-type inkjet printers, the company was faced with the problem of being unable to handle such jobs with short delivery times by outsourcing, and suffering many failures in terms of quality.
By introducing a flatbed UV printer and cutting plotters, they are now able to meet short delivery times and directly print on a variety of commercial goods, which was not possible before. This has led to an increase in new orders in the novelty field. Another advantage is that they can easily create prototypes in-house. In the future, they hope to highly promote UV printing and stay closer to their customers.

We used to outsource printing on plastic parts and metallic plates, laser cutting acrylic plates, etc. in the process of manufacturing products, which took us a lot of time and money.
It became possible to do the laser cutting and printing processes in-house, which led to a cost reduction. We could also reduce the time for prototype production, which enabled us now to make various proposals.

We were exploring possibilities of new business utilizing our print technology to compensate for the decline in orders for paper-based print which we had handled with offset printers and on-demand printers.
Utilizing the know-how of data generation and proofreading that we used to do to process orders for paper-based print, we succeeded in moving into the new business field of original goods and novelties.

Although we have outsourced the manufacturing of button badges and pasteboards to subcontractors (for offset printing and punching processes), it took a lot of cost for us to deal with work operation of a small-lot production.
Introduction of CFL-605RT and a laser printer enables us to realize reduction of manufacturing cost by a factor of 10 and a significant reduction in delivery time. Furthermore, our scale of business is expanding by introducing UJF-6042MkII and producing acrylic key holders in-house.
