Our Story

We play with paper. We gamble on imagination.

When we were folding paper in our children daydreams we couldn’t imagine that those plays would become the meaning of our lifetime. Now we have grown up, we are shrewd and we can make our employee’s wishes come true as well by keeping on doing our thing. It is what we like, it is what we do better than anyone else.
