Mark Co., Ltd.

We are a woven label maker that has developed a "sprouting" business card. 

Our company manufactures and wholesales emblems and woven labels for the side (or collar) of clothes. We offer comprehensive services that include all processes from recommendations on material and design to manufacturing and delivery. Our services have expanded to include special printing, display goods production, pamphlet and poster design, printing and production, and planning and production of novelty goods and stuffed animals. Our unique products have attracted significant attention. This includes our "sprouting" business card, which is a paper product with embedded plant seeds. We also supply products with NFC chips, which can be used for merchandise control and customer management when embedded in fiber products, and they are also washable.

[Company strength]
Our company has earned customer trust by offering various design ideas, and good quality and short delivery times (including prototypes) based on our wealth of know-how. We also try to stay in touch with the world, and offer the exact proposals and delivery conditions to match customer needs. Our relationships of trust with various manufacturing plants (paper, plastic, metals, wood, etc.) allow for stable production, while encouraging the development of innovative products. We recently commercialized many of our patented technologies, and prepared a new framework to cater to various customer needs. This will be done by developing environmentally conscious products, and new methods of product management and marketing. 

[Business description]
Our company was founded in 1988 as a secondary material manufacturer in the apparel field. We manufactured woven labels and care labels for the side (or collar) of clothes, and then started to manufacture emblems, leather patches, tags, and wrapping materials to meet customer needs. We now offer total services from recommendations on material and design to manufacturing and delivery. Our line of business has recently expanded to include special printing, display goods production, pamphlet and poster production, and planning and production of various novelty goods and stuffed animals. This allows us to meet a wide range of needs.

Paper products with embedded plant seeds: Applications includes postcards, business cards, and tags.
