Hello everyone! Have you ever imagined about fantasy worlds and imaginary things? Our new products are about such fantasy worlds by Kyupodo, who specializes in letterpress printing. Letterpress printing has a subtle unevenness to the printed text, giving it a different feel from today's printed materials.
Since they are Japanese products, and everything is written in Japanese, we will introduce those products while translating them into English. Please enjoy checking them out, and find your favorite products.

Title: Introduction to Fantasy Collecting
- How to make a fantasy specimen
We all have fantasized about things that could never happen in reality, such as "Wouldn't it be fun if there was an elephant with wings?" or "Wouldn't it be bright if a light bulb bloomed?" In other words, everyone has "fantasized" at least once in their life. Strangely enough, however, these thoughts tend to be forgotten at a moment's notice. Why is this? In fact, recent research has revealed that fantasies can be triggered by sudden events. Once out of a person's head, fantasies float in the air for a certain period of time. Of course, ordinary people cannot see them, but it's the "fantasy collectors" who discover and collect them, and it's the job of the fantasy specimen room to give special treatment to the fantasies and make them into visible specimens. The following is a brief summary of their work.
Only the fantasy collectors can see the fantasy balls!
1. In a State of Daydreaming
The state of being in a fantasy. Fantasy is in your head.
2. Being Called by Someone etc.
Sudden event causes the fantasy to break out of your mind.
3. Chatting with Someone
The fantasy is rapidly leaving the mind because the person is engrossed in something else.
A state of forgetting what you were thinking about.
The fantasy that has escaped is floating, so a special net is used to capture it. Since the fantasy ball is invisible, it looks like an insect collector from the side.
Transfer the captured fantasies to a portable storage container. Never touch them with bare hands.
7. Fantasy Developing Solution
Transfer the fantasies from the storage container to the developing container and pour "fantasy developing solution" on them.
8. Fantasy Fixing Solution
When the image of the fantasy becomes clear, add an appropriate amount of "fantasy fixing solution". Do not touch the specimen with bare hands. Allow sufficient time for the specimen to settle before transferring it to a specimen jar or other container for display. Do not touch with bare hands.
