Japan Railway x Kumpel Postcard

$2.90 Sale price

This is a Tokyo Station x Kumpel collaboration letter-press postcard.  Tokyo station is the main intercity rail terminal in Tokyo (more info about Tokyo station HERE), and this station is a must-visit place if you come to Tokyo.  What makes this postcard unique is that it is produced with the same material by using the same technique to produce a 硬券 (kouken), a old train ticket printed on a thick paper.

Kumpel is a quite new stationery brand established in 2017 by Yamaguchi Securities Printing Inc established in 1921 as a printing company to print tickets.  They have been printing tickets for many train and bus companies such as Japan Railway Company and Tokyo Metro, but due to the degitalization of train tickets from paper tickets to pre-paid IC card, needs for paper tickets decreasing.  Therefore, they decided to challenge themselves in a new industry which is stationery.

* Size: 10cm x 14.8cm (3.9"x5.8")
