"Kyo Fufu Stamp"origin

Established in 1926

In the first year of the Taisho era, Yasunosuke HONOTA, the first head of the family, began trading at Nijo-dera Temple in Kyoto, and has kept the store for 100 years since the beginning of business.

At the time of its founding, it was trading as a grocery store, but after that, it took a step towards increasing demand for seals, and made commercial materials centering on seals and engaged in business as a seal of seals in the downtown area of Kyoto.


Contributing to the development of culture near Kyoto

At the time of Isamu TANI the second, he contributed to the development of the culture of Kyoto by donating tenkoku (tenkoku) to 'Yasaka-jinja Shrine' and ' Kikusui hoko of Gion Matsuri Festival. '

On the other hand, he said that he engraved a sketch of 'Metama no Matchan' (Matsunosuke II) in the rubber of his children in the neighborhood.In the Taisho period and the Taisho period, it was so popular that the first movie star, Matsunosuke ONOE, was carved from the early morning in order to bring the Hanko, which was the first movie star in Japan, to be returned to the public, while the Japanese people had not yet been popular.

This is the origin of the shop's "capital stamp".

Three Sobs


The place where the store is attached to the "Kyoto Fufu Stamp" is that the store is 'Hanko,' and this stamp is 'the stamp made by the' Hanko-ya '(the shop of the' Hanko ').This can be restated as being designed and produced based on the technique of engraving "characters" by the basic technology used per stamping.

Specifically, when considering a new stamping picture, it is not an idea from the viewpoint of drawing a picture, but rather to construct the pattern from the viewpoint of combining lines, such as kanji.This leads to a number of obsession with our store, and we will make a difference in the final finish.

02The echo of the design line

The stamp design of the store is made by obsessed with the quality of the line.Most of the more than 3000 types of stamps are designed for bookstores.

because the final product is not an illustration but a "hick" because the final product is not an illustration."Hanko" means that the line needs to be constructed on the assumption that this terminal is not "seen" in the end, but because it is "pressed (to be used)."

Therefore, in addition to the quality of design itself, as well as the quality of the design itself, we are obsessed with the point of "balanced" and "drawing with a linetype suitable for stamps" in addition to the design.

These will be directly linked to the "beauty of the line" in the finished stamp.As a result, customers receive a reward from customers saying, "Tamaru-inbo's Hanko is fine-grained with fine lines." I'd like to try it once.

03The Kodage of Extrusion

In our past history, we have received an opinion from the client that the customer is in trouble when the stamp is actually being pressed, and we have incorporated it into making things.

In particular, as a voice,
"The ink is faded, and the seal is not beautiful."
"I feel tired when I press a lot because I have a lot of hands on my hands."
It is said that the ink will be attached to the useless part (such as a rubber ceiling).
So, we have the following measures to deal with these problems.

the depth of the rubber surface

Since it is the root part of the stamp production at the store, it is not described in detail, but it is attached to the concave surface of the rubber surface. This makes it possible for you to press the stamp with ink and light power.Try it out. We believe that this concave-convex technology is the part of the "Hanko-ya" that carved thousands and some tens of thousands of seals as the "Hanko-ya".

Tsunushi Kakotoshi

When the stamping is pressed, the square part of the square is gable in the case of a square pedesker. In order to prevent this, we have cut off four-corner horns in the hand portion. It's a good point, but if you do it, you'll be able to notice that the center is quite different. *In fact, the employees are shaving their hands by hand, by the way.but not exactly the same, but slightly different in shape.

a gum cut

Don't you have any experience that when you press the stamp, you have a piece of paper that is not related to the stamp design? In order to prevent this, we have to prepare for the stamping design, which is not necessary for the purpose of stamp design, so we have to cut it. This means that only the parts that are really needed are ink, and you can press it clean.The fact is, this is a single cut of work.

support the obsession
Craftsmen's Work

We mentioned above, but in this period we still have a manual process of manual labor in the production process of "Hanko".Honestly, if you pursue efficiency only, it is possible to make a quick and large amount of time using a machine.On the other hand, however, the parts of quality and design that are lost in various aspects will be left to the point of giving up.In addition to the traditional crafts, art and art fields, and even in the field of education, I think you can understand the adverse effects of this inefficiency and efficiency of the arts.

When we are engaged in manufacturing, we will always be at a time when we will be forced to review the method of manufacturing.
At these times, we always try to get back to the original question.
"How do you get this product, and how is it being used?"
As a result of this question, we have adopted a method in which human hands are intervening in the manufacturing process and the product is hand-made.

There is no other way to understand the good of things that are made by one or all of them, but they are not.I would like to meet your expectations in order to make sure that the core technology is passed in the next era, even though the value of the analog is better than that of the time, but it is not the case that the analog of the time is in the core.
