Printing Today – Please enjoy our new exhibit

We have redesigned our General Exhibition.
In particular, we have changed the last exhibit near the exit.
This exhibit presents some of the 21st century's latest printing technologies.

There are three main focal points.
The first is "offset" and "gravure" printing technologies.
These two technologies drastically improved modes of expression for the printing of illustrations and images. Please have a look at the differences between them.

The second item is a "micro book." This is an extremely small printed book that has been produced by Toppan Printing's technicians

The third focal point is "Special Printing Techniques."
Through innovations in inks and paper, special printing techniques make it possible to experience printed works in a variety of ways.
Here you will find surfaces that shine and sparkle, textures that are bumpy, and even works featuring fragrances. Please enjoy the exhibits.
