Arc Calendar Calendar

The Arc Calendar is a promotional item produced for the Yupo Corporation, the manufacturer of Yupo synthetic paper. YUPO® has water resistance and strength not found in paper but can be printed and processed like paper. This calendar expresses both the potential and the attraction of YUPO®. Made from a single sheet, it is folded and assembled into a three-dimensional visual object with foreground, middle distance, and background in arc form. This item originated out of the client’s desire to create a promotional item that is at the same time a heartfelt gift that brings the recipient joy.

Yupo Corporation

Yupo Corporation was established in May of 1969 with the aim of commercializing petrochemical-based synthetic paper. It is a joint venture financed equally by Oji Paper Company, Ltd. (Now Oji Holdings Corporation) and by Mitsubishi Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (now Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation). Our first machine at our Kashima plant (Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture) began operation in 1971, followed by a second and third in 1986 and 1990, respectively, establishing a supply network capable of providing a steady stream of products to both domestic and foreign markets. We launched full-scale production at our American plant in Chesapeake, Virginia in September, 1998, and we continue to work towards building and maintaining a stable supply structure at a global level. Following the commencement of direct European sales of the YUPO® brand in October, 2000, Oji-Yuka Synthetic Paper Co. Ltd. changed its corporate name to Yupo Corporation on January 1, 2001. With a large market share, Yupo Corporation is currently the top manufacturer of synthetic paper products worldwide.
