In case you would like to get your masu cups branded with your own logo, then we will need to discuss the way how it will be done with you.
The points that are particularly important here are:
+ Branding size: There's a maximum area that could be branded on each type of masu cups and normally we aim to brand your logo on the cups in the biggest possible size.
Please tell us if you would like to get your logo branded in a smaller size!
+ Layout: Normally we will brand your logo centered inside the max. brandable area. Please tell us if you would like to get your logo branded using a different alignment!
+ Logo data: Finally, checking your logo is indispensable for making a precise quotation for the custom branding, so we will need you to send us the logo in a high resolution format as an e-mail attachment.

The Masu selling company is shipping masu cups to customers both in Japan and worldwide. Recently we are getting more and more orders from not just individuals, but organizations, Japanese restaurants, international companies making a business opening ceremony Japanese style by opening a barrel of sake and drinking its contents from masu cups. An excellent way of drinking Japanese sake is to do it from a freshly made masu cup. That may be the reason why Japanese people cherish a rather intimate connection with these small wooden boxes from the old times. We would like to share the best parts of traditional Japanese culture with as much people around the globe as possible.
