Osco Labo is the name created to abbreviate "Oscar's Laboratory". Started in 1918 as a hanko manufacturer making the personalised stamps once required by each person for signing documents in Japan. In the past century as print was overtaken by digital, the designs have changed to accommodate changing tastes and styles. Nowadays Osco Labo, still a family owned company, makes original designs for their wood and rubber stamps to add a playful and decorative embellishment to letter writing, paper crafting projects and journaling.
