  • The following fees will be charged for copying delivered by mail or parcel :
    Handling fee [domestic : 162 yen (150 yen excluding tax), overseas: 300 yen] and postage (at cost)
  • When copying Japanese-book binding materials and inserting slip sheets for preventing back projection, 10.8 yen (10 yen excluding tax) per sheet.
  • To calculate the total fee, after adding up all the fees excluding tax (in the case of the later date photoduplication service, handling fee is also inclusive), impose the consumption tax on the net fee above, and then round the sum down to a whole number.
    (Ex.) Photocopying (black/white) four A4 sheets and two A3 sheets as the Same-day photoduplication service:
    24 (yen) x 4 + 48 (yen) x 2 = 192 (yen)
    192 (yen) x 1.08 (consumption tax) = 207.36 (yen incl. tax) -> 207 yen
  • We do not charge consumption tax for copy products which are to be shipped overseas.
