Yupo Synthetic Paper
Yupo Synthetic Paper was developed by Yupo Corporation Japan more than forty years ago. The founders wanted to create a synthetic paper that was waterproof, recyclable, and chemical-resistant. They soon realized that this new kind of paper would have limitless applications in the art world, and also with design and packaging of products. The US branch of Yupo was founded in 1996 and its state-of-the-art facility is located in Chesapeake, VA. Currently Yupo is the largest synthetic paper manufacturer in the Western Hemisphere, supplying people in the US, South America and beyond with their quality papers.
