Frequently Asked Questions


  1. Why do you not accept applications outside the Tombow USA subsidiary?
    • We do not accept applications outside the Tombow USA subsidiary because Tombow USA, also known as American Tombow, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan. Tombow USA handles the distribution of Tombow office and art products in the United States and Canada. Unfortunately, applications and collaborations outside our subsidiary territory are strictly prohibited by our parent company, Tombow Pencil, with no exceptions.

      As a subsidiary, we are unable to ship to countries outside our territory. Even if we were able to accept applications from outside our territory, the United States alone covers six different time zones. Additionally, we maintain all documentation and communicate constantly with our team in English.

      We understand the disappointment this may cause and genuinely appreciate your interest in the 2025 Tombow Creator Crew.
