Got a picture posted of Wanko in my diary and took a picture of "Euronate" last month but haven't downloaded it yet....

LOL Well, in the US we have Kinko's, and of course there's Wang. Probably my favorite though was in Europe when Bull merged with Siemenns.

We've got Wanko here in Singapore, too. I've also seen Japanese stationery marked 'Happy Wanko'. Glorious.
