Company Mantra

Sunmark Publishing.

Your life in your hands

A Sunmark book is physically light, yet it contains much energy from many people. Consider the author’s lifelong effort, the editor’s enthusiasm, possibly an artist’s visual contribution, the printers’ dedication, the hard work of the sales staff, the long hours from the delivery team, plus the care and attention from the bookstore workers. Then, of course, the critical participation of the reader, who we hope may be inspired by the book and carry this energy onwards in life.

A message from the President of Sunmark Publishing

Sharing our mutual ideals and passion,
so books may continue to be loved across the world

 

Nobutaka Ueki

Publisher and President, Sunmark Publishing Inc.

For over 40 years our company has published numerous, enduring bestsellers. In just the last 2 decades Sunmark has produced 6 million-sellers. We are truly thankful to the increasing number of readers with whom our ideas and ways of thinking resonate.

Books that are loved and popular throughout generations often hold global truths. At Sunmark, we constantly strive to produce such books. In other words, rather than chase after the transient mainstream, we are more concerned with making books that have their own energy, and developing that energy to its highest possible level. We believe that for books to continue to be read far and wide, they must contain a truly special and original energy.

In order to make such books, the creators must devote their full power and passion to their job. This includes Sunmark’s helpful, persistent, meticulous work ethos, dedicated to delivering the best possible finished product into the hands of the author and reader. This takes a united team of dedicated people in editing, sales, and production, who all share the same ideals. Overall, combining talents to provide authors with the intellectual stimulation, motivation, and support often needed to make great books. This is the cornerstone of Sunmark Publishing’s philosophy and the ideals we seek to fulfill daily.

We believe that the truth is always written in a straightforward manner. By rephrasing complicated concepts into simple terms. Making deeper ideas more palpable. In our own small way, Sunmark aims to provide our readers with new surprises and warm encouragement in paving the way through life.

Wherever there are people, there is also sadness, suffering, happiness, learning, and work that never seems to end. We strive to see through the eyes of our readers so we can pass on the energy and passion of people across generations and countries.

Welcome to Sunmark Publishing. We sincerely hope you enjoy our books.

Sunmark Publishing Philosophies

Giving importance to the ideas of the individual salesperson

The bookstore is where it all happens in our industry. Some information can only be acquired when salespeople head out to the bookstores where they can be closest to the readers. This also allows then to be communicating with bookstore employees as much as possible. Suggestions from bookstores are some of the most valuable insights we learn about our promotions.

Turning bestsellers into enduring bestsellers

For publishers, enduring bestsellers are invaluable. For example, 50,000 reprints of a book are comparable to the value of 10 new publications. Having said that, publishers always need to focus not only on new books, but also on books that are already in print to ensure that they continue to sell for a long time.

Character

Just as a good book has good characters, we strive to be a publishing company with good character. What is the best character or friend you would like to have in your life? A publishing company can be a friend that your readers connect with and keep a relationship with.
