See the evolution of the Trodat Printy stamp throughout the years

This was the first self-inking stamp made of plastic that was introduced to the market.

1993 - 2nd Generation

Improvements were made after some design and function development was applied to the 1st Gen Printy

The Original Printy 4.0

Trodat's holistic approach to climate protection rests on three important pillars: Avoiding CO2, reducing CO2 and offsetting unavoidable CO2 emissions. This commitment has been reinforced by the fact that this bestseller is now climate-neutral.

Trodat 4.0 Ink Pads: A Legacy of Backwards Compatibility

Trodat's commitment to user-centric design is evident in the 4.0 ink pads' impressive backwards compatibility. These pads are meticulously crafted to be compatible with not just the 4.0 generation machines, but also their predecessors, the 2nd and 3rd generation Trodat machines. This commitment ensures a smoother transition for users and showcases Trodat's dedication to sustainability, allowing older stamp machines to remain functional and relevant.

If you happen to still possess a 1st generation Trodat machine, we tip our hats to you! Keeping a device operational for over 30 years is no small feat and speaks volumes about the robust design and durability of Trodat products. However, it's essential to note that after three decades out of production, Gen 1 machines no longer receive parts support. So, while it's an impressive accomplishment to have such a long-standing device, it's worth considering that it has reached its end of life in terms of parts and maintenance.

Whether you're using a recent model or an older generation, Trodat's focus on long-lasting value and consistent performance remains clear. The 4.0 ink pads reinforce this legacy, ensuring users enjoy consistent quality across multiple generations of machines.

Tip for Trodat Stamp Users

Good news! New generation Trodat ink pads fit older stamp models too. If your old stamp doesn't have slots for the grip tabs on our replacement pads, no worries! They'll break off easily during installation. Your stamp will work like a charm!
