The greater part of all stamps used in Europe and many other parts in the world are self-inking stamps. This modern kind of stamp is equipped with an integrated pad which is automatically provided with ink with every stamping process. COLOP is one of the worldwide leading producer of self-inkers and these products are also the most important ones for COLOP.

Several years ago COLOP has introduced another type of stamp called the Flash stamp. The Flash stamp has a pre-inked text plate and, as the name suggests, is produced by using flash technology. This range is known as the EOS-Line. An EOS-Line Flash stamp can be manufactured in just a few minutes, allowing customers to leave with a custom stamp in a very short space of time.
In the year 2008 COLOP was the first company in the stamp-business to introduce a line of “green” stamps in the market. 2010 another innovation could be presented – COLOP is the first global stamp brand that offers stamps with built-in antibacterial protection in cooperation with Microban®. These and a number other innovations created the unmistakable profile of COLOP within the stamp business.
COLOP “Green Stamps” are CO2 neutral. Unavoidable CO2 emissions are compensated by means of investment into climate protection projects (GOLD STANDARD Projects), based on the system boundary “cradle to gate”.
