Rubber Stamp & Engraving Co (RS&E) is the South African subsidiary of Trodat GmbH, the world leader in self-inking stamps. We are 25% owned by our PDI staff and are a BEE level 2 contributor. With a history of trading spanning back to 1936, we have evolved alongside the development of the marking industry in South Africa, combining traditional expertise with the latest technology.
Our leading position of the Sub-Saharan-African market led to the sale of RS&E to Trodat GmbH in 2008. Founded in Austria in 1912, Trodat is the world’s largest manufacturer of self-inking stamps, marking products and laser engraving machines. The company has been ISO 9001 certified since 1995 and ISO 14001 certified since 2008.
We pride ourselves on the product knowledge that our long servicing staff members have acquired. Many of our staff have been with the company for more than 20 years. This has given us expertise in all aspects of the marking industry including inks and stamping accessories. This includes the supply of specialist security inks.
As a Trodat foreign subsidiary, we supply the complete range of self-inking stamps, from the Trodat Professional Stamps for office use to the Trodat Printy for home use. A full range of Rubber Stamp Making Equipment and consumables is also available.
In addition to this, we are the distributor of Trotec laser engraving equipment for laser engraving, laser marking and laser cutting for Southern Africa. This equipment offers a complete solution, from laser engraving to laser marking and laser cutting, all executed with high performance and computer controlled production. Our highly trained sales and technical team is able to provide extensive guidance on which laser is best suited to the needs of your business.
Our knowledge in business stamping has led to us also becoming a premier distributer of scrapbooking and stamping supplies to the craft market. This initially began with ink pads, embossing powders and heat tools, but has since expanded to the point of us creating our own separate division for our art range. We supply leading brands to the stationary and craft market through our showrooms in Johannesburg and Cape Town, and have recently launched an online store to supply our growing customer base at all times.
We support Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) and are BBBEE Level Two certified.
Rubber Stamp & Engraving is situated at 3 Appel Road, Kramerville, Sandton Johannesburg in premises that include a factory, showroom and training facilities.
