We've compiled answers to frequently asked questions for you in this area.
How does a self-inking stamp work?

The ink cartridge is already integrated into self-inking stamps. It dispenses ink to the text plate during each stamping procedure. These stamps are therefore especially practical and clean in application.

Trodat offers a climate-neutral stamp. What does that mean?

A product is climate neutral if it doesn't change the atmosphere's CO2 balance either by not causing emissions itself or by neutralising the product's CO2 footprint through compensating measures in environmental protection. 

With the Original Printy 4.0, all avoidable emissions were first eliminated. The remainder were compensated for by Trodat's investing in Gold Standard climate-protection projects recommended by the WWF®. You can find more about the stamp under Printy 4.0.

How do I replace my stamp's ink cartridge?

That depends on the stamp. Depending on model, replacement ink cartridges can be removed by pressing or pulling. You can find exact instructions with images for all of the various stamp models under the Tips for use menu item.

How do I set the text plate for my Typomatic D-I-Y stamp correctly?

First bring the stamp into the locked position. Then position the individual type slugs (letters) on the plate with the aid of tweezers. Please take care that you set the tests mirror imaged, meaning right to left.
