Rubber Stamp and Engraving Company (Pty) Ltd (RS&e) was first registered in November 1936, and started life in President Street, downtown Johannesburg, later moving to Fordsburg as the business grew.


In 1956 the company was appointed a Distributor for Trodat Stamps who in 1976 introduced the world’s first self-inking stamp to the market – the now famous Trodat Printy.


In 1988 the company augmented its stamp range with the introduction of Art stamps to the Craft market, and in 1998 Trodat formed a new company called Trotec to manufacture, market and sell Laser Engraving Machines. RS&e became the exclusive distributors of Trotec Lasers in 1999 into Southern Africa.


In 1998 the company moved from Fordsburg to Kramerville.


In 2002 the Art stamp range was largely replaced by our entry into the Scrapbooking industry.


In 2008 RS&e was acquired by Trodat GmbH with a minority interest being sold to our own staff, through the process moving from being a Trodat Distributor to that of a Subsidiary of the Trodat GmbH group.


In 2010 the company moved to bigger and better premises, still in Kramerville, where we remain to this day.


In 2024 an opportunity arose to move back from being a Subsidiary of Trodat to that of a Distributor again, and through this process Trodat sold its interest back to RS&e’ s senior management, the empowered staff retaining their interest in the company.


Product wise Trodat stamps remain the backbone of our company, the Printy range being much developed over the years to the present 4th generation of Printy and Professional stamps.


In a similar vein Trotec Lasers have developed from Flatbed lasers to a full suit of lasers covering CO2 and fibre laser technology in many sizes and formats as it has adapted to industry and the market.


Our Craft range has also moved with the times, not the least of which the developing of Penelope Dee range of Scrapbooking products for the local and export markets.


We see our greatest achievement as the loyalty of our customer base, many of which have been with our company for decades, and without which we would not have achieved the success that we have.


And of course, we remain ever grateful to our dedicated and loyal staff, most with 10 or more years of service who continue to fly our flag high and serve our markets in all is facets. Long may this continue.
