Personalised stamps – In use since the 17th century
While elaborate wax seals or signatures were used in the Middle Ages to confirm receipt of money or goods, the early 17th century saw stamps start being used in the Netherlands. They were a quick, cheap way for state officials to confirm receipt of taxes, fees or other levies. The groundbreaking Dutch invention became popular all over the world during the centuries which followed. Stamps had been used to manufacture coins long before this in Babylon, but it was in Holland that they were first used for the purposes we are familiar with today: with embossed rubber letters which are pressed onto a pad moistened with ink.
During the 20th century, stamps ended up as a defining feature of offices all over the world. Bureaucracy is also symbolised by so-called “stamp carousels”, to which multiple stamps can be connected for fast use. Today, stamps are still used in many areas: to denote received mail at offices, and to mark arrivals or departures at customs. Stamps and ink pads are also used on a daily basis in bookshops, schools and post offices.
The easy way to earmark bookings
The so-called booking stamp is the classic, enabling incoming monies or invoices to be quickly and efficiently recorded. The text is usually kept succinct, such as “booked”, “outstanding” or “received on”. Different colours are generally also used for the different booking processes. For example, tax consultants or payroll offices usually use several stamps with different coloured ink pads to cleanly distinguish the individual processes. At print24.com, you can conveniently order high-quality stamps for your office online, and configure your order on your PC.
Stamps for book collectors
For book lovers, “Ex libris” are two words which confirm ownership of a work. The literal translation of the Latin is “from the books of”. Libraries and book collectors have been displaying their ownership using this entry on the first page of books since the Renaissance. Bishops, princes, leaders and academics often also use their insignia or coats of arms for the stamp, which is frequently accompanied by their name written by hand. Be part of this unique tradition yourself, and have print24.com create your own ex libris stamp! We’ll be glad to assist you further by telephone if you have any queries about your design options.
Tip: Bookshops also commonly use stamps, e.g. to denote damaged copies. This means prices for books with slight damage or ripped pages are not bound by the book pricing system, and can be sold more cheaply.
Confirming receipt of documents
Large offices receive lots of different deliveries every day. Whether it be invoices, quotes, complaints or requests, all letters must be processed and filed away. The relevant stamp allows incoming documents to be quickly and easily marked. For example, date stamps, in which the words “received on” are swiftly imprinted on the paper, and the current date is simply added by hand.
The easy way to address envelopes
Address stamps are a very practical product – and not just for bulk mailers. They are a must for business customers, allowing lots of letters to be properly and cleanly marked with sender address in a short space of time. Thanks to the special quality of our Trodat stamps, these products are extremely long-lasting, helping you with your office work for the long term, even when used daily.
