How to Replace Trodat Replacement Ink Pads

How to Replace Trodat Replacement Ink Pads in your Trodat Printy Self Inking Stamp

1. Place the Trodat Self Inking Stamp on a sheet of paper that's on a flat surface. Make sure to have the stamp in the upright position. Position the stamp so the front of the stamp (with the Trodat logo) is facing away from you.

2. Locate the side of the installed ink-pad on the bottom stamp housing, just below the seam of the top housing section. This will appear as a thin rectangular plastic insert.

3. Press the top section of the stamp down about 1/8 inch, until the bottom seam of the top housing as slightly above the top seam of the ink pad, and depress the buttons located on both sides of the top housing. Depressing the buttons will lock the top housing in place and allow the ink-pad to be removed in the next step.

4. Turn the stamp around so the Trodat logo is facing you. Depress the button just below the logo. This will push the ink-pad slightly out of the housing on the opposite side of the stamp.

5. Grasp the edge of the ink pad with your fingers and simply pull it out of the stamp.

6. Unwrap the new SWOP-Pad ink pad. Insert it fully into the pad chamber with the inked side facing up.

7. Depress the top of the stamp to unlock the side buttons. This will lock the ink-pad in place, and allow the stamp to function normally.

8. Print a few test imprints on a piece of paper by pressing the top of the stamp. The test imprints will serve to re-ink the internal stamp die and prime the new pad. When all areas of the imprint are readable and show even ink coverage, the stamp is ready to use.

Other helpful tips:

Keep new SWOP-Pads wrapped in the original packaging until installation to prevent possible ink drying or ink transfer to other items while in storage.

Use light, even pressure when making stamp imprints for best results.

Store stamps in a upright position while not in use to prevent possible ink migration on the ink pad. Ink migration may cause uneven imprints.

Avoid touching the top of the ink pad. Although Trodat SWOP-Pad ink is non-toxic, it may require several washings to remove ink from skin, and may be difficult to remove from clothing and surfaces.

Always stamp on a clean, dry surface to prevent possible contamination of the ink pad and stamp die.

Store stamps and ink-pads in normal environmental conditions. Very hot or cold temperatures, or very high or low humidity, may affect ink flow and cause uneven imprints.

Colop Green Line Environmentally Friendly Line of Self Inking Stamps are a Hit with Businesses

Consumer demand for environmentally friendly and affordable marking products has increased dramatically and online retailer PromoteSource is pleased to continue to offer The Colop Green Line family of self inking stamps and accessories to its popular website,

The Colop Green Line is a unique line of stamps where the products and packaging are made from sustaining and recycled materials. Colop has been optimizing its production process for many years, creating products which cause as little damage to the environment as possible. With the Green Line, Colop goes a step further.

The Green Line products are made predominantly from recycled materials where a minimum of between 60% and 80 % recycled plastic is used. Colop buys in these materials and then re-uses them. The carton packaging is made from 100% uncolored recycled cardboard. The material is not bleached. The print is just partly bleached.

“Without a doubt, the consumer is demanding green products in their home and their workplace. With this trend continuing and more and more businesses implementing green plans, we felt we needed to respond to our customer's requests with a line of marking products that were truly green,” explains one of its partners, Michael Myers. "We've been offering the Green Line to our customers for about 18 months now and the response has been fantastic. Green and quality now go hand in hand."

Founded in 1980, Colop has become one of the largest players and innovators in the field of stamps. They are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Issues such as "climate change" and "sustainable protection of the environment" were included in the COLOP "mission" already several years ago and developed into a comprehensive and sustainable environmental concept.

“Colop is the real deal when it comes to a company who's been green before it became a worldwide trend. We're very excited about the future of the Green Line,” adds Myers.

PromoteSource provides a high quality, one stop shopping for consumers and businesses alike. Complementing its wide selection of marking products is its advertising specialties and printing business. Its customer service is unparalleled and “shopper safe” technology on its websites is key to their business. “We have strived to offer our customers a safe and easy online shopping experience, and yes, we still answer our phone. While others have come and gone, we're still here, so we must be doing something right,” explains another partner, Ed Eckhardt.

Shipping delays, false promises, they all sound too familiar when doing business on the internet. We won't let you down. PromoteSource has thrived on promising and delivering on time. There are no surprises. If you are frustrated with a low quote, only to find out later about added on setup charges, ink charges, or freight charges, then you have come to the right place.

When we quote your project, you will know up front any and all costs, period. The printing industry knows how to produce your job, they just don't know how to price it in a manner that is not confusing to the buyer. Most printing companies love to nickel and dime you with all of these extra charges. We eliminate that.

How do we give you such low prices?

It starts with our experience. We have been involved in the printing and promotional product industry for approximately twenty years and are experts in the field. The traditional printing company with a full commissioned, outside sales force requires extra overhead. We have no outside, full commissioned, sales force cold calling on you. If they get your order, you can bet you are paying full retail price. Instead, we have learned how to give you the same quality product for much less. Thousands of businesses ranging in size from home based businesses to America's largest corporations have turned to us to benefit from the savings. We provide excellent service, timely quotes, and respond to your phone calls or emails promptly. We do not bother you in person with bulky, outdated catalogs. If you do want a catalog that you can thumb through at your leisure, be our guest. Click here.
