Like the history of stamps themselves, Shachihata has a rich and wonderful background. We started in 1925 as ink chemists and stamp pad manufacturers. The Xstamper® was born in 1964 while doing R & D on a more durable rubber marker nib. While performing numerous experiments, to our surprise the addition of salt into an experimental rubber compound resulted in the development of cellular rubber for the most durable pre-inked stamps ever made. Later, we also pioneered and developed laser manufacturing for faster and better print quality.
Where We Are Today
What started as a small stamp-making business more than 90 years ago has blossomed into a multi-million dollar a year operation that includes more than nine facilities and nearly 2,000 employees worldwide. We’re proud that our products are available in several major languages and in over 80 countries.
