Trodat 5206 vs 5212 Stamps Comparison

Let’s do a comparison between the Trodat 5206 and the 5212 professional series self-inking stamps which CNCROi.com is an official distributor and licensed rubber manufacturer of.

First, the hard stats, here are the imprint sizes of both self-inking stamps, to make this comparison even we will be engraving the same logo on both sizes using our Austrian wide-format industrial laser.

  • Trodat Professional 5212 Custom Self-Inking Stamp (70 x 116 mm or 2.8 x 4.6″)
  • Trodat Professional 5206 Custom Self-Inking Stamp (32 x 57 mm or 1 5/16 x 2 1/4″)

For both self-inking stamps, we used Trodat’s own rubber, not only have they provided us with the professional stamping mechanism but they also are responsible for our Trotec Laser coming into being, being the parent company of our CNC laser, CNCROi.com is Trodat all the way!

Our industrial laser does quick and very precise work from the rubber that will become our Trodat 5206 and 5212 stamps, with 5 nanometers of precision, there is a perfect replication of your digital black and white file onto the rubber under CNCROi.com‘s space age industry leading overhead gantry.

For an idea of a custom rubber stamp that isn’t self-inking, CNCROi.com can make them at any size so watch this video to learn more.

If you are curious as to what a round stamp looks like, check out an earlier video focused entirely on the Trodat Professional 5215 custom self-inking stamp which has a surface area of 45 mm or 1.75″ diameter.

Again, the Trodat Professional 5212 is 70 x 116 mm or 2.8 x 4.6″ while the Trodat Professional 5206  is 32 x 57 mm or 1 5/16 x 2 1/4″ by comparison so it’s roughly middle of the road.

CNCROi.com offers you the ultimate flexibility when it comes to custom rubber stamp production, whether you need one or a thousand, any size, shape or design, we can make it for you no problem with your choice of ink pad colors!

Good by smudges, letting that isn’t straight, designs that are out of focus or worse, rubber that wears out after only a few imprints, top quality through and through by CNCROi.com and Trodat, the world’s largest stamp manufacturer in the world!

Now that the Trodat professional 5212 custom self-inking stamp is finished production, it’s time to switch gears and make the Trodat professional 5206 custom self-inking stamp using the same laser, a different piece of rubber and the same attention to detail but this time scaled-up several fold.

Of course, if you are looking for a custom rubber stamp minus the Trodat mechanism, CNCROi.com can produce and ship that to you as well, some customers have an old stamper that’s still in perfectly good working condition, or industrial applications where only the rubber is needed on their drum.

We aren’t focused on any one type of rubber, some of our more industrial clients use quarter-inch thick or thicker rubber for their application, wicked overkill for the Trodat professional stamp but perfect for drums making wallpaper for instance with huge production runs.

There are many ways of producing a perfect imprint onto rubber, in this case, it’s the world’s largest self-inking stamp that is among our best sellers, the Trodat professional 5212 custom self-inking stamp.

When I say we can put just about any design on rubber, we mean it!

Whether you want something round, just text, wavy patterns, images or even family photos, as long as it’s a vector for ultimate resolution quality, CNCROi.com can make it for you!

The advantage of a larger rubber stamp like the Trodat Professional 5212 over say, the Trodat Professional 5206 is that it’s more flexible over YOUR lifetime so whether you need only a small stamp right now, in a few years, you may need a big one, so instead of buying another mechanism, just take the rubber off and get CNCROi.com to make you another.

Also, the ink pad is dramatically larger, so it holds more ink, both the Trodat 5206 and the Trodat 5212 have an internal metal housing so it’s great for a very long time under continuous pounding in both office and warehouse settings.

If you are wondering what the difference in ink pad color has on these self-inking stamps, check out this video showcasing the Trodat professional 5212 custom self-inking stamp in both red and black!

After the rubber stamp, in this case, for the Trodat 5212 self-inking stamp, is done, then it’s time to do a side by side comparison of the rubber alone so you can see how huge the size difference really is.

But first, one more look at the Trodat Professional 5212 self-inking stamp rubber CNCROi.com just made using Trodat rubber on our Trotec laser.

In the top of the image below, is the huge Trodat 5212 rubber stamp and below that, the relatively small Trodat 5206 rubber stamp, both look awful don’t they?

A quick clean-up reveals the high quality of both rubber stamps, the clarity is amazing, and it’s a perfect scale differentiation between the Trodat 5212 and the Trodat 5206.

By comparison, if you are wondering what the smallest Trodat stamp looks like, check out the Trodat Mobile Printy 9425 with a surface area of 25 mm or 1″ diameter or square which not only fits in your pocket but CNCROi.com produces as well.

The next step was sticking the rubber stamp in each stamping mechanism and then doing a quick test using the black ink, the ink pad for the Trodat 5212 and the Trodat 5206 is housed in that rectangular middle piece, upside down so that each time you press down (then up), it gets some fresh ink.

For the very first stamping by CNCROi.com right after clean-up and assembly, both stamps looks amazing, it generally takes a few imprints for the ink to evenly place itself across the rubber stamp we made, the larger the surface area of the stamp, the slightly longer it takes for things to settle.
