Our story began in 1994

Since our inception in 1994 TAMPOPRINT International Corporation has strived to provide superior customer service to the pad printing market in the western hemisphere. Working in coordination with our headquarters in Germany we pride ourselves in bringing the newest technologies in our industry to the North American market.

As a full service provider we carry a complete line of inks, pads, clichés, and machines to fill our customer’s needs.

Pioneering spirit and innovative strength from Germany

65 years ago, TAMPOPRINT modernized the printing industry. In order to make the transfer of ink to almost any curved or uneven materials and bodies even better, our company founder Wilfried Philipp developed the innovative idea of replacing the previously used gelatine pads, which were not very stable, with silicone pads and at the same time automating the process with suitable machines: the birth of industrial pad printing. This laid the foundation for even better printing results that could be reproduced at any time. Today, TAMPOPRINT is a globally recognized supplier and offers standardized as well as customized solutions for pad printing and laser marking - including all process steps and all from a single source.

Memories of Wilfried Philipp

“Are you happy with it?” was his most common question during the weekly company tour. He said he was satisfied when the employees were satisfied. And he could afford that, he said, because his people had a fire inside them. There was no need to ask who lit that fire when you saw the sparkle in his eyes.



The headquarters of the TAMPOPRINT Group is located in Korntal-Münchingen, Germany. What was once a one-man business is now a medium-sized company with about 150 employees. In addition to two subsidiaries in the USA and Spain, the TAMPOPRINT Group includes a worldwide dealer network.
