Our Past


300 Years of Experience

Our Past


300 Years of Experience

Our Past

1703 Izaak Enschedé started a small printing office in the city of Haarlem. Working together with his son Johannes – after whom the company was named – he laid the foundations of an enterprise that is now over three centuries old, still going strong and has had eight successive generations of Enschedé family members at the helm. 

1737 the small printing office became the city of Haarlem's official printer, producing what is now one of the oldest newspapers in the world.

1810 Joh. Enschedé printed its first banknote for use in the Dutch East and West Indies. This was followed in 1814 by the production of the first Dutch banknotes, printed for the newly formed Dutch national bank. It was colloquially named 'roodborstje' meaning 'robin' for its red colour and musical decorations. Numerous pleasant looking banknotes of the highest quality followed.

1866 the first stamps depicting King William III were produced. In the decades following, stamps were produced for almost all countries in the world, becoming an important part of the Joh. Enschedé portfolio, making the company world market leader. In the decades from 1900 till 2000 the company has evolved to become a leader in the field of high quality security printing producing new products like cheques, visa’s, tax stamps, certificates etcetera. 

2000 Joh. Enschedé became one of the first printers of euro banknotes. Meeting the high quality and security requirements and being one of the most efficient printing companies, Joh. Enschedé has been able to win many tenders in this extremely competitive market.

2003 Joh. Enschedé became Royal Joh. Enschedé. Three centuries of being a reliable supplier, producer, adviser, and innovator has made Her Majesty Queen Beatrix decide to bestow the title 'Royal Warrant Holder' upon us, on the occasion of the celebration of the third centenary in 2003.

2013 the Enschedé family sold the majority of its shares in Royal Joh. Enschedé to two private equity parties, thus enabling the company to enter a new promising future in the international high security printing world.
