In 2013, the businesses of William Jones Clifton (est. 1838), Mark C Brown (est. 1930) and Ludwig (est. 1910) were merged into one company with the name changed to COLOP UK Ltd. Over the following five years the company continued to expand its stationery market sales activities whilst growing market share in the wholesaler markets.

At the end of May 2019, COLOP UK re-located to fit for purpose premises in Birmingham.

Chris Deighton, Managing Director and his 11 colleagues are focussing on three market sectors:

(a) Traditional stamp market
(b) Digital products such as e-mark and Reiner electronic stamps
(c) newly acquired from Royal Posthumous, COLOP Arts and Crafts products

October 2019 saw the e-mark sold successfully on the national Create and Craft TV shopping channel.
