In 1973, as Totalia was working with Duplo International Company from Japan, Totalia Company started importing the first stencil printers and from that time, these printers were welcomed and used in schools and offices.
It is worth mentioning that those days, the stencil printers were going their first production stages, so that for printing and duplicating a transcript, you were supposed to transfer a copy of the transcript on a specific paper, called stencil paper, (something like master copy paper in nowadays photocopy machines) and for that matter, the machine’s operator had to write his requisite transcript with a specific pen on a stencil paper and thereby, there would be some holes and furrow for the movement of the ink on the paper. Then, the operator would twist the paper around the copy drum of the machine with his hand so that meantime, the ink would pass through the stencil paper layer and transfer to the paper.
In 1973, and along with the initial aim of the company in the supply of the calculating equipment, Totalia Company started to provide and sell cash register, made by RODBEL from America. Those days, most of the salesmen were still using traditional abacuses for calculating and the addition of sales items, therefore these machines were highly welcomed and were used in big markets at first.
