Our Spindle rollers are made from Nitrile rubber, they are excellent quality, easy clean and they are a dream to use. We make soft, medium and hard Spindle rollers in 3 different sizes. You can also purchase a Roller Holder for each spindle roller that can sit on the work surface, or be put on the wall.

Our printmaking rollers can be used to print the following plates, lino, woodblock, intaglio etchings, photo-etchings, solar plates (if your inking in relief), photoengraver, collagraph, letterpress, mono-printing and monotype.

For single inkings with 1,2,3 or rainbow colours you can purchase any size roller and ink any size plate up even if the plate is larger than your roller. For inking plates up with colour you have extended, it is advisable to purchase a roller that is larger than your plate.

When you are inking up the relief surface of an already inked intaglio plate you will only be able to go over the plate once which means the size of your roller will have to be larger than the plate you are printing.

The smallest roller  is 4” Diameter x 10” length = a circumference of 12.56” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 10” x 12.56”

The medium roller  is 5” Diameter x 14” length = a circumference of 15.70” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 14” x 15.70”

The largest roller is 6” Diameter x 20” length = a circumference of 18.84” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 20” x 18.84”

We can also make bespoke spindle rollers and holders so if there is a particular size you would like, get in touch.
