Conrad Machine Co. is proud to offer the finest hand inking rollers in several different types and sizes. Our inking rollers are made from a custom steel and aluminum core that is precision ground and fitted with our unique, colorful handles. Our rubber rollers are wrapped with a unique combination of Buna Nitrite rubber. This durable rubber has proven to provide consistent inking while maintaining a long life without cracking. However, rubber is not the only material that we offer for our inking rollers. You can get a Conrad Machine Co. inking roller wrapped with a variety of materials including rubber, polyurethane, S.L.C., and traditional leather rollers. Please scroll down or see our printmaking catalog for more information.

Conrad Machine Co. ink rollers are also offered in larger diameter and face length sizes. Please see the chart below for specific sizes. We also offer custom sized inking rollers. If you print larger scale work and require larger, custom ink rollers, please contact us for sizing and pricing options. Conrad Machine Co. has made many different custom sized rollers over the last six decades. We would love to work with you to provide a custom roller that meets your printmaking needs.
All Conrad Machine Co. Ink Rollers can be easily cleaned. There are many different cleaning products that can be utilized depending on the type of ink being used. For instance, you can clean oil-based ink off of your roller with a light solvent like mineral spirits. Storing your roller is also quite easy. Simply place blocks under the handles to suspend the roller face above your table. This will keep the roller material from flattening out while sitting for expended periods of time.
All Conrad Machine Co. Ink Rollers can be custom fit with any color anodized aluminum handles for a more personal touch. Your custom handles can match your press, apron, or even studio! We can custom make any color handles. Please contact us for your specific desired color, as not all available colors are shown here.
