Is my old rubber type compatible with RIBtype? RIBtype is compatible with Baselock®, Grip-line®, Sta-tite®, Dilok®, and several other brands of ribbed rubber type. Although very few customers have problems switching from other brands to RIBtype, not all conversions will be exact. Differences in style and alignment may be noticable in some cases. Additionally, using worn type with new type can result in less than ideal impressions. Let us know if you have concerns about a particular match-up.
Do you have large characters? Yes, RIBtype can be made in virtually any size 1/16" and taller. We have standard set-ups in sizes ranging from 1/16" to 4" and there are type sets available in sizes up to 2". Your custom sizes and styles can also be made; please contact us regarding your exact needs.
I don't see what I'm looking for, can you make it? The RIBtype product line has so many custom products and applications that it is impossible to list every one.
