RIBtype is made of premium quality rubber or synthetic materials according to your requirements. Type is manufactured to a thickness of .210", +/- .003", the most exacting tolerances in the industry...guaranteed. This ensures uniform type thicknesses for the best impressions. The alignment of our type meets the same exacting tolerances. The "ribs" on RIBtype are symmetrical and perfectly match to the ribs on RIBtype® base sheets. This precision fit helps ensure that type seats uniformly and stays in place during printing. RIBtype is proudly made in the USA.
Unless otherwise specified, all RIBtype fonts, sorts, logos, and mats are made with U.S. Standard specifications as shown to the left.
Deep relief type is thicker overall, and the characters are deeper from the face to the base of the character. It is sometimes used to prevent the background from printing on uneven surfaces and because ink builds up less rapidly inside the characters.
