What is RIBtype?
RIBtype® is an interchangeable rubber stamp system of ribbed-back type for printing dates, codes, and other information that changes frequently.
Like a tongue and groove system, "ribs" on the back of the type interlock with ribs on a stamping device so you can create your own message and change them as needed. Perfect for lot numbers, part marking, date codes, etc.
RIBtype sets of letters and numbers are readily available in sizes from 1/16" to 2" character heights, and we can manufacture custom pieces of artwork, words/phrases, complex mats, and more. It makes RIBtype a versatile and economical solution to your printing needs.
We can make most things into RIBtype -- custom letters, text, phrases, artwork, multi-line imprints, etc. Using custom RIBtype can save labor costs, reduce human error, and make superior imprints. Most custom type ships after two business days.

RIBtype® rubber type 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.
