It arrived bent
from Orlando, Florida
Comments about Blick Hard Rubber Roller:
I received the roller and it is bent. It wasn't worth the time to pack the thing up and pay to send it back. So I don't know if it's just a cheap product that was manufactured poorly or Dick Blck didn't package it correctly and it bent in shipping. Either way it was a complete waste of money and probably the last time I order anything from Dick Black.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the damaged roller, and we'll be happy to replace that for you. Just call 1-800-723-2787 to speak to a Customer Care Agent.

Really does the job. Solidly built.
from Cambria, CA
A good, plain working tool. Very happy with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
By Barb the photographer
I use this tool to flatten a mounted photo onto your self stick mount board. Works well, easy to roll, no special training or practice needed.

Is it rusty?
from Atl, GA
I should have known that the price of this Brayer was too good to be true. I purchased it for the length. I don't like the snap in brayers. The rubber is sticky before you even get ink on it and it doesn't roll very well. It's almost as if it's rusted on the inside. The sound it makes as it rolls is awful. It must have a bow in it because one whole side of the brayer doesn't pick up any ink at all. In addition, the rubber part is glued off center on the middle roller - this could be the reason for all the other malfunctions.
Merchant response: We apologize for the defective roller, and we'd like to help you with this. A member of our Customer Care Team will be following up via email to assist you.

Works for the purpose that I bought it
Best Student Brayers
By Moon Shines Brightly
It takes a very long time for our brayers to wear out and they are heavily used! I love the Testrite for the quality (very sturdy handle and roller) and the price. I ordered three instead of my planned quantity of two because they were on sale. Brayers are an investment in a tool, not just a common consumable purchase item, so I had no qualms about ordering the extra one.

Not for block printing
from Neenah, WI
I purchased this brayer because it was one of the few 8 inch ones I could find online and was hoping to use it for woodblock printing. Unfortunately, the roller had a bowed shape to it, leaving large gaps in the ink layer I was trying to apply to my blocks. Looks like going cheap didn't pay off this time.
Merchant response: The roller of this brayer should not be bowed and sounds defective. Our Customer Care team is happy to help you with a return or exchange. A member of our team will be in touch. You can always give us a call at 1.800.723.2787 if you ever receive an item that's damaged or defective.

Completely useless brayer
from San Diego
This brayer/roller is seriously terrible. It cannot spread the ink consistently at all, in fact, it is wobbly and unusable. I would not recommend it.
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that this product did not perform as expected. Our Customer Care team is happy to assist you with a return or exchange for another item. Please give us a call at 1-800-723-2787, we are happy to help.
Rubber roller sleeves shifts on the core
from La Crosse, WI
I'm new to printmaking, but noticed right away that I couldn't get a smooth rollout of ink. Discovered the rubber sleeves were sliding left/right on the core and not rolling smoothly so I ended up with skids and streaks of ink. Am returning these and upgrading to a better grade brayer.
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with this product. Our Customer Care team is always happy to assist you with a return or exchange for another item that might better meet your needs. Please do not hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-723-2787.
