Picture roller.

Years ago my Dad used a rubber picture roller.
It was like a small rolling pin with a handle.
It seemed that it's purpose was to roll bubbles out of laminates.

I would like to purchase one.

Thanks in advance.

And they are useful with spray mount or laminates, but you may need slightly different roller material.

Any art supply store will have some. I've used the same ones silk screeners use when mounting prints to coreboard.

Amazon - search “laminate roller” and whole page will come with rollers in various sizes.

If you are applying the laminate or if it is down already, the roller will be of very little use. You need to improve your technique or use a laminator. For removing same bubbles, use a small squeegee made for this purpose. You can also pop the bubbles with an Exacto knife before squeezing the air out with a squeegee.

Used one of those rollers back in the day (1960's/70's making B & W glossies, rolling out water from wet darkroom prints face down onto a ferriotype tin,....once dry the prints would just pop off as glossies,...ohhhhh have we been spoiled over time,.....was just part of the hands on pride we took in our work.
