In 1920, two of the three stencil machine manufacturing companies in the world were located in Belleville, IL. Both companies, Marsh and Ideal, also invented shipping and packaging supplies. Ink rollers such as Terrell McLemore's 1965 Fountain Roller have generally been replaced by ink jet printed labels.
