They can be also easily found on our Ebay or Amazon.
Ribbons last a long time unless you're typing constantly. If you type forty or sixty pages a week, you have to change the ribbon once a year or so (with new Original Pelikan ribbon you can write 500 pages easily)

My pink typewriter is amazing! It is my very first vintage piece and I am so happy with it. I really appreciate the great service I received from the sellers, they were friendly and understanding and always answered my many questions in a timely manner.
