We always install a new ribbon prior to shipping so your typewriter will be ready to use the minute you unpack it. If you need more of them, you can purchase them in our shop (check Ribbon and Accessories section) , we have them always available.
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)
So if all you're doing is casual correspondence you shouldn't have too much to worry about there.

This is my third set of painted vintage metal spools, and they are superb! And, like before, shipping was prompt, and much like opening a Cracker Jacks box, I found a surprise in the package! Ania and Jacek are world-class Sellers to give such attention to something as seemingly small as a pair of vintage metal spools. But that's because they're lovely people, the essential component of any world-class Seller.

It's uncommon to find a Seller who is not only expert in the goods they offer, but delivers them with panache, courtesy, and that certain respect that only comes from a deep connection with such goods. Ania and Jacek are completely uncommon in this regard. My painted metal spools arrived quickly from overseas, and glow upon my gold and burgundy Erika 5 machines. More than that, they stayed in communication with me during the entire process; indeed, the little metal spools might have been a museum piece worth many thousands as they were treated with the same level of care.
