How hard is it to find typewriter ribbons these days? How long does the average spool of ribbon last? How many pages does the average spool of ribbon type?

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.

Very happy with the typewriter I received -- packed and shipped with care and beautiful as described. Will definitely buy from this seller in the future.

Fantastic service and typewriter arrived in excellent condition. Many thanks.

The Olivetti I ordered came exactly as described, in perfect condition and on time. Thank you

Even though my beautiful typewriter was packed very carefully and securely, it suffered a little damage in shipping and had to be taken to a repair shop to be fixed. Luckily, the repair was simple once I was able to find someone to do it, and Ania and Jacek were with me every step of the way. They helped me look for someone here in Texas all the way from Spain, and paid for the full cost of the local repair. They even offered to send me another typewriter to replace mine if the problem could not be solved. They were truly invested in my satisfaction, and I appreciate it. Thank you!
