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.

Had a wonderful experience with this shop. Had a crazy idea of getting typewriters for a group of boys aged 10-12 who are in a book club. This company came through for me with 5 Olivetti Doras. The typewriter is very light and easy to type on. Perfect for the kids. FYI: The children LOVED the typewriters. Was nervous about getting something as old- fashioned as typewriters for boys who are used to electronics. But they LOVED them! I am hoping the love lasts. :)
