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.
