Our Repair Shop professionally services each typewriter. We have 10 years of experience in restoring thousands of typewriters. We always work hard to make these machines shine and type smoothly again. They're taken apart, thoroughly cleaned (deep chemical cleaning) reassembled, oiled, and adjusted. Also polished or repainted if needed and if it's possible.

Olivetti launched a fiery red portable typewriter which quickly became so iconic that it was already part of MoMA's permanent collection by 1971. The Olivetti Valentine portable typewriter was designed by industrial designer Perry King in collaboration with Ettore Sottsass and was released in 1969 along with a groovy advertisement campaign.
The designers wanted the Valentine Typewriter to be an "anti-machine machine," for use "anyplace but an office. Olivetti produced the Valentine in two colours: red and the rarely seen white edition. As a typewriter the Valentine was not an outstanding commercial success for Olivetti, however, its radical design was recognized as revolutionary. the Valentine expresses the mood of its time: goodbye to the bulky cast-iron housings of old typewriters, hello to the new mobility of a light, modern, plastic casing made from ABS. When the outer case is closed, the Valentine is totally covered by a simple plastic shell. The Valentine is revered as a 20th-century design icon and has been collected and displayed by design museums internationally.
