Keeping memories with a typewriter?

2016  |  We R Keeping Memories Typecast

















This is the type specimen (front and back) that came with the machine.



And here is a scan of the cover of the manual and the unpacking instructions.




Here's the typewriter display at the local Michael's store. I picked up several of the ribbons and intend to get some good use out of them. As you can see with the one included in the machine, they seem to be heavily inked which is good for long-term use, even if a bit too dark at first.

my gallery for this machine on the Typewriter Database.
