Item details

This is a brand new universal 1/2 inch red and black nylon typewriter ribbon on 2 inch plastic spools, and will fit most typewriters that take this size ribbon and spools. These spools have an expandable center, so they are designed to fit spindles of various sizes, and work great on most typewriters, such as Royal Quiet De Luxe, Smith Corona, Underwood, and many other major typewriter brands.

If your typewriter currently has vintage metal spools, and you prefer to keep the "vintage" vibe of metal spools, or your typewriter has different size spools (such as some Remingtons) you can always and easily wind the fresh, new ribbon onto your existing metal spools (please contact if you need any assistance with this).

Ribbon: exactly 1/2 inch red and black nylon
Spools: exactly 2 inch diameter black plastic

This item is made in the USA and is factory sealed.
