A very handsome typewriter! The brown matte finish is beautiful. It types so well and I didn’t find any issues. Suitable for active writers.

Please remember that unless you add the 6 Mo. warranty, the sale is final. We also recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad. New black/red Universal Ribbon installed for you. Ready to go!

Watch the demo video for my full review. Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. An extra ribbon can be added to your order and future replacement ribbons may be purchased on our website. Additionally, we highly recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to protect your table surface and to keep the typewriter from scooting! 😁 Also, a warranty add-on is available for added peace of mind. Please note that without the warranty, the sale is final.

If you purchase the warranty option, we will cover any mechanical issues NOT mentioned in the listing or demo video and are a result of regular daily use for 6 months starting from the day our tracking information shows that the typewriter was delivered. We recommend taking out your typewriter immediately and testing it for any issues. This warranty covers performance issues such as broken drawband, stuck keys, space bar malfunction, etc. It does NOT cover damage done to the exterior (chipped paint) or damage from misuse or accidents, such as dropping, banging, or improper use. Any attempts to adjust or repair the typewriter on your own VOIDS the warranty. We will always attempt to address issues over the phone or email first. After that, if the problem has not been resolved, we’ll give you instructions for returning the typewriter for repair. If there are damages as a direct result of shipping, please notify us immediately and follow the instructions found in our Shipping and Insurance Claim Policy.

Jot & Tittle Vintage Typewriters will cover the cost of repairs and return shipping TO YOU. The customer is responsible for the cost of getting the typewriter TO US for repairs. Our shipping address is: Jot & Tittle Vintage Typewriters; 5 Paola Lane; Kimberling City, MO 65686

If the typewriter is unrepairable, we will refund the full amount of the typewriter (less the cost of the warranty or any add-ons purchased). Questions? Please send us a direct message at hello@jotandtittletypewriters.com.
