I just love this typewriter from WeR! Everything came in working order and is very easy to use. I haven't changed out ribbons yet though. I love that you can put a whole 12x12 sheet in it and type journaling directly on the page--this is so handy! I love that it feels like a real vintage typewriter too. Depressing keys feels exactly like on my 100+ year old vintage typewriter and that gives you more control over how much ink is transferred to the page. A light press leaves less ink and a good firm punch of a key leaves a very "inky" letter (this may take some trial and error until you get used to it). Though the back end of the typewriter is a little heavy because of the carriage, it is not nearly as heavy as my 100+ year old typewriter. The mint color is so pretty too and I love that each of the ribbons have 2 color options on one strip.
I received this typewriter on January 26th. I got it all set up and the return carriage was defective. It will not return the carriage or advance the roller to the next line. I think it had to be defective before it was shipped. I called Scrapbook.Com and talked to a very nice lady. She said she would send me a return UPS label to send the typewriter back and would send a replacement typewriter. I am waiting for the return label. Leslie Cooper
