Read what our Scrapbook.com customer reviews say about the Mint Typewriter:
“I just love this typewriter from We R! Everything came in working order and is very easy to use. I haven't changed out the 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 two color options on one strip.” – AliceScrapsWonderland

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
Good news: Cute, nostalgic pretty mint green. Bought this vintage typewriter for mom who is 90. She was a typist in the 1940’s, I thought she would be thrilled since electronic devices baffle her. Bad news: The keys are too difficult to strike even for my strong fingers. Neither a useful or efficient writing tool for crafting or correspondence. Also, it arrived with a dry ink ribbon.
More good News: EXCELLENT customer service. A return UPS label & full refund was provided.
I love this typewriter. After reading bad reviews I looked it up on Youtube, there I saw a complete guide on how to unpack it and all the functions. Brought me back to a typing class in junior high.
It can type on watercolor paper, and it's retro. You do have to strike each key with force, but I like how it looks inside a hand made card. It's so cool.
My concerns while searching for a typewriter was price, ribbon availability, and of course it needed to actually function properly. I found used typewriters would not meet my three criteria. The We R Memory Keepers typewriter is comparable priced to used, questionably functional typewriters. The added benefit, We R Memory Keepers will function or can be sent back to scrapbook.com.
With this typewriter, I personalized a stamped sentiment. I used washi tape to attach the diecut piece to copy paper, typed my message, and then stamped. Possibilities are endless to alter/add-to stamped sentiments/images. I am happy with this purchase.
This came in perfect condition ready to type with. It takes me back to the early 60's when I first learned how to type.....yes on a manual typewriter.
I love the effect you get when typing journal cards for your Bible or memory keeping projects.
I love it.
It doesn't maintain the line - slips so it's a downward line. The spacing is off between characters, the exclamation point hits half a line below other text. After typing out one nearly acceptable line, it stopped typing at all and the keys would just jam up. I have been typing for 40 years and have used much 'older' style than this. It is a toy that barely functions. This is not something to type in forms or correspondence. Huge waste of time and money.
I can only guess that the positive reviews were from people who never tried to use it and kept it because it's cute.
