I love my typewriter - I remember our old underwood typewriter that I used to type my thesis in college - bought it mainly for those happy memories, but the typewriter is great to use as well. Highly recommended!
This is too cute. It sits perfectly on my scrapbooking desk area. It is easy to use; from the unpacking to the loading of paper. The instructional video in the description area is very thorough and helpful making it easy to start to use the typewriter. I have a light tap to the keys so I am glad that you can set how dark you want the letters to appear on your paper. It is so easy to use that I let my 7 and 4 yr old use it to type a quick message to put in their dads briefcase! I absolutely adore this vintage throwback!
We are so spoiled with the soft touch of our computers, this typewriter is going to take a while to get used to. Good thing I bought it to use for cards and layouts because I won't be winning any speed contests. I love We R Memory Keepers products and even though this will be a challenge for a while it will work great
for what I am going to use it for.
Had actually bought this for my mother in law who had been wanting one since they first came out. Finally ordered one and was not fulfilled. It does require a firm touch, that i did expect. The keys kept sticking and the metal arms would cross each other and stick, making having to manually untangle them every few words. Had bought extra ribbons as well hoping to love it but ended up returning 2 days later. Will look for an authentically old heavy duty machine or wait till the kinks are figured out. (for the high price had expected better quality)
I do NOT recommend buying this typewriter. The ribbon was correctly placed but would not move so the ink would not provide a clean letter. I was so frustrated. I can't wait to take it back to the store!!!!! Not even worth the money!!!
