The White Typecast Collection Typewriter is oh-so pretty for so many craft and DIY Projects! This retro vibe typewriter by We R Memory Keepers is a classy white with black keys. The typewriter is fully functioning and makes it easy to add typewritten text to layouts, planners, treat bags, cards, tags, notes, labels and more! Included is one typewriter that holds various weights of paper and cardstock up to 12" wide and features:
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!
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)
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.
This type writer is adorable but useless. I'm old enough to have used manual typewriters at my first few jobs so it's not user error. The metal arms would get stuck mid air or cross to far over to hit the paper and they got crossed over each other. The return carriage didn't work. After fixing arms several times and getting it to finally type a letter, the ribbon did not advance so I couldn't type the next letter. I wanted to love it but it's junk. And the price is ridiculous. I found a cheaper once on Amazon that works wonderfully. It's not as cute but it works and was $30 cheaper! Company should be embarrassed and work out the kinks before producing anymore.
I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. It has not worked at all since she opened it. You have to push hard to get a letter on the paper. It does not print a full letter, all are missing the bottom part of the letter. It will not type capital letters at all. When typing in red, there is a partial red letter with a partial black letter above. I don't know if I got a defective unit or if all of them have problems, but this was expensive and I expected better quality from We R Memory Keepers.
