This is a 1/2 inch replacement typewriter suitable ribbon for almost all manual Royal typewriter. It is sealed in a plastic sleeve and comes in a cardboard box.

This nylon typewriter ribbon comes in dual-color black and red ink, or all black ink, on 2" plastic spools. The ribbon has two automatic reversing grommets that allow the ribbon to reverse direction once it reaches the end in machines with this feature. (Not all typewriters have this ability, but most do.)

This is a universal replacement typewriter ribbon is suitable for Royal typewriters, both standard and portable versions, as well as many other brands, including Smith Corona, Brother, Olivetti, Adler, Sears, Underwood, Remington, and more.

Even if you have a typewriter that will not accept these spools, the ribbon itself can be used in any machine that accepts 1/2" ribbon. If the spools do not fit you can use appropriately sized spools (the ones already on you machine) and wind the ribbon onto those. This is not a complicated process, but can be confusing, so please contact me if you need help with it.

If you are not sure if this ribbon will fit your typewriter, please contact me with any questions.

Thanks for looking,
