Whoa! You can't buy your own item.


This is a 1/2 inch replacement typewriter ribbon for any manual Smith-Corona, or Corona, typewriter. It is sealed in a plastic sleeve and comes in a cardboard box.

This nylon typewriter ribbon comes in 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 replacement typewriter ribbon is suitable for almost all Smith-Corona typewriters, both standard and portable versions, as well as many other brands, including Brother, Royal, Olivetti, Sears, Montgomery Ward, Adler, Underwood, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: The ribbons spools will not fit some Smith-Corona machines, such as Skyriters and other ultra-portables that use 1.5" spools. If you are not sure what type of spool or ribbon your machine takes, please feel free to ask me.

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,

I ordered a typewriter ribbon for an old typewriter I recently purchased. The customer service was amazing. Super quick shipping and tracking was great. The ribbon is just what I needed. Thanks!
