This is a 1/2 inch replacement typewriter ribbon for any manual Olympia typewriter. It is sealed in a plastic sleeve and comes in a cardboard box.

You can also choose to include a correction tape applicator with each purchase. These applicators allow you to apply correction tape, commonly called White Out, over errors and type over them again.


**RIBBON FEATURES**
This nylon typewriter ribbon comes in black and red, 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.)

**SUITABLE MODELS*
This replacement typewriter ribbon is suitable for Olympia typewriters, both standard and portable versions, as well as many other brands, including Smith Corona, Brother, Olivetti, Adler, Sears, Underwood, and more. It is a 1/2" ribbon with universal spools designed to fit almost all 1/2" ribbon machines,

PLEASE NOTE. The ribbon spools may not fit all Olympias. However, you can use the ribbon itself as a replacement, winding it on any pre-existing spools you might have.

**WINDING RIBBON ONTO PRE-EXISTING SPOOLS**
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 your 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,
Mark

Was the perfect size for my Olympia typewriter. (I kept ordering ribbons with the incorrect hole size, which was so bothersome until I found this listing.) IMO ink ribbons are expensive! Nevertheless, I would get it again—thank you!

Great seller! I bought things listed as a package, but I didn’t see and added them to my purchase individually. He alerted me to that and is refunding the price difference! Wonderful! Everything arrived as stated. I will purchase from him again and again!

I received my order yesterday, July 2nd. It came much faster than expected! The items seem to be what I ordered and should work fine with my typewriter. Thanks for the great service and fast delivery!
