This is a typewriter pad, or typewriter mat, designed to be used with vintage and antique typewriters. It is approximately 12" by 12", and is suitable for use on almost any typewriter.

**TYPEWRITER PAD**
I've been collecting, refurbishing, and selling typewriters for a while, and I regularly recommend a good typewriter pad for anyone who buys a typewriter. A good typewriter pad will keep your machine in place as you type, reduce vibration, and reduce noise.

This pad is made of two materials: a rubber bottom and a non-woven, ribbed fabric top. The rubber bottom grips onto a desktop or table surface and provides sound and motion deadening that pure non-woven (felt) pads cannot duplicate.

At the same time, the mat has a ribbed fabric top that more easily grips typewriter feet. Flat-surface pads don't have these ribs, and lighter typewriters can slide on top of the flatter pads. Also, because many of the rubber feet on older typewriters have hardened over the years, the feet themselves don't have the same grippy quality they once had. The ribs on this pad serve as a physical barrier that prevent these hardened feet from sliding around. (Felt or non-ribbed fabric doesn't do this, so even on felt pads these older machines can still move.)

I've used a variety of pads before, and sold several previous versions that I wasn't completely happy with. This pad is different. If you have a vintage or antique typewriter, no matter the condition, this pad provides both noise-dampening and motion-stopping benefits that I haven't found in similar products. I think this is the best typewriter pad available on the market right now.

Thank you for looking, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

**Please note, this listing is for one typewriter pad. The beautiful Royal Quiet De Luxe pictured in the photos is not included.

**Also note, the pads can be slightly different than those in the photos. They can differ slightly in color and texture, though they all have the non-woven fabric top and the rubber, grippy bottom.

It is amazing! It's a perfect fit and very durable. My typewriter is stuck in place perfectly and no more wandering around the desk! Worth the price in everyway. He also included a free ribbon of ink, which just made the experience all the more worth while; customer service in general was amazing as well. Every message I sent was promptly replied to, and that's something rare these days. I definitely suggest getting this pad, it's better quality than all the other ones on the market and you get great customer service.

Glad that I bought this. It really does work effectively. My typewriter does not move a bit, with this pad underneath. The pad arrived in perfect condition, in a reasonable time. Great seller.

It took me a while to get over the threshold of paying $25 for a pad. It's crazy to feel so good about this pad, but I really like it. It is slim enough to take with me on a trip and it works great. I'm glad I bought it. Mine is black, which I prefer.

It fit my typewriter perfectly! Wonderful quality, and it dampened the noise to boot which is what I was looking for as well.
