Item details

Vintage from the 1960s

Materials

Steel, Rubber, Chrome, Plastic

This is a Royal Royalite portable manual typewriter in good working condition. The Royal Royalite, like similar ultra-portable models from Royal of the time, is a compact, trim, and light machine, made to be as easy-to-travel as possible.

As with all my typewriters, I have cleaned, repaired, lubricated and polished this vintage typewriter, and it is ready to use.

**COSMETIC CONDITION**
Cosmetically, this Royal manual typewriter is good condition. There are some significant wear and use marks, such as on the return bar where some of the nickel-plated coating has come off. The olive green shell with the forest green keys and metal accents make for a pleasant combination, and give this machine a solid mid-century aesthetic.

This typewriter does not come with a carrying case.

**MECHANICAL CONDITION**
Mechanically, this Royal type writer is in good condition. When I found it there were several mechanical issue that had to be addressed, but the machine is back in working shape now. The platen has hardened with age, and will leave indents and possibly an occasional cutout in the page when you type.

**INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING**
I do ship internationally, so please contact me for a quote if you are interested in any of my typewriters.

**RECOMMENDED BUYER**
I believe this typewriter is a perfect for a designer who wants a green typewriter, a new typist who wants a small, working machine for occasional use, or as a gift for a child or teen who wants a typewriter of their own. This is an entry-level machine, and as such I do not recommend it for someone who wants a reliable typewriter for daily or heavy use.

Thanks for looking, and feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Returns and exchange details

I sell vintage and antique typewriters that are no longer made, some of which are 100 years old or more. As much as I'd love to be able to tell you that they will always be problem-free and last forever, I can't, because they won't.

Older machines can develop problems without notice, even if they're properly maintained and loved. I promise to accurately describe, photograph, or video any typewriter I sell. If you want additional photos or have questions about anything, all you have to do is ask. You can also inspect the machines in person if you are in the Kansas City area.

So, to make a long story short, I will accept most returns, but I do ask that you pay for return shipping. If your typewriter does not work as it should upon arrival, I'll accept a return unless it was sold as a display model. Also, if you do experience a problem, many times there is a simple repair that will solve it. I can often walk you through the repair so you don't have to send the typewriter back.

Questions about your order?

Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Shipping policies

Unless otherwise agreed to or specified, I'll ship all typewriters via USPS, FedEx, or UPS at my discretion. I will use the method that is most economical for my buyers, and will ship to anywhere in the continental United States.

If you are located outside of the United States, please contact me before making a purchase. I can usually arrange shipping, but I don't want to make any promises I cannot keep.

As far as packaging goes, shipping typewriters is notoriously problematic for some people. Typewriters have heavy moving parts (the carriages) that can be easily damaged if not properly secured. I lock the carriages on all shipped typewriters if they have that feature, but I may also secure them with additional safety measures. I use a variety of techniques to make sure your machine gets to you in exactly the same condition it was in when I boxed it up.

Please be advised that some typewriters are very heavy, and can weigh 40 pounds or more. These heavier machines naturally have higher shipping costs associated with them.

Payments

Secure options
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept credit cards, PayPal, or Etsy gift cards. If you absolutely must have a machine and cannot pay me with either of these methods, please contact me so we can try to work out a solution. I know how strong the pull of a vintage manual typewriter can be, and I'll do my best to make sure I get your baby to you.

Additional policies

A lot of vintage stuff, especially typewriters, is beautiful and awesome. But I suppose you already knew that.
