★The Royal Sprite is one of those quirky typewriters that you either love or hate. When this machine came off the production lines Royal already had offices in Holland which, without a doubt, influenced the Danish Moderne aesthetic of this typer. The sharp angular lines give it a truly unique shape while a block-color palette sets it apart from all typewriters. I use adjectives like "jarring" and "boxy" as terms of endearment for this little dynamo. Further adding to its peculiarity are the atomic red knobs bursting from the sides of the carriage. The Sprite is a favorite among collectors for its eccentric form and typists love its ease of use. The low profile stature and ABS construction makes it a featherweight among typewriters; ideal for easy transport and easy storage.

The Sprite listed here is nearly mint. It has the most minor of scuffs in front of the spacebar. The typewriter is ridiculously clean and all of the chrome is brilliant. It types 10 characters per inch (pica). An original case top is included. Overall, a very quirky & very fun machine in Minty Condition.

Why buy from me:

Each revitalized typewriter comes with a new platen so you can enjoy it a lifetime of worry free service (no one else offers this). Old platens get hard and can chip, crack or even damage the typebars.

You get two new, all-black ribbons of which one will be installed just prior to shipment.

Economy postage within the US is included in the purchase price.

I use a new double-wall box and new packing materials for each typewriter (no used mattress foam or funky old boxes from me).

Each revitalized typewriter is completely taken apart and cleaned of any old eraser shavings, cobwebs and dust. It is then reassembled, lubed, tuned and tested so a "turn-key" typewriter arrives at your doorstep. Simply unpack and type!

Me and my typewriters have been featured in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, NBC, CBS, NPR and several other media outlets. I've also exhibited my collection publicly at nationally galleries... I know typewriters.

Get inspired and write something!

★I'm always looking to buy rare or interesting typewriters and typewriter related items such as large format posters, neon clocks, sign, etc... I'm also interested in buying large collections.

★I love typewriters! The clickety-clack of the type bars and the ding of a bell is like a symphony. Watching the springs and levers react with each keystroke is performance art. These old machines arouse and assault the senses whether they are on display or in action.

I want you to like me...
