About TypeBarVintage

On Etsy since 2016

A passion for design!

In the beginning, all we needed was a place to repair and display a then small typewriter collection. One friend came looking for a typer, then another. The coffee machine was added - hey I'm half Italian after all! Then a table and some chairs. Now we have a new home to comfortably welcome our friends for a coffee and a type-in!
The TypeBar is not a big business company, rather a work of passion. I'm building up an interesting collection, so I can transform it into a gallery for industrial design here in Regensburg, Germany.
My intention is to keep those masterpieces of industrial design alive, to serve as tangible references for the generations to come!

We have many nice typewriters currently on display at our Etsy shop, so please feel free to browse and get detailed information for each listing.
You will also find useful information about shipping costs, custom orders, and more!
Remember that not everything is listed on Etsy! We have many other typers at the workshop, so if you are looking for something specific just let us know!

Frequently asked questions
╦ Why don't you accept returns?

╩ A typewriter is a delicate and heavy machine, which is a terrible combination for carriers worldwide! Normally, the typewriter will travel miles and miles until reaching your hands. The shipping costs for a returned typewriter would not pay-off, and the risk of damaging it on the return is big. So, please ask me everything you want to know, before you place your order! This way you can be sure that you are receiving the typewriter you actually wanted!

I only use 100% insured shippments, so in the remote event of a damaged good, I will make everything possible to either get your typewriter the way you wanted, or refund you. Just talk to me and we will sort things out!

╦ How about packing?

╩ Believe me, I know the feeling of waiting for a typewriter and, when it finally arrives, it is in a thousand pieces! Apart from all the trouble of filing a complaint, it is simply heart breaking. Did I mentioned that I love typewriters? I spend many hours of my time restoring it to the best condition I possible can, and do not want all my work wasted because of a lousy packing. Therefore, I do all the packing myself, the way I would like to receive it. Each typewriter is unique in terms of protection needs, and I make sure that each one is carefully packed with the appropriated materials, to prevent any damage during transportation.

╦ How long does it take to get here?

╩ As soon as the payment is confirmed, I will start processing your order. It can take something around 2 or 3 days, until I get the typewriter properly packed and sent to you.
If you requested some customization, it will take a bit more time to get it ready, which will be previously agreed with you.
Once the typer is dispatched, you will receive a tracking code and can monitor the estimated time until it arrives to your door.

╦ Who will carry it to me?

╩ I use the German carrier DHL for dispatching my typewriters worldwide. They are reliable and normally accurate in terms of estimation times. You can learn more about the delivery process here: https://www.dhl.de/en.html

Please note that the estimated delivery time is an ESTIMATE, provided by the carrier. Customs, union strikes, local weather conditions, plays a big role in delays.

Unsuccessful deliveries are usually due to incorrect destination addresses. Therefore, to avoid problems with the delivery, please double check the delivery address you provided for any misspelling or incorrectness. An unsuccessful delivery due to insufficient or incorrect address is of the responsibility of the buyer.

╦ What if the package arrives damaged?

╩ I always make a 100% insured shipment, so we can both be on the safe side on the unlikely event of a lost or damaged shipping.
If your package is taking longer than expected to arrive, please let me know as soon as possible, so I can check here from “my side”.

If your package arrives damaged, please inform immediately the courier when receiving the package, and take pictures of the damaged package and typewriter. This will be needed to claim the insurance and get a faster response from the carrier.

╦ What if it breaks after I start using it?

╩ Our typewriters, while maintained and serviced, are in fact used vintage or antique machines. As with all vintage or antique objects, unexpected malfunctions can occur during their use. While we try our hardest to provide good service, I can make no expressed or implied guarantee as to performance, durability or availability of parts.
As a collector, if you are able to bring the typewriter to my shop, I can take a look at it and see what happened. But there is no warranty implied.
