TYPEWRITER SPECIMEN CARDS FOR THE ANALOG COLLECTOR & ENTHUSIAST:

As a member of the Typosphere, it is likely you own more than a few typewriters, and how you keep track of them is anyone's guess.... ask me how I know.

Here is a creative way to show off your collection and create a unique archive for your ANALOG TRIBE.

ABOUT:

- TYPEWRITER SPECIMEN CARDS offers a unique and artful way to catalog your darlings.
- Each HANDMADE NOTEBOOK contains 18 perforated cards that may be torn out, adorned, then placed in a journal, framed, pinned, or shared.
- The cards feature the word "TYPEWRITER" in 8 languages including English, Welsh (of course), German, French, Japanese, Swedish, Spanish and Italian and each are framed with various graphic designs.
- Each TYPEWRITER SPECIMEN CARD has space to provide a PHOTO or SKETCH of your machine, plus the critical details regarding MAKE, MODEL, SERIAL NUMBER, YEAR of manufacture, and a TYPE SAMPLE.

And those who have a side fetish for fountain pens will find these matte-finish cards accommodate pen and ink drawings & handwritten notes well.

The cards may also be embellished with die-cut snips, paper ephemera, and rubber stamping for those with a knack for crafting.

TYPEWRITER SPECIMEN CARDS : Get creative, feel inspired, archive the tribe.

Shipped via USPS First Class next day so you can get happy.

Care instructions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Packaging these delicate machines for shipment is a must and Teipiadur uses high quality cardboard boxes, lots of peanuts, bubble wrap, airbags, strapping tape to reinforce box corners,and specific handling labels for the carrier to understand the fragility of their freight.

Will I Need To Purchase a Ribbon for my Typewriter

Not right away. Every typewriter sold on Teipiadur comes with a brand new ribbon installed so you may begin typing at once. The type of ribbon installed on your new typewriter is clearly denoted in the listing.
Here is the 411 on ribbon:
A new NYLON ribbon will last for @ 350 pages of type; a new COTTON ribbon is good for @ 700 pages, and a premium SILK ribbon is good for up to 1500 pages.

Return & Exchange Policy Explained

While Teipiadur has an *ALL SALES ARE FINAL* policy, I prioritize customer satisfaction. If your order arrives severely damaged, or not functioning please contact me immediately - WITHIN 3 DAYS OF DELIVERY - and document any defects. All machines are sold in full working order so damage or functionality concerns will likely be a shipping issue. Failure to notify me within this parameter will nullify your claim and limit my ability provide reparation.

Vintage 101

VINTAGE - as applied to typewriters in this shop - means the typewriters are likely older than you, or possibly your parents.

All machines are in USED / PREVIOUSLY OWNED condition, bearing age-related marks + wear conducive to time and use.

Every typewriter sold on Teipiadur has been serviced/restored to full functionality, cleaned, inside and out, polished and listed with accurate notes and pictures depicting any major flaws or discrepancies.

While all typewriters offered for sale are in perfect working condition, expect your typewriter to show some visible signs of age. These are generally a testament to the machine's charm and history, not detractors.

Always ask questions before purchasing to insure your satisfaction.

Average:

Like all of Sam's items the Specimen Cards show not only her love of typewriters but the creativity she adds. The cards feed well in the machines I've used them in. I now wish I would have had something like this being used to keep a log of items I no longer have. Much better than my memory.
