TYPEWRITERS - Will be dressed with a large bow and have a typed gift tag with your personal short message.

Once you've purchased the gift wrap option for your analog gift, be sure to message Sam at Teipiadur with any pertinent details.
Normally the Teipiadur Gift Wrap is not sold as general merchandise as it is not traditional gift wrap but rather
an in-house design that is printed on vintage bond paper size 11"x14" = Good for wrapping small gifts or you may purchase multiple sheets for larger gifts.
Black & White striped twine is included and the paper will be shipped via USPS Media Mail.

All machines are insured when shipped and generally do not require signature upon delivery given the ongoing Pandemic.
If you would prefer your order to be signed for, please notify the shop when ordering.
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. All typewriters are fully insured and trackable.
If your purchase is a gift, choose Teipiadur Gift Wrap from the shop listings and add to cart for an added special touch.
Be sure to communicate the name of the gift recipient and any personal message to be included.
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.
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 - 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.
