IF YOU OWN A TYPEWRITER OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES... chances are you are always on the lookout for quality typing paper.
While a typewriter is willing to work with you on just about any medium - plain old printer paper, the back of an envelope, a paper bag - there is no substitute for the typewritten word on premium paper.
A letter on onion skin is magnificent.
Typed manuscript pages on watermarked bond are exquisite.
A poem transcribed onto parchment or rice paper is magic.
A grocery list on tablet paper will make any trip to the market more exciting.
And breaking-up is always classier via vintage letterhead while ensuring Dear John WILL NEVER forget you.

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.

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.

These typing papers were so much fun. I just loved the nostalgic character of the paper and the letterheads. My son had a great time typing on some of the telegram paper to send out birthday thank you notes. I can’t wait to use them for notes to friends, gift tags or even in my collage art. Thank you for this bit of whimsy in our life!

Shopping with Sam is a treat! I ordered the Fine Typing Papers as a birthday present. Sam quickly responded to my order, asked questions to help personalize the selection of papers, and shipped the package quickly. I can't open the two packets I received but I am intrigued at the glimpses of the personalized papers, envelopes, and other typing goodies enclosed in the glassine envelopes. I can hardly wait to present the present!

If buying an excellent typewriter from Sam wasn't enough, she has extended the customer's experience in the typosphere by adding fine typing papers! I received my collection in a wonderful, handcrafted glassiene envelope, bound securely by red and white twine. I have solid papers, onion skin, and a wonderful selection of other ephemera from the past, like papers from railroads, hotels, Bethlehem Steel and even some from the Alcatraz Rest Home. What a wonderful way to connect with your typewriter! Thank you, Sam!

Finally getting around to leaving a review. One of the things that took me so long is that Sam always packs her products with so much care and attention to presentation that I sometimes hate to disturb that presentation. But I finally decided that I should actually USE the pretty paper instead of just looking at it and caressing it. What is nice about this is it is a lovely sampling of different kinds of old timey typing paper (as well as some other goodies Sam added). I loved testing the different papers on my multiple typewriters (which, by the way, I also purchased from this shop) and I definitely have a few favorites among them, which I will be getting more of.
