Typewriter Ribbons

If you are not sure which ribbon you require, then please find below some pointers and tips which may help:

We offer a classic ribbon range in plain black and in red/black which comes on 3 different plastic spool types, including Group 1, Group 4 and Group 9. See below for which Group suits which brand of typewriter. In addition we also offer a colourful ribbon range which comes on a "Universal" plastic spool which will work with most brands of manual typewriters. For older machines that have metal spools, it is easy to wind a new ribbon onto those spools. You can purchase any of the ribbons below, take it off the plastic spools it comes on and just use the new ribbon only. If you need more information or seek guidance, you can always drop us an email at julie@charliefoxtrotvintage.co.uk for assistance.
