While the scope of the typewriter’s use contracted, it remains a vital part of our everyday work lives. We rely on it for typing file labels, addressing envelopes, and completing the odd form that is not available online. When our trusty old typewriter froze, never to move again, we were in a quandary – Do Typewriter Repair Technicians still exist? How do you find one? Do they still make typewriters?

We weren’t able to find a Typewriter Repair Technician – perhaps they’ve gone the way of the Maytag Repairman – but were relieved to find typewriters still for sale. Here is our newest purchase, able to do all the things we need it to do.

Here it is, in its new home. Welcome.
