Where to Buy Typewriter Ribbons for Manual Typewriters and the IBM Selectric


One of the most frequent questions I receive is "Can you still buy typewriter ribbon"? The answer is "Yes!".  We're very fortunate that typewriter ribbons continue to be manufactured and sold.  One can buy ribbons for most typewriters, everything from the Selectric I typewriter to vintage manual typewriters of all kinds.

The next question often is, "Where can I buy a typewriter ribbon?".  I'm happy to report there are several good businesses that can ship a typewriter ribbon right to your door.  Let me name a few that I've had good experiences with.

Baco Ribbon.  This is my go-to vendor for typewriter ribbons that I use and resell.  The customer service is outstanding and the ribbons are great.  Baco ribbons are still made by hand on equipment that dates back to the founding of the company itself.  Call Charlene at 314-835-9300 to order your typewriter ribbons.

FJA Products.  FJA Products sells typewriter ribbons on Amazon.com.  This was the first vendor I tried when I started collecting and repairing typewriters.  I found their ribbons to be good but a bit on the wet side.  If you like a wet ribbon, you'll love these.  They also offer typewriter ribbons in various colors!   Search for them on Amazon.com or visit their website for more information.  http://fjaproducts.com
