Last time, I wrote about one essential typewriter accessory, the typewriter pad. In this blog post, I thought I'd write about another recommended typewriter accessory: colored typewriter ribbons!
Traditionally, typewriters have used solid black ribbons or half red/half black ribbons. Those are the two most common typewriter ribbons available for purchase today. Those are the ones I sell in my shop on kytyper.com.
However, it's great fun to add a splash of color to your typewritten notes, poems, and letters. A green typewriter ribbon is perfect for the holiday season that is just a few weeks away! Have fun with it.
We're also fortunate enough that colored typewriter ribbons are fairly easy to come by. Recently, I purchased FJA's 7 pack colored ribbon pack a few weeks ago. It's great fun! I would like to have had a brown ribbon too - brown print would look fantastic on off-white paper. Order yourself a color ribbon or two and have fun. They can be found on eBay.
