Comments

Joan Clarke

Is the typewriter ink permanent or does it have to be sealed/set in some way? This is a very clever idea.

Donovan Beeson

Well, I havent doused it in water, but it doesnt rub off on my fingertips either. I would just treat it nicely.

Marissa

I have a hat from Giant Dwarf with a typed ribbon tag, it's been laundered several times and the ink is still there! I have recently been wondering about typing letters on fabric, will have to give it a try.

Brendan Leber

Curse you and your spiffy ideas! Now I need to get a typewriter!

Just kidding, this looks awesome and I wanted a typewriter. Now I have a "reason" to pay for one.
