I had no clue...thanks for this info...I'm off to get me some colored ribbon for my little Hermes Rocket. Yay!


Good to gear where you can get ribbons. I have a couple of machines but I've always thought it'd be impossible to get ribbons for them because they're from the 60s. It sounds like there might've been a standard size by then (2") so I'll measure mine and hopefully start using them! I had a word processor from 1985 at the end of high school(Class of '00) and experimented a little with the typewriter but found it too physical for long sessions. But one of my first memories is of typing sentences from kids books when I was 6 or 7 on it, so I'd love to have it running again, especially since I donated the word processor to the Ransom Center. Thanks Donovan!
