New Typewriter Ribbon

Ocean View Typewriters offers spooless ribbons! Avoid the waste and reuse your spools!


These high-quality nylon Baco ribbons are available in black and black/red. Ribbons are rolled onsite around a sturdy cardboard centre before being wrapped and sealed for freshness. Each ribbon is 10 yards in length and has eyelets installed.


An installation guide is included with each ribbon and can be found below.


Free shipping on portable typewriter dust covers, ribbons, and button pins.

    3. Optional: Wipe spools with lightly dampened paper towel and wipe dry.
    4. Remove new ribbon from packaging.
    5. If your typewriter doesn't need eyelets for automatic ribbon reverse, cut off the visible portion of the ribbon with an eyelet.
    6. Attach exposed end to appropriate spool and wind ribbon onto the spool.
    7. When ribbon is fully wound on first spool, if your typewriter doesn't need eyelets for automatic ribbon reverse, cut off the last portion of the ribbon with an eyelet.
