Vintage Typewriter Testimonials

Royal Pink Typewriter

"I'm in love with typewriters, but I might just be a little bias. I'm a journalist and a writer at heart and since vintage typewriters are by far my favorite, I did a thorough search and was lucky enough to find "Karl Business Machines."

From day one, Rick was available and very helpful. Actually, I could immediately tell he was extremely knowledgeable about vintage typewriters. Rick not only gave me options, but recommended what was best and won me over with his honesty.

Initially, I was looking into a 1920s true vintage beauty, an expensive machine, but worth the price for sure. When I explained to him my intentions of use, without hesitation Rick suggested a different model. He could have just gone along with the initial sale, it meant more money anyway. However, his honesty speaks volumes about his character, one that would love to see followed by more businesses. Also, through the process of getting my beloved Royal Quiet De Luxe, Rick kept in constant communication and updated me from day one with an array of pictures. From the time he got the typewriter, to when it was sand blasted, and finally till it was finished. I just recently celebrated my birthday, and got the perfect gift to enjoy such a special day. Without a doubt Rick's work is outstanding and flawless. No wonder why little by little his vintage machines are making their way into Hollywood's films! Will finally add that my 1940s Quiet De Luxe beauty is quite the "eye candy" and envy of those who get to see it...it truly is a lot more beautiful in person than the image you see. I would say it's a masterpiece of a true artist, who with his work gives joy to those of us who dream of a vintage era."

"Rick and the entire Karl Business Machines staff were extremely professional and accommodating in helping our company secure several typewriters for our Super Bowl event. At any time of the day Rick was available to answer every beck and call that we may had. Without hesitation he would call us to make sure we received emails or pictures of the product and ensured that we were satisfied with our purchase. Karl Business Machines guaranteed a speedy and efficient turnaround time all the way from placing the order to delivering it to our doorstep which did not disappoint.  If I am ever in need of another typewriter I would without a doubt choose Karl Business Machines again"

Royal Pink Typewriter in a Classical Setting

To the lovely team at Karl Business Machines,

And just like that. This vintage gem made its way into my heart! I want to thank my family for this beautiful and exquisite gift. It’s this once in a life time gift that leaves your soul feeling nostalgic and yearning for your younger days.

But this would not have happened without the support and incredible service from the team at Karl Business Machines. I had done quite a bit of research on these beauties and was desperate to have one for my own.

So one Sunday evening, I made the call from Australia to America. I spoke to the lovely Roberta who put my mind at ease. I was incredibly humbled by her honesty, professionalism and support. Roberta displayed a genuine interest in helping me out and  began the process of organising the typewriter to be sent my way. Then Rick made contact with me and he was incredibly accommodating and just went out of his way to do the little things that make all the difference!

It was just the smoothest process. It began by Rick and Roberta making sure that the typewriter and the case were in absolute mint condition, then they had a consultation with the postal service to ensure quick, efficient and safe delivery of the item. The team then sent the typewriter on its way. It was wrapped like a baby. The typewriter was tracked and I was given updated information on its status.

They promised me that I would have it in a week and sure enough on the Wednesday, it was signed for!

It literally took my breathe away. In that instant it felt like my childhood dreams were madly racing around in my head and I just teared up!

To the team at Karl Business Machines, thank you for making this moment happen. I appreciate your absolutely amazing service and even your follow up email was just sweet.

If only everyone displayed your level of integrity and pride for what they do…

I feel blessed that our paths have crossed and I hope goodness comes your way.

Thank you,
Eman, Australia

Girl and Typewriter

What a gift you've given us. There is not a single Christmas past or future that will bring something so special and cherished as this beloved pink typewriter. It is like nothing I've seen; beautiful enough to be on display shelf and yet smart enough to still be functional. My daughter inherited her love for words from her mother. Unfortunately, I flex my writing muscle mostly through work emails these days, but I know that my sweet girl can grow to follow the little light inside her that appreciates all of our yesterdays, the way things used to be and put her wealth of words to paper...not only with pen but with this magical piece of history that you've brought back to life! Thank you for being with me every step of the way and reminding me of the mighty spiritedness found in an expertly lead family-owned business! We will cherish this always.

Much love and honor,

Vintage Type Writer Testimonial

My daughter has aspired to be a writer her entire life.  When she was a little girl she saw an aqua Royal typewriter that she fell in love with.  She has always said that she was going to buy that typewriter when she receives her first pay check as a writer. Well, we beat her to it :) Our daughter will be going to University in September to study Journalism, and as a graduation gift we surprised  her with the typewriter of her dreams.

I spent much time researching and trying to locate an aqua Royal typewriter.  I am so happy that I contacted Rick at Karl’s Business Machines.  From day one, Rick has been extremely helpful in providing me with information and ensuring that I was able to get the typewriter that I was looking for.  Rick kept me informed of the progress of my order, and  he even contacted me the day that it was delivered.  Rick also went as far to follow up with me after my daughter’s graduation to see how the surprise went over.

The typewriter is BEAUTIFUL!  It is fully restored to it’s original majesty and it is in complete working order.

 I highly recommend Karl’s Business Machines to anyone who is looking for a vintage typewriter.

The products that Karl’s offer are of excellent quality and the customer service is second to none!

Christmas Typewriter
                        A Magical Christams Wish come True

When we visited Santa this year my 9 year old asked him for a quite unusual gift, a typewriter. I wasn’t sure how Santa was going to pull this off as I was quite sure his elves were not busy making them for Christmas. Santa luckily found Rick at Karl Business Machines and not only did he fulfill her wish with an excellent working vintage 1960s Olympia typewriter but it was a beautiful shade of pale pink! My daughter’s face lit up as she opened her gorgeous fully restored to like new typewriter. She has been busy since writing stories and letters to her teacher, friends and even Santa himself. And Mom is quite happy she has a beautiful classic typewriter as well as a special memory of Christmas to pass down one day to her children. Thank you, Rick for making my daughter’s magical Christmas wish come true!

Vintage Typewriter for my granddaughter

All began this summer when I started looking for a Vintage Typewriter for my granddaughter who turns 10 on October 1.
I searched and found "Karl Business Machines " website. I was very impressed with the typewriters colors, the restoration quality
and the testimonials.

I decided to send an email explaining the nature of my purchase and was very surprised by the fast response I get.
Rick called me by phone and guide me through the purchase process, explaining the differences between the Olympia, Royal and other machines.
I decided for an Olympia SM3 Royal PInk with sparkles and black key tops (A beauty).
Talking to Rick was very nice and I always felt that he loves what he does, taking very seriously and will be willing to give an extra mile to satisfy their customer's needs
and expectations.

And I do not get disappointed, the typewriter was delivered on time (Oct 1).
Rick kept me informed during the shipping process and to assure package delivered on time sent the machine by air and do not charge me for the difference.

When my granddaughter received the typewriter she was speechless with overwhelming emotion.
My aspiring writer has now the means to express her vivid imagination and talent and create her own stories.
And who knows one day ..... she became a writer .....

Thanks, Rick to help others pursue their dreams !!!!

Wedding Bride

My name is Wendy and I am a calligrapher from Hong Kong. Having in love of everything about writings, letters and calligraphy, I have always wanted a cursive typewriter so that I can type something cute for my pen friends when I do snail mails.

And dream come true! A group of my friends bought me this beautiful pink typewriter for my studio opening and I love it!

Thank you for restoring these beautiful machines!

Typewriter with Book

I’ve been where you are now: skimming the reviews for Karl Business Machines, reading the testimonials on their web site, and perhaps entertaining the notion of contacting this small business. You might even wonder if all the glowing reviews are legit; one can scarcely find any negative comments or feedback concerning Rick and his team of experts. As it turns out, there is a reason (several reasons, actually) Karl Business Machines has a chorus of praise from its’ patrons.

 For starters, you will not find a better typewriter shop anywhere in the region, possibly in the world. Everything you’ve heard about Rick’s legendary customer service, professionalism, and the quality of their work is real. It is a pleasure and an honor to join others in expressing appreciation and gratitude for Karl Business Machines in the hopes of promoting this exceptional company.

 I’ve owned more than a dozen manual typewriters in my lifetime. Some were inherited, others I’ve purchased secondhand in various states of neglect or disrepair. I’ve bought enough machines that I’m confident I can differentiate between a typewriter that merely “looks good” and one that is, in fact, good: a reliable tool you can sit down with and pour page after page of scrivenings into, seamlessly and smoothly, without issue.

Pink Typewriter & Chow Gang

Testimonial for Rick

Once in a while you meet a person who takes you into their everyday world enough to give you a glimpse into the extraordinary. Rick is that kind of person. I was looking for a vintage typewriter to inspire my writing. Little did I know, on the other side of the country was a man bringing magic and life to vintage typewriters he immaculately restores and infuses with dazzling colors straight from candy land. I was enchanted.

Rick helped me decide on a model that would fit my needs as well as add a 40's flare to my circa 1949 mountain cottage. The hardest part was choosing one of the many gorgeous colors.

When my custom typewriter finally arrived, I was delighted when opening the box. Even the way it was so carefully packed revealed the love and attention to detail Rick puts into his work.

There is something about typing that brings a romance to the present from the days long ago. With the sound of each key striking the ribbon and the high-pitched ring of the bell at the end of each line, I am connected at once to every author before me who used a manual typewriter to tell their stories. I love everything about it. At last my book will get the "royal" treatment it deserves.

Thank you, Rick, for my beautiful pink Royal Quiet Deluxe and making the process from start to finish so enjoyable.

Black Typewriter Copy 02 I absolutely love my “new” typewriter. The clients and other attorneys think it is the coolest thing! Carl did an outstanding job and worked hard to get everything done in a timely and professional manner despite the COVID-19 pandemic. I am going to enjoy my typewriter for years to come and have a piece of history to pass to the next generation. I highly recommend everyone see Carl about about any typewriter restoration needs.”


As long I can remember, I have desperately wanted a typewriter. I love writing and will be attending college for Journalism. When I initially asked my parents about getting me a typewriter for Christmas, I thought it was a long shot. However, it was possible for me to get this beautiful, vintage typewriter due to Karl Business Machines and much easier than my parents had expected. My parents enjoyed working with Rick, and absolutely loved the result. They were so excited to give me this newly restored typewriter at Christmas, and when I opened it, I cried tears of joy! I absolutely love my typewriter as well, and I hope to potentially purchase another one someday from Karl Business Machines.

Purple Typewriter

I received my purple Royal Quiet DeLuxe three months ago. It arrived just in time to begin a new book manuscript, wich I completed the day I took this picture! What a delight this machine is to use.

This is my second 1940s Royal Quiet DeLuxe - my first was a pawnshop find that I restored myself. I like my first QDL very much, but it has some issues, the biggest of wich is that it just can't keep up with me when I type fast. When I ordered the purple QDL I explained that I'm a writer and that I intended to put it to extended use. Rick found me an example that appeared to have been used remarkably little - the rubber feet and platen are still soft! From the first line I typed to the end of my 200,000-word manuscript, it never once failed to keep pace with me, even during bursts of productivity when I typed upwards of 100 words per minute. Mechanically, the machine exceeds my expectations - truly, and by a long shot. And the custom paint is simply gorgeous.

In terms of customer service, the process of ordering the maschine was a joy. Both Rick and Roberta were exceptionally helpful and patient as I grappled with choosing a color. Though each phone call and email, their demeanor suggested a team who genuinely enjoy their work amd aim to ensure that their clients are 100 % satisfied.

Thanks again, Rick and Roberta. I'm looking forward to having this machine as  a companion for the rest of my life!

Deluxe Pink

Sorry that it has taken me so long to start to write this review. This Royal Quiet DeLuxe Pink is my first birthday gift from lovely boyfriend Louis. It was a big surprise, I was in the office having my morning cofee when this huge parcel arrived. I nearly screamed out when I opened the parcel. Thanks to Rick, it was well wrap[ed and took me a long to get it out.

Funny enough, I don't write a lot, especially in English, haha, but I have always wanted to have my own typewriter. And now my dream come true. I must say this is a love from first sight. I love my Vintage Royal Quiet DeLuxe typewriter, the color , and the texture. Thanks for all the time and effor that has put into this typewriter. I will love it and share my happyness with it to many others and more

Vintage Typewriter

I’ve been fascinated with the idea of using a typewriter for some time now. I used to do a fair amount of writing in college and shortly thereafter, but as life got busier with a new career, wife, child, etc. it’s become increasingly difficult to focus on my writing. Often when I do have a chance to sit down and type out some ideas, I find myself sitting at my computer which quickly goes from typing to checking notifications that pop up, to idly zoning out online. Since receiving this typewriter, however, I’ve managed to sit down and type distraction free for 30 min to an hour each night. There’s truly something to be said to having a machine that is dedicated simply to one thing and one thing only and that is imprinting your thoughts neatly into a sheet of paper.

As for the typewriter itself, it is spectacular! I mean, it’s gorgeous! It’s sleek! It’s sexy! It’s honestly as if Rick has some sort of time machine back at his shop and he’s able to dial back to whatever year he needs, in my case, 1959 and snag a machine off the manufacturer’s shelf. This Olympia SM4 looks and feels as if I am the first person to have ever placed my fingers on its keys. And as for my experience with Rick and his shop, I can’t say enough about how truly wonderful my experience was with him. First, I e-mailed Rick out of the blue asking him a bunch of questions about typewriter ownership in general. Having never owned a typewriter before, I had some questions I wanted answered before I committed to purchasing one of these beauties. Rick responded immediately and thoroughly to each of my questions and furthermore, he corresponded with me for over a week as I tried to decide on exactly what I wanted. Then, when I was finally ready to pull the trigger he had the thing packed up and sent my way the very next day. The story of Rick’s superior customer service does not stop there though, upon receiving the machine, I had a couple of questions (being the typewriter rookie that I am) and Rick dropped what he was doing and called me immediately to walk me through my new machine. It’s incredibly clear that he has a passion for these machines and he seems to truly enjoy putting a smile on strangers faces by sharing this passion with others. I will undoubtedly be a lifelong customer of Karl Business Machines for any future typewriter needs. Thanks again Rick!

Pink Olympia SM4

When I took my new pink Olympia SM4 out of the case and put it on my desk, I was so pleased. The restoration is exquisite. The paint is even and smooth, it is even painted under the ribbon lid. It is immaculately clean, looks brand new, and types wonderfully. The keys are shiny and feel great under my fingers. The new ribbon prints perfect letters on the paper. This typewriter is beautiful in every way.

I want to also say something about Rick. He is very easy to talk to and he is a pleasure to do business with. My phone conversations with Rick made it clear to me that Rick treats every customer with the same interest and respect. You can tell from the way that he talks about typewriters that he truly loves them. After receiving my typewriter, I could see that he pays great attention to detail and wants the typewriter to be its very best.
Buying this typewriter was a great experience. Thank you so much Rick.

Wedding Typewriter

One of a parents hopes is to give their child the wedding they have always dreamed of.

Our son Jason and his bride Octavia wanted a vintage style wedding. With a typewriter to be displayed at the reception venue.

With today's technology, I didn't even know where to begin to look for one.

As I began my search I came across Karl Business Machines. From our first contact with Rick, he was so very helpful. He took the time with us to select the perfect typewriter. He said we could  pick one within the style and have it painted to the color theme of the wedding, He went over and above to help us in every way. The craftsmanship, quality and beauty of the typewriter was far more beautiful then we could have ever imagined.

Karl Business Machine suggested to have the typewriter be a part of the wedding. By having our guests type wishes and blessings to the bride and groom.

Our guest were not only impressed at how beautiful it looked, they couldn't get over how perfectly the color matched. With the age of the vintage typewriter, it was amazing as to how easy it was to operate. It was such a big hit, we were surprised at how many guests typed messages.

Karl Business Machines helped us to make our son and daughter in law's fairy tale wedding come true.

We thank you Rick for being a part of there special day.

Diana and Fred parents of the groom.

Bride Typing on Pink Typewriter at Wedding Reception

Someone's wedding is a beautiful memory that will carry them through their lifetime together.

Karl Business Machines not only made a typewriter for me that fits the color theme of our wedding, but my personality as well. They took the time to listen to me about the wedding, and were so in touch they also found away to add my personality and likes to the typewriter.

At the wedding reception our guests were able to type coments and wishes to us. Now we can also have the blessing of our friends and family in writing to cherish and add to the wonderful memory of our special day.

Wedding Couple

My husband Alec and I rented a purple typewriter for our Great Gabsty themed wedding. From the very start, Rick and his staff were fantastic and showed us what great customer service truly is! They were very accomodating and helpful. They printed out customized paper with our names on it for our guest to use. They thoroughly showed us how to use the typewriter and he packed it perfectly for us to travel with! After realizing the complexities of a typewriter, Rick even came to our wedding to help our guests use the typewriter! With Rick's presences, we received way more typed messages than we even thought we would and all our guest praised this little touch to our wedding. Every single step of the way he helped us in any way he could. Good customer service is very hard to find nowadays. Rick and his staff went above and beyond great customer service! We wish every single business we deal with were like the team at Karl's Business Machines. If I ever need or want to refer someone to get a typewriter it will be with Rick! They do an awesome job!

Thanks again, and thank you for being a part of our special day!

Can never thank you enough for the job you performed on my antique underwood typewriter. It was a HUGE success at my daughters wedding. Your professionalism / craftsmanship and extreme friendly manner not to mention turning the typewriter into a centerpiece, AND you made me feel like I was as important a client as Tom Hanks was deeply appreciated. Please let me know if there is any other way to let others out there know how great you are. Thank you again, father-of-the -bride.

Pink Royal Quiet Deluxe Typewriter

For the past few years, I had a 'pink royal quiet deluxe typewriter' on my wish list - but I could never find one in the pristine condition (looks and function) that I wanted.
My wish was to open the box and begin typing as though it had been received brand new in the year it was originally manufactured.

Last week, my wish came true!!! I found Karl Business Machines on the web and saw just the beauty I'd been hoping for - offered by a company that had been in business for some time.....specializing in typewriters and restoring old typewriters to 'like new' condition with beautiful, professional paint jobs.I called from my home in Texas and Roberta answered the phone.

She patiently answered all my questions and really made me feel like she was happy that I had found them because she knew they offered the quality I was looking for. I placed the order (as a gift from my husband) and a few days later I excitedly unwrapped the very carefully secured pink beauty. I took it out of the box, set it on my desk, and started typing! It's everything I had hoped for!

Thank you so much!

I've wanted a yellow type-writer for as long as I can remember. When I came across the website for Karl's Business Machines I was so excited to see that I could order the Royal Quiet Deluxe I always wanted and even have it custom painted to my colour of choice. Since I live in Vancouver Canada , I was a little apprehensive about placing an order with a company that I was not familiar with and that was on the opposite side of the continent {new Jersey}, but through multiple phone and email conversations, Rick from Karl Business Machines was so incredibly friendly, informative, and professional in helping me to get my dream typewriter exactly as I had intended. my typewriter arrived in perfect condition, and I've already  typed out a few thank-you notes to friends. On the day to day, when not in use, my awesome yellow typewriter is displayed on a vintage shelving unit that was my grandparents, in my living room, with some of my other vintage goodies [ radio, sewing machines]. Thank you Karl's Business Machines!!

I received the typewriter last night. It's pristine and beautifull. It feels like Olympia sent me a package from the 50s through a time warp. Everything looks and feels brand new. I can't believe how well the machine has beed restored.

I've been writing non-stop on the machine since receiving it. The keys are responsive and springy; the typing is precise and fluid. The carriage glides like a figure skater on polished ice. I have two other machines. Everything about the machine feels well-engineered and reliable. I'm very happy with my purchase.

When my daughter first started taking about wanting a typewriter I thought she was crazy. Then I thought where in the world could you buy a typewriter nowadays? However a quick  search on Google brought me to Karl Business Machines, just a short ride from my home. After a phone call with Roberta, I brought my daughter in to see and try out the machines. She was very happy with the choices and we ordered a Royal Heritage in black.

The typewriter turned out beautiful. My daughter is thrilled with it. Roberta and Rick were wonderful to work with. They both were so, kind, and thoughtful, and obviously love what they are doing. They provide superior service, with a friendly attitude. I look forward to visiting their shop again.

"I recently bought a vintage Royal typewriter from Karl. I named her Flo and she is beautiful and completely restored. Vintage....but new. The finish is amazing; a 1950's teal and she sparkles. I am an artist and have my own card line. I create art on this typewriter, but Flo also comes to trade shows and classes that I teach.. She is a part of my studio and my business.

I am so happy I bought her"

Red and Black Typewriter

"Could not be more pleased with my Royal Quiet Deluxe typewriter from Karl Business Machines. The beautiful red and black typewriter was extremely high quality, worked perfectly out of the box and have had no issues since. It is my first typewriter and I am so pleased with it. I could not imagine having a better or more impressive looking typewriter. The quality of the machinery is top notch. It feels like a brand new typewriter.

My mother bought the machine for me as a gift, and she said the customer service made everything so easy. I would highly recommend purchasing a typewriter from Karl Business Machines for yourself or as a gift. I am a writer in my 20's who grew up working on computers and enjoy using a typewriter as a change of pace. There is something relaxing and nostalgic about the feel and sound of a vintage typewriter. I look forward to buying another typewriter someday from Karl Business Machines.

Dearest Rick,
It was such a beautiful sight for this long awaited typewriter in my desired shade of pink to arrive unscathed at my doorstop an hour ago. While undoing those plastic wrappers, I was in awe at how stunning and pretty it was.... It is so perfect and the exact pink I was looking for to match that of a poster I intend to display together with it!  You have been so patient, accommodating and professional in every ways to meet my needs and demands during the past months, always keeping me in the loops and reassuring me of the progress while you go about researching and exploring to find that exact pink to meet my request. I didn't expect you to go through such length but your exceptional and outstanding service has far beyond exceeding my expectations. I am thankful for all that you have done to make my dream of owning my first ever pink typewriter a reality. I don't know how much more to thank you for but nonetheless. Thank you so much...Rick. It has been a great pleasure dealing with you. I will not fail to recommend any other who is as much in love with the typewriter as I do to contact you for further business dealings.

Feeling so thankful ...

I received the typewriter last night. It's pristine and beautifull. It feels like Olympia sent me a package from the 50s through atime warp. Everything looks and feels brand new. I can't beleive how well the machine has been restored.

I've been writing non-stop on the machine since reiving it. The keys are responsive and spingy; the typing is precise and fluid. The carriage glides like a skater on polished ice. I have two other machines. Everything about the machine feels well-engineered and reliable. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Felix, South Korea

As far as the typewriter goes, it was a Christmas present for my stepdaughter so I didn't get a good look at it until she opened it on Christmas morning. (I didn't remove all the packing) The look on her face when she saw it was worth a million dollars!! She loved it. It was perfect gift. After her excitement subsided, I got a good look at it and I was impressed with the condition of it. It was definitely better than my expectations. I expected it to look like a cleaned up, refurbished typewriter. It looked like a new typewriter. Extremely well done job. She loves it and I am very happy with my purchase.

Steve, USA

Thank you so much for my typewriter I have so compliments about it. Came with a instruction manual, communication postage and packaging was outstanding. Seller was friendly and so helpful. May sound cheesy but it's the truth.

Alexia, England

The typewriter is beautiful. It works perfectly and far exceeded my expectations. As this was a Christmas present for my daughter, Rick went out of his way to expedite the shipping. Included was a perfect replica of the original instruction manual. It was packed impeccably and arrived on time. Shiny candy apple red, it works as well as it must have when it was brand new.

Thank you
Jamie, California

WOW...Thank you so much for and incredible service from beginning to end. As you know this was a gift for my daughter who graduated with honors in history. There was no words to describe how thrilled she was to open the typewriter ( which had been packed with a lot of care and attention and arrived in immaculate condition) she really could not believe it was sitting in front of her. I have no doubt once she gets to grips with it she will enjoy many hours creating wonderful stories and I can assure you it will be well looked after and will be in our family for many years to come. If anyone wonders if the shipping and custom cost are justified I can only say that I would have paid double and I am even thinking of buying another one as an ornament for my self:)

So once again thank you and I hope it gives you pleasure knowing what a huge part of our celebration your company thousands of miles away played.

I wish you continued success and this space for a pink one.
Kim, England

This past Christmas, a few days before, my daughter Emily (13) was looking to buy a typewriter. I figured she would find an old used, broken typewriter that would give her trouble. UNTIL we found this one! Rick shipped it immediately to where she received it on Christmas Eve! She couldn't have been happier! She opened the carefully packed box and when she opened it and saw her new refurbished typewriter, she was so excited. Rick has done a terrific job on stripping, and repainting (baking) it. There are no flaws in the paint, it is just perfect and types just like it came from the factory years ago. She keeps it in her room, on display!

Excellent customer service. After my daughter typing on it on Christmas Eve, we had a question about the typewriter so I emailed Rick. He instantly replied and gave his phone number for me to call him (I was worrying I was bothering him on Christmas Eve) , so I did call and Rick was so welcoming and didn't mind at all ! I am impressed and thank you so much!

Thank you Rick, and you have made us a very happy customer and we will spread the word!

Good morning Rick, received today, needless to say I am thrilled. I was tossing between  one in original condition, or a restored one, glad I got the restored one. It is beautiful, and will sit in my collection of things I love it!

Thank you so much for my beautiful custom lime green Royal typewriter! I was very pleased with the beautiful paint job and terrific packaging job to protect the typewriter during transit. I would be very happy to do business again!

We love the typewriter so we'd love to give you a testimonial. Thank you so much for the amazing typewriter I purchased it for my wife for her birthday and she was giddy after opening the package. She loved that it was pink, her favorite color. The paint job itself was perfect. Just like it came from the factory. I can tell that the machine was restored by a company that knows what they're doing. Great quality work!

Thanks again!

"Love, love, love my "new" old typewriter! I learned typing in high school on an old typewriter and have always wanted one for nostalgic reasons. Amazingly, my husband listened to my request while browsing in an antique shop, and purchased one for me here.

It is just lovely! I actually cried when I opened my unexpected gift! It is vintage, yet so new. I couldn't be happier with it.

Thank you for a job well done!
