Just the Ribbon - Replacement Ribbons for Typewriters & Adding MachinesNowhere can you buy just the ribbon. Cut to the length you need and wound onto a generic spool! For the typewriter collector or the MacGyver in you. Here is your chance to recycle, be a hero and replace your worn ribbon with a fresh ribbon, with eyelets installed into the ribbon. Just take the old ribbon off, attach the new ribbon and now you took something worthless and converted it into a brand new ribbon. With color and material choices, you can unleash your inner creativity and run with it! Not to mention your sense of pride and a little ink on your fingers to show the world that you can do anything you put your mind to!
