About Us

Ribbons, who uses ribbons?

You would be surprised, ribbons are used daily.  From adding machines, to bank printers, to cash registers & receipt printers, to forms printers, to parking garages, timeclocks, check printers and yes typewriters too. We carry supplies for machines from yesterday and today. It's not just ribbons; it's ink rollers, toners, spools, tapes, rolls and cartridges.  You can even send us your old ribbon spools and we will install a new ribbon on them!

Who we are? 
A small family business in Maryland that started back in 1990.  Its very important to us to help you, our customer, quickly and efficiently.  Our desks are literally in the center of our entire inventory, which allows us to go to a shelf and quickly get the item, look at it, hold it in our hands!  We stock hundreds of different ribbons.

Who are our customers?
Our customer is your family, office, school, church, restaurant, gas station, hospital.  It's everybody and we would love for you to be our customer.

I only need a ribbon or 2, would you sell to me?
Absolutely, many customers purchase 1 ribbon at a time.

How far do you ship?
We shipped as far as Australia and to many countries around the world.

Who is your oldest customer?
She is 98 and types regularly without eyeglasses!  Her handwriting is poor and it's difficult for her to write.

Longest customer relationship?
A Honda dealership that began with us in 1994.  We provide all of their toner, ribbons and even ink for their postage machine.

Strangest item sold?
A ribbon for a 1920's train ticket printer. A train enthusiast, was looking for a 1 1/4" cotton ribbon.
We had a customer call us for blue cover up tabs, apparently the blue shows up on game pieces that you customize yourself.  We have white, blue and pink cover up tabs in stock!

Special Project?
A project manager at 3M needed a specific size 2ply carbonless paper roll. With the specs given we had a paper roll made for them.

How to contact us?
Call 1.800.250.7426, e-mail me personally at , or complete the product request form on our website.

Do you wholesale?
Yes, for many local and national office supply stores.  Many places don't carry ribbons anymore, or have any kind of information about the ribbon, or they only need a few.  We have an extensive cross reference system, so we can determine the correct ribbon by the machine model, part number, description, or picture of the cartridge or spool.

Many thanks for visiting our company and please feel free to call me anytime!
