Typewriters! I recognise that not all of you will have access to a manual typewriter. You don’t need one in order to create amazing zines, but they have definitely become a popularised tool of low-fi zines makers.
I have had the enormous luck of being gifted one from a friend that struck lucky at a tip shop, a family member also found one on a construction site mid-demolition (?!) and I have had the privilege of purchasing a couple and even gifting a few over the years too.
My first typewriter, salvaged from a tip shop and gifted to me ❤
Some of you may not even enjoy the rickety staccato aesthetic of typing on a manual typewriter? – but if you do, then I have universal typewriter ribbon spools for you!
They are Black/Red split which is cool for those angry backspaced ‘X’s or fancy headings, or if your project calls for red type just cos, ya know?
I’m selling them for $5AU +postage. If your ribbon is fading or faded and you’d like a new spool or two shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will work out postage costs for you.
Zine on however you zine zinesters x
