1970s IBM Selectric III

The true precursor to the personal computer, the IBM Selectric III is an iconic machine that marked the end of the typewriter era. The immensity of this machine is matched by its functionality: with every ‘ball’ is a different typeface, and this unit comes with five. 

We went for Matte Ruby Red, which is 95% similar to the original finish of other Selectrics, which is more chic than the usual black or brown. If the color inspires you to write, this is really for you.

We’ve had a few artist comers who create beautiful scrapbooks with their typewriters, this would be the ultimate tool for them, since they would have many typeface options with just one typewriter.

Lifetime Service Warranty

Every typewriter is covered with a Lifetime Service Warranty for factory defects.

Each of our units is thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and refinished during refurbishing. Only models with excellent build quality leave our workshop, since these have already proven their durability over the decades.

In our experience, under responsible ownership, refurbished typewriters only need slight lubrication every few months and ribbon changing.

For any possible adjustments, you may schedule an appointment in our workshop for free.

Free Delivery

We deliver for free in Metro Manila. We ship through Lalamove. The unit is packed in one to two layers of bubble wrap depending on the sensitivity of the unit, such as if it does or does not have a case. 

Nationwide delivery is P490 extra, due to the bulk and weight of the units. We use APCargo for Visayas and Mindanao and JRS Express for Luzon shipping. The units are wrapped in up to five layers of bubble wrap to ensure safety. Since using this method, all of our units have arrived in the same condition they were sent with.

Ink Ribbon Supply

Two ribbons will come free with your typewriter. Each ribbon can type 20-40 pages, depending on the size of your typewriter's typeface and the density of your writing.

Each ribbon costs P30 and we sell exclusively to our typewriter buyers.
