  1. If the typewriter has a colour selector, then I’d prefer to use a two-tone ribbon. A few of my machines have no colour switch. The Remette and the Groma Kolibri, for example. Black ribbons only for those two. But if I had my way, then a black and red ribbon would be on all of my typewriters.
    Because yep, it looks cool.

  2. Yes I did. Otherwise that selection lever would have been ‘non-functional’, can’t have that 🙂
    And my eldest thinks typing in red is so much better than plain black of course…

  3. Yep I do the same thing, except in cases – like the FP – where the vibrator doesn’t position properly. I have to use the red setting or it cuts off the tops of letters.
