1959 Royal Futura

A really nice manual typewriter! Great for writers or students. Beautiful dove gray color with red logo plate. The performance is quite nice. Did you notice the gorgeous teal color on the inside of the case?! Suitable for heavy use.

Watch the demo video I've created for you to get the full low-down on this typewriter. A new ribbon is installed for you. New ribbon installed. Uses a universal black/red ribbon. The case is in very good condition.

I've attached a link to a tutorial video as well - it's not this particular typewriter but the same model so it will show you have to operate this typewriter.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, demo video. Always free shipping.

GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU PURCHASE:

  • Every shipment is insured
  • Note that while we take great care in our packaging, there is always a risk in shipping a vintage item.
  • You are purchasing a VINTAGE item. There are inherent risks with vintage products.
  • Free shipping via UPS. Signature is required. We do NOT ship outside the mainland U.S.
  • We professionally SERVICE our typewriters. This means we clean and perform minor repairs. We do not replace parts unless otherwise specified in the description. Our typewriters are not refurbished or restored. Please read this blog post that explains the difference.
  • Shipping sometimes causes things to get shifted and jiggled around. Most of the time, any impact is minor. That being said, we are happy to help you troubleshoot any issues you might have. If there are any concerns, please contact Rob immediately at hello@jotandtittletypewriters.com.
  • We provide a typing demo video for each of our typewriters so you can see how it works before you purchase. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU WATCH THE DEMO VIDEO FIRST! 

OPTIONAL 6-MO WARRANTY

With the warranty option, we will cover any mechanical issues NOT mentioned in the listing or demo video and are a result of regular daily use for 6 months starting from the day our tracking information shows that the typewriter was delivered. We recommend taking out your typewriter immediately and testing it for any issues.

This warranty covers any MECHANICAL/OPERATIONAL issues that occur in the course of normal use. Examples: keys sticking/not operational, carriage no longer works due to a broken drawband or other issue, a space bar stops working, the paper feed rollers no longer pull in the paper, etc. It also covers motor failure on electric typewriters. These are some examples of common issues with typewriters and not an exhaustive list of coverage.

 This warranty does NOT cover damage from misuse, food or drink spills, being dropped, or other accidental damage. Damage such as bent or broken parts is not covered (unless it is as a result of shipping). It also does not cover water damage or anything that arises out of an accident or improper use. Paint or exterior damage is not covered either.

 IMPORTANT! Do NOT attempt to repair the typewriter yourself. Any effort at repair on your part VOIDS THIS WARRANTY! This includes opening the bottom or side panels or accessing the mechanics and making adjustments. Please contact us first, and Rob will guide you as to what to do.

We will always attempt to address issues over the phone or email first. After that, if the problem has not been resolved, we'll give you instructions for returning the typewriter for repair. If there are damages as a direct result of shipping, please notify us immediately.

Jot & Tittle Vintage Typewriters will cover the cost of repairs and return shipping TO YOU. The customer is responsible for the cost of getting the typewriter TO US for repairs. Our shipping address is: Jot & Tittle Vintage Typewriters; 5 Paola Lane; Kimberling City, MO 65686

If the typewriter is unrepairable, we will refund the full amount of the typewriter (less the cost of the warranty or any add-ons purchased). Questions? Please send us a direct message at hello@jotandtittletypewriters.com.
