...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
Thanks, I was wondering how things were going with Type-O-Matic. Sure is an odd way to send a love letter ...
Well, you Americans have strange customs :-) It was of an apology/love letter combination.
Good to hear Type-O-Matic is still at work.
I think this is a wonderful service you offer, and I am glad that people are making use of it!I recently used my Olympia SM9 for typing out the 'thank you' cards for our recent wedding, along with typing all of the envelopes for Leila's resumes. I must say, it does take a while when you realize that you CANNOT make a mistake. I only had about fifty 'thank you' cards to type up, but it took over two hours, and at the end of it I did not even feel up to typing the envelopes. Those were, unfortunately, handwritten. Great to hear that people still see the value of a typewritten letter!
I'll chime-in... what a service. It's so quirky and interesting, I could imagine it as a movie. Title: Type-O-Matic. ( :
Oddly, I found a ton of people offering this service at fiverr.com. I was a bit astonished when I looked for typewriter related services and found a ton of people offering this...
Hi Deek, I could only find one similar (100 words max) and fixed price did not include postage "anywhere in the world". Loads of people will type for cash - very few will do it on a manual typewriter and actually post the hard copy. The devil's in the detail. Plus, Type-O-Matic is guaranteed 100% confidential. Hope you are well.
Great idea - you could try advertising at wedding fairs as typewritten is the new thing for US weddings (according to Pinterest). But a ton of orders would take the fun out of it I suppose.
