Thank God for Flickr – specifically Uppercase’s fantastic collection of vintage typewriter ribbon tins.
Dope find! My fav is the Carter’s Midnight ribbon.
its pretty mind blowing how much fresher design from the 1920’s thru 1960’s can be than modern design…
ive lost hope of simplicity in modern age. these are gems, so sweet.
reminds me, i should get my ass in the antique store soon, i saw a couple in one.
omg i know someone who will ‘wantsies’ these -he’s a dj in dublin who still uses a typewriter – i’m sending him over to drool :)

The “Personality” one is ridiculously awesome. God, just look at the detail in the logotype. Some designer clearly had the chance to go hog-wild!
Any idea of the value of the ‘Personality’ tin?
My sisterinlaw and I have been working on my grandmothers house(she’s been hoarding since the fourty’s) I have fallen in love with these tins. Have only found 3 so far (one wasn’t a typewriter tin but the same size) but we have only tackled the area by her recliner and half her sewing room.
I don’t see the two I have up here the closest one is the Miller Dimond ribbon on I have another one by the same company. all of them are kinda beat up, but their a lost era and this is coming from a kid born in the winter of 89′.
wow thats awesome
