Delighted with the arrival of the Olympia SM9 typewriter earlier today, such speedy delivery!
Packaging was excellent, and as typewriter was revealed it took me back very much to my younger years as a school secretary, which was my first job reliant on lots of typewriter usage.
Been sat typing and absolutely loved it.. so pleased with the quality and high maintenance standard.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. As I was unpacking the typewriter and got to see the case I was amazed at how 'modern' it was! When I was able to get it out of the packaging and look at it I had tears. I just couldn't believe that it was the age it was!. To me it looked as if it had just come off the production line! The lady who does my blood test used to type and when she saw it she said to me "Are you sure it's 1970's?".
The nicest manual I have ever used. I was at a newly built secondary school from 2nd year on and the commerce room was incredible. We had Imperial 70's.Underwood, Royal. Olivetti and Olympia's all brand new! One Adler electric, which I stupidly did my Pitman's typing intermediate and failed!! I got a distinction when I used a manual! So yes this portable is a lovely typewriter and I haven't Google screaming at me to do it their way!! I can type as fast as I can think, but no longer on computers. I longed for a typewriter, I am so very grateful.

Dear Messrs Blackman,
I wanted to write to thank you so very much for the beautiful Imperial 220 which arrived safely today. I have already written three letters with it and am completely enamoured! I have no doubt it will prove to be a wonderful companion (not that my husband isn't also great, ha ha), particularly as we see through this awful pandemic. I will certainly recommend your outstanding shop to the typewriter enthusiasts in my life.
With all good wishes,

I'm just emailing to confirm the safe arrival of the 1960's Impex Maria portable, which we are delighted with.
Many thanks for taking such good care with the packaging. As it's for our daughter's 18th birthday in July, we haven't used it yet but are really looking forward to trying it out!
Many thanks again,

Good morning to you all,
I'm rather late sending this email but I wanted to say thank you for fixing up my old Remington Noiseless portable, it's really very much appreciated.
To find people who work on vintage equipment is a blessing. I hope that you are fulfilled by it as well as enjoying a successful business.
With my very best wishes,
Just to let you know the Imperial Good Companion typewriter arrived safely at lunchtime. It is beautiful, thank you.
