Here are a few contributions to the typosphere's exploration of dealers' labels and decals:

This one is self-explanatory.

This is from my 1929 Underwood portable with Ukrainian keyboard.

And this one is from my 1922 folding Corona -- the first typewriter I bought as a "real" collector, in spring of 1994, when I was on fire with typewriter desire after reading Paul Lippman's American Typewriters: A Collector's Encyclopedia. Amazingly enough, International Typewriter Exchange is still in business.


  1. Fantastic labels. I particularly like the Goodman Office Supply one in Clovis, NM with the four-digit telephone number!

  2. 100K satisfied customers back then and still going? I wonder if they rival Mickey D's now in satisfied customers? :D

    Those are some beautiful labels. I'm glad that you don't remove them in the restoration process.
