    That’s an interesting variation on the Deluxe case. I have a H3K that also has a nicely stitched deluse case, but the upper stretch of leather is white.

    Hang on…… This Sydney location looks familiar. I think I have a machine that also has a sticker from the same company.

    …… and how have I not seen this blog before?

    A very nice Hermes! The script is great! That is really neat that it has a service sticker and the receipt. Finding history with a typewriter is always nice.

    Also, that is strange that the post would charge more for colored letters. I can understand their reasoning, I guess, but I have never even heard of this being a problem. Strange…

      hello ken, thank you. yup, always looking for that little trail of story behind the tappy.
      the post office says it’s the same postage if it’s overseas but i suspect they too will take a longer time to reach addressee, and need manual sorting. what can i say i love cute printed envelopes. now, i just put them into a bigger white envelope! haha.

    The company is no longer there… No.

    And I just checked the label on my Hermes 3000, and it is indeed from the same seller. Although the sticker on mine is quite different.

    I’ve been thinking of buying a typewriter for my BF as this year’s Christmas present! I never knew typewriter come in cursive! How much did this Hermes cost? Where can I get typewriters in Singapore? 🙂

    Can I ask you some things regarding typewriters over email? 🙂 I would mean a lot to me! Thank you!
