Welcome to Toronto Typewriters!
We're a team of typewriter and vintage communications enthusiasts who are looking to bring back lost forms of communication and inspire others to follow us on our journey.
With modern technology people have so quickly forgotten the beauty and romanticism associated with analog communication and that 'the medium is the message!'
Whether you are looking to purchase, sell, rent, repair, or refurbish your typewriter, Toronto Typewriters is the place for all of your typewriter needs.
Join us, and take back the joy of communication!

Olivetti Valentine (Red)
The Olivetti Valentine is one of the most iconic typewriters to over be produced.
Designed by Ettorree Sottsass in Barcelona Spain, this machine was made and designed to be used and enjoyed by creative people, and not so much as an office tool. This is one of the machines every typewriter collector wants in their collection!
Like most Valentine machines, it has some surface scratches in the ABS plastic shell from taking it out of its case. This is a design flaw on all pre-1970 Valentines.
Aside from being an iconic collectors piece, this machine works very well and can be quite an effective writing tool in the right hands.
Please note: The case is missing one of the rubber tabs and there are a few scratches along the left side of the machine. There is also a few spots of ink that we weren't able to get off, possibly something its new owner can get off. Price is reflective of these cosmetic imperfections.
Royal Quiet Deluxe - Pink!
Just wow! A pink Royal Quiet Deluxe with pink Royal emblem. This thing is so gorgeous and original.
Machine is one of the most sought after Royals around. We have received a ton of request for this machine over the years and are so happy to have one available in time for the holidays.
There are very few if any for sale anywhere in the world.
Machine has been cleaned inside and out, a new red/black ribbon has been installed.
This machine works well. Types well as it should. Comes with the original case in good shape.
Overall condition is very good, there are a few very marks to the paint but that is expected as it is all original.
