@MsGolightly:I didn’t do this, but I’ve seen it done! As long as you have a fresh ink roll (you can buy them cheap) it woudl work out great. I love my great-grandfather’s but it sort of sticks. Maybe I could see if there’s a typewriter “specialist” that could bring it back to life. If I can get it to work, I would definitely do this! 

ETA: This is my inspiration. http://sweetvioletbride.com/2012/04/pigeon-hill-wedding-north-photography/

@MsGolightly:  I did read a recap once where the bride siad it didn’t turn out as well as they had hoped.

Most people are used to keyboarding where you can backspace, edit, correct, spellcheck etc. You can’t do that on a typewriter so it was a bit of a mess.
