We have two antique typewriters that we are setting up with paper for our guestbook. We want to have a sign with instructions, and maybe an example.. I want the sign to say something along the lines of
Please take a moment to type a note to the Newlyweds We look to you for advice, funny stories, even recipes! Anything goes, and creativity is encouraged.
These were instructions I found online.. and Id like to give SOME instruction, but im not sure how to word it more simply…
ï‚· Flip up the paper guide and place a piece of paper behind the roller.
ï‚· Roll the paper into place.
ï‚· Push the button on the end of the roller to free the paper for minor adjustments.
ï‚· Adjust the paper and press the button again to tighten the roller.
ï‚· Set the line spacing with the lever above the typewriter’s keys or behind the roller.
ï‚· Place your hands on the keys, with your index fingers on the F and J keys and your pinkies on the A and semicolon keys.
ï‚· Type precisely and deliberately until you hear the margin bell (if there is one).
ï‚· Push the carriage return lever from left to right, or press Enter on an electric typewriter, and begin typing again.
ï‚· If you make a mistake, use correction fluid or erase it (if you used erasable paper) and type over the mistake.
