It’s funny how a typewriter from 1983 can make you feel like you’re in the space age. Imagine, a typewriter that requires no ink. Well, this is it! I just received this Canon Typestar 5 yesterday and I’m in love. Mind you, this is my third thermal typewriter, with a fourth on the way. The other two both have their issues. This one appears to be flawless, and super clean.
I wonder if I would have the guts to take this to do some public typing? I take my AlphaSmart Neo2 out all the time and I am barely noticed. But the trail of thermal receipt paper might be a bit obvious.
This narrow receipt paper isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The goal, of course, will be to get 8½” fax paper. As you can see, my margin has shifted with the paper.
Alas, I cannot lie. This really truly is love.
