SOURCE: My Canon QS310 electronic typewriter

If you had posted what Country you are located in, I could have ran a search to locate someone local to you that has this product in stock. I am located in California. I could give you information on compatible ribbons which are available in my area, but they may not be available in yours and that would not solve your problem.

I would suggest that you stick with the ribbon that is made for your typewriter if at all possible? If you are unable to locate stock in your Country, try ordering the ribbons online instead.

The ribbons are available at Office Depot. They sell the product online and have your ribbon in stock. Here is a link to your ribbon on their website:

Here is a link to a website that sells both the generic and brand name ribbon for your typewriter:

I hope this helps? Good luck!

Canon typestar 110

I just got a typestar on ebay, new-still in box. I'd be happy to scan the manual and email it to you if you still need one. This is a pretty old post. But it appears the ribbons have been discontinued. I'm pretty sad, I wanted to actually use this machine lol.

Royal Portable typewriter ribbon

Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!

Typewriter instruction manual

Try these two sites for the manual. The typewriter you are using is very old school, so tracking manuals for them is ab it hard.
