How do you know what size ribbon a typewriter needs? (Brother, Royal, etc. typewriters)?

I have old typewriters and some electric ones and they are out of ribbon/ribbon dried out so how do i know which size spool/ribbon to order online? Please let me know! Thanks

P.S. there's a universal typewriter ribbon on amazon but I didnt know if that would work with my typewriters because it seems to good to be true

It's not the ribbon you need to worry about, it's the spools or carrier. If your typewriter has spools, take them out and examine them to see if the identifying information you need is embossed on them somewhere. If it has a carrier, take it out and look for the identifying information, which might be etched on or on a sticker.

The Underwood ribbons at Amazon will probably fit most Underwoods that have similar spools. If you have an Underwood typewriter, compare the spool with the photo on the web site. The Smith-Corona ribbons fall into two categories, and you'd need to know the model of your SCM (Smith Corona Marchant) machine to know which category of ribbon you need. Other ribbons should be ordered to fit a particular manufacturer's machines. The plastic cartridges for electronic machines are specific to the machine, and you'd need to know the model of machine you have. Generally that information is on the machine or printed on a sticker that's inside the machine. Often there's a serial number, which might be an identifying clue, under the platen on one side or the other that can be seen if you move the platen all the way to the left or right and look below it in the track. Most supply companies provide a phone number you can call for help in identifying the right ribbon to order for your machine.

Usually the ribbons are 1/2" wide and are wound on a 2" spool that fits onto a spindle and into grooves. If you order spools that don't fit your typewriter, you probably can rewind the ribbon onto the spools you do have (with the dried-up ribbon on them).
