As a kid growing up I was crazy about learning how to type. Luckily I had access to a business office and was able to hone my typing skills on the manual typewriter in the office.
Taking business classes all through school I begged for my own typewriter and received the Royal Portable Typewriter for my own use. It was manual of course and used the old-fashioned spool ribbons. This typewriter lasted me well into my early twenties.
When I researched the Royal Laminator I found up for auction on DealDash, imagine my surprise to find the Royal Consumer Information Products Company is the same company that manufactured my old manual typewriter from many years ago. Founded in 1904 in Brooklyn, New York, the Royal Company began production in an old tool shop. The first Royal typewriter was sold in 1906. In 1927, the president of Royal wanted to prove the ruggedness of his products so he purchased a tri-motor airplane and dropped over 200 typewriters in crates with parachutes across the Eastern seaboard. Over 11,000 typewriters were delivered this way and only 10 were damaged! After being owned by several foreign companies Royal Information Products became an American owned company in 2004.
After reading the reviews about the new Royal laminator I found on DealDash I knew this was an item I would find useful and durable. I can use this for personal use and at the office for small laminating chores that can be done quickly and economically.
I am delighted with the new Royal Laminator I received from DealDash. I have read several reviews about the laminator and feel for my purposes this is going to fit my needs perfectly. Again, DealDash is coming up with great product offerings for their customers. We get free and fast shipping and some of the best finds we can really use in our homes. Thanks DealDash!
