    Inserting PaperNOTE: Your typewriter handles 12 wide paper and a 9typing line. Standard bond paper stock is recommended forbest quality. Copier paper, erasable bonds and very heavilytextured bond papers do not print well with CorrectableFilm Ribbons. For these papers, we recommend HighDensity Correctable or Multi-Strike Film. If typingstencils, use those specifically designed for daisywheelprinters.
