• Big-Ass Rolls of Paper, Part Two

    Just when I thought it was safe to get back on Ebay, a little search turned up a couple of good finds. I'm talking about that big-ass roll of Kerouacian paper that someone else snagged not long ago. Well, I've found about about 144 more rolls. It's teletype paper.

    Take a look HERE for the canary, Army surplus teletype paper (sans carbon).

    Peek over HERE for the carbon, multicopy paper rolls with carbon.

    This is a good news / bad news situation, though. It seems they're only sold in boxes of 12 right now and the shipping is crazy-high. Not to worry, I've left a note for the seller asking about selling singles. Anyone else interested?

    Hey, I'm just here to help.

    UPDATE: The seller is willing to part with these individually, so if you're interested, click on the link and contact him. His name is Mike and he sounds delightful.

    1. Let me know what you discover about the ability to purchase a lone BAROP.

    2. Heads up, BAROP fans. He's willing to sell the rolls individually. Just click on one of the links in the post and send him a little note.

      BAROPs all round!

    3. Oh lord...this seller is about ten minutes from here. Literally. If that.


    4. You wouldn't even have to pay shipping!

    5. -Sniff-

      I used to be special.

    6. You realize your BAROP experience is completely responsible for this. I'm already trying to figure out which typewriter to set this up with. Since I have two rolls coming (one multi-copy with carbons and one "canary" without), I'm clearly going to need set-up advice.

      You're my go-to guy!

    7. I thought you might find this interesting as a source for slightly smaller orders of the teletype paper.

      They also seem to be selling it in white, which would be nice.



    8. Hunter, thanks so much! A new 235-foot B.A.R.O.P. is a special kind of magic. And in white! Heaven.
