Retro office equipment- for real work, or just for fun! The 70s orange Dymo ‘1780’ label makers come with labelling tape – they take 3/8” tape [9mm] – so you can get labelling straight away.  The Dymo tape is still available; most larger stationery shops stock it. One of these label maker comes complete with its original box and full instructions. You can see the font type of the ‘1780’; just click on the image and look at the black label adorning the label maker on the left. The label is accurate it’s….FUN…FUN!

The mustard-coloured Teledex is bakelite, and comes complete with ‘unused’ pale blue file inserts. Very 70s! No retro inspired office should be without one. Sure, everyone keeps telephone numbers on their mobile phones nowadays…but how much fun is it to zip that little knob up and down and push the button to spring open the index? I could do it all day.

And no collection would be complete without a date stamp. Stamp like its 1999!
