Contents of an order from Ribbons Unlimited laid out on a crafting mat. On the left are a pair of Remington metal hubs with black and purple ribbon. To the right are a pair of small spools for a Skyriter with black ribbon and next to this are business cards and stickers from the company.

Index card typewritten in black ink which reads: My order from Ribbons Unlimited just arrived. I now have the correct sized ribbon spools for this Smith-Corona Skyriter.
