  Smith Corona, also known as SCM or LC Smith, began manufacturing typewriters in the late 1800’s, and they are still in the typewriter business today. They started with the manual typebar typewriter, and then they added an electric motor and presto! They introduced their version of the electric typewriter in 1955, followed by the electric portable typewriter in 1957.  The full-sized electric typewriter was in direct competition with the IBM typewriter and lost the race, but the SCM portable typewriter became America’s favorite typewriter. When electronic typewriters were introduced, Smith Corona continued to be the leader in the portable typewriter industry with their Typetronic and Memory-Correct models. Typewriters with daisy wheels or printwheels that offered self-correction features were the most amazing thing that typists had ever seen, and Smith Corona kept on going. 

  Through the years, Smith Corona developed new ways to improve the ease of operating their typewriters, including the introduction of the power carriage return in 1960, and the first removable cartridge ribbon in 1973.  In 1985, the Smith Corona Personal Word Processor debuted.  Personal Word Processors allowed the typist to store their documents and reprint with just one keystroke. They offered memory storage just like a computer but could easily be used as a simple typewriter that was always convenient and easy to operate. They continued to manufacture their own machines until they could no longer compete with imports and they started offering foreign electronic typewriters under the SCM or Smith Corona brand.

  Changing typewriter ribbon manufacturers has created problems for typewriter owners in selecting the correct supplies for their machine, because the supply manufacturer is unknown.  This page was created to assist Smith Corona Typewriter owners that need additional information to find the correct printwheel, daisywheel, lift-off correction tape, correctable film ribbon, old spool ribbon, cartridge ribbon, and other supplies for their Smith Corona Typewriter.
