A new Royal Portable can raise her marks up to 38%

It happens every day! Many so-called “slow students” learn to type and then show up on the honor roll.

Incredible? Not at all. Typing makes homework fun, actually encourages study, helps organize lessons, helps finish assignments faster.

Start them right with Royal! Twin-Pak, the quick-change, no-smudge ribbon… Magic Margin… extra light touch … that famous Royal ruggedness!

These are just a few of the exclusives that make the 1958 Royal Portable the greatest portable that ever went to school — the all-time favorite of students.

Pay just pennies a day! You can buy a Royal Portable in any one of the 6 wonderful colors for only a few pennies a day, with up to two full years to pay. There’s nothing to keep you from giving your student a new Royal Portable — and a Royal send-off toward better grades — right now.

Convenience plus! Only the new Royal Portable gives you Twin-Pak ribbon. Changes instantly — no messy fingers.
