Typewriter Guestbook

My friend Anna reminded me of this idea from Martha Stewart a few months ago (while we were discussing her impending nuptials.) The idea is you get an old typewriter (or two) and put them where you would put a guestbook. Guests sign in by typing their names and warm wishes. A charming idea, Martha talks about it here.

    Charming? I guess. Possibly time consuming and slightly strange as well. Bottles of white-out next to the typewriters? hmm.

    I think the point here is not about time efficiency but rather doing something that is unique rather than something boring and cookie cutter.

    I would freak, just the thought of no spell checker gives me nightmares! Please have a heart for the spelling challenged.

    Sorry Rob,

    The lack of spell-checker is no excuse. Even a regular guest book won’t correct your spelling. Also, The mess-ups from typewriter add to the charm (in my humble opinion.)

    :) Thanks for the comment.
