This automatic paper bail closer allows uninterrupted printing without operator intervention from the first writing line at the top of the sheet of paper to the bottom of the sheet. For printing at the top of the sheet and on a predetermined number of lines thereafter, the paper bail is open. After a predetermined number of lines have been printed the bail is automatically closed to provide firm contact of the paper and the platen and to assure that the top of the sheet is properly guided out of the printer.
