Abstract

There is presented an improved cardholder design for electric typewriters and printers using ball-type elements. A cardholder is used to maintain the print-receiving medium in proper relation to the platen while providing a window through which the print element makes contact with the ribbon. The current window shape results in paper damage when printing in the extreme upper left corner.
