Royal Electric Typewriters, 1956 on Flickr.

“A woman’s scarf: or how to boost typing production
Off-beat as this statement may appear, nevertheless the scarf weighs more than the amount of weight it takes to depress one key on the new Royal Electric.
In fact, the new Royal Electric is 13 times easier to operate than a non-electric typewriter - which simply means a big boost in typing prodcution.
How big a boost? In your case, it involves these factors: Typists’ salaries, days workes per year, hours types per day, and production rates.
When you and your Royal Representative talk over these factors, he’ll be able to calculate the expected savings when you install new Royal Electrics.
