I have a collection of manual typewriters and use them to write letters, and more recently to tap out birthday greetings. This is my fifth or sixth, and most complex.
To begin, I drew the letter lightly in pencil, then used just the lower case "x" key, and the lever that controls the black and red options for the ribbon. When it was finished, I erased the pencil marking.
It looks a bit like cross stitch don't you think?
The cards are always mailed—it seems to make them more special—because getting mail feels good . . . especially on your birthday!
