Why Buy Used From Us

Buying directly from Stenograph offers several key benefits.

Why Buy Used Steno Writers From Us?


Whether you are a student just starting out in Court Reporting school or a seasoned court reporter, buying a shorthand writer is an important decision. Depending on your needs, you may choose to purchase a used steno writer. When choosing where to buy your used writer, be sure to go with a company that not only sells the product but which also manufactures and stands behind it. Stenograph writers are used by more than 20,000 court reports, which says a lot about Stenograph the company and Stenograph writers’ reputation, but other points to consider are Stenograph’s history, quality, warranty and support.


Stenograph has been the leading manufacturer of shorthand and court reporting equipment for over 76 years. Since 1938, Stenograph has grown to more than 150 employees strong.



Stenograph is proud of its A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and feels the BBB’s top rating not only reflects on the Stenograph company itself, but also how satisfied customers are with the quality of the Stenograph writers.


Before Stenograph sells one of its pre-owned writing machines, each writer is thoroughly inspected, reconditioned and brought back to a near new condition – ready to write. Another benefit of buying a used Wave or Diamante writer directly from Stenograph is that it comes with a warranty from the company who built your writer – no other company can do that.
