My Baby Just Wrote Me A Letterhead


Yes, today's post is about vintage letterheads - but not just any old stationery letterhead. Some of these come from famous personalities and when you think about it, when's the last time you actually used a piece of letterhead? In today's high tech world of texting and emailing, letterhead is quickly becoming a relic. That makes these examples - that I found over at a neat site called Letterheady.com - so fascinating to me.

  4. Hi Pam--I am enjoying your blog so much! I really miss letterhead & stationary. I still think there is nothing quite like a hand-written note.

    BTW--Thanks for visiting me at the 1972 Retro WW Experiment. Sorry about the comment box issues--I have since fixed that!

    Hope you'll visit again soon.
