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. Some of these are just plain high art.









The Rolling Stones' stationery from 1969 is surprisingly bland:


By far, my favorite. Just one word and image immediately identifies it.

Those are fabulous! Love the J. Cash one- you've inspired me to consider a letterhead.

I really like the Gene Autry one. Nifty. I would never have thought to feature vintage letterheads.

I haven't seen these themed letterheads for a while...too much computer stuff has killed that off.

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.
