Vintage Letterhead Design

Back in the day, people wrote letters for business all of the time. Letterhead design was as important then as home page design is today!

I still believe a handwritten note on personal or company letterhead can make recipients feel extra-special. It’s an especially handy tactic for following up on a job interview, a business meeting or a pitch.

Here are some lovely vintage letterhead designs from around the web to inspire you!
