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.
