What do Albert Einstein, Frank Zappa, Pepsi Cola and IBM all have in common? The answer is they all had a good ‘old fashioned’ off-line vehicle for social networking and correspondence – the letterhead.

Way back in the days before email, MySpace, MSN, Facebook and Twitter the ordinary letter was a major means of personal communication.

The bespoke letterhead was a way of giving a letter a more personal or professional appeal.

Letterheady is website devoted to collecting and displaying all kinds of letterheads, not the content, but rather the design of the letterhead itself. There are many surprising and interesting examples covering business, celebrity and others and the site is well worth a browse.
