Letterhead


I had a conversation with Cassie yesterday about bringing back the handwritten letter. (She actually wrote me one which came in the mail yesterday as well). Letters carry much more meaning than the unlimited number of other ways we have to communicate these days. You don't just write a letter on the fly. A letter implies thought and purpose and time. With that in mind, I decided to create my own custom letterhead. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to convert the vision in my head to a form transferrable to paper. Thus I commissioned my brother Cory to make it happen, and he did a splendid job. The "logo" above is the end result.

I really like this design. And I like that you used the word splendid. I also like that when I see this I hear the song in my head, "Mr. JT, what you got for me..." (Referring to a different Mr. JT, but who cares.)

interesting - i was just thinking about this very this last week when i ran across this story: http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/07/i-hear-you-like-tomato-soup.html

i thought to myself how great that letterhead was, which kicked off the train of thought.

Great minds think alike, huh Trey?! I've always thought of letterhead as something only businesses or important people used. But I'm beginning to think of it differently. It certainly makes letter writing more enjoyable. I'm actually having some blank sheets of stationery with letterhead printed up today!

Loved getting a letter from you today with the new letterhead, it made it a little more special.
