30 Amazing And Legendary Letterhead Designs

For those who don’t know, a letterhead is the heading at the top of a sheet of letter paper  That heading usually consists of a name and an address, and a logo or corporate design, and sometimes a background pattern. The term “letterhead” is often used to refer to the whole sheet imprinted with such a heading.

In this article I have collected 30 amazing letterheads used by some of the most remarkable personalities or companies from around the world. Last but not least, I want to say a big thanks to Letterheady for their huge letterhead database. Without them, this article couldn’t be done.
