Write this Way - Disney Letterhead

I love all kinds of stationary and that includes really fun letterhead. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, letterhead is defined as follows:

the name and address of an organization (such as a company) that is printed at the top of a piece of paper used for writing official letters; also : paper that has the name and address of an organization printed at the top

I usually go on eBay to see what kind of Disney type of stationary is out there. Over the years that the Walt Disney Company has been around, there has been letterhead for their movie productions, Park divisions, and other Disney events. Whenever there is name change for Disney divisions or logo updates, there is new letterhead. When I worked at Disneyland, I received variety of correspondence that included special letterhead to commemorate milestones like Park anniversaries. 

Here's one example of Disneyland letterhead that was used in the 1990s. Remember that this time period is before the existence of Disney California Adventure.

I recently discovered a retro pack of Disney letterhead compiled by the Walt Disney Archives that I purchased through Amazon. There are two different versions and each has 40 sheets of letterhead (5 each of 8 designs).

It is going to be fun to mail some of these out to my reproductions to my friends who are Disney fans. Getting some pretty snail mail these days is a plus. I posted another idea in this post about an idea of how to turn some of this Disney letterhead into a reusable memo board. 

A couple years ago, I discovered this really great site called, Letters of Note. I liked it for not just some of the awesome post of correspondence from famous people but it really highlights the art to letter writing through decades. You can do a search on this site for "Disney" or "Walt Disney" and there are several blog posts related to specific Disney letters like this one and my one of favorites from Disney Legend Ward Kimball on Walt Disney Productions letterhead. 

Take some time to write a note to a special someone and put it in the mail. 

Have a magical day!
