Hand Written Letter Project

Hand written letter project crouwel

Here’s a great lit­tle project by the tal­ented Craig Old­ham. Hand Writ­ten Let­ter Project was started in 2007, and is a col­lec­tion of hand writ­ten let­ters by some well-regarded design­ers on their own sta­tionery. Some of the invited design­ers include Michael Bierut, Steven Heller, Tony Brook, Mil­ton Glaser, and my favorite of the col­lec­tion, Wim Crouwel.

The col­lec­tion will be released in a lim­ited edi­tion book that will accom­pany a trav­el­ing exhi­bi­tion, both of which will be rais­ing funds for the National Lit­er­acy Trust.

Great idea and cause.

    S i r ,
    It is a plea­sure for me to men­tion that 23rd:January
    is a very remark­able day for all of us, spe­cially in the field of
    com­mu­ni­ca­tions. PEN MANSHIP and Good HANDWRITING really adds a more
    per­sonal and more per­sua­sive touch as well as inti­macy to a let­ter.
    Though com­puter & E.mail play an impor­tant role, but noth­ing will ever
    replace the effec­tion and sin­cer­ity of HANDWRITTEN words.
    To mark this impor­tant day and to re-explore the
    real power & purity of HANDWRITING please con­tribute your mini share
    in the “National Hand­writ­ing Day’s Cel­e­bra­tions” by allow­ing a very
    small share,from your offi­cial Typed Mail­ings to Per­sonal Hand­writ­ten
    Mail­ings. Really this will be a great job towards the restora­tion of
    present declin­ing con­di­tion of real hand­writ­ten let­ters, notes, cards
    and envelopes etc.
    I am an expe­ri­enced Pen Master/handwriter.Providing
    qual­ity ser­vice and deliv­er­ing excel­lent hand­writ­ing is my core
    busi­ness. To add myself in this Celebrations,it will be a plea­sure
    for me to hand­write first five let­ter or notes from your side as a
    SAMPLE / TRIAL, Pen­man­ship with­out any charges.
    I am con­fi­dent that I will be able to do your
    pen­man­ship job with per­fec­tion and accu­racy accord­ing to your
    instruc­tions. I will be extreamly great­ful if you please con­sider
    me and oblidge. Please visit Attach­ments for SAMPLE Hand­writ­ing.

  • Few feel­ings beat the excite­ment of receiv­ing a hand-written let­ter in the mail. In a time where we’re so used to the printed word, let­ters that have been writ­ten by hand show almost-forgotten thought and effort. They cap­ture our inter­est and our imag­i­na­tion, and they make us feel special.

    You can send a hand-written let­ter with­out leav­ing your own home or office. Our let­ters are suit­able for per­sonal or busi­ness use, and we’re able to write let­ters in bulk for suc­cess­ful mass mail­ings with that indi­vid­ual touch. With us, your let­ters are worth attention.
