    Is there a theme to the letters I'll receive?

    Each month has a unique theme, from innovators (i.e Einstein, the Wright Brothers), to WWII (i,e. Churchill, a Kamikaze pilot). Special requests? Just ask. We may be able to accommodate you.

    Will my letters be typed or hand-written?

    Our goal is to balance authenticity and readability with every letter. The style of each letter is determined by the time period. Many letters from within the last 150 years are typed on our Smith-Corona typewriter. Others are hand-written by our designers, then enhanced with advanced graphic software.
