    Where do you find your letters?

    Our researchers comb through the world's best archives and special collections to find the best notable letters and hidden gems to tell every story. Some of our letters are legendary. Others have never before been published.

    Is there a theme to the letters we'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.

    Is there a discount for ordering for multiple classrooms?

    Yes. This is available at checkout.

    Will our 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.

    Is volume pricing available?

    Yes. Please contact us if you would like to place an order for seven or more classrooms.
