About The Letterjoy Experience
Legendary Pen Pals
Each week, you’ll receive a reproduction of a real letter from American history in your (physical) mailbox.
Over the course of your membership, you’ll read dispatches from a variety of famous or eloquent historical pen pals. Recent letter writers include Benjamin Franklin, Sitting Bull, Sojourner Truth, and Douglas MacArthur.
Timely & Timeless Topics
Each month, your letters will explore a different theme from four angles. Themes vary from month to month, so you may find yourself reading letters from infamous Wild West Gunslingers in one month and Civil War spies or captains of industry in the next.
A Classic Experience
No screens are required to enjoy Letterjoy. Opening your letters is as “old-school” an experience as can be. Each is mailed in an ivory envelope with a real first-class stamp, and all of your letters will arrive on fine stationery, vellum, or parchment with letterhead and other design touches engineered to transport you back in time.
The Context To Dig Deeper
Alongside each of your letters, you’ll receive “the postscript”, an article written by our expert researchers with detailed background information on your letter.
Each postscript is brimming with historical details perfect for inspiring an afternoon of reading or helping you win your next pub trivia game.
