Becoming a Letterhead is fairly easy. You don’t have to pay dues or memberships, attend a bunch of meetings, or even know an existing Letterhead. For the most part, it is all a state of mind or something you feel in your heart. Once you make a conscious effort to better your abilities, your own level of esteem, and the craft in general—you are a Letterhead. Historically, the original Letterheads tried learning the craft by studying old books and applying newly learned skills to their work. The movement has evolved along with the changes in technology, and now just about any branch of the sign trade is included in its broad spectrum. You don’t have to produce reverse glass, carved redwood panels or even apply a piece of gold to be a Letterhead.
