American Heritage Paper
Jane Ayers Sweat & Pamela J. King, Proprietors
We specialize in antique letterheads, billheads, checks, promissory notes, magazines,historical/legal documents, vintage magazine ads.
We are purveyors of paper, ephemera, & antiquities. We see beauty, not only in paper, but in the written word. We are here to share that beauty with you. We began this journey after traveling to the past through Greatgrandpa John R. Ayers' personal collection of legal documents and handwritten letters. As an attorney in the late 1800's/early 1900's, he handled countless court cases & wrote many documents in his elegantly flowing script.How could we not wish to preserve this part of our American heritage ?
Last, but not least, we are here because we realize the importance of paper to our family history. As amateur genealogists we feel we must save & protect what paper items our ancestors left behind. Perhaps, in our offerings, you may find a piece of your own ancestor's past. Let us say that we do not deal in copies or reproductions. Most of our documents & letters carry original signatures. Imagine finding a cancelled check your Greatgrandfather wrote or finding a letterhead of a company where your ancestor was employed.
In addition, we offer other pieces of our American heritage such as postcards, old magazines, vintage magazine ads, billheads, brochures, pamphlets, and rare/out of print books.
As Greatgrandpa Ayers once said, "Every honest man deserves a chance." If you will allow us to have our chance, we will earn your trust through our friendly, helpful, efficient service. We are always available to answer your questions or to assist you in finding that special something. We hope you will enjoy, as we do, traveling the path of our American Heritage.
