Vintage travel posters are our theme for 2021 
We have posters on display and you can check them out from the pages www.cometofinland.fi. The lay-out and colors are beautiful, and the lettering has charming vintage spirit in it. Those posters come from different ages, from twenties to sixties and even newer. Some of the top Finnish designers worked with them, among them Erik Bruun, Google him!  And of course your own input is just as welcome as always!

Helsinki Letterheads 2021 and Covid19
The main theme of our lives right now seems to be Covid19. It affects everything, including the Helsinki Letterheads arrangements. It seems like nobody can tell what the situation will be in four months’ time. Finland has survived very well, partly because of strict precautions but also because we are a small country with a small population. During the most recent fourteen-day monitoring period,  1,149 new cases were diagnosed. The incidence of new cases in relation to the population was 22,5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The total amount of cases reported in Finland is 10244. The number of people in hospital care in Finland is 19, and the number of people in intensive care is 4. These figures are from October 2:nd.

We do realize that a major number of the participants of Helsinki Letterheads comes from abroad, from
countries where the situation varies. Some people can come here easily, in other countries the regulations practically prohibits the visits abroad. So we will stay alert and inform you as soon as we know how covid-situation is proceeding toward the end of the year. Meanwhile our arrangements proceed as scheduled, but we are also prepared for the possible upcoming changes. In case of a closure in Finnish borders, you have a possibility to get a refund of your payment with deduction of 30 € for the office expenses. Or transfer your payment to the postponed Helsinki Letterheads, which will take place in February 2022. For the possible case of cancellation, check here for more information.
