How To Properly Design Your Custom Letterhead

Business owners are sometimes surprised to learn that designing custom letterheads is a big step towards affordable public relations. Once your professional letterhead is complete, it can be used for many purposes, and will become the single most visible aspect of your company. Because of the high visibility, designing custom letterheads requires careful thought or even the assistance of a printing expert like Hart Repro.

Your logo should be the central feature of your letterhead. Some companies design a logo that includes their letterhead, while other companies add the logo into a finished letterhead. Both options are fine, and you may discover that there are advantages to using both methods for different types of documents. A common problem is that business owners are not professional graphic designers, but that is easy to overcome by taking advantage of the design experience of Hart Repro. We have been serving NYC businesses since 1924, and our design team can help you turn your logo into a reality.

On Fonts and Colors

There are two schools of thought on the use of fonts and colors in designing custom letterheads. One side looks at the letterhead as a utilitarian tool that should be kept as simple as possible, while the other sees a letterhead as a first opportunity to make an impression at any cost. In practice, having both types of letterheads available is a wise tactic, allowing you to be a bit flamboyant when the situation calls for it, while presenting a more conservative face for common interactions. Come to Hart Repro with your letterhead design questions, and we will help you get the results you want.

One Letterhead, A Thousand Uses

Letterhead printing professionals will show you how to incorporate your letterhead into everything your company prints. By using your letterhead in a wide variety of ways, you will accomplish a higher sustained rate of visibility and associate the business more closely with the letterhead itself, a tactic that works well to encourage brand recognition. In addition to envelopes and stationery, a company letterhead also works well for:

  • Brochures and Pamphlets
  • Business Cards
