Purpose of Letterheads
|Don't forget to include your|
company registration number!
What information to include in your letterhead?On your letterhead, your contact details such as your address, phone, fax number and e-mail address is a must. It is also a legal requirement to include your company registration number in your letterheads. If you have a company tagline, do include it in your letterhead as well.
Professional Looking LetterheadsTo print a good looking and professional letterhead, you should start off with a clean looking design, free of clutter. Keep colours to a minimum and text in legible size and fonts. Choose a material of at least 100gsm in weight. If cost is not an issue, do consider premium paper for your letterheads such as the watermarked or textured varieties.
If you are using a laser printer in your office to overprint your letterheads, you will want to choose offset printing and avoid toner based printed letterheads as this will cause ghosting in your letterheads when you try to overprint them. Ghosting will make your letterheads look bad and may even cause damage to your laser printer.
