The Definition of Letter Headed Paper
Letter headed paper consists of a heading at the top of a sheet of paper (Normally A4 in size). The letterhead normally involves a heading which usually consists of a name, address, logo and sometimes can even include a background colour or pattern. The term “letter headed paper” or indeed “letterhead” is often used to describe the whole page imprinted with the heading.

It is imperative that the letter headed paper design you create reflects the image you want portray. Your letterhead will not only need to give the customer your business name & address details, it will also need generate a professional image reflecting the value of your products and/or services.
The overall design for your letter head paper should direct your business’s character. A good letterhead designed for a firm that wholesales babies clothes should be different from letter headed paper used in say a lawyers. Whatever happens it needs to reflect the nature of your business to create the correct image. You can manipulate the image on your letter headed paper, by using such elements like – your logo, graphic colours, various typestyles and of course the paper stock on which it is printed.
The elements to use on your letter headed paper should considered carefully and reference the following factors:
Company logo, do you have one? If you do, the logo to should appear on the letterhead. If you don’t have a company logo, then contemplate having a professional design one for you – it is a good way and a fun way of experimenting with your company’s personality. When you have decided on a logo, you can then of course use it on your business card printing and envelope printing. The logo can in fact be used on all other marketing materials your company wishes to use. If you consistently use it on all company materials it will build consistency and your brand recognition.
Think about the colours that are used to best represent your company image? If you use a colour scheme on other printed materials, you should really try and keep consistency and incorporate the colours into your letter headed paper. Doing so will maintain the company’s identity thorough it’s associated colour scheme.
What typestyle should use for your company name? Select a type face that echoes the perception of your company’s image, different type faces can create different images. The typeface used for the rest of your letterhead’s main content should also be a consideration. Ideally limit the typefaces on your letter headed paper to no more than two different styles.
Now it’s time to decide on what information is important to be added to the printed letterhead. Remember to use such things as your company name, company address and contact telephone numbers. Company slogan? If so, use it on the letterhead as well, a slogan is a great way to provide a targeted message showcasing your business and its ideals.
Here is a good one. The type of paper stock (thickness) that you use for your letter head printing. The paper’s stock, eventual finish and colour convey what your company is trying to say and how you are seen. Some people chose to use special paper types, ideally whatever you choose you should remain consistent across all your communications. Using matching paper stock adds uniformity to your overall business image.
