Few tips for having effective letterheads

- Paper: The paper that is used is the first impression that the company gives to the recipient. The paper used by the corporate houses is mostly bond paper but to make it more effective and impressionable, one can use hand made paper that is eco-friendly. Textured paper can be another option for letterhead printing.
- Font size: The font size of the letter head should be such that it is easily readable. The font size should co-relate to the matter that is printed, but it should be clear for the reader to read it easily. The spellings should also be checked otherwise it will give a very bad impression to the receiver about your company.
- Color: The color of the letterhead should go with the overall color of your company’s message and other stationery. The font color should also complement your marketing message.
- Logo: The logo of your company should be clearly printed and visible. It should not be smudged and the motto should be read easily. The logo will let people familiarize with your company and your business will boom.
- Contact details: Make sure that the contact details printed on the letterhead is the latest one so that you can be contacted at the earliest. The contact phone number should be the latest one and any change in the contact detail should be immediately updated.
