As an integral part of communication, your company letterhead should be well-thought-out - after all, they’re one of the most important pieces of collateral for your business!

How your company letterhead looks is a reflection of you and what you do. Even in the digital age, physical correspondence is still very much ‘a thing’, presenting your company in a professional light and setting the tone for how you’ll interact with other people and businesses. Although emails are becoming the norm for many, physical letterheads feel much more personal, forging stronger relationships for years to come.
As well as creating a great first impression, letterheads can also unify your brand when the design is consistent with your other printed materials, such as business cards, compliment slips and even envelopes.
Many companies have a set of brand guidelines and a team of in-house designers to help them create perfectly complemented stationery, increasing their brand image. However, if you don’t have a creative background, why not let one of our designers at Bold Colours do the hard work for you?
