Letterheads Made Easy with Templates
Letterhead created from the free templates available on the Web will give your small business corporate credibility and should also reflect the individual spirit of the 'maverick' which spurred you on to strike out on your own in the first place. The logo you create to represent your company can be uploaded easily onto these free templates. Then, it’s just a matter of choosing fonts and colors to produce the finished product which will headline any correspondence to your existing and potential customers. Your business identity is a very important factor in representing your dedication to professionalism.
There are a few basic template designs that are very easy to download into a Microsoft Word file or a Corel Draw file, depending upon your preference, at http://www.letterhead-templates.com/. After you have downloaded the selected template, merely change the text to include your business name and contact information along with any logos or graphics you want on it.
Hewlett-Packard also has a good design studio which allows you to create your own logos, if you don’t already have one, and integrate it with their array of templates. By the same token, Microsoft has templates at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/CT101043261033.aspx?ofcresset=1. And there are many other offerings available on the net, which a quick search will locate, if you don’t find something you like on the sites I listed.
You can also use a bargain-based printing company like Vista Print which allows you to design the letterhead from templates online and then they will print it out on the paper you choose and send it to you.
With all that, you have access to an abundant supply of free templates which can get you a sharp-looking letterhead to reflect the fine work your company does.
