How to Ensure Your Company Letterhead Looks Professional

Do you own a small independent business? Are you looking to create your own letterhead? Do you want to make sure it looks professional, but don’t want to spend a fortune consulting with the pros? While there is nothing wrong with tackling a letterhead design on your own, there are a few key things you’ll want to keep in mind when designing it.

Always Keep Things Simple and Streamlined

If there is one rule or tip to keep in mind, it’s to keep things extremely simple and streamlined. A busy looking letterhead only leads to confusion and doesn’t send out an ideal message about your company/brand. There’s nothing wrong with getting creative, but try to stay within limits, so you don’t get too carried away.

Additionally, you should never put too much information in the letterhead. Again, this goes back to keeping it simple.

Make Sure the Company Logo is Front and Center

One thing that should be found on the letterhead is your company logo. It should be easy to spot and not be hidden. It can be incorporated into the letterhead if you like, or stand out on its own.

Use an Easy-to-Read Font

Using different fonts is fun and can be a creative approach to letterhead design. But again, this is an area you don’t want to get too carried away with. Make sure to choose fonts that are easy to read. You also want to pick a font size that isn’t too large or too small.

Use the Same Design Across the Board

Because you will essentially be creating branding materials, you want to make sure all your items are consistent across the board. In other words, you want to use the same theme, colors, font, and message on your letterhead, as you do your business cards, website, flyers, brochures, emails, etc.

Welcome the Use of a Border

If you’re looking for something truly special and professional looking to add to your letterhead, you may want to make use of a border. You can choose something in black or gray tones, or you can get a bit bolder and use color. A border will completely transform how the letterhead looks.

Make Use of a Simple Tool

Once you’re ready to design the letterhead, there are a number of ways you can go about it, but one is to use the free letterhead templates provided by Adobe Spark. What this tool allows you to do is create some really professional looking results that send a message about your company. The letterhead can be printed on paper, or used on digital files.

With this particular tool, you’ll be able to choose the size and shape of the document that the letterhead will be used in, add images, pick the theme you want, pick the font, and then print, share, and download the results.

A Letterhead That Represents Your Company’s Image

By using these tips, you’ll be able to create a letterhead that represents your company in a true and positive way with less work and stress on your part.
