Letterheads seem to be a thing of the past, with so many businesses getting caught up in the digital age, people forget that everyone loves receiving ‘snail mail’. It’s easy to dismiss an email in our inbox, we hit delete without even a second thought, or if we don’t delete it, we leave it in there to come back to it later, but we all know we’ll get caught up with work & other things & we end up deleting it a week later anyway!
When you receive hard copy mail, printed on a Letterhead, it almost guaranteed to be opened, your customer will form a very professional image of you & your business, especially if all your stationery is branded & printed the same ie. If your Envelopes & Letterheads match.
What should you print on Letterheads? The options are endless really, you can type up a thank you letter, advise customers of a new product or service you will be offering or present a quote or proposal professionally.
There are elements that must be printed on your Letterheads, you want to provide all this information so that your customer can easily contact you, information such as:
Your company logo
Your company name
Your company address (physical and/or postal address)
Your company phone number
Your email & website
Your ABN is optional, but recommended
It’s also important to print your Letterheads on a good quality paper, Jett Print uses 100 gsm as a standard but also offer 120 gsm if you want something with a little bit more weight to give that wow factor. We also have 100% recycled paper if you are that way inclined.
Once your paper choice is sorted, you will need to work on your design, you don’t want to fill up too much space with design elements, as you will need the majority of the Letterhead to be blank so there will be plenty of room for the information that you be putting on there after they are printed. Keep within your business branding, use the same fonts & colours as your other printed material, Business cards, Envelopes, Note Pads etc. This makes your business more recognisable and will be more likely remembered.
It’s also recommend that you have your Letterheads professionally printed, home or office printers cannot produce high quality output prints & majority of the time they can’t print all the way to the edges either, leaving your Letterheads looking unprofessional. Always use a professional printing business, such as Jett Print, when printing any marketing material, they’re professionals for a reason. They will get it done quickly & at a reasonable cost.
