How to Design Letterheads that Command Attention


Your letterhead represents your business. It showcases your logo, your slogan, and exactly what your company stands for. And, since you only have so much space to convey your message, it’s important to design the right look. Let us show you how you can design letterheads that command attention and makes your company stand out!


Select Quality Stock Paper


The type of stock you use matters. Flimsy, loose stock never looks professional. If you want what’s best for your corporate image, high-quality stock paper for your letterheads is a must. Ottawa Print offers both 70lbs offset or textured Linen premium paper.


Use Bold Colors


How to Design Letterheads that Command Attention


One colour can look nice, but if you add a variety of rich, bold colours then you can get your letterhead to stand out. At Ottawa Print, you can select up to four colours to be printed on one or both sides. We also use a full-colour process (CYMK) that ensures your branding colours match and your images pop.


Use a Custom Size


If you’re aiming to impress, you need to do something different to stand out in a crowded marketplace. So why not try a custom size for your letterhead? By ditching the standard 8.5x11 or 8.5x14 and using a new size, it’ll be hard not to get noticed.


Don’t Forget the Details


Your letterhead should include the most important pieces of information that you are trying to portray. Make sure to include at least your logo, slogan, address, phone number, and company name on the letterhead. Remember that simplicity is key — you want it to stand out but not look too busy that it hurts the eyes. So avoid using too many colours, too large of font, and too much text. Ensure there is plenty of white space and that your logo and slogan have an attractive font and professional design.


Add a Matching Envelope


Why not take it one step further with a matching envelope? This will show all your clients and customers just how seriously you take your business and your image.
