Advice And Design Tips For Stationery
Stationery is still one of the business essentials. Stationery refers to your company's letterhead, business card and mailing envelopes.
What better way to promote your company than with matching letterhead, business cards and envelopes. Just think how that new logo will look on a professional set of stationery – business cards, letterheads and envelopes? Even in this electronic age, your stationery and letterhead design remains the primary method through which your market will get to know your company and new logo design.
Take your time and really think about he design of your stationery. You need to think about the typeface you want to use, how the logo will look on a business card, how this will effect the overall letterhead design, what ink colors will you use, what text will be included - such as address, phone number, your business slogan, on the letterhead and envelopes. Also do not forget paper stock. The heavier the paper, the more expensive it will be, but can also project a high-quality image.
When you design your stationery, keep in mind what type of customers will be seeing your business cards, letterhead, or who you will be mailing to. Choose a design style that looks professional and reflects your industry. A homemade looking letterhead can make you look unprofessional or amateurish. And don’t try to cut corners by printing your business cards and letterhead yourself on your own inkjet printer. That also looks cheap. Remember, every large and established company has custom printed stationery, and you can emulate them, no matter how small you may be, by making sure you have matching letterhead, envelopes,and business cards.
Here are some helpful tips to help your stationery look its best. Letterhead paper is typically 8½" x 11", and printed with laser-safe ink for use in laser printers. Also be sure it is printed “long grain” so it feeds through your printer without jamming. Be sure to include all your address and contact information somewhere on your letterhead. When it comes to selecting envelopes, do not get cheap with your choice. Always use matching envelopes, meaning your letterhead should be printed on the same kind of paper as your envelopes.
Business Cards are a necessity. Be generous in giving out your business cards, and make sure you think carefully about how you want your clients to contact you before including information on your business cards. For instance, cell phones are handy, but if you publish your cell number on your business cards, be prepared to receive calls at all hours.
