First images last! You’re professionally designed and executed stationary represents your company in the marketplace in Montague Gardens, and therefore you need to refresh your stationary’s image on a regular basis so that your corporate look does not become boring and outdated. Many established businesses know that keeping things “fresh” creates a bigger turnover at the end of the day!

Your company’s stationery speaks volumes of your company and will be a direct representation and reflection of your business. This is why you will want to put your best foot forward and make a lasting impression with quality executed business stationery.

Firstly, identify what pieces of corporate stationery you need. The usual list is your basic letterhead, business card and compliments slip, but you may need to add to this list. With so many different designs and printing services available today, the sky is the limit for designing your own unique corporate stationary and invitations.

Your business card is your calling card

You can go as simple or as creative as you like. Simple doesn’t necessarily mean boring or plain. Avoid the need to go too overboard with colours or wacky designs. The business card should complement the type of company you have. Remember that the business card is often the first communication that a potential customer will receive so you need to make an impact with it.

The letterhead and compliments slip

This needs to be a simple design either framing the paper or appearing as a watermark on each page. This paper is then put into your printer for you to type up official letters before printing.

Never ever clutter the page with your design and take care that the design is not too overpowering. It needs to leave enough space for your typed content. Your company’s information needs to be small, but clear enough to read. The compliments slip should feature a similar design, but is about a third of the size of a full A4 page.

Presentation folders

This is an A4 folder featuring your corporate identity and has space for documents to be slipped inside as well as a pocket for a business card. It has a large surface area, so go for a paper in the same card as your business card and perhaps have your company logo printed on the front, in the bottom right hand corner. There is space here to go big, so make sure your logo is as clear as possible.
