Designing the perfect letterhead for your business

June 17, 2017 · Print This Article

Your business stationery is the first point of contact with your clients, making it vital that it looks professional. Printed letterheads on good quality paper are a superb way of introducing your business to clients. Many businesses also keep a digital copy of their letterhead which is useful to create consistently branded MS Word documents.


Minuteman Press, Port Elizabeth CBD, provides quality digital printing of all corporate stationery. We offer various design services, including letterhead and business card design:


  • Letterhead design

A letterhead is designed in conjunction with other stationery such as business cards and compliment slips. Having a ‘matching set’ of corporate stationery ensures consistency in how you present your company when dealing with clients. It contributes to your professional image. The design should not be too visually complicated: the focus should be on your company logo and information.


  • Include contact details

Your business contact details should be included clearly on your letterhead. Include telephone numbers (both mobile and landline), your email address, physical address and postal address. Many business owners are now also including Skype on their business stationery.


  • Your company details

Any official company details such as your registration number, VAT number and BEE rating should be included on your letterhead. You may also want to include ISO accreditation and any other industry-specific accreditations that may relate to your business. This information allows your clients to see that you have been properly registered and accredited for the work that you offer.


  • Qualifications

In certain industries – such as engineering or law – it is a good idea to include your tertiary qualifications to authenticate your skills and experience.
