Your business needs to have a professional image. A well-designed letterhead helps to create that image. This can also enable the recipient take your letter more seriously. The letterheads will be a point of contact between you and with whom you are communicating with.  If you have a company, it could contribute towards the branding for new and current customers, employees and suppliers alike.

For a letterhead to be effective it should display all relevant contact details and clear contact name, or if the letterhead is from a company, it should include the logo and company name for branding purposes. It should also contain the physical address, its postal address.
