First of all, your printed letterheads are more than just a logo on a piece of paper, it is an opportunity to make the right impression with your clients and customers. Having well-designed, high quality letterhead is one of the crucial ways to achieve this. We will design and print your letterheads, compliment slips, business cards and other business stationery to the highest standards, ensuring you really stand out from your competitors.
Despite so much client communication being send via email and social media, sending a letter will still bring a personal touch that isn’t felt with other forms of correspondence.
Also, we are happy to print from your supplied artwork. Please ensure your artwork is in print ready format. Please visit our artwork specification for more information.
Our printed letterheads are produced lithographically or Digital TruePress and therefore compatible with laser printers. We do not recommend digitally printed letterheads as these cannot be over printed with a toner based laser printer.
Occasionally, businesses show all their concern for the design of the printed letterhead and overlook the important legal requirements for what must be displayed on a business letterhead for a UK Limited Company.
We do not offer legal information on what must be included and suggest you seek professional advice for your business type. Official Information can be viewed here.
Make sure your business letterhead content is correct from the start to avoid costly artwork changes and re-prints.
You must include:
State if you are trading under a different name to that of the registered company featured.
Many companies use their printed letterhead for invoices and estimates. Therefore, you must display the VAT number if the company is VAT registered.
There are instances when your letter or document requires several pages. The pages after the initial letterhead tend to be printed on sheets containing less information. As a result, the whole presentation has a more professional level. For this reason, contact details and company information maybe omitted. Consequently, the logo from the letterhead is often only item featured on the page.
Continuation paper allows you the convey your corporate style throughout the document without the visual clutter from the mandatory letterhead details. Printed to the same specification as the letterhead.
A compliment slip is a single sided slip of paper that is used to present the same contact details as the letterhead. The additional details such as company registration information or VAT number are left off.
The words “with compliment” or similar greetings are pre-printed on to the slips, or simply left blank. For this reason, you can casually add a hand written message or greeting as required. Consequently, compliment slips maybe enclosed with other documents when posted rather than using a formal letterhead. Hence, they are a very versatile and informal way to share your company details.
We can produce compliment slips to any relevant size but are generally 1/3 A4 (210mm x 99mm).
A traditional handwritten letter to a friend or family is a lovely way to communicate in a truly personal way. Hence, printed personal stationery such as letter headed writing paper and correspondence cards adds elegance and authority to your messages. Also, the design can express one’s identity and style. Visit or shop and view our range of personal stationery templates in our store. Alternatively, we will design something extra special for you, if required.
There are many instances when you don’t require a physical printed letterhead such as sending a document by email. Similarly, you will want your email version to mirror you printed letterheads without all the hassle of printing out and then rescanning your letters. We can provide your letterhead as a word template for you convenience. We don’t use Microsoft Word for producing our print-ready artwork but can convert the final design into a high quality template that is perfect for generating screen quality PDFs.
