Although the old saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” the reason the saying exists at all is that we do judge books by their covers. And everyone knows that first impressions are lasting impressions.
This is why, if you run a business in this hyper-competitive modern world, it is an absolute necessity that you have high quality letterhead paper for your business.
Any business that corresponds with its clients through letters, quotes, estimates, or any kind of printed content, needs to have a professional and attractive letterhead.
Your letterhead (and envelope, but that is a post for another day) will often be the first point of contact with existing and prospective clients, and you want to have a letterhead that represents your company and impresses your clients.
A professionally designed and printed letterhead conveys the proper initial impression to your contacts.
How Can Custom Letterheads Improve Your Business?
Letterhead increases brand awareness – It is crucial that a business have a market identity and image that is instantly recognisable. Your clients and prospects should be able, in a glance, to recognise that a communication is from you!
This is where custom letterheads are useful. Custom letterheads identify your business, set a tone (established, edgy, modern, traditional, technological, fun, eco-friendly, and so forth), and define your brand.
A good letterhead is easy to identify, singular enough to be recognised, and well designed. Not Just a Copy Shop can take your existing letterhead, or work with you to develop a unique and attractive letterhead.
Letterhead establishes bona fides and professionalism – The quality of custom letterhead demonstrates a sense of commitment, which alerts your contacts that you are serious – that you can be trusted.
A strongly designed letterhead, well-printed on good paper can create credibility and build immediate connection. The first step to turning prospects into clients and clients into repeat customers.
Why A4 Letterhead?
The international letterhead size is an A4. It is what most businesses will expect and paper and envelopes are available and economical.
