Types of Stationery

There are many different types of stationery to choose from, so how do you know which type is right for you? First of all, you'll want to decide what sort of correspondence that you'll be doing with the stationery you purchase. If you're planning to write informal notes or letters for personal use, a simple note card with just your name printed on it can be an excellent choice. You could also choose to have a note pad printed with your name at the top - such as those pages that are labeled “A Note From...”, and letters written on this type of paper give a personal touch. If you're looking for stationery that's a bit more professional, you could go with a typeset letterhead, on a letter size (8.5” x 11”) sheet of paper. This type of stationery is perfect for running through your computer's printer, and can be used for correspondence ranging from slightly formal letters to professional, legal documents.
