There are several ways to create a template for your letterhead. You could choose to do the work yourself, or have someone in your company design your letterhead. Often, this is the easiest way, because you don't have to pay an additional company or designer to create your letterhead before sending it to the printer. Another way to have your letterhead printed that costs even less, however, is to use a free letterhead template. Many of these free templates are available on the Internet, and you can find templates for popular programs such as Microsoft Word and Quark Xpress (a professional design program). If you choose to use a free letterhead template, be sure to use one that is compatible with your company's idea of style (ie, don't use a modern template if your company is very old-fashioned) and one that will work well with any graphics you plan to use. Also be sure to research whether your chosen free letterhead template can be used for business purposes; often free templates are only “free” when they're being used for personal use, and you may have to pay a fee to use them professionally.
