Small businesses must be budget-conscious in order to market efficiently and maximize profits, which means you need to be selective about which marketing materials you invest in. Sales literature, such as brochures, and direct-mailers, such as postcards, are no-brainers for many small businesses because they’re meant to influence sales; but what about letterhead? Do small businesses really need custom letterhead?
Though it’s certainly possible to operate a business without letterhead, if you send a lot of paper-based communications custom letterhead adds a professional touch to your image that lends itself to trust, credibility, customer loyalty, and ultimately business growth.
Quotes, estimates, invoices, sales letters, and thank-you letters all look better on company letterhead. And not just any letterhead will do: if you’re going to invest in letterhead, you should opt for custom letterhead printing.
You don’t want to look like you’ve printed your letterhead on cheap, flimsy computer paper; which will make your business look likewise cheap and flimsy. Instead, print letterhead on 70 lb. white wove or 24 lb. smooth stationery paper.
Distinctive, branded visuals
Custom letterhead printing puts you in control of your branding, so your logo and text aren’t boxed into predefined areas. The last thing you want is to look exactly like your competitors! You can also take advantage of options such as foil stamping and die-cutting to give your letterhead a distinctive look. Add in folding or scoring to make mailing a breeze.
