Graphic design is experiencing a renaissance. More than ever, we rely on its ability to express and contain ideas and messages that are encapsulated in the branding of cities, corporations, and other socio-economical entities. Letterheads, billheads, logos and so on are the constituting parts of fast communication by a specific brand. Whether one sends or receives a message, there’s a demand for streamlined clarity, an economy of means.
A letterhead is the heading at the top of a sheet of letter paper. That heading usually consists of a name and an address, and a logo or corporate design, and sometimes a background pattern. The term “letterhead” is often used to refer to the whole sheet imprinted with such a heading. Many companies and individuals prefer to create a letterhead template in a word processor or other software application. This generally includes the same information as pre-printed stationery but without the additional costs involved. Letterhead can then be printed on stationery as needed on a local output device or sent electronically.
