Contact Information: Include contact details such as phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses to facilitate seamless communication with your recipients.
Professional Design Elements: Incorporate clean and professional design elements that complement your brand, creating a visually appealing and cohesive look for your letterhead.
Tagline or Business Slogan: Consider including a clear tagline or business slogan that encapsulates your brand message, adding depth and resonance to your letterhead.
Legal Information (if applicable): Include pertinent legal information such as disclaimers, copyright notices, or other relevant details to ensure compliance and transparency.
Below is a list of great elements you can incorporate into your project to help your letterhead achieve a polished and impactful appearance.
Brand Elements: Use the Brand Wizard feature to set up your branding into your Visme workspace, and to allow you to apply your branding easily – not only to Letterheads but to any other projects you create. The Brand Wizard will supply you with ready-to-use, fully branded templates in a variety of formats, which is a great way to jumpstart your template library and pull helpful design elements into your Letterhead, if you wish.
Graphics and Visual Elements: Elevate your letterhead by adding appropriate graphics, shapes, or icons that harmonize with your letterhead style. Perhaps you have specific services and product offerings in your business, and while your Letterhead doesn’t extensively include details those, you can include icons that visually convey your business offerings in the footer or in the header of your Letterhead – adding a nice visual touch to support the readers of your letter with an idea of what your business offers.
Backgrounds: Tailor your letterhead’s background to amplify visual appeal and overall aesthetics. Keep in mind: Letters are generally white background, but perhaps you want to add a subtle texture in your background that is washed out, or even a watermark that would be behind the text – the background of the document Letterhead can help you achieve that. Always be sure to have the right levels of contrast in the colors of your background to your text and other elements in the letter itself so your readers can gather the information in the letter effectively.
Images: Include relevant images that effectively convey your company’s identity, products, or services, improving the overall communication impact. You can apply these images in a sidebar and format your text boxes to border the images.
