Designing Stationery In An Electronic Age?

You probably send a hundred emails for every written communication you put through the post nowadays, so why would having a great letterhead matter?  Just take a moment to add up how many letters you actually receive each day and think again!  Most businesses still communicate with their customers using snail mail – and an arresting letterhead could just stop your client’s sales pitch ending up straight in the bin.

 

Good stationery design is an essential element to branding and puts the company logo into the context of a personalised communication. A well-designed letterhead can speak volumes over and above the contents of the letter; it can be used to showcase a company’s ethical stance, its commitment to quality and its USP.

Consider the following pointers before you start designing your client’s corporate stationery:

  • Rationalise the information the letterhead needs to carry. There’s nothing more hideous than a letterhead with multiple addresses, numerous phone numbers and a plethora of email and Web addresses. Stress to your client the need to keep it short, to the point and above all check it and double check it again. Mistakes will be costly.

 

  • Discuss with your client which items of stationery they actually need. Letterheads and business cards are absolutely essential, but they might also find compliments slips, blank postcards and branded envelopes useful. By designing and printing at the same time, you can ensure that the paper stock and colours are identical.

 

  • These days companies need stationery that will work both on paper and electronically. A letterhead is often the calling card of a company and may be the first branded item their potential customers see. The company logo will be an intrinsic element of the design so it makes sense for companies to use the same designer for both jobs.

 

  • Although you may be constrained in terms of the budget your client has allowed for, use the best quality paper it will afford. A heavier weight of paper speaks of quality, while using recycled paper makes a statement about their ethical credentials. However, whatever paper you suggest, check that it’s suitable for use in their office printer.

 

  • Make the design memorable in the right way. Novelty stationery in garish colours and inconvenient sizes quickly becomes irritating to the users and the recipients. However, well-designed stationery can be made to stand out through the judicious use of embossing, foil blocking, clever positioning of graphic elements or die cuts. Use colour as an accent or highlight rather than flooding the stationery with every colour of the rainbow.

 

  • Make the stationery sell the brand. The colours used, the paper it’s printed on and the information carried on the corporate stationery is all part of the company’s branding. The corporate logo absolutely must be the starting point for stationery design, as it’s essential to convey a consistent message across all of your client’s corporate communications. This is why it makes perfect sense to have a logo and stationery designed in tandem – it’s the best way to ensure that they will work together rather than against each other.
