Graphic Design Resource: Custom Letterheads

January 12, 2010

Custom printed letterhead
Letterheads are used by every company out there. It’s a professional way to send out a business letter to your client. Now because existing or possible customers will be seeing this, it’s important to keep it very unique and professional. If it is one thing that goes over looked throughout the whole business stationery design set, it’s the letterhead.

People do not take into account that the letterhead needs a lot of breathing space for the actually part of where people will be typing. Always make sure you design things around that people will roughly be writing 5 – 7 paragraphs at most.

You can choose to put the logo and information on the top or bottom of the letterhead. If you do choose to put both on either side, always make sure you’re only taking up, AT THE MOST, 2 inches. Anything bigger than that will look visually unbalanced and gives your writer less space to write.

Now if you choose to bleed your letterhead, make sure to grab the template PurpleMonkeyPrinting.com supplies (located at the bottom of this article). With the template, it gives you all the trim and bleed marks, as well as safe zones for the text. Read up on bleeds and trim marks on a past article we wrote, here.

Here is the correct template:

Graphic Design Resource: Custom Notepads

January 8, 2010

Notepads are something that every company should have. Everyone at every workplace will use one, and it’s important to keep your brand consistent through every thing you can get your grubby little hands on. Now, I use a notepad every single day. Sketching out ideas, notes, doodling, tic-tac-toe, and other calamities. It’s like a cushion for someone’s mind who is cluttered as mine is always a mess.

Now one might think, “OH BAH! A notepad can just be a blank sheet of paper.” To this I say no. Advertise your company on it and hand them out to people so they know who you are and your information. Put little games like Hangman or, as previously stated, Tic-Tac-Toe on the bottom of the pad just in case someone wants to start playing some games during a meeting. Consider using fancy die-cuts so you possibly can cut your notepad into the shape of your logo. Do something so you can be set apart from the other companies out there to make your company a memorable one.

Supplied next are some standard sizes for notepads. Use these templates so you know where your safe spots are for text and imagery as well as where to correctly place all bleeds. All supplied templates come with files compatible with InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator as well as standard PDF and JPEG formats.

PurpleMonkeyPrinting.com – Your One-Stop-Shop for All of Your Custom Envelope and Commercial Printing Needs…

January 4, 2010

There are a lot of online printshops out there. A lot. I mean, we’re talking hundreds. What you’ll see is that a lot of them might only specialize in particular types of printing. For example, one of them might only do business stationary printing, while another one might only specialize in envelopes.

When you need to print more than one type of product, the last night you need to be doing is running around to different online printers and working around their restrictions and such. Also, when you’re on a deadline, when you’re working with different printhouses, the chances of you getting everything on the same date is slimmer.

That’s where we come in. When you’re working with a printer who can handle all of your custom printed envelopes as well as your commercial print work, you got yourself a winner. We’ll save you the headache of dealing with multiple printers.

If you need something that’s not listed under our product list, feel free to fill out a custom quote form on our website. Our customer service representatives will respond with a custom quote within 24 hours! How sweet is that?

Come check out PurpleMonkeyPrinting.com today and alleviate yourself of shopping with multiple printers.
