Forms and Letterheads

Letterheads are the printed sheets of paper that businesses and individuals use for their official correspondence. They typically feature a company's name, logo, address, and other contact information, and are used to give correspondence a professional and official appearance. The history of letterheads can be traced back to the early days of printing.

In the early 15th century, the printing press was invented, and soon after, people began using printed paper for their personal and business correspondence. However, it wasn't until the 19th century that letterheads as we know them today began to emerge.

During the Industrial Revolution, businesses began to grow rapidly, and there was an increasing need for official correspondence. Letterheads became a way for businesses to differentiate themselves and establish their identity. They also served as a form of advertising, with businesses using their letterheads to promote their products and services.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, letterhead design became more elaborate, with businesses using intricate designs, embossing, and other decorative elements to make their letterheads stand out. Letterheads were also used to convey a sense of prestige and importance, with some companies commissioning artists to create custom designs for their letterheads.

In the mid-20th century, the use of letterheads began to decline with the advent of electronic communication. However, many businesses still use letterheads today, particularly for formal correspondence such as contracts, invoices, and legal documents.

Today, letterhead design has evolved to include digital formats, such as email templates and PDF documents. While the physical letterhead may not be as prevalent as it once was, its legacy lives on in the continued use of formal and professional correspondence.

Improved Form Design

Businesses and organisations often use printed forms to record and collect critical information. We have all had experiences with poorly designed forms where it can take more time than is necessary to complete. I can help you update and improve your forms to maintain the smooth running of your business and effective relationship with your customers.

Digital (PDF) Forms

Many form-filling exercises can use digital forms (smart PDF files) to increase accuracy, save time and minimise resources used. If you would like to see how digital forms could enhance your business please contact us today.
