What Kind Of Corporate Stationery Might You Need?

It’s so important for a business to make sure it’s got great corporate stationery.

It needs to be professional and it needs to be looked at and updated on a regular basis for fear of it becoming outdated and dull. Keep it fresh and make a lasting impression.

So what kind of corporate stationery might you need?

You can’t go wrong with the basics. And what we mean by that is a letterhead, a business card, compliment slips, invoices, invitations and more. Here’s a brief guide to what’s important and why:

Business cards

They have to be simple, yet creative. You don’t need to overdo it. It’s tempting to introduce too many colours and choose some outrageous designs. In the end it’s best to stick to what you know and reflect your company. This will be the first point of contact and can be a design you add to emails as well.


When you are sending correspondence in the mail then you want something to distinguish the paper for you. You can do this in two ways.. either with a letterhead or a watermark. This isn’t about designing a whole page. It’s about framing it to allow the accompanying content. So forget about clutter. Nothing should be overpowering. Whatever company information you need, make it clear and concise and readable.

Top Tip: Make sure you don’t size the letterhead more than a third of the page. As well as letters you can print invoices on these for ease.

Printed Envelopes

A luxury maybe, but they will certainly make an impression if that’s what you want to do.

Presentation folders

There are bound to be times when you need to present as a company or for your company. The best way to do this is with an A4 folder featuring your corporate identity. Something that you can use to hold you information, including the business card. This should compliment your business card. Think about where the logo might go. What sort of space you need for it. Unlike a letterhead, big is best.

Whatever it is, the look and feel of your business cards, compliment slips and letterheads is really important. Why? Because they say a lot about your business.
