Letterhead printing is a staple piece of your business stationery, useful for any official documents, from invoices to employee contracts. We print our A4 letterheads on uncoated stock in paperweights of 90gsm, 120gsm and 160gsm and our 120gsm stock has the additional option of being made out of 100% recycled materials.
Orders of 500 or more will be printed lithographically which guarantees them for use with standard laser printers that most people will have in their offices and homes. Orders of less than 500 will be printed digitally and so won’t be laser printing guaranteed. Uncoated stock absorbs more ink than silk coated stock and so normal inks can appear washed out. To counteract this, we use LE UV inks which are cured instantly as the sheets come off the press and thus maintain the vibrancy of any colours.

Why a letterhead is essential
Include your company logo
Your company will have a logo for a reason. This image will define your brand or the service you provide, and will help customers to recognise you. So by putting your company logo on your business stationery, you’ll expose your brand and what you stand for, giving you greater brand awareness in the industry and among your customers.

Backs up your brand identity
Every company wants its customers to know that it offers the best service or the cheapest products. Your letterhead therefore needs to reinforce your brand message.
If your brand is all about providing a luxury, bespoke service, for example, you should ensure that your letterhead reflects this, whether that’s with a sleek design, or an interesting colour and font. Once you’ve earmarked the particulars, make sure to stick to them across all of your business’ communication for coherency.
Shows authority and legality
Not only does your company letterhead show who you are and helps to identify your brand; it should also be used for all official documentation. It reinforces your brand’s authority and gives the remainder of the letter credibility.
