Consider These Factors When Ordering Corporate Stationery


While there's nothing wrong with your business printing its letters and other documents on plain white paper, using custom stationery can look a lot more professional. Some companies take a simple approach to the design of their stationery, using their name and address at the top of the page. This idea serves its purpose to some degree, but you can get a lot more creative when you're ordering custom corporate stationery from a company that specializes in commercial printing. Here are some factors to think about when you're choosing your design.

Use Of Color

Using some color on your corporate stationery can give it a much more vibrant look, helping it to stand out from other companies' stationery. If your business uses a particular color in the majority of its branding materials, you'll want to use this exact color on your stationery. A simple design is to have a line in the appropriate color at the top of the page. If you want to incorporate this color more into the design, you might consider using it to create a thin frame around the page's perimeter.


There's nothing wrong with incorporating an image into your corporate stationery design, provided that you do it the right way. You want the image to augment the look of the page, rather than be so visually dominant that it takes away from the content that you print. You can use all sorts of images, including your company's logo. Having it appear on the top of the page next to your name, URL, and street address can be a simple and effective design. Alternatively, if you have a landscape-oriented photo that you can crop to be narrow, it might be suitable as the background of the upper part of the page.


A lot of people put their entire stationery design on the upper part of the page, but it's also possible to use a small part of the page's bottom. Ask your commercial printing company to show you examples of corporate stationery that effectively use the bottom of the page. While your most important details should appear at the top of the page, some additional information might be suitable at the bottom. For example, you might simply choose to have your company's motto appear below a thin line at the bottom of the page. Consider these points when you order corporate stationery from a commercial printing service.

Choosing Printers Wisely

When you start shopping for a new printer, they all look the same. However, after you pick one and take it home, another story unfolds.

On my blog, you will find everything you need to know about printing and shopping for devices, so that you can avoid undue hassles of your own.
