A high quality printed stationery package gives your business a unified, professional look. Here are some tips to help you use your stationery in ways you might not have thought of -- to get the most bang for your stationery printing dollar!
# Make your letterhead go further. Just the company logo at the top gives you the freedom to use the same letterhead for different departments or different people.
# Use your letterhead for more than just letters. If you don't have money in your budget for things like receipts and invoices, you can use your basic printed letterhead as the base for your in-house printed receipts and invoices. Use your letterhead for company memos, sales letters, advertising proposals, and more.
# Make sure your mailing list is up to date! Don't waste envelopes and letterhead sending mailings to people who have moved or to addresses that aren't correct.
# Always ask your printer for samples. Before you even hand in your company logo, your printer can show you a variety of paper types, font options, and colours. Once you've picked the basics, you'll get another sample (called a proof) for you to review. This is the one you need to check with an eagle-eye -- make sure all contact information is correct, all names are spelled correctly, and everything is exactly the way you want it.
# Always print a test before preparing your whole mailing. Just like you ask your printing company for a proof of your stationery printing, you should always print out a sample of any letters, advertising, or marketing materials you'll be sending out. Otherwise, you may discover a mistake once you've printed out a hundred copies of your sales letter -- that's a hundred new pages for your scrap paper pile.
# Don't immediately go with the least expensive stationery printing company. Think about what's really important -- like the quality of the finished product and the quality of customer service. Do you want a stationery printing company that will give you lots of options, money-saving advice, and the benefit of years of experience? A skilled printer with a good eye for professional presentation, will be of more benefit to your company, than a few bucks saved on your stationery printing.
# Found a great deal online? Watch the shipping cost. Less than honest folks may offer products at a low price with ridiculously high shipping charges.
# Make new employees feel welcome with a set of printed stationery! A gift of professionally printed stationery will get your new team members excited about filling the empty pages with marketing ideas and sales pitches.
# Don't rule out stationery as a gift for friends and family. If someone you know is celebrating a milestone -- a graduation, important birthday, religious event, or wedding -- a set of custom printed cards will be handy to use for thank you notes.
