What is business stationery?
Bespoke business stationery is an alternative communication tool which is necessary for running a business. From sending letters to leaving notes, there are loads of different ways corporate stationery can benefit a company. Here’s a quick rundown of what the different products are and how to use them.
- Letterheads – letterhead printing allows you to send a business letter that’s branded with your logo and important contact information, which is essential in many situations. Here’s what you’re legally required to include on a letterhead.
- Compliment slips – these slips are great for saying thanks. Add them to your order with a handwritten message to let customers know how grateful you are for their custom.
- Business cards – handing out a business card is still the quickest and most professional way of giving your contact details to someone.
- Note cards – otherwise known as correspondence cards, these small A6 cards are the perfect size for giving clients and customers handwritten notes because they also have your all-important contact info on them.
- Bookmarks – branded bookmarks are great giveaways and freebies. Pop them in packages or hand them out at events.
Why is it personalised office stationery important?
It’s nice to have branded stationery and it makes your business look really professional – but do you really need it? Absolutely!
Letterheads have many legal uses, for example ensuring your contact details are clear and available on legal notices – they’re also great for sending out those all important job offer letters and contracts on.
Business cards are essential, especially for business owners, because it’s the quickest and easiest way of giving someone your contact details. Sure, you could enter them in on your phone, but cards are a lot less clunky and new business contacts will expect you to have one.
Branding is critical to business growth because it helps bridge the gap between company and consumer. Your business stationery is a key part of this.
