Design your letterhead
Letterheads are personal, and can be designed any way you like. In your letterhead, you can include:
- Company logo
- Company information
- Visual designs (images) for your corporate identity
Rentman tip: We recommend designing your letterhead using software like Microsoft Word, Google Sheets or Canva. Microsoft Word has standard paper sizes in most versions and you can enter your logo, company information, and corporate identity designs directly in the right spot on the page.
When you're done, save your design as a .PDF file.
