Business Stationery Design

Regularly overlooked and often your Achilles heel as a result, business stationery can be a subtle yet highly effective way of getting your message across.

First Impressions Last.

Imagine you have just had a lengthy conversation with a keen customer and the sale is all but guaranteed.

‘Can I have your business card?’ they ask, to which you almost apologetically hand over a tatty, ugly piece of flimsy card.

Hard work undone? Afraid so – your business stationery design needs to be just as professional as you and your company or else it will always let you down.

Dare to be different.

If you’ve seen one letterhead you’ve seen them all, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

By being bold in your business stationery design you can make potential customers sit up and take note when they receive your direct mail.

Businesses still get stacks of mail every day so ensure yours stays top of the pile through a slick, attention-grabbing visual.

Say it with stock.

It goes without saying that budgets are tight, and one of the first things to be hit is stationery. Yes, printing on thinner paper is cheaper, however what does that say about you as a company?

Hardly a business on the up would be the assumption. If you can, try to use the best stock available as cheap stationery can speak volumes.

Your Stationery Design Process.

Four easy steps to better stationery.


The first step is always to get to know you and your business, so we understand your goals and your audience.


When the project is underway, we’ll present an initial working design with a rationale, and work with you to establish a design direction.

Once the overall design has been established, we go through 2 rounds of amends to get your stationery ready for print.


Once signed off, we'll send you over the print-ready files as required. We can also work with your printer should there be any special requirements.

Stay on brand.

Companies rightly focus their marketing efforts on high impact online and offline activity, essentially doing their utmost to increase sales.

These usually involve comprehensive branding exercises yet stationery can often get overlooked.

Consistency is key, so you’ll need to ensure that what a customer reads, watches or experiences is reflected in your business stationery.

Let's Get Started

Add some colour.

So many businesses opt for mono or two-colour approaches to their stationery as there is often the perception that this gives a more professional look (and it’s cheaper too).

But why not stand out from the crowd and inject some vibrancy into your compliments slips and some life into your business cards so you give yourself every chance of getting that sought-after brand recall?
