headed stationary attachment

  Smokeyone 19:34 21 Jul 2008


I wonder if someone could advise me please on how to send a letter on headed stationary as an attachment to an e-mail. At the moment I just send a letter on plain paper but was hoping there was a way of typing a letter on headed paper so when the recipient opens the attachment it has the company logo etc on the page.
I could scan our headed paper as a pdf but where do I go from there.
Thanks very much

If you are using 'Headed' paper in your printer simply set your print page setup to start further down the page by altering your margins etc.

Take a piece of headed paper and scan it to [or get it scanned]JPEG- so you now have a file- Company Name.JPEG
Save it in a place - a dedicated folder in my documents.
Now when you wish to create a new document simply begin by -starting a new document - go to 'Insert'put the cursor where you want it to be before clicking on Insert
find the file click.

Size it be pushing a corner,
Plant of practice required.

The best way is to reconstruct your stationary in Word, with the normally pre-printed parts in the header (and footer if you use a footer).

Then you save this as a Template.

You then call up the template and type onto it each time you write a letter. The template itself, of course, stays unchanged.

How easy it is to do the reconstruction depends on the complexity of the letterheading. I would normally tend to scan any graphics, but retype any text. You'll almost certainly find the correct font in Word.

I could advise further if you could post access to a letterhead, or you could email me on it via the yellow envelope next to my name if you wish.

Thanks all for the advice. Will have a go at the suggestions. May need to e-mail Die See if I get stuck.
Thanks again

Scan your letter heading and save it.
In Outlook Express click on Tools>Otions>Compose>Create new stationery, and follow the Wizard. Load in your scanned letter head and save as new stationery.
When you want to use it in an email click Format>Apply stationery>More stationery and choose your saved page.

I have each of the family with their own letterhead template in Microsoft Word as described by DieSSe. Each has a fold mark on an A4 sized document to fold twice to fit into a standard envelope. They have the address entry point set for a standard window envelope.
This is the easiest way to go.
