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
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.
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.
