Earlier this week, I had the need to write a letter. But a nice letter, not a “I cannot believe the level of service your company has provided and I’m VERY unsatisfied with the results…”, etc. letter. (THOSE are the actual letters I normally write, but oftentimes I need to write a NICE letter!)
I got to thinking about it, and, although I’ve already designed many of our correspondence supplies (CLICK HERE), I hadn’t designed an actual household letterhead. Do YOU have a letterhead or a stationary for your family?
Considering I’ve designed multiple business stationary products for various companies, I figured it would be fairly easy. Until I decided I wanted it to be monogrammed.
That’s where I got stuck.
I don’t know all the “appropriate etiquette” and “proper rules” for monogramming. I didn’t know what else to do, other than pick a pretty font and play with the sizes of letters. That just seemed…ridiculous. So what did I do? I Googled it! And LOOK at what I found!!! CLICK HERE! Gotta love Wedding Chicks!
So I made my own! And here’s what I came up with:
It’s not a TRADITIONAL monogram, no, but I LOVED it!
I chose these colors because they are what our current address labels are styled in…and so they also match the note cards I designed for us to use, as well.
All I did was drop this into a blank Word Document, and then I added a line for our address at the bottom, so it looks like this:
No, that’s not our real address. You didn’t think I would actually give it to you, did you? Ha!
Then I picked up some whiter heavier paper and printed us up some letterhead! (I just used my regular ink-jet printer)
Now, whenever we are in need of correspondence materials, we have notecards and letterhead! Oh, it just makes me happy inside. And makes my husband shake his head and laugh at me. That’s okay. If he ever needs a letter himself, there will be no more laughing!
What kind of correspondence materials do you use in your home?
