Add light-weight, high-quality backgrounds to your text documents
If you have a template with your letterhead in it, it’s a hassle to print documents on housestyle pre-printed paper.
Templates without letterhead can’t be emailed. They don’t look right and miss contact info.
If you print a document including the letterhead on blank paper, the output quality may not be up to your standards. Besides, even simple PDFs grow to many MBs, which is not ideal for digital transmission, distribution nor archiving.
Adjusting printer settings to use the right trays for the right pages is also consuming precious time. Tired of all the hassle?

No more duplicate source versions
Only save one single editable source version. Do not save editable versions with and without letterhead. Instead, export the document to PDF and apply a letterhead if you need to email or archive it. This means: no more duplicates with last minute edits in either one of both versions.
Ideal for both email and printing on stationery

Apply a different letterhead for the first page
Many offices use multi tray printers: for blank, for first page letterhead, for second page letterhead. The digital letterhead simulates two trays: page 1 gets your full letterhead, page 2-xx (consecutive pages) get your second page letterhead.

Use your design stationery as it was intented
We repeatedly got a question that sounds simple but can’t easily be solved in an office environment: “Can you help us to create small PDFs from our correspondence in our corporate house style?” Now this has to do with manipulating graphics. We see lawyers and accountants are actually printing their letters on corporate stationary sheets, only to scan them in again and email them!
Other solutions, like embedding the graphics in templates, mostly results in blurred texts and too heavy PDFs. It’s what you see in most invoices. These are considered low-interest correpondence (Really!).
