Create letterhead by using Microsoft Word

Applies to
Microsoft Word 2000

It's easy to create letterhead in Microsoft Word. Just insert information such as a company logo, name, and address into a template that you can reuse every time you write a letter. A quick way to get started is to modify an existing template on the Letters & Faxes tab in the New dialog box (File menu) that contains a basic letter design you can work with.

To create letterhead based on an existing template

  1. On the File menu, click New, and then click the Letters & Faxes tab.
  2. Click a template that is similar to the one you want to create.
  3. Under Create New, click Template, and then click OK.
  4. Make any modifications to the template that you want. For example, insert graphics, change font styles, or delete any text that you don't want to appear in your template.
  5. On the File menu, click Save As.
  6. In the File name box, type a name for the new template, and then click Save.
  7. On the File menu, click Close.
    If the Office Assistant asks whether you want to save the changes you've made, click Yes.

Once you create a letterhead template, use it by clicking New on the File menu, selecting the template, and then writing a letter.

 Tip   You can also create a template from scratch. On the File menu, click New, and then click the Blank Document icon. Under Create New, click Template, and then click OK.
