If you feel the crunch then the more reason why you should find ways to cut your expenses. However, a tight budget does not mean that you cannot have letterheads for your business. There are several things you can do to reduce your expenses in letterhead printing.

Read the following tips on how you can cut costs on your letterhead printing:

Get rid of your graphic designer. More often than not, the fee for your graphic designer eats a big chunk out of your budget so the best way to cut down on costs is to sack your designer. So how would you be able to do your project then? Do it yourself.

Yes, graphic designers are trained to create visually appealing letterheads than can communicate your company’s image. They do this by getting to know your company, its products or services or its public image. But why do you have to engage them when you yourself know what image you want to project? Hence, there is no better person to design your letterhead printing than you.

Sure, you know what image you want to establish but you do not have any artistic ability, read on and learn the next tip.

Consider templates. Many websites offer letterhead templates with fixed layouts. There are many sites that offer tutorials on how you can design a letterhead for your company. Templates are provided and all you have to do is to customize these templates to suit your company. If you do not want to use the templates, you can get ideas from them. Play around and try your own creativity. Explore the different fonts, colors and layout.

Settle for less quality paper.  Low end papers are likely to tear, wrinkle or smear but it does not mean that you have to settle with this. Instead, choose linen or fiber-stone stock. They’re of higher quality and tend to be more affordable. Remember to compare a variety of stocks, and don’t settle for anything less.

Use standard colors. Select standard colors for your letterhead printing. Customizing the color of the ink can drive up the cost, and since each color batch is hand mixed, shades can vary.

Avoid heavy graphics. Graphics and logos often require customized colors and additional ink, which can raise your bill. Avoid this by using a simple design without complicated graphics.

These tips are simple yet effective in driving down costs. Try them to survive this economic crunch. Stay afloat and find better ways of marketing your business.
