The rules for a striking letterhead are similar to that of a business card. In regards to paper choice, print type and finishing.
A couple other tips I would consider is using a laser safe conqueror paper – meaning that you can drop your letterheads direct into your laser printer feeder tray without fear of ruining the letterhead or destroying your machine. Always worth speaking to your printer about how you’re going to use the letterheads as we can test them, get samples and mock ups made to ensure that the letterheads are not only beautiful but useable too.
Anyway, I digress, back to the design. Here at Monaco Print we were born from design and creativity. So it would be neglect to not start with your logo, branding and guidelines.
