How to Create a Letterhead in Microsoft Word

Have you ever wanted to create a custom letterhead to impress clients? Or, maybe you’ve decided to set up a home business? Either way, you don’t need to order from a printer or graphic designer. This simple guide will show you how to create a professional letterhead in Microsoft Word without needing design skills.

I’ll use Microsoft Word for this step-by-step tutorial, which is included in Microsoft 365 (Previously called Office 365). I’ve also done a Google Docs letterhead as well. In addition, you can use a letterhead when doing a mail merge.

Informational & Design Elements

The key to the letterhead design is first to decide what you want to display. Although creating the template is simple, you should do some planning. I find it helps to take a blank sheet of paper and sketch my design. Nothing fancy as this is a mockup. This will help you choose the starting header. The good news is once you grasp the power of templates, you can make changes or use different versions.

The list of elements can vary based on whether you’re an individual, organization, or company. For example, if you’re doing a church letterhead, you might not have a slogan, or if you’re a professional law firm, you may not have social media addresses. To get you started, here are some items to consider:

  • Brand Logo
  • Slogan or tagline
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone numbers (office and cell)
  • Web address
  • Email address
  • Professional license numbers
  • Memberships and awards
  • Established date
  • Social media addresses

Once you’ve come up with the items to include, you should determine their placement. For example, I split my elements between Microsoft’s Word header and footer.
