Make Your Own Letterhead!

Earlier this week, I had the need to write a letter. But a nice letter, not a “I cannot believe the level of service your company has provided and I’m VERY unsatisfied with the results…”, etc. letter. (THOSE are the actual letters I normally write, but oftentimes I need to write a NICE letter!)

I got to thinking about it, and, although I’ve already designed many of our correspondence supplies (CLICK HERE), I hadn’t designed an actual household letterhead. Do YOU have a letterhead or a stationary for your family?

Considering I’ve designed multiple business stationary products for various companies, I figured it would be fairly easy. Until I decided I wanted it to be monogrammed.

That’s where I got stuck.

I don’t know all the “appropriate etiquette” and “proper rules” for monogramming. I didn’t know what else to do, other than pick a pretty font and play with the sizes of letters. That just seemed…ridiculous. So what did I do? I Googled it! And LOOK at what I found!!! CLICK HERE! Gotta love Wedding Chicks!

So I made my own! And here’s what I came up with:

Creating Your Own Notecards

I’m a HUGE card-sender. I have been ever since I can remember. Someone’s sick? I send a get-well card. Someone lost a family member? I send a sympathy card. You get the idea. Although I love technology and all it has to offer (phone calls, emails, Facebook, etc.), I think there’s a lot to be said for going to the mailbox and pulling out an actual hand-written note from someone who cares about you.

My favorite little “thinking of you” notecards come from Hallmark, but hello, Hallmark gets expensive sometimes! And there are even times when you just don’t like “the look” of what’s in stock when you’re in the store.

So when I ran out this time, I decided to make my own!

I’ve really been liking the Chevron patterns here recently. At first, I’ll admit, I thought they were ugly. But they’ve grown on me! You know the ones I’m talking about?
