Best way to print our own letterhead?
June 5, 2014 7:03 AM Subscribe
I work for a company that has many sub-companies (an LLC for each project, that sort of thing). We are re-designing our logo and need to reprint all of our letterhead. We have some that we use frequently, which I will be ordering from a commercial printer. We have others however that are used very infrequently (think 5-10 sheets a year or less). How can I best print our own letterhead for those very short runs?

For the rarely used category, I would normally just print the letterhead myself by just adding it to the document and printing the document all at once. I work with many people who would not be capable of doing that on their computers however, even with templates, or pre-formatted word documents. I need to have pre-printed letterhead available for them. I tried some tests on our laser printer and copier, printing only the logo and address first and running it through a second time for the rest of the document. As I expected, when I run the page through the second time on a laser printer the toner from the first printing gets picked up and redeposited elsewhere on the page.
Is there a particular style or model of printer I could buy that would allow me to print the letterhead so that it could be run through an office laser printer later? I suspect an ink-jet printer would work but I want to avoid the "look" of inkjet printed letterhead, but maybe there have been advances since I last printed on one. Any other ideas?
