The technicalities for understanding and creating artwork are skilled . . . particularly in some high complex print processes.

In this online age of emails . . . . . is a letterhead design still important?

Does anyone even use a letterhead design anymore?

Ok so you might not be posting letters very much at all . . . . .  you’re probably emailing them which means you might not be using the printed letterhead version . . . but
