Follow these 4 simple steps to design and prepare your Letterhead for print:

  1. Choose Letterhead size
    To design your Letterhead and prepare it for printing, select one of the available sizes at Cloudprinter.com.
  2. Set bleeds 
    Setting the bleeds is another important step while designing and preparing your Letterhead for print.
    Bleeds will keep your information safe, so don't forget to add 3 mm (0.125 in) at each side of your Letterhead and include all essential data within the limits of the bleeds.
  3. Select 1 or 2-sided print 
    When designing your Letterhead, choose which fits you better: single-sided or double-sided print.
    If you need to include several blocks of information on your Letterhead, then better go for double-sided printing.
    By contrast, if you want to keep the data on your Letterhead compact — choose the single-sided print. 
  4. Prepare Letterhead file for printing 

        - Set 300 DPI resolution
        - Choose RGB print 
        - Save the file in PDF/X-4

Well done! Now you can print your Letterhead all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
