But first, let's learn how to create a business letterhead in Word. You only need two things: Microsoft Word and a ready graphic, preferably not wider than 5 inches and higher than 2. In other words, not larger than 5x2 inches. This is, of course, ideal but not necessarily set in stone. Let's begin. Fire up your MS Word. I'm using MS Word 2003 and you might have a different version, but I believe there is not much difference.
Click on the the template. At the bottom right of the dialogue you'll see two options: 'Document' and 'Template'. If you want to use the letterhead to send as a document or letter, choose 'Document.' If you want to edit the template, choose 'Template.' When you choose 'Document,' it gets saved as an MS Word document.
