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 'File' at the menu bar and then click on 'Save As.' Name the document. Then, just below the file name is the dialogue, 'Save as type:'. Choose 'Document Template (*.dot).' You'll notice the directory at the top of the dialogue box changes to 'Templates.' Click 'Save' and you're done.
