Why Use a Premium Letterhead Stationery Template? 

"Free" is everyone's favorite price tag. But keep in mind that free doesn't necessarily mean fast or simple. Sometimes, a premium template is actually a huge time saver. Saving time can often equate to saving money, too.

When you download a free template, it's rare to find an exact fit for what you're looking for. So, you should likely set some time aside for customizations. It's also a good idea to set time aside for browsing and testing out your free finds. Again, this is a time sink.

black and white aesthetic stationery
Black and white aesthetic stationery can be both sophisticated and versatile for your design needs, like we see in this premium design template.

When you go premium, it's so much faster to find what you need. Not only that, premium items often come with extended options, documentation, help files, and more. The usage and licensing also tend to be clearly defined and even expansive if you need that. These options aren't guaranteed with a free template.

 Think about it for a moment. Let's say you grab a template from GraphicRiver for $5. Then your project is done and ready in a snap, versus spending hours finding, testing, troubleshooting, and customizing a free find. That's time you could have invested elsewhere.

5 Quick Tips To Make Professional B&W Aesthetic Stationery Letterhead Designs in 2020

Did you find the perfect letterhead stationery template for your project? Or maybe you've decided to try designing some black and white aesthetic stationery of your own. 

Here are some quick design tips to help you customize or create your own stationery letterhead designs:

1. Contrast Commands Attention

Black and white, as an aesthetic, has the benefit of contrast. Not sure what contrast is? Think of it like light and dark. 

For example, if we had two shades of gray next to each other they might not look all that different. They'd blend together. Black and white has a lot of contrast. So, the difference feels really visually striking.

We can use this to our advantage when working with our letterhead design. In the premium example below, notice how the black top really stands out against the white bottom.

Contrast can really command attention when working with black and white aesthetic stationery designs—premium design template from Envato Elements.

2. Think About Versatility

Your letterhead stationery is likely part of a larger branding initiative. For example, maybe you've got business cards and envelopes, or you intend to have a resume design too. Keep these other pieces in mind. If you don't already have those designed, you can potentially use your letterhead stationery in more than one way.

In the example below, notice how the letterhead has been adapted to work as both a cover letter and a resume design. We could also take this design and adapt it to work as a business card. Maybe we could use the same font, for example, on our envelope. Similarities like this help build a visually consistent presentation.

A strong letterhead stationery design can be adapted to meet many of your professional design needs, as seen in this premium design template.

3. Get Creative With Typography

What fonts will you use in your letterhead stationery? Typography can prove to be a really fun and creative part of your composition. You could, for example, use it as a focal point like we see in this premium design, below. 

Keep in mind that your type choices can be really communicative. A decorative font, for example, might prove to be more playful than a formal font. Make choices that work with your design objectives.

4. Consider Grayscale Too

Black and white can be a perfect aesthetic, but sometimes working with shades of gray can prove to be a strong direction too. Check out this premium example, below. In this case, the designer decided to heavily rely on light gray and dark gray.

Think about how white might look on this composition too. It could really pop against the different gray values. Will you consider using gray in your letterhead design? Or will you stick to strictly black and white? 

grayscale aesthetic stationery
Grayscale aesthetic stationery can also be a visually interesting approach, when working in black and white. This premium design template is a great example.

5. Consider Other Elements of Art and Principles of Design

Black and white, as an aesthetic, isn't necessarily limited. We still have a host of design principles and art elements we can use in our designs. For example, in the design below, shape is used to create interesting texture at the top of the composition. It's a set of repeated shapes, but when we see it at large it gives us a sense of texture.

Where you place items in your composition, as well what values you choose, can really make a big impact. Imagine, for example, these same repeated shapes in a lighter value. It would make for a more subtle look.

A limited color palette doesn't necessarily limit design principles. Experiment with shape, texture, and more in your letterhead stationery design to create interest, like we see in this premium template.
