A letter heading is a printed heading that states an organisations or person’s name and logo. They will also include the address somewhere on the page as well. It is the default design that would end up being used for all of its letters. Having a professional look, keeping it clear and well organised will make a good letter heading design. The letter heading will have a white background, most likely, so the logo and colours need to stand out from the white background.
