In this digital world, one might expect printed anything to be passé at best, if not outright obsolete. But stationery design is still a thing. Despite the ubiquity of e-whatever, there’s no digital substitute for a physical business card for capping off a professional introduction.
That said, digital is making inroads into the stationery design space with digital letterhead and email signature design. Company Man Design has provided large and small organizations print and digital stationery products for years.
Business cards are inexpensive to produce and pack a lot of information into an easily transportable format. They also remain objects of pride for business owners and employees alike. Additionally, the party handing them to prospective clients will be present for the reaction they will inevitably evoke.
Stationery sets can include as little as business cards alone or can include any or all of the following: letterhead, folders, note cards, branded pencils and pens, envelopes, and much more. It’s less of a set thing than a loose grouping of types of designed pieces that focus primarily on establishing corporate identity.
Digital Stationery Products
Stationery now includes digital products, most commonly digital letterhead and email signatures. Other digital stationery products include desktop iconography, intranet graphics—graphics to brand proprietary system screens, etc.—and more.
