Partners Letterhead Template in Microsoft Word
Here, we demonstrate how to
properly create a "partners" letterhead template. With this method, we place
names on the left-hand side of the first page. When you go to the second page,
whether because you kept typing and an automatic page break occurs, or because
you manually insert a page break or next-page section break, your second page
doesn’t have to contain your logo.
We demonstrate how to properly
place names of partners or principles in the left- or right-hand columns, and
how to make the different margin settings that such a layout requires. Click
here to go right to that special layout.
Follow the instructions for
Creating a Letterhead Template, with the
following minor changes, when you need to have a list of persons or
organizations on the left- or right-hand side of your letterhead. Law firms and
CPA firms often use these layouts.
In another document, type the
partners name in a list inside of a text box that you create from the Drawing
toolbar. If you don’t see that toolbar at the bottom of your screen, choose ViewàToolbars
from the menu, and click Drawing.
Tip. Click on the Text Box
toolbar button and draw a text box the approximate width you’ll need for the
names. Type the names into it. If you are using organization names that are
lengthy, consider making them two lines, but using line breaks instead of
paragraph returns within the names, then use paragraph returns between names.
Then, choose all the names and hit FormatàParagraph, and put 3 in the Space
Before and Space After boxes. This provides slight spacing between the names,
but not between the lines on names that take more than one line. If you have
difficulty setting up the names, keep the text box in a document in a safe place
in case something changes.
Select the border of the text
box, and hit Ctrl+X to cut it from the page.
From the menu, choose ViewàHeader
and Footer. Then EditàPaste Special. Choose
Picture (JPEG) and hit OK.
Your letterhead should look
something similar to the picture below.
Now, double-click the picture
(it’s no longer a text box, remember?) and, on the Layout tab, format it to have
Square text wrapping. Did you notice that you just created your “special" margin
for the first page only?
Your document should look
something like the picture below.
If your margin isn’t large
enough, go back into the Header and Footer and double-click the graphic. Go to
the Layout tab and choose the Advanced button. Choose Square text wrapping
again, and type a larger value into the Distance from text box marked Right
until the spacing is suitable.
All other settings are similar to
the “regular" Letterhead Template described
