    [non-designers] Do you produce your own stationery? If so, what software do you use? Are the results good enough?

    I used to

    use a MS template for the letterheads. They were servicable but a bit dull and certainly not original.

    However, after being admonished by more and more people for being a cheapskate, I have now gone really posh, had some professionally designed by a client and had them die-stamped, I think it's called, where there is a combination of royal blue ink and shiny gold leaf.

    Far better quality than my humble colour laser printer could produce and they impress everyone who sees them.

    The same goes for business cards. I used to print my own until a client pointed out that my business was better served promoting it with a really professional image and much thicker cards than I could put through my printer. Hence my order from creative in colour on this forum.

    The test I was given was a touch test. She told me to close my eyes and feel my old card and speak out loud what the quality felt like. I ordered some "proper" ones that very day :)
