Printing on Letterhead

(Instructions for MAC users to print on pre-printed letterhead are forthcoming)

Virtual Letterhead

Although regular paper letterhead is available, and it is possible to load it into a network printer and print a letter on it, a simpler option is to use a template that has been created to mimic letterhead, so you can print the file on regular paper, without loading anything into the printer, and have the resulting document appear as if it was printed on letterhead.

(Please note that these templates are currently only available to Members and Visitors in Historical Studies who are using an Institute owned office computer. If you are not using an Institute-owned computer please contact Alexis May, Gabriella Hoskin, Brett Savage or Marian Zelazny, to request a copy of a document that can also be used to mimic letterhead.)
