A few notes…
Save the finished file as a PDF file for better printing results. Printing directly from a Microsoft Word document can have mixed results.
The colors in your Microsoft Word letterhead template will display the colors slightly differently than the original design. In creating the template, the trick is to get its colors as close to the original design as possible – they simply won’t display the exact same way no matter what, and are bound to look different when printed.
Microsoft Word has a lot of disadvantages and is simply not on par with other more advanced graphic-editing programs, but you already know that.
Hope this helps.
