PLACING LETTERHEAD DESIGN INTO WORD

How can i place a letterhead into Word so it appear as the background for writing and formatting letters.

It is in .pdf format so i may need to place into PSP or something else to convert perhaps ?

If you want it to appear in the document, but are printing to pre-printed stationery, you will need to create a section in your document that is protected for forms, and then set the print options to print the data only, not the form background

Once you've converted the PDF file (I'd suggest WMF if you can but depends how complex it is) you could insert it as a picture into the header of the document.  Search for Watermark in Help for more information on this.

If the letterhead isn't that complicated you could maybe copy the design and save it as a template.

The letterheaded paper itself has the colour scheme printed on at. i.e. A4 sheet with a 1cm colourband down one side and a logo embossed on the other half. Thus i want the whole page to appear as the letter headed paper, and it would not look or do the right job in the header bar alone.

Pobably the simplest way then is to get some pre-printed paper made up and use that.  You should be able to go to a printing house and get it done for a reasonable amount of money.  In the long run it could be cheaper becuase you're not spending money on coloured ink and the result will look more professional as well.

They should also be able to deal with all kinds of postscipt files including PDF.

By the way, Protecting a document for forms isn't recommended.  The reason being is that it isn't very flexible when dealing with different paragraphs.

What you could do instead is set the margins in page setup so that document text is within your border.

Hope this helps.

There must be a component within the Office Developers Edition to actually insert a 'letter head' as the background.

That way you can just align your text accordingly around it. Almost like the powerpoint templates etc. Thus allowing you to print onto your office letterhaed.

The main question here i think is how do you import the .pdf as a word template.
