'Lock' letterhead header and footer in place on Word doc.

Hi, As the title states I'm creating some business letter templates with a company letterhead and footer and would like to know the easiest way to lock them in place so that when a user edits the document or deletes all it's contents they stay in place.  Please see attached example of a doc.  Thanks.

You want to insert it into the header field.  See below for instructions:

I've also attached the example.
Assign the document as read-only.

Right click on the document then go to properties. At the bottom you should see the file attributes. Check the read-only option and then click ok. This should force your users to save the document as a different file.
Or save the file as a document template. When the user attempts to save it, it will do a Save As instead of a save, asking them to create a new file.
