Page 4: Stationery

Stationery has so many design options! But too often it ends up with a flat, centered alignment. You can be very free with placement on a piece of stationery - but remember alignment.

example 37

This isn't bad, but the centered layout is a little dull, and the border closes the space, making it feel confined.

 

example 37

A flush-left alignment makes the page a little more sophisticated. Limiting the dotted line to the left side opens the page and emphasizes the alignment.

 

example 37

The text is flush right, but placed on the left side. The letter you type will have a strong flush left to align with the flush right of this layout.

 

example 37

Be brave! Be bold!
