    Before you say anything, I know, I know!!!! Microsoft Word is pants!
    Anyway, I'm a graphic designer and use CS suite for my layout work. I recently designed a letterhead for a client of mine who now wants the same design on a Microsoft Word document so he can email documents to customers...
    Does anyone know Microsoft Word enough to do this for me? I know it's not a big job, but I never use the package.

    I have 2x letterheads that need doing.

    I'd appreciate if you could email me with a price

    Many thanks

    Can't you just save the images in high res and pop them in the header and footer of word as embedded images?

    EDIT: Sorry just read that you don't use Word, I think it's pretty easy to do although I don't use Word either, sorry.

    When we deal with the same issue we advise our clients the following:

    We show the client how to produce a pdf of their word document and then how to embed the letterhead design as a background layer via Adobe Acrobat. This way the letterhead design appears as it should!

    I hope that this helps.

    Hi Jamie

    I was asked for the samething a few weeks ago, its easy enough.

    Save your design as a jpeg & insert the image into word.

    Scale to the correct size & send to the image to the back.

    Create a new text box over the Letterhead design & start typing.

    Job done.

    Hi Guys,

    I have created my letterhead design in illustrator cs3 but cannot for the life of me get it into a word document for my client without loosing its quality. I have tried inserting into the header as a emf, pdf and ai file but the quality from the vector illustration just diasappears.

    This is just a really simple design logo top left corner and the address top right, what am i doing wrong?????

    Any help is truly appreciated...

    As the others said, you need to save it out as a jpeg, 300dpi, 210mm wide, including the white space. At least that's the method I like - it fixes everything on the page and stops them fiddling. Then insert it into the header.
