A letterhead is the heading at the top of a sheet of letter paper (stationery). That heading usually consists of a name and an address, and a logo or corporate design, and sometimes a background pattern. The term "letterhead" is often used to refer to the whole sheet imprinted with such a heading.
Many companies and individuals prefer to create a letterhead template in a word processor or other software application. This generally includes the same information as pre-printed stationery but without the additional costs involved. Letterhead can then be printed on stationery (or plain paper) as needed on a local output device or sent electronically.
The majority of company letterheads are printed A4 in size (210 mm x 297 mm). 
Letterhead size is typically 8.5 x 11 inches.
