Making a professional letterhead for your business is a great way to give your documents a polished look. It can also add a personal touch to a letter or email. With Google Docs, you can create a letterhead in just a few minutes.

In this guide, we will show you how to make a custom letterhead in Google Docs using premade templates and by using the Header feature.

How to Insert a Letterhead in Google Docs

Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to insert a letterhead in Google Docs.

Step 1

First, head to and click on the Template gallery button on the homepage.

Step 2

Scroll down until you see the Letters section. Select one of the default templates that contains a letterhead you want to use.

You can now use the letterhead in the template and modify with your own personal or professional details.

Step 3

We can also create a letterhead from scratch. We’ll start by opening a new Google Docs document.

Step 4

In the Insert menu, click on Headers & footers > Header.

Step 5

Paste the logo of your company into the header to add it as a letterhead.

Step 6

We can also use tables in our header to organize our letterhead.

In this example, we’ll use a two-cell table to hold the company logo on the left and the company address on the right.

Step 7

We can remove the borders to make the letterhead more professional. Right-click on the table and click Table properties.

Set the table border to 0 pt.

The letterhead should now have transparent borders.
