Sometimes you can’t help wondering how outdated some of the practices are, which the institutions around us follow. Company letterhead, for example. I wasn’t quite sure what the hell do banks need everything on a company letterhead for. I can understand the marketing aspect of it that you would want to write on a letterhead to your customers, vendors etc. But why does a bank need a resolution with director’s signature on a letterhead to open an account? I mean, isn’t the signature enough? I was quite puzzled as to what does a letterhead really mean other a word printout with company address on it. I called up my dad, who also works in a bank. And all he could say was that – well if there is a company, there should be a letterhead. It is an indication of the genuineness of the company. I was totally taken aback, but decided not to argue with him. What does it take to me to print a letter-head of Google, for God’s sake. A bit of ink from my cheap inkjet printer! So, anyway. I am giving them a printout with our address and logo in the header and footer. Hope that serves to show we are genuine company. We have a colour printer that is!
