Create your own letterhead in OpenOffice.

Seen as a free alternative to commercial software such as Microsoft Office, OpenOffice includes productivity software such as a word processor, spreadsheet creator and presentation designer. You can perform many of the same functions with OpenOffice that you could with Word, with the additional benefits of open-source software. With minimal effort, you can design customized letterhead in OpenOffice.
