Stationery File Guidleines

A stationery file must be a PDF. It can not be a simple image or a Word document.

The page size of the stationery file should match exactly the page size of the form you are producing.

    • If you are producing a letter sized bid sheet, then the stationery PDF must be letter sized as well.
    • If you have reduced the page size, for example toproduce a booklet format catalog, then you must also use matching statement size stationery.

The top and bottom margins for a stationery file specify the distance parameters, so as to keep the form within the top and bottom edges.

    • Make sure when specifying the margins, you set the correct units, either in inches or centimeters.

You can not adjust the left and right margins on most forms, so stationery files tend to work best when they just provide content at the top and/or bottom of the page.

Content that appears white on the page, such as the background of the bid sheet's grid, is typically not transparent. So if your stationery file has a background image for example, then it won't show through in these spots.
