I'm trying to make my own letter heading paper.
I've created some artwork, stuck the bits onto an A4 sheet, copied that and then (with Word) created the text (name, address etc.) and printed that onto the copied sheet of artwork. So, now I have exactly what I want but how do I make that into a Word document that I can then use everyday as letter paper?
Have tried scanning (HP C4280) and saving it to Preview, because nothing else seemed to work, although I did have lots of choices. Printed that off but it was really laborious.
I've probably done everything in the wrong way, so if anyone can help I would be grateful.

Just a shot in the dark here, but have you tried Scanning artwork & text to Neo Office on the Mac?
I've played with Neo Office a little, it should handle artwork and text documents.
Not sure if it will import from a scanner though.
But it's free.

Hey laturb!

Maybe you could try making a template? Make sure all of the uneeded text isn't there when you create it. And use this link to help you.

I hope this helps you. :thumbsup: Good luck!
