A compliment slip contains the same or very similar information to a letterhead such as a business logo, brand, telephone number and company address, website and email. You would typically find a salutation such as "with compliments" or "with thanks" and space for a personal, hand written message from the sender.
Often used when sending out brochures, free samples or similar and have the advantage over a formal letter as they give the sender the opportunity to add a more personal touch by leaving a hand written message. They are also significantly cheaper then the latter.

The simplest way to design a compliment slip, is to take the artwork for the letterhead, and simply remove the blank bit. It doesn't get much easier than that. Doing this, keeps the brand and logo, and the footer intact. Laying out the letterhead, next to the compliment slips, they should be an exact match, except for the missing blank part.
Like letterheads, they tend to be lithographically printed rather than digitally as letterheads are usually required to go back through your office printer. This however is not the case for compliment slips as they are usually written on by hand. This means low quantities can be printed digitally (50 and 100 units)
