# A clean letter class for office use, including serial letters

I'm using LaTeX for writing corporate letters, including serials letters. To incorporate our organization's logo, back address and so on I put a single A4-sized PDF containing all this information into the background using the dinbrief class:

\documentclass[11pt]{dinbrief}
...

\setbottomtexttop{270mm}  % x from top of page
\bottomtext{\kern27mm%    % y from bottom of page; x+y=297mm = DIN A4 height
\vbox to 0pt{\vss\hbox to 0pt{\kern-2.5cm

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{Prof. Drov Nuts\\St. Anford}
..
\end{letter}
\end{document}


This seems somewhat hackish. Is there an alternative for a clean letter style? Most letter styles I've seen try to use LaTeX for placing fancy logos and back addresses which I think are much better included from a single nicely designed PDF. Are there any classes supporting this idea?

Edit: PDF letterhead as document background seems relevant here.

I looked at the manual and while the class seems flexible it also seems to demand an existing layout to be decomposed into several images before they can be included in the background (Kapitel 4). Does scrlttr2 support languages other than German? – Christian Lindig Feb 4 '11 at 20:04
