I have 2 or 3 templates that are setup for various tasks. One for
letters, one for school papers/reports, a slight alternate for the
latter<1>. And that's it.
I drop the text into the template, "compile" and turn in/email the
pdf. Very rarely I print off the pdf, stick it in an envelope, and
snail mail that.
I've been meaning to setup a letterhead template, but I haven't
gotten around to figuring out how to put graphics into a LaTeX file yet.
<1> Both of these include things like highlighted and working URLs,
footnote/biblio support, etc.
When I need to do something beyond these, then I'll dive back in to
my archives of the list and see what I can figure out.
