FWIW, my rule of thumb is that if it's not a job for a text editor
(NoteTab Light or Notepad++ on Windows, GEdit on Ubuntu), and it's not
a letter, then it's a job for LyX. The only reason I don't use LyX
for letters is that our office stationary has boilerplate in both the
top margin and the left margin, and I've yet to see a LaTeX class that
would accommodate both. So I keep a rusty copy of WordPerfect around
for that (and for opening old WP files, of course).
It's fairly easy to put together the LaTeX needed to do such stationary.
I've got a LaTeX package I use for my own letters, and there are so many
such things around that it's easy to adapt them. Adapting them to LyX is
of course just a matter of tweaking the relevant layout file.
