    Bespoke means they're made each time. So if someone asks "what's your delivery timescale?" the company would have an FAQ to answer that, rather than writing a new answer each time. But if you're asked "what are the contents of your fridge" then this is going to vary on a day-to-day basis, so you'll need to check and prepare a new answer.

    So that's one of your uses - you'd use it when there isn't an already prepared document in place.

    But each company will have its own rules for layout, style etc (this is already explained in the megathread if you're not sure) so you need to ensure that your bespoke document still meets those standards. This is where things like templates and style guides come into use. If you're writing a letter as a bespoke document, you might have a template that shows exactly where the logo goes, where the addresses go etc. Or you might just have a guide that says "you must use Comic Sans in size 20". But either way, when you're creating the document you need to adhere to the template/guide.

    One type of bespoke document is an invoice. This is an official bill. So obviously it needs to look professional, or the person paying it is going to assume it isn't real/is a scam. You could lose your company a lot of money if the bills go unpaid.

    When you use bespoke documents, you still need to ensure that you adhere to rules and regulations (such as the DPA). The fact that it's a bespoke document rather than a pre-made one doesn't negate these regulations. So a use of bespoke documents is to make sure that you use them legally and following all corporate regulations.

    You would make sure that you use them to meet the requirements/answer the question. You have to use them accurately and get everything right first time. If you are using templates, you need to ensure that the template is fully modified - you don't want to leave any "*insert text here*" or generic information.
