Stationery items play an important role in communicating a consistent image. Proper use of the corporate identity elements and adherence to these guidelines will ensure consistency from one administrative unit to another and convey the desired university visual identification.
The printing of stationery for use by offices of The University of Texas at Austin should be governed by the following:
A. Only administrative offices, academic departments, and established centers which have been approved through appropriate administrative channels shall have their own stationery.
B. The names of individuals may not be included in the text of stationery printed at State expense. However, the names of individual faculty and administrative officials, and, as appropriate, endowed position title, office telephone number, fax number and other electronic mail address information may be added by means of laser printer or other printing technology to official stationery as the stationery is being used. The format design for this information is described below. Stationery not printed at State expense may include this individual information in the printed text but care should be exercised to avoid preparing large quantities of stock that may become obsolete.
C. The basic format for all stationery used by University offices shall be the design adopted in March 1984. The stationery shall be printed on white UT Austin watermark paper stock with The University seal printed to the left. The seal and the rule may be printed in orange if so desired and if funds permit. For bulk mailings, the stationery may be printed on white stock without the UT Austin watermark.
The type arrangement shall be in the following order:
Major division of the institution (i.e., a college or school or other major administrative division)
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN
Title of the subdivision of The University (i.e., a department within a college or another unit within a major division)
Address (including the expanded zip code when appropriate)
Telephone number (including area code)
As may be desired and as appropriate, information specific to individual faculty and administrative officials may be included. The preferred location for this information is at the left margin below the text of items 1-6 in the following order: name, endowed position title, telephone number, fax and/or electronic mail addresses. (See the sample copy of letterhead.)
D. The basic format for an envelope should contain The University seal and three lines type. The seal and rule may be printed in orange if desired.
E. When orange is to be utilized, the shade is to correspond to the samples available through the UT Printing Division and the Office of University Publications.
F. It is recommended that official stationery be printed at The University Printing Division. A sample copy of letterhead stationery and envelope is attached.
