Stationery System Print Standards

Stationery items are an important part of the Iowa State University brand standards. Consistency in design, use of color, and typography is essential as these materials help project a strong, unified image of the university with a variety of audiences. Stationery items include buckslip, business card, envelope, interoffice memo, letterhead, notecard, and notepad.

All Iowa State stationery items are printed by Printing Services. Stationary should not be printed from outside vendors as they do not have the official specifications and the reproduction quality will vary between printer.

University stationery may not be used for personal matters or non-university business. Registered student organizations do not conduct official university business and may not use university stationery. The Student Government is the only exception. No other logos are permitted on university stationery, as they detract from the wordmark and dilute the university’s image.
