The letterhead design for colleges, departments, and units prominently features the Iowa State wordmark. A slightly different letterhead design is available for university affiliates. Use of the modifier of Science and Technology is optional. To determine whether or not to use the modifier, see the wordmark modifier section of this website. To present a unified appearance, choices regarding use of the modifier, color and paper stock should be applied consistently throughout all stationery used within a unit.
No other logos are permitted on university letterhead, as they detract from the wordmark and dilute the university’s image. As Iowa State is a public institution that receives state tax dollars, personal names/contact information are not appropriate for inclusion on university letterhead. Instead, contact information can be included with the specific letterhead message or the person’s business card can be included with the letterhead. University stationery may not be used for personal matters or non-university business.
Iowa State letterhead must be ordered from Printing Services. Please note, the layout below has been updated to reflect the new campus addressing.
