Customized Electronic Letterhead
Provided in MS Word – Color – For Electronic Purposes Only – Not for Print
Electronic letterhead design has been established for the convenience of attaching to an email or posting online. The electronic letterhead is provided by Printing Services in a Microsoft Word file with the same customized information as the official printed letterhead for individual departments.
It is strongly preferred that you use the full-color official printed stationery whenever possible. However, for budgetary reasons, we have created a black and white generic letterhead that is approved to print on your own printer. The generic letterhead is provided in a Microsoft Word file with only the main campus information and no customized individual department information. It is provided in black and white to minimize inconsistency in color from one printer to the next.
This version of the stationery was specifically developed to allow the campus to communicate internally and save money on printing costs. This allows departments to print on unofficial stationery paper, reducing the cost of letterhead for internal audiences.
The black and white generic letterhead is not intended for communication with potential and current CSUSB students. Whenever communicating with students, the official printed letterhead should be used. There should be as little variation as possible to the look of printed communications so that students feel CSUSB is one unified place.
If a department finds a need for customized black and white electronic stationery, contact CSUSB Printing Services for consideration.
It is highly recommended that electronic letterhead files be converted to secure/locked pdf files to ensure the legitimacy of the letter prior to attaching to an email or posting online.
Electronic Letterhead Usage Policy:
For the campus to maintain a unified visual identity, this electronic letterhead has been designed to complement the printed letterhead and is intended strictly for use as an electronic communication tool ONLY, and not for use as a printable format.
DO NOT PRINT electronic letterhead on desktop printers, laser printers or campus copiers of any kind. Only official campus letterhead should be used for hard-copy applications.
For hard-copy applications, please order official printed stationery from CSUSB Printing Services. Official printed stationery is printed with very specific color specifications that match the exact standards necessary to properly print on fine linen paper, which is 30 percent postconsumer recycled. Anything printed from desktop devices or from outside vendors will not match the official printed stationery and will deviate from the unified visual identity of the campus.
