Stationery plays a key role in expressing the brand identity of the University, and in many instances will be the first introduction to the University.
Letter templates using the revised brand are now available for all University Administration and Services departments. Apart from the Vice-Chancellor’s letterhead, which uses pre-printed stationery, letter headings for users of the UAS network print on plain paper at the same time as the letter content. The design for this has been agreed with the University’s Equality and Diversity Unit following advice sought from a readability panel. This design includes the use of a sans serif typeface, Arial, at 11pt, with the contact details usually placed at the bottom of the letter.
This letter design is also available for adoption by other departments of the University and templates are available from the branding toolkit.
Postal (franking) stamp
Franking machines can be set up or programmed by the manufacturer (usually Pitney Bowes) to print the University brand as part of the franking process. The example below shows the approved style. If you have any queries please contact the Publications and Web Office.
Most franking machines are set up to print in red. This is acceptable even when using the University brand. However, a blue ink is the preferred colour.
