Official Kennesaw State University stationery is purchased through a state contract, managed by the Office of Procurement and Contracting. The contract has been negotiated to provide lower costs and standardize information that’s aligned with the university’s visual identity. The printing of stationery through other sources, whether internal or external to the university, is prohibited as it violates the parameters of the state-awarded contract.
All colleges, departments, programs and administrative units are required to use the official business stationery package as illustrated on the following pages. Orders for stationery must be submitted through the approved vendor’s website. Use of the university’s indicia for business reply envelopes and other business uses must be reviewed and approved by the university’s postal services distribution center.
The official university’s stationery features the master logo on the top.
The official university business package includes:
- Business cards
- Letter size
- Monarch size
- No. 10 Business
- No. 10 Business Window
- No. 9 Business Reply
- Mailing labels
Please note that per the University stationery standards, when referring to titles, buildings, departments or programs, symbols (i.e. /, &, @, *, #), acronyms and/or initials are not allowed. Job titles must be consistent with the employee’s title as they are listed with Human Resources. Phone numbers must appear as they are listed in the KSU Campus directory.
Printing an item that is not a part of the contract is considered a custom order. All custom orders must be submitted for approval to Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to printing.
