In the interest of presenting a consistent visual identity, Samford University has one standard letterhead, envelope, business card and name tag format. The guidelines for these items can be found in university policy 1.04. (Samford Athletics has a separate stationery system that adheres to NCAA guidelines.)
Stationery printing requests may be made directly with the Samford Print Shop, 726-2830, or via email at email@example.com.
The logo on school-specific letterhead can be the school-specific belltower logo or the Samford University logo. Schools with approved academic insignia (nursing, pharmacy, divinity, education) as of February 1, 2009, may choose to use those insignia at the bottom of the letterhead. The insignia will be screened and printed in PMS 289 blue to coordinate with the official university belltower logo. Schools may choose to use only the official university belltower logo on letterhead.
The logo on all university envelopes should be the official university belltower logo. The logo on school-specific envelopes can be the school-specific belltower logo or the Samford University logo.
Bulk permit mailings must use a return address that includes the words “Samford University” in that order, per USPS bulk mailing regulations because the permit is issued to “Samford University.”
