The University offers multiple resources for schools, departments and units on campus that need standardized letterhead, envelopes and business cards.


University Templates

The University has created a standard stationery template for letterhead, envelopes and business cards. Using these templates ensures consistency across the brand and keeps printing costs to a minimum. The University templates may not be altered in any way, including rearranging information, changing abbreviations for office/cell phone/fax numbers, changing colors and adding additional design elements. In order to maintain consistency, logo usage is limited to the main University logo and unit logos. Groups with department logos may use the main University logo or their overarching group’s unit logo. All orders for printed letterhead, business cards and envelopes may be placed online at UNC Print Stop and Copy Center.

Template Customization

When ordering official University stationery, the following information may be customized:

  • University logo or unit logo
  • Individual name
  • Individual title
  • Organization/office/department
  • Email address
  • Building name
  • Address
  • Phone
  • Website URL
  • Social media links (business cards only)

Mockups of the official University templates for printed letterhead and envelopes



Electronic Letterhead

UNC Creative designs electronic versions of official letterhead. The electronic letterhead is a Microsoft Word document with a locked header and editable body. Please do not attempt to format customized electronic letterhead.



Business Cards

The University business card template is a 2-sided design with individual information on the front and the University/unit logo, URL and social media handles on the back. Please do not attempt to format customized business cards.



Custom Stationery

The University stationery templates were designed to provide the campus community with a quick and affordable solution. Permitted customizations are minimal and may not meet all needs. Custom stationery designs are allowed, provided the following two conditions are met:

  • All University brand guidelines are adhered to (logo clear space, size, color, etc.)
  • Custom design does not closely resemble the official University templates

For additional information about custom stationery or other materials, such as mailing labels, booklet envelopes, podium signs or memo pads, contact UNC Creative.



All official University template stationery, except electronic letterhead, should be ordered through UNC Print Stop and Copy Center. For electronic letterhead, contact UNC Creative.
