About Boise State’s stationery design

Boise State’s stationery is designed for accessibility, readability and to reinforce our university brand. These systems are designed to accommodate varying lengths of addresses, department names, titles and names of people who use the materials to represent university work. Line character lengths are limited. All phone numbers, addresses and URLs are styled to align with our University Writing Style Guide. Each should use boisestate.edu URLs and email addresses. No social media or third-party websites are allowed. 

Departments that use an official companion mark may include it on all pieces of stationery, including business cards, letterhead, envelopes. Programs that do not have a companion mark should use their college or department companion mark on letterhead and then list the program name in the body of the letter or signature line.

For more information, please visit Boise State Brand Standards.
