University offices and departments must use the official watermark letterhead for all off-campus correspondence.
Electronic submission of letterhead need not represent the watermark found on printed versions of the official letterhead. Official notepads can be used for on-campus correspondence. Letters should be composed in Garamond, Tablet Gothic or Museo Slab, 12-point type, single-spaced. All text should be left justified. Margins should be at least one inch on the left and right sides, two inches on the top and 1-1/2 inches on the bottom. (Note: These are the minimum margins allowed. For shorter letters, use larger margins as needed to make correspondence visually pleasing.) The university logo is centered at the top of the page. The university address and department-specific contact information is centered at the bottom. University letterhead is printed in blue (PMS 281) on 20 lb. white rag bond, watermarked with the Kent State seal.
