Stationery is the primary means of communicating Bradley's image at the personnel level. Letterhead, envelopes, business cards and related items should be consistent for all university units.
General Bradley Stationery Items
Generic Bradley branded items also may be ordered. Items available include:
No. 10 envelopes
No. 10 window envelopes
large return address labels
branded self-adhesive name tags
To order items, email our fulfillment service in General Services, Jayne Dant, firstname.lastname@example.org the item name, quantity, delivery address and account number to bill.
University business cards are the only stationery item that you may personalize. Your Bradley business card is to include University business information only. Name, title, college/department/office, street address, city, state, zip code and office telephone number need to be on all business cards. Additional information including fax number, 800-number, cellular phone number, pager number or URL may be included if it has direct application to university business and it fits within the maximum number of lines of information allowed.
Graphical samples of the business card options are shown below.
To place a business card order, choose which style of layout you’d like, then send that choice and the pertinent information to your ordering contact listed below, who will place the order for you. Turnaround is typically one week and the cards will be delivered directly to your office.
All university letterhead follows a standard format featuring the Bradley University logo as the primary design element. A unit’s name, college (if applicable), address and/or primary telephone numbers (desk/fax/800) are positioned at the bottom of the page in Scala typeface, and must be set by the Office of Marketing and Communications.
Letterhead may not be preprinted with an individual's name, phone number or fax number. Your typed closing and signature are sufficient.
Other logos are not permitted on university stationery. They detract from a unified university image, increase visual clutter and take attention away from the message.
All letters should adhere to business letter-writing standards, including date, inside address, salutation, body, closing signature, name and title. Images and clip art may not be added to letters.
Formal stationery items will be printed on white paper in two colors of ink: Bradley red and black. Graphical examples of the letterhead are shown below:
Digital letterhead is permissible for use only when digital communication is required, such as for letters of recommendation. To help ensure consistency with your printed letterhead, only the Office of Marketing and Communications may create your Word document letterhead template. We will deliver the finished template, with logo placed, fonts set as a footer image, and margins set correctly… you just need to start typing.
All digital letterhead requests should be submitted through the Office of Marketing and Communications’ project request system.
No other business cards, letterhead or envelope designs may be used for official university business or communications unless approved by the Office of Marketing and Communications.
The return address is positioned in the upper left corner of the mailing panel of the envelope. The return address should include the university logo, name of your unit and 1501 West Bradley Avenue, Peoria, Illinois 61625. As envelopes are considered sub-brands, they also will only be developed in Scala by the Office of Marketing and Communications.
To save costs, the university places a bulk order every May. Be sure to let your contact know your stationery ordering needs by June 1 annually.
To order university stationery, please contact the individual in the list below who is responsible for ordering on behalf of your unit. (Note: Generally, the person ordering on behalf of your unit is located in the office your unit ultimately reports to. For example, an academic department/program would order through its college dean’s office.) If you are unsure which office your unit would submit a request to, please contact Sarah Dukes, email@example.com, in the Office of Marketing and Communications for assistance.
If you are an Ordering Contact, below is the timeline we send around May 1. Note dates may change year to year, but the window of time for each step of the process will remain the same.
By May 11, please review your stationery on the CMFI online catalog and submit any requests for new stationery or text changes via the Office of Marketing and Communications online support system. CMFI will charge your unit for the cost of a new printing plate or changing the printing plate for your stationery.
By June 1, all new stationery and text revisions will be updated in the CMFI online catalog, and you may order your materials.
