Stationery acts as an important official expression of our institutional identity. It signifies and identifies the many parts of the university as well as the individuals and roles within it. A flexible stationery system has been designed to meet the needs of the campus community. It includes several formats and options to accommodate a wide range of applications, and it supersedes all previously approved stationery designs. This stationery system includes letterhead, envelopes, electronic letterhead, and business cards.

Faculty, staff, and Ph.D. candidates can choose from approved UCR business cards, envelopes, and letterhead templates. Unauthorized variations of the stationery system (including design or format changes) are not allowed. To review design options and/or to place an order, please contact UCR Auxiliary Design Services,, or go to

UCR Stationery: Letterhead

Primary and Secondary Versions
The university’s letterhead, envelopes, and business cards were designed to maintain the integrity of the campus identity and establish a professional quality stationery system to represent the institution. Two versions of approved letterhead are available, with or without a screened-back image of the UCR seal. 

To maintain identity integrity and quality, professionally produced printing press versions of the letterhead printed with official UCR blue and UCR gold colors are recommended.

Beginning July 2020, request new campus stationery through Campus Business Services.

UCR Business Cards — Multiple Affiliations

For multiple affiliations, the cardholder must list the primary (e.g., college) affiliation at the card upper right, with the option of listing another affiliation with the personal information.

Additional affiliation information can be printed on the card back. For example, a professor with a college and department affiliation can list his position as journal editor or center director on the card back.

If printing is requested on the back of the card, such as a translation of the card in a foreign language, please be advised that only text is allowed and it must print in a predetermined area in approved font size and color. Other logos or images, except the patterns approved here, are not permitted on the back of the card. In the case of the translated card, these fonts require printing on specific materials, so please consult Creative Design Services for ordering information.
