Office of Communications
College Stationery

Departments and offices on campus are urged to use the official College stationery for correspondence. We encourage offices to use the general Skidmore letterhead, which does not specify office or department. (Your department will be specified on the envelope.) In special cases, stationery can carry an office or department name, although the basic layout and typography may not be altered.

IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE A COMPELLING NEED that requires specialized stationery, please contact College Relations to discuss your request and the design criteria.

COMPUTERIZED FORMATS FOR STATIONERY:
Templates for Skidmore letterhead, cover sheets, memos, and fax sheets are available for use on your computer. These formats enable you to print stationery directly from your computer or to send it electronically. Links to the templates are available below. For further information contact the electronic communications manager (ext. 5745).
