The College Seal
The Skidmore College seal is the official academic logotype of the College. Where
the wordmark is used for general institutional identification, the college seal is
reserved for specific uses, generally those of an academic nature. These uses include
the Skidmore College Catalog and materials related to Opening Convocation, Honors Convocation, Commencement, endowed
lectures, and the Alumni Recognition Ceremony.
The Skidmore College seal is designed to be used "as is"; the proportions should never be altered. The seal can be reduced or enlarged as long as the proportions remain the same. Because use of the seal is restricted, it is not available on the website for downloading.
Copies of the seal are available in camera-ready and digital formats from the Office of Communications and Marketing. Contact the vice president of communications and marketing at 518-580-5733.

Proper ways to use the college seal
- Use the seal in either black, Pantone Matching System (PMS) 3298 (green), or PMS 871 gold metallic. The seal may also be foil-stamped in gold or be embossed.
- Use the seal screened to lighter shades of black or PMS 3298 (green).
- Do not use the seal screened in PMS 871 metallic.
- Use the seal in reverse in either white, PMS 109 (yellow), or a screen of PMS 109 on a black or green background. Metallic gold (PMS 871) can be used in place of PMS 109 for special occasions. PMS 871 should be used only at 100% strength (not screened).
