A standardized envelope format must be used for official university communications. Individual schools, departments and other units may not create their own envelopes without permission from the Director of Trademark Licensing who will seek approval from the Branding Committee. Because of the potential for poor quality, departments are not allowed to design their own envelopes on personal computers, nor is it per­mitted to have envelopes printed at off-campus locations, To ensure consistency, Printing and Graphic Services produces all Boise State envelopes from approved templates.
