Campus Service Providers

All units should consult with on-campus service centers before using outside vendors for work, including design, production, printing, art, photography and video production. Working with university service centers and adhering to visual standards are intended to help the University of Florida achieve an effective, efficient and cost-conscious communications program.

Print Vendors

In the past, the hundreds of printing jobs created on campus have been bid individually, and over 150 different vendors were used. By consolidating and certifying a select number of printing companies, fewer printers enjoy the promise of greater volume, so better pricing and service can be secured.

Email Signature Templates

A good email signature is straightforward, simple has a hint of spirit, and complies with brand standard. But most importantly, it’s important to use one in the first place. Saving someone a trip to the UF directory to find your phone number by using an email signature is universally appreciated.

Writing Stylebook

This stylebook is the product of UF Communications Network experts representing virtually every major campus area. The public information offices that deal directly with the media conform to Associated Press style in most cases. Individual offices have unique needs, but if no particular local style prevails, the recommendations in this manual should hold.

Merchandise and Licensing

These standards have been developed as a resource for anyone responsible for the creation or implementation of communication materials.The name, marks and image of the University of Florida cannot be used to imply or suggest endorsement of any product or service not provided by the university.
