UF stationery is intended to identify the communicator/bearer in terms of his/her relationship with the university and should only be used for official UF business purposes. Business cards should identify the bearer with respect to his/her official position at the university. If there is a compelling need to include personal addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses, contact the Office of University Communications at 352-846-3903 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request an exception.
The university has aligned itself with specific certified printers, all of whom adhere to FSC standards. Be sure the printer you choose is on this list (link).

The stationery should also include the general office telephone numbers with area code. No more than three unit names (office, center, department, college) should be used (College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Department of History, for example).
Type sizes: The primary unit division, department, center or other name (unit sending letter) is 10-point bold with 12-point leading. All other address information is 10-point regular or Roman (not bold) with 12- point leading.
Names and titles: With the exception of the president of the university, printed stationery is not to be personalized. Business cards are the appropriate place for such personalized information.
