Stationery

Whether it is letterhead, business cards, or notepads, the most prominent vehicle offices and departments at the university use to communicate with internal and external audiences is their stationery. Having a consistent and professional look on all university stationery communicates a unified message to these audiences and reiterates the traditional colors and symbols that give our university its unique identity.

All university stationery is designed and printed by the University of Houston Printing Services department, a professional printing facility that is available to the entire UH community. Our stationery features a watermarked paper stock specially created for the university.

In order to maintain consistency and make the process of ordering stationery as easy as possible, UH Printing Services features templates for all of your stationery needs. These templates have both set design elements and blank fields where you can customize information. All you need to do in most cases is provide the correct text to fill in the blanks.

Following are examples of the types of stationery available through Printing Services and the information needed to complete your order. If you have any questions or would like to order some stationery please contact UH Printing Services at 713-743-5900.

Special-Case Stationery

We understand that the official stationery will not always be the best option for your office or department, and some special cases merit their own unique design. If this is the case then UH Printing Services and the Office of Publications will work with you to design a new template.

However, such special-case stationery must be approved by the Associate Vice President for University Relations and must prominently feature the University of Houston logotype and official colors, and it must be printed on the special UH watermark paper stock

For more information on special-case stationery please contact UH Printing Services (713-743-5900) or the Office of Publications (713-743-8170)
