Mailing Graphic Guide
The following guides integrate the University brand into mailing graphics. Please contact print and postal services for current postal guidelines and for approval on all artwork before going to print. Visit the brand resources page to download the following print ready files.
There are three different formats for the return address. Select the format that fits and looks the best on your envelope, postcard, or self-mailer. Please do not resize the graphics any smaller than provided to comply with postal standards for minimum font size. All formats may be printed in a 1-color (2955), 1-color tint, grayscale, or black.

Letters using this indicia are mailed at the bulk mail rate but can be sent under different permits from alternate locations. Proper paperwork must be filed at the originating post office to be valid.
Endorsements are added below the return address and provide instruction to the USPS when a piece of mail is undeliverable. The rate at which a piece is mailed includes certain levels of service but including an endorsement provides a repetition of that instruction.
Address Service Requested

Change Service Requested
provides address correction services without forwarding or return. If undeliverable, either the new address or the reason it is undeliverable is provided to the sender.
Return Service Requested
provides address correction services and always returns the piece.
Electronic Service Requested
directs mailpiece to a computerized forwarding system for processing. This is the most cost effective option for undeliverable mail and should be the default for all bulk mailings.
