About Your Letterhead and Envelopes

There are two kinds of letterhead/envelope packages that you may order:

  1. The Standard Letterhead/Envelope Package, which is the basic letterhead/envelope without office, departmental, or individual identifications. You may order these online from Staples Advantage. Once you login to Staples Advantage, you will see a drop down menu called "Your Shopping Lists." Click and highlight "SCSU Envelopes and Letterhead" to view all of the items available.
  2. The Departmental Letterhead/Envelope Package is the basic letterhead/envelope, PLUS specific information like department name, phone numbers, and departmental information. If you have questions about whether to order the Standard Letterhead/Envelope Package or the Departmental Letterhead/Envelope Package, check first with your vice president, dean, or chair. If you have questions, e-mail or call Marylou Conley at 26599.
    The vendor for departmental letterheads and envelopes, Hodgins Engraving, will follow exactly the layout developed by the Office of Communications & Marketing. There will be no deviation from this design.
