Why do we have to follow A&M brand guidelines?

As a branch campus of Texas A&M University, we benefit from being part of the Texas A&M System, the Aggie Family, the Former Student Association, and the A&M Foundation. As a result, our brand image is overseen by representatives at the main campus. Our image reflects their image and vice versa. By building a stronger brand, we are becoming a more professionally and visible part of one of the largest university systems in the world.

Can I center the text on my business card?

No. All text on the new Texas A&M University at Galveston business card design is required to appear in the approved format. Text cannot be centered; colors, fonts or font sizes cannot be altered; the logo cannot be altered or swapped for another logo; the addition of a secondary logo to a business card must be approved by the Marketing and Communications department.

What if I print my own business cards?

Business cards printed on personal printers do not represent the same level of professional quality as a print shop offers. Additionally, the thickness and type of paper, and Texas A&M colors used will not correspond to what is required.

What if I order my business cards from somewhere else?

Business cards ordered from print shops other than the Texas A&M University at Galveston copy center may not meet required guidelines, and may not be recognized by the university.

Can I design my own letterhead?

Yes and no. A download is available here for letterhead. You can download this template and input your personal or department information. However, you cannot alter the layout or design for those templates.

Can I put my department logo on any print or web publications?

No. As of September 1, 2012, all secondary or individual logos will no longer be allowed for Texas A&M University colleges, departments, divisions, programs, centers, and other units.
