Before we started the process of unifying and rebranding the university, University Advancement did look at the costs associated with doing so, and we are pleased to say that the branding will not cost departments any more than they are currently paying, but will actually save money over time.
The new stationery doesn’t have a full-bleed printing, which is very expensive to do, so eliminating that is a cost savings.
The new stationery is printed on 100% recycled, unbleached paper, and still less expensive than the cost of the old stationery—and sustainable to boot!
University Advancement is not asking departments to throw out their current stock, so there is no waste. When each department runs out of stock, they will reorder the new stock.
