Burgundy (PMS202C) is the official accent
color and should be used not as an equal, but as a complementary
color, to the official colors.
Printing of Colors
The standard version of the university logo and college- and
unit-specific logos includes the mountain icon in PMS 123 or the
four-color process equivalent with solid black lettering.
Solid-white logos are acceptable when two-color or four-color
process reproduction is not an option. Only in one-color printing
may the logo appear in other colors. It is recommended, however,
that black ink be used whenever possible.
Printing on color backgrounds
When printing the logo on light backgrounds, use the primary logo.
When reproducing on a darker background, use a reversed, white
version of the logo as shown here. The logo must never be printed
in a box or enclosed in any manner. The boxes below are to allow for
viewing of the reversed version of the logo only.
Other color usage
The logo may be produced in copper, gold or silver inks or foils.
The logo may also be blind-embossed.
Note that the PMS is designed for printing inks.
Screen-printing inks and textile, paint and plastic colors may not
accurately match the university logo colors. Please obtain color
samples from licensed vendors and deliver to University Relations
for approval prior to production of items when using these
materials. Submit all design mock-ups to
firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. All designs must be approved through University Relations.
