Stationery

The Pepperdine stationery system (letterhead, business card, #10 envelope, and note card) is the official print communication vehicle representing the employee and their role within the University.

All components of the stationery system are built on the same design template and on the same custom paper that is watermarked with the University Seal. This consistent design and brand identity usage helps to strengthen the Pepperdine brand identity, and visually represent the relationship between the employee, the University, and a school, center, institute, division, or department.

Custom letterhead, business cards, note cards, and envelopes are not permitted.

Student Business Card

The Pepperdine student business card is provided as a service to the student for the benefit of internship and externship recruitment, career placement, and other engagements that fall within the scope of the University's academic enterprise. Student business cards are designed to indicate that the student has an official academic relationship with the University. They do not indicate that the student is an employee or agent of the University, nor do they imply that a student represents the University in any official capacity.

  • [Full degree name} Candidate
  • Degree Completion Year

Students officially enrolled in joint degree programs may list the degree and school information for each program.
