There are three treatments of the Wesleyan logo: the Wesleyan Cover Stamp, the Wesleyan Stacked Stamp, and the Traditional Logo. In addition to these, the Athletic Department has specific sports logos. Each one has a specific purpose and a set of guidelines that must be followed. Every publication must have a Wesleyan stamp with the exception of business cards and stationery (when the traditional logo is used.) Wesleyan stamps may also be used for WesGear. Detailed guidelines and printable versions of logos are password protected. Please contact Dena Matthews for login instructions.

How to Use This Section:

Included in this section are images to be used for placement only and images to be sent to a printer. If you wish to lay out your design in Word (or some other program you are comfortable with), right click on the image of your choice and download the gif files FOR PLACEMENT ONLY. Do not give them to the printer. Be sure to supply your printer with the corresponding eps file. Let them know that Wesleyan red is PMS 200. Correct use of the logo can be more complicated than it appears. Do not hesitate to consult designers in the Publications Office.
