How do I order new stationery, such as letterhead and business cards?

Brand Central, Bentley's former stationery portal, is no longer active. New stationery, including letterhead, notecards, envelopes and business cards, can be requested by emailing We aim to have a new self-service stationery portal up by mid-late Summer 2024. As always, stationery and card orders are paid for by individual departments and orders must be approved by the appropriate department manager / director / VP. 

Are Bentley logos available to download?

Yes! The Bentley logo can be downloaded in various formats from the brand site under Visual Identity

Where can I find logos for specific departments, centers and offices?

Bentley’s brand is strongest when it is cohesive and consistently applied. Our logo architecture allows departments / centers / offices to use the logo and wordmark plus their name to create a “lockup.” To make it easy to have a lockup created or updated, we have built a new logo generator app. Your lockup will be automatically created with the correct fonts, colors and spacing and then emailed to you in a .zip file. (To use the app, you must be on campus or logged in with VPN. 6/3/24 Dev update: We are having intermittent issues with the IP address for the logo generator. If you have issues accessing the page, please email

How do I get a brand or logo for my program or event?

The decision about whether a program or event gets a distinct visual identity or logo is made by the Marketing and Communications team in consultation with the department or division leadership.

Generally, departments, centers and offices – particularly those that communicate externally – should use a lockup with the Bentley logo. However, programs and events – particularly those that are internally facing or involve alumni or students – may have some additional elements created.

Marketing and Communications will continue to work with our campus partners and clients as well as SP&E, HYPE and other student organizations to evaluate these policies, specifically as they relate to student-run organizations.

Can I create my own logo?

The majority of Bentley departments, centers and offices will not have sub-brands or distinct logos. This is by design, as it is important for the university to present itself as one institution, rather than a collection of separate entities.

It is important that you or your vendors do not attempt to use or alter the Bentley logo without going through the proper licensing and branding process. 

My department / center / office has an existing logo/artwork that is not directly tied to the Bentley brand (previous or current). Can I still use it?

The brand and associated logo system is intended to visually align all of Bentley’s communications and programs. As such, we expect that you will update your materials as soon as it is feasible (i.e., digital assets immediately, print assets as you run out). If you have any concerns about this, please reach out to your VP or email This applies to both the Bentley shield logo as well as the athletics logo.

Can I use the new university seal for my department or project?

We have reserved the university seal for use by the Board of Trustees, Office of the President, Office of the Provost, formal academic applications (i.e., diplomas, commencement) and select university advancement initiatives. Contact with questions.

Will templates be available for download?

Templates, including presentation slides, digital letterhead, report covers and email signature guidelines are available for download from the brand site under Resources. You can also find many templates in the university's Canva account. Please contact for more information.

Will there be brand guidelines including logo use, colors, fonts, etc.?

Yes! Brand Guidelines as well as other helpful resources for writing and designing within the Bentley brand are available for download.
