Photos and Fonts for Templates

  • Many of the templates require the use of photography or imagery. It is never appropriate—or legal—to use an image from another source in print, on the web or on social media without obtaining permission from the image’s owner. 
  • For the InDesign and MS Word templates to function, you must install SJSU Spartan Typeface before using the templates.

MS Word Templates: For Windows Computers Only

Due to the technical limitations of MS Word, letterhead templates can only be edited on Windows computers, not on Macs. To open the MS Word template on your Windows computer, you will need to adjust your security settings in MS Word to "enable macros." If you do not do this before opening the template, you will be prompted to do so. Once you download and open the template in MS Word, an entry form will open. Edit your information and click save. 

Electronic Letterhead

Official SJSU electronic letterhead templates may be customized with your division, department or program information. NOTE: Due to the technical limitations of MS Word, electronic letterhead templates may only be customized on a Windows platform. Once it has been customized with department name and contact information, the Word document may be shared with Mac users, who will be able to edit the body text. To view samples of the different letterhead options, please see page 50 of SJSU Power Source: A Multi-Platform Communication GuideYou may order printed stationery through OfficeMax.

Tri-Fold Brochure

Before you create a brochure, ask yourself: Do I really need a printed brochure?

Sometimes promoting your college, department or program calls for building a virtual community on the web and social media, rather than printing a brochure. Consider both your audience and your communication goals.
