Stationery checklist

Making sure

When designing and producing stationery, you should check that:

  • Your NHS logotype is in the top right-hand corner.
  • You have produced your NHS logotype using NHS Blue (Pantone® 300) and black – no other colours should be used.
  • You have not applied a local design style to your stationery items.
  • You are using Frutiger typeface for all professionally printed stationery items.
  • You are using Arial for items being word-processed and printed via a laser printer.
  • You are keeping your audiences’ accessibility needs in mind, for instance, the needs of people with visual impairments.
  • You are using white paper (unless yellow paper has been requested locally for readers with visual impairments).
