Our brand communicates the personality of the college across a wide range of communication vehicles and media channels. The guidelines for Bristol Community College have been developed to ensure that any representation of the college is expressed in a consistent form to all audiences – both internal and external – in a distinct and unique way.
Please refer to the Bristol Brand Guidelines for direction on the use and general thematic look-and-feel of the Bristol brand.
Bristol Style Guidelines
In general, the college Marketing & Communications department follows The Associated Press (AP) Stylebook. We have taken certain liberties based on general practice in higher education, established common usage and our brand guidelines. The Bristol Guideline Sheet is meant to be a reference that will provide consistency across the college for general materials that are being produced for a variety of audiences (e.g. Bristol Weekly articles, email messages that are going out to the college community, articles that are being written for internal marketing and promotional publications). These guidelines are not necessarily meant to be used for academic journals, scholarly literature, grant writing, creative promotional materials or other sources that may have their own specific requirements and style guide. View the Bristol Style Guidelines Sheet for clarification around common usage and changes that have been adopted outside the AP stylebook guidelines. The information is not meant to be all-encompassing.
Business cards are printed 250 cards/box and are $51.00. You must submit a business card request form (below). Once your business card request form is approved by Marketing & Communications, the individual responsible for procurement for your department will need to attach the approved form to your Online Requisition, using the Online Procurement System.
The order will be placed when the printer receives the issued Purchase Order (PO) from purchasing. A proof will be sent to you from the printer to approve. The cards will ship to you directly. Once you receive them, sign the pink Payment Release Form that was issued to your department. The invoice will be sent directly to Accounts Payable, by the print company.
Please check this box confirming that you have read the above processing instructions for business card purchasing.
