About the templates

The following examples are set templates and no alteration to design is allowed. Specifications of the printed matter shown are to be strictly adhered to by all agencies.

Access stationery templates.

The logo should be placed in the top right-hand corner. Body copy is to be left-justified.

The "Tasmanian Government" version of the logo must be used on letterheads, not the strap line version.

Stationery does not use the basewave device.

The mandatory font is Gills Sans, or - only where Gills Sans is unavailable - Arial.

Note: when using window envelopes, indent the recipient address to 30mm or as required (but not the department address or body copy).

The speicifcations for A4 letterheads are:

  • Department name - Gill Sans regular 14pt
  • Unit name - Gill Sans light capitals 9pt on 12pt leading (2mm space before)
