The email signature is a vital tool in presenting UAB as a unified brand, and consistency supports our message.

It should be formatted using Calibri or an approved font. The font size should not be larger than 12pt. The name and title can be green (R-30 G-107 B-82 or #1E6B52 in hexidecimal) or black. All other information should be black. Phone and email options can be changed as necessary to your preferred contact method (P-phone, O-office, M-mobile, F-fax, etc.)

With the exception being the 50th anniversary logo/mark, the UAB logo or images should not be included in the signature.

See "Addresses" in the Writing Style Guide for the appropriate ZIP code for your unit.

50th Anniversary Version:

The best way to communicate with UAB's external audiences about the 50th anniversary is to include it in your email signature. The 50th anniversary mark should not be used on business cards, letterhead, or any other type of stationery. Post 2019, the mark should be removed from your email signature.
