For the letterhead template, the Columbus State logo and department name are in the header and footer. You need to double click in the footer to make the copy active. You will see the text that says "Type Department Name Here" -- the text is set with the correct color, type font and spacing.

There are a few options for the letterhead usage: you can use it electronically or print it out on your desktop printer. If you don't have a color printer and want color or a large run of letterhead, you can send your Word doc to Office Services, via and they will print out what you need.
