Templates are provided in standard US and ISO sizes. Your local printer can use one of the provided InDesign templates to create business cards for your location. All business cards will be Xylem branded with the product name included as text within the address.
Multiple product logos may be added to the back of business cards. Product logos should be printed in Xylem Gray (PANTONE Cool Gray 11 or C0/M0/Y0/K80), and should not include the Xylem endorsement lockup.
The paper we print our stationery on should be considered as carefully as its design. In order to be environmentally conscious, we have chosen a FSC Certified line of papers with a high post-consumer waste content. Recommendations for paper stocks are listed below.
The preferred paper for our stationery is Neenah Environment (FSC Certified, 20% FSC Certified fiber 80% post consumer), Ultra Bright White. For business cards, use 100 lb (270 g/m2) cover. Letterhead and envelopes should use 24 lb (90 g/m2) writing.
Our recommended paper for business card and stationery is uncoated, therefore the Xylem logo should be printed in Pantone 7460 U instead of Pantone 7704 C, the color used on coated paper stocks.
Neenah Classic Crest Avalanche White can be used as an alternative if Neenah Environment is unavailable. Use 100 lb (270 g/m2) cover smooth for business cards and 24 lb (90 g/m2) writing for letterhead and envelopes.
Take 2 offset is the top option in other regions, such as Europe. Naturalis smooth finish and Revive offset can be substituted. Use comparable weights and bright whites.
