All stationery requests should go through Vanderbilt Printing Services. Orders may be placed on their website.

The templates on the Vanderbilt Printing site are the only official stationery templates for Vanderbilt University and Medical Center.

Electronic templates are also available through Vanderbilt Printing. These are to be used for emailing only and not for printing on desktop or other printers.

For those who work in mainly academic/research areas and do not see patients, order the School of Medicine or School of Nursing stationery. Everyone else should order VUMC stationery.


If you are developing a video for external audiences that carries the name of Vanderbilt, it should be of professional quality in order to reflect the brand properly and must meet Vanderbilt brand and logo standards.

Depending on your project budget, we can refer you to external video resources with whom we have worked and that we know deliver Vanderbilt quality and who understand our brand standards.


If you would like to use the video on an official Vanderbilt website or social channel such as YouTube, send it to us for review before it's finalized. We want to be sure it carries the appropriate brand sensibility. Send a review link to the content team.

Web Banner Announcements

If you would like to put an announcement on the Medical Center homepage, you've come to the right place. We'll design it for you and run it for seven days (longer if there is space). We'll need to know a couple of weeks ahead of time to be sure the space is available because we are limited to five announcements at a time. Email to make a request.
