In recognition of the leadership opportunities clubs provide Iowa State students, the university has developed a special template and established procedures for officers of groups to have printed business cards. The design template communicates the student’s official capacity with the group and reflects the club’s recognition and connection with the university.
Business cards may be requested by officers as listed for each Sponsored and Affiliated recognized student organization in the Student Organization Database.
Complete the form by clicking continue at the bottom of this page. Requests are to be routed through the Trademark Licensing Office for review. Upon approval, requests will be forwarded electronically to ISU Printing. The business card proof will be e-mailed to the student. The student is responsible for approval of proof.
This program was developed by University Marketing, Trademark Licensing, Student Activities Center and the Campus Organizations Accounting Office, and approved by the Senior Vice President of Business and Finance.
