Brand guidelines


The British Council has global standards for its business stationery. All stationery must be professionally printed and follow these guidelines without exception. The British Council logo must always be printed in two spot colours (Pantone™ 2995 for the symbol and Pantone™ 295 for the name elements of the logo) on all stationery items.

Our approved supplier in the UK, APS Group, can print letterheads, compliment slips and business cards for both the UK and overseas offices. Overseas offices can also choose to print their stationery in country following the brand guidance.

Digital versions of our letterheads should not be produced due to security issues and concerns around fraudulent use.
