To help serve this need, we are excited to offer a library of branded templates for university departments and schools to download. Current templates include:
- Email Signatures
- Zoom and Webex Virtual Background Images
- Canva Templates (flyers, email headers, cards, social graphics)
- Image Resizing Templates
- PowerPoint Presentation

If you are looking to order business cards, letterhead (print and electronic) and/or envelopes, these items, which adhere to the university's branding guidelines, can be purchased through iBuy. Look for "Dupli" under the Office Supplies and Furniture section of iBuy.
Email signature templates are available for use on Gmail, Outlook, Mac Mail app, iPhone and iPad Mail app, and the Android Gmail app.
Official email signatures should only be used by GW faculty and staff. Please ensure your email signature reflects the most current template available.
There are more than 15 background options to choose from, featuring photos of iconic places on campus as well as simple GW branded options.
Note: Virtual backgrounds may not be available on all versions of Zoom and Webex. If you have questions about using backgrounds on your computer or mobile device, contact the GW IT Support Center.
Canva provides a user-friendly interface that allows partners of all experience levels to customize templates for university department or school use.
If you have a recurring project and don't see a template here that suits your needs, please submit a project request. If you would like to learn more about how to use these templates you can watch a recorded training.
