Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use the “Institutional” version, or one of the others?

As a rule, you should use the Lewis & Clark (Institutional) version if your office/division/group serves more than one of our three schools. Examples include Campus Safety, Human Resources, and Watzek Library.

What is the difference between the “single-page” file and the “multipage” file?

As you may know if you work with long letters, regular letterhead should be used only for the first page. The second and any subsequent pages appear on sheets that are blank or have a simplified design. To accommodate longer digital correspondence, we offer a multipage file that will automatically format second and subsequent pages correctly. If you don’t know whether your letter will exceed a single page, we suggest you use the multipage file. It will contract in size if it turns out your letter fits comfortably on a single page.

How/where do I list my department name and contact information?

With digital letterhead, you have the freedom to place your department name, contact information, and any other details you wish anywhere within the body of your letter or your signature block.

Can I customize the digital letterhead?

All correspondence, electronic or otherwise, creates an impression. Communications provides this professionally designed letterhead to ensure that you have a tool to create correspondence that meets Lewis & Clark’s quality standards. We therefore ask that you not attempt to alter the letterhead on your own. If you’d like customized digital letterhead, please email Janna Clark with your information.

Why is the text in the letterhead gray? Shouldn’t it be black?

When you open one of these Word files, the top portion of the design will appear to be gray. Don’t worry! Once you complete the instructions by saving your finished letter as a PDF, the text and shield at the top of the letterhead will display in the correct colors.

Using PowerPoint (or Keynote) Wisely: A Brief Guide

  • Figure out whether you really need a visual aid. PowerPoint isn’t the right tool for every job. Will a slide, chart, or graph really make your information clear and memorable? If not, skip the PowerPoint. Be a dynamic and charismatic speaker and people will respond!
  • Don’t just read the text of your slides out loud. Your audience can and will read on their own. Use your presentation time to explain and elaborate.
  • Be sure your audience can make out the contents of your slides with ease. Be kind and fight the impulse to overfill your slides. If you are struggling to make elements fit, you probably have too much information for a single slide. Break it up over two or more, and use fewer words and ideas per slide.
  • Practice, practice, practice your presentation. Avoid using PowerPoint as an excuse for being underprepared. You should be ready to give your presentation without slides if technical difficulty strikes.
