the GSACS Printing Control Office for approval,
prior to printing, a sample of each letterhead,
envelope, memo pad or routing slip it proposes to
print.

SERVICES, GSACS PRINTING CONTROL OFFICE

Upon receipt by the GSACS Printing Control Office,
proposed designs will be reviewed for design
consistency and returned to the requester within
five business days. If approved, the design will be
stamped "approved" and signed by the Chief of
Printing Control, or designee.

If, for any reason, the proposed design is
disapproved, a phone call will be placed by the
Chief of Printing Control or designee to the
requester, explaining the reasons for disapproval.
A revised proposed design can then be mailed,
delivered or faxed to the GSACS Printing Control
Office for review.

V. APPROVAL CRITERIA

The GSACS Printing Control Office will review each
proposed letterhead, envelope, memo pad, routing slip
and business card for the following elements:

A. STANDARDIZATION

Based on the design criteria established by the
GSACS Printing Control Office, proposed designs
will be reviewed to ensure consistency.

B. DESIGN CONSISTENCY IN MASTHEAD

The approved masthead will contain only the
official Great Seal of the State of New Jersey, the
words "State of New Jersey," the Department name,
the Department address, the Governor's name and the
Commissioner's name.

Placement of any extraneous logos, symbols,
slogans, etc., not to exceed 1/2" in size, must be
made along the bottom of the letterhead, and are
subject to the approval of the GSACS Printing
Control Office.

C. STANDARDIZATION OF PAPER AND INK

In order to realize a substantial savings to the
State, while at the same time addressing the need
to use recycled paper, the recommended paper will
be determined by the GSACS Printing Control Office.

Use of a vegetable-based Royal Blue (PMS 288U) ink,
both environmentally stable and consistent with the
"official" State color, will also be required.
