Document templates

These Microsoft Word templates provide a desktop publishing alternative to ordering customized letterhead. To correctly use the templates, you must first install

 if you don’t already have it. We recommend you distribute final documents as PDFs to ensure the correct formatting when printed by others.

We suggest using the version with the tagline for the strongest expression of the GSE identity and vision.
