EERE Communication Standards & Guidelines
These are EERE's official print and letterhead templates, including fact sheets, tri-fold fact sheets, report covers, business cards, and Word documents.
You are not required to use these templates for your EERE products. These templates were designed to allow EERE staff and contractors to produce EERE-branded files quickly and easily.
If you want to create your own template, have questions about the current template, or want to request additional templates, contact the EERE Publications Manager.
In January 2014, EERE updated the one- and two-page fact sheet templates and made several formatting changes, in addition to creating a new bi-fold pamphlet template. The other outreach templates in this section will be updated to reflect these changes in mid-Fiscal Year 2014. If you have questions about any of the templates on this page, please contact EERE Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All templates marked as updated include updated standards. Each updated template has an InDesign file with a pink design layer with tips and formatting instructions. If you do not have Adobe InDesign, you can use the design layer PDF as a reference for how to format your document using another publishing tool.
The outreach template can be used for documents such as fact sheets, case studies, success stories, and lessons learned. These templates are provided as Adobe® InDesign® files.
