Seal, Maps Now On-Line

Offices that produce publications electronically now have access to electronic versions of the Boston College seal and campus maps.

The seal is available in four sizes: four-inch, one-inch, 3/4-inch and 5/8-inch. To ensure the best quality, Office of Publications and Print Marketing Design Director Jana Milbocker said all sizes should be reproduced with as little enlargement or reduction as possible and the seal should not be reproduced smaller than 5/8-inch in diameter.

While the seal and maps, available via Information Technology's "ITHelps Server," are meant for single color reproduction, full color seals and maps prepared for four-color process reproduction are available by request from OPPM. The maps will be updated every September.

Milbocker said the typefaces, which are contained in Encapsulated PostScript files, can be placed in a wide variety of applications, including Microsoft Word, PageMaker, Aldus Freehand, Adobe Illustrator and Quark Express. Users do not need to own the typefaces to reproduce a seal or map.

Milbocker said users should read guidelines for maps and seals, which are also available on the "ITHelps Server," before proceeding.
