General


The majority of 3M employees should use general letterhead and envelopes that represent their organizational group. This not only supports a unified identity, but is also cost-efficient for our company. Personalized (or executive) letterhead is reserved for 3M executives who are director level and above.

Order letterhead and envelopes online through BCSI. For assistance, contact Customer Service 952-895-6734. A letterhead template is available for your use in the “Download” area of this Web site.
