Three-Level Literature System

Level Three Literature


Level three literature communicates even more specific details about a particular product or service to help the customer make more informed buying decisions. It answers the question, “How do I order, specify or use 3M products?” Level three pieces may include a horizontal 3M montage banner across the top, if space permits. If used, it is not necessary to include montage messaging type or white space above it.

Visit the imagery, 3M montage, and typography pages for further information. Adobe® InDesign® templates, including style sheets, grids, and correct positioning for logo, text, montage banner, and both address systems are available in the Download Library.

Standards


  • Include a horizontal 3M montage banner across the top, if space permits (up to 1-1/4 inches deep).

  • Imagery is primarily product-focused, with supporting people and pattern images.
  • The headlines are set in Helvetica Neue 67 Medium Condensed 24/24.
  • The subheads are set in Helvetica Neue 67 Medium Condensed 16/16.

  • Text for captions is set in Helvetica Neue 57 Regular Condensed 9/10.
