All Bayer envelopes must display the Bayer Cross, the name of the legal entity and the respective address. Whether they are positioned top left or bottom right depends on a country’s postal regulations.


Correct positioning of the Bayer Cross and legal entity information

Standard design with Bayer Cross and address at top left

The standard position for the Bayer Cross with the name and address of the legal entity below it is in the top left-hand corner of an envelope. That way, the top right-hand side remains free for stamps or franking. However, in some countries, such as the UK, national postal regulations require the left-hand side of an envelope to be left blank. In such cases the Bayer Cross and the name and address of the legal entity must be shifted to the bottom right-hand corner.

The Bayer Cross never varies in size and must always be printed in four colors (Euroscale) with the name of the legal entity and its address printed in Neue Helvetica dark blue. A print PDF can be downloaded for country-specific envelopes and InDesign templates for C4, C5 and DIN long envelopes as well as U.S. formats.
