Bayer stationery displays only the Bayer Cross as the sender. Official company information is placed in the right-hand margin and arranged in a predefined order. The information in the right-hand margin needs to be personalized according to your legal entity. When in doubt, take a look at your e-mail footer for the required information for the marginal column.


Business correspondence


A print PDF, an InDesign document and the Word template (with the Bayer Cross for blank paper) are available for all letterhead versions shown here. A PDF containing letterhead dimensions, spacing, typeface, etc. is also available to facilitate customization in countries that use neither DIN or U.S. formats.

All business correspondence should be printed on normal blank paper using the Word template that includes the 4c Bayer Cross.


Arial Regular is the typeface required for the text of every Word letterhead. Further details and instructions on the use of Word files can be found in MS Office Word Template Solutions.
