Stationery

Stationery is one of our most common forms of communication, and often the first point of contact. Because of this, consistency across materials is crucial to brand credibility and recognition.

How can you ensure consistency on stationery? Access the templates here on Field Force Services, only order stationery from approved vendors and never recreate your own materials.

To get started, follow these steps:

  2. Quickly state the reason for the letter
  3. Focus on relevant brand values
  4. Thank the recipient for their business
  5. Create a clear call-to-action
  6. Include your name, title and signature
  7. If appropriate, include a testimonial
  8. Incorporate the Aflac Duck and brand colors

Email

People receive countless emails every day. Not only do Aflac-branded emails need to cut through that clutter, they need to be actionable, credible and easily understood. Here are some tips to help you stand out in a crowded inbox.

What goes into an Aflac email?
  1. A direct, A/B-tested subject line
  2. An email pre-header with a brief description
  3. A relevant, high-resolution header image
  4. Concise, to-the-point body copy
  5. A call-to-action that drives to Aflac.com
  6. A footer with disclaimers, an unsubscribe link and compliance info
What should you consider before emailing?
  1. How many emails are sent
  2. The amount of time between each email
  3. Time of day (research shows peak times between Tuesday and Thursday from  10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
Before sending an email, complete this checklist:
  1. All links have been tested
  2. The Aflac logo is unaltered (no cropping, color changes, etc.)
  3. Any colors used belong to the Aflac color palette
  4. All fonts are hierarchal uses of Proxima Nova
  5. Any imagery used is clean, inviting and friendly
  6. All legally required info is found in the email footer

Important legal information:
The CAN-SPAM Act prohibits misleading subject lines and information. It also requires you to identify messages as ads, tell recipients where you are located and make opting out of emails simple and quick. Every violation of this act is subject to penalty. Contact Aflac Legal with any questions.

Apparel

Apparel and promotional items leave a lasting impression of our brand. To build credibility, trust, and awareness, all items should meet brand and compliance standards and should always be approved by executive management before they’re created.

Logo
When placing the Aflac logo on apparel or promotional items, keep it simple. Always follow the logo and identity use rules, and only use approved assets.

Placement
The Aflac logo should be placed above the left chest, on center of the back or on the sleeve. Review the logo space and size requirements for correct placement.

Hats
The Aflac logo should appear on the front, side or back of a cap. Center the logo between two seams, never on top of the seams.

Socks
When adding the Aflac logo to socks and stockings, make sure you can see it with any shoe. Place the logo at least mid-shin-level or above— around the top of an ankle boot.

Apparel Color
Before you choose fabrics or colors, please consider when and where the apparel will be worn.

If featured on apparel in addition to the Aflac logo, the Aflac Duck should only be represented in the approved Aflac color palette.
