The 4-H Templates include appropriate UMaine Extension branding.

UMaine’s official serif fonts are Garamond and Egyptienne. The official sans serif font is Frutiger. Acceptable substitutions for Frutiger are Helvetica and Arial. It is recommended that one serif font and one san serif font be used together; however if you do not have access to serif fonts, Helvetica and Arial are acceptable substitutes. For more information, please see University of Maine brand standards.
