The Chamber Members Logo Usage Guidelines
The Chamber Logo is the symbol of our brand and using it on business cards, websites and stationery is a great way to put member organizations membership to work for Chamber members. It is an effective marketing tool that quickly spotlights member professional affiliation and enhances member business image. Active members or outside vendors contracted to design marketing or advertising materials can use it.
- The Organization logo and any marks associated with the CHAMBER are the property of the Chamber and are protected by State and Federal laws. Use of the Chamber logo is a benefit of membership and is restricted to members in good standing. The logo maybe used on stationery, business cards, advertising, and by members to indicate Chamber membership.
- The illustration at the bottom of this page demonstrates the components and color usage of the Chamber logo, and may not be altered or modified, including change in color or font. The typeface of the logo has been customized, so use camera-ready art available from the chamber rather than setting the type. The logo symbol and the type should always appear as a unit, not separate from each other. The logo may not be taken apart or combined with other design elements. The logo may be resized to fit a particular use, but the original proportions of the image may not be changed.
- The logo may not be used on merchandise or other promotional products unless authorized by the Chamber Board. The logo may not be used to state or imply that the Organization has endorsed a company or a company’s products and services.
