Logo Usage & Brand Protection
The visual aspect of the AFP brand can only be established through accurate and consistent usage of our common name and logo throughout North America and the world. Alterations and distortions of our common name and logo dilute their impact, weaken our identity, and endanger the legal protections afforded our trademarks. Uniform use of our name and logo is essential for creating an internationally recognizable identity and reference for our chapters and members.
To ensure accurate and consistent visual brand identity, the Official AFP Guide to Logo Usage and Brand Protection must be followed.
