The NCCER logo is the visual cornerstone of our organization’s image and communication efforts. It reinforces our position and our identity within the industry. Fundamental to our corporate identity are particular design elements and their placement in various media. As NCCER continues to grow, we recognize the importance of ensuring that all communication materials consistently and accurately reflect our image in all media. These guidelines provide the official source on how to correctly use the NCCER logo.

The NCCER logo is the intellectual property of NCCER and as such may not be reproduced or altered without express permission from NCCER.
The following guidelines govern the license and use of the NCCER logo for all forms of communication, including, but not limited to, print and all forms of electronic media. More detailed guidelines are stated throughout this manual.
NCCER reserves the right to deny or terminate the use of its logo by any entity and for any reason. Any violation of the Logo Guidelines not immediately corrected upon notification shall face appropriate legal action under intellectual property and/or other applicable laws.
Questions regarding permission or the proper use of the NCCER logo should be directed to NCCER marketing at email@example.com or 888.622.3720.
The full-color logo is always preferred. The one-color versions may be used as a substitute for the NCCER full-color logo, but only in the color variations shown above.
NCCER official colors are Pantone® 295 (navy blue) and Pantone® 429 (gray). In applications where use of Pantone® inks is prohibitive or unavailable, a four-color (CMYK) version may be substituted.
Note: Please refer to a Pantone® Color Formula Guide for accurate color representation.
Pantone® 877 should only be used as a substitute for Pantone® PMS 429 when the Pantone® metallic ink will be used in off-set printing. For digital printing, please use the Pantone® 429 color conversions.
To assist designers with color decisions, a secondary color palette is offered below. This palette is meant to be a guide for publications and products and to complement the official NCCER colors.
Print advertising and other collateral materials may vary greatly in design, but accurate application of the NCCER logo will ensure a consistent representation of NCCER’s image.
Occasionally, there will be opportunities to display the NCCER logo that are not described. These applications may include banners, exhibits, displays, plaques, clothing and specialty items. Do not use the NCCER logo in conjunction with other logos without permission from NCCER marketing. Please contact 888.622.3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org for approval.
For the greatest impact and readability, a minimum logo size has been established. The size of the NCCER logo should not be less than one-half inch in width, and proportions should not be altered.
When appearing with other company logos within a document, the NCCER logo must be at least equal in size and color if the other company logo is in color. Standard letter sheet: when the NCCER logo is used on a letter-sized document, the maximum logo size is 1 inch wide.
Unless authorized by NCCER, the logo must be surrounded on all sides by clear space. The clear space should be no less than one-half the width of the logo. Do not print graphics, rules, typography, or other elements in this area. Never use the logo as part of a sentence, phrase, or in combination with other elements, except as outlined in these guidelines.
Maintaining the integrity of the NCCER logo is important. It must be presented in a clear, consistent, and effective manner.
The acceptable font is Calibri - no bold or italic should be applied. The same font rules apply to any text/tagline used in association with NCCER’s logo or identity.
