Guidelines for Use

Clear Space and Minimum Size

The clearspace and minimum size specified here must be followed for all seal types.

No design elements, other logos or text can infringe on this ‘clear’ area. The clearspace is defined by the specified ‘X-height’.

Background

The seals can be used on any color of background and also over images. Complicated ‘busy’ patterns or images that compete with the seal should be avoided.

Accompanying text

You can include the following accompanying text with your seal, replacing “Business Name” with your company’s name:

Business Name is a member of the Association of Certified Commercial Cannabis Experts

The seal can be used without text if you prefer.

If you include the accompanying text it should be:

  • Placed underneath the seal
  • Spread over two to three lines
  • At least 12px
  • Spaced 0.5 x-height from the seal and the seal clearspace should then be applied below the text;
  • Either black (#000000) or white (#ffffff) and legible against the background 
  • In either Arimo (preferred) or Arial typefaces
Badge text

Do

  • Link the seal back to the ACCCE homepage (https://accce.org/)
  • If the seal is used in a group of other alliance seals/logos, ensure it is a similar size/level of hierarchy 
  • Follow the guidelines specified above
  • Contact us to ask about other uses

Do not

  • Use the seal on a busy or cluttered background
  • Change the color of the seal
  • Use a seal that is different to your alliance membership level
  • Rotate the seal so it is at a different orientation to the rest of the material
  • Add any embellishments to the seal such as outlines, drop shadows or Santa hats
  • Alter the proportions of the seal

Questions
