Badge Display Guidelines

Badges are designed to work great on a white background, which means it works well for most printed material and many web sites. But, of course, you may have a need to display in other settings without a white background. 

Practical uses for displaying your badge include:

Please adhere to these 4 guidelines when displaying your badge:

Appear in Entirety

The badge must always appear in its entirety. You may not separate out any components or display only part of the badge.


You may use a “grayscale” version of the logo in order to print within a monochrome environment such as a black and white laser printer. In digital media such as a web site, the badge should always be displayed in color. Only use a monochrome version when necessary.


When placing the badge inside a container or near other design elements, make sure to give the badge a comfortable amount of space. Use the “X” in the example below as a guide for establishing the minimum amount of space around the entire logo. In this case, the X is equivalent to the height of the bar across the middle of the logo.

White Interior

The interior of the badge should always be white. When using it on a colored background, do not fill the badge interior with any other color.
