Guidelines for Proper Usage of the SEMA Logo(s)

  • SEMA encourages ETTN members to post the ETTN Member logo on any personal professional websites and use it on individualized professional-related materials such as letterhead, catalogs, business cards and advertisements.
  • An ETTN member may not use the ETTN Logo to market a particular product, or affix the logo to a product or to product packaging.
  • The ETTN Member logo may never be used by a ETTN member as a "stand-alone"; the logo must clearly say "Member" exactly as it is placed shown to the left.
  • The ETTN Member logo may not, under any circumstances, be distorted in its display; the logo must be vertically positioned as originally intended (not tweaked, turned upside down, etc.).
  • The ETTN Member logo may not be printed in any other color(s) than the original red, black and white scheme. If red is unattainable, then all black is permissible.

If you require a hi-res version of the logo, please email member@sema.org.
