Do they have the new PC logos available for download on CC anywhere? I can't find them. I've been using the logos from the KCN Spring Edition, but they've got a light blue background on them and I'm needing a white background. Thanks :)

Amanda,

They are there. Go to the drop down list under promoting your business. Click on the advertising and publicity guidelines. They are in the margin on the left. HTH.

yes that does help, thank you so much. now, do i save it as a target or just as a picture? which option will i be able to size-down as best as possible?


WAIT! I kept reading and it says you can't use them on anything.. You may not use the chef’s hat icon by itself in any format in any way other than on pre-approved materials you purchase from our licensed merchandise vendors or downloaded from Consultant’s Corner (for example, promotional flyers). Because we want this image and the tagline to become a symbol of what The Pampered Chef® stands for, we must carefully control its use. If you have the chef’s hat icon on your Personal Web Site, use it in e-mail, on flyers or anything else you produce, you must remove it. Um, why would they even offer them to us if we can't use them on anything????? How does that make any sense?

I made a couple of flyers without using the logo and they look like someone did them on their home computer. If we are expected to promote our business, we should be able to use the PC logo on flyers designed to do such. The logos they put on the download center are NOT hi-res. They are so small you almost can't do anything with them. I guess that's the point, though. A hi-res file is a file that you can enlarge, even if it's slightly, and not see the pixels. Their version of hi-res is a joke. (Can you tell I work with graphics? :p )

Okay so why would they put them there to begin with? We see them all over the flyers they put out and if we wanted to, could just cut & paste from those to use in our own creations. So why even put them there to taunt us? To make us think, without reading the fine print, that we can use them as we have been able to in the past?

So, it boils down to this: to have the PC logo on our products (business cards, flyers, etc), we have to order them from the associated vendors (Merrill, Nancys Artwork, etc)?

We CAN use them on flyers we make but we cannot change them in any way. We can't separate the tag line from the logo or use the hat alone for instance. And we always MUST include our full title (Independent Consultant) on all communication so it doesn't look like we are saying that "I am The Pampered Chef".

I agree that the resolution is poor and I don't understand why they don't give us the same resolution that we had in the past.

I saved it as a target and it seems the resolution is higher- try that!

And as Beth said, we can use the logo. When I started, you had to be a Director or higher to use the logo, but of course, right before I promoted they changed it to everyone! Just don't use the tag line or the chef's hat by itself and you are fine!! And you can't give the logo to vendors to make you stuff...like business cards, T-shirts, etc. You have to use the PC vendors for that stuff!

Ooooooooooh. I get it now. :) I misread it to be the entire logo, not the chef hat in itself.. I can see clearly now!! Thank you all soooo much. (This is probably the 20th thread on this.. so I apologize. But I was so worried that if I used it, I would be breaking the rules, so I wanted to ask.)

The logo is available for download from Consultant’s Corner. Click on “Promoting Your Business” and then “Advertising and Publicity Policies.” The logo may not be altered in any way.

You may not use the chef’s hat icon by itself in any format in any way other than on pre-approved materials you purchase from our licensed merchandise vendors or downloaded from Consultant’s Corner (for example, promotional flyers).
