Here is a copy of TPC's policy on the use of the chef hat that we should all take heed to. I know that several of us have used it on flyers and at least one person is using it as their avatar. I got this on CC this morning. Chef’s Hat Icon Restrictions: 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.
