QUICK TIPS

COLOR

Our official color is Pantone 202. If your not sure what that means, choose black. Don’t make promo items in burgundy, crimson red, tomato red, brick red, or red.

SPACING

Make sure to leave white space around the logo.  Use at least one “C” width for spacing.

PLEASE DON'T

Don’t alter the Central States logo or place it on a colored or patterned background.  Do not stretch, squeeze, recolor, pattern, screen or otherwise distort the logo.

FONTS

Do not type anything in the Copperplate Gothic font. Choose any sans serif font like Helvetica, Arial, etc.

FILE TYPES

Check with your vendor if you are uncertain which logo to use, or send your vendor a link to this page. If you have any questions, contact the marketing department at marketing@centralstatesmfg.com.

  • JPG files – JPG’s are probably what you are looking for if you are using Microsoft Word or Power Point. A tshirt vendor might also request this type of file, depending on their processes. If a vendor requests a pdf, it is appropriate to make them aware that you have the logo in a higher quality EPS file if they can use it.

 

  • EPS files – EPS files are high resolution vector files. You most likely will not be able to use these on your computer in Microsoft programs. This file type is intended for vendors who are creating banners, signs, etc. Please supply your vendor with a link to this page so they can download it themselves.
  • PDF files – PDF’s are used for a variety of applications. They are high resolution and may be used when you are unable to use a EPS file.

 

  • PNG file – PNG files are low resolution and mainly used for web applications only. You may need a transparent PNG file for your powerpoint. Do not use this file type for anything that will be printed.
