Event Guidance

Signage and literature for events must be reviewed and approved by the White Cap Events Team prior to production.

Clear Space & Minimum Size

In all applications, the clear space around the logo should equal the width of the letter H in the logo. Any background inside this clear space should be even, unpatterned, and free from typography or any other graphical elements. If the logo is used directly on a photographic image, the clear space area must still provide good contrast between the background and logo, as well as be even in tone and pattern-free. For maximum impact in graphic environments, the minimum clear space must be maintained. The minimum width that may be reproduced is 1.25 inches for the logo. For special usage at sizes smaller than this, contact the White Cap Marketing Department.

Logo Misuse

It is critical for all logos to consistently appear as specified in this document. Improper use dilutes and lessens its value as an instantly recognizable brand. The following are a few examples of how NOT to use the White Cap logo. Such deviations weaken our brand. Any modifications to the White Cap brand must be approved by contacting the White Cap Marketing Department.
