    How to use our logo

    • Always use original digital artwork files. Never recreate or distort the logo.
    • The logo should appear in its corporate colours. Use PMS 485 red and PMS 280 blue or their CMYK equivalent. The black and white version of the logo is to be used only when colour is not an option.
    • Always maintain minimum clearances around the logo. Retain a minimum of 1 square unit of clear space around the logo.
    • Use the appropriate version of the logo based on the language context, for example English first or French first. The logo should always remain stand-alone and may not be combined with any other objects, such as other logos, words, graphics, photos, slogans, numbers, design features or symbols.
    • The logo may not be used in any way that might be seen as an endorsement of the products and services of a third party. The logo may not be used in any way that might suggest that any non-Canada Post materials, activities or events are sponsored, endorsed or licensed by Canada Post, unless otherwise approved in writing.

    Clear space

    Place the logo using a proportion based on the blue band height as a guide, and make sure there’s clear space on all sides of the logo of at least 1 square unit. This square unit is depicted in light grey in the above illustration. Always aim to place the logo on the right-hand side.
