3M with other Third Parties
These examples reflect the application of the basic guidelines for communications from a third party when 3M is one of a number of affiliations that are shown together.
• Do not use the authorized relationship artwork. Instead, use just the
3M logo in 3M Red.
• Near the group of affiliated logos include a clarifying statement about the
type of relationship, such as “Authorized Dealer” or “Manufacturers’
• Make sure that the third party logo is more prominent than the 3M logo or
the logos of the other affiliated companies. Scale the 3M logo and the other
affiliate logos in a similar size and group them away from the host third
Expressing the relationship with 3M is not allowed on third-party invoices, nor recommended for personal communications.
Do not use the 3M logo on third party envelopes.
