Trademark & Brand Policy

Usage Guidelines

HD Industrial Design’s trademarks are protected, and may not be used without our written permission. HD Industrial Design’s trademarks include, but are not limited to, HD Industrial Design, our HD Industrial Design logo, and other graphics, phrases or images that identify the source or origin of HD Industrial Design’s products. Do not alter or modify the marks or use them in a confusing way that suggests that HD Industrial Design sponsors or endorses you or your products or services, or confuses the HD Industrial Design brand with another brand.

You may use our HD Industrial Design wordmarks in truthful and factual statements to communicate: (1) that your product is “made for use with” or “compatible with” HD Industrial Design’s products (more about this is below). If you are an authorized HD Industrial Design dealer or reseller, you should review your agreement with HD Industrial Design to understand your authorization to use HD Industrial Design marks.

Accessories, Applications, and Merchandise

Please note that we generally don’t permit use of our marks on accessories, applications or merchandise (or anything else). Merchandise includes anything you create or build such as: t-shirts, hats, cars, etc. We love your enthusiasm for our products but please don’t put our marks (including wordmarks and logos) on your custom creations with prior authorization from us.

If you are making or developing something that can be used with our products you may make factual, truthful statements about how your item works with or is made to be used with a HD Industrial Design product. Below are the ways in which you may use the HD Industrial Design name for this purpose:

“Works with HD Industrial Design’s HD-200 OR “Works with the HD Industrial Design Press Series”
“Made to be used with HD Industrial Design’s HD-200” or “Made to be used with HD Industrial Design Press Series”

Our marks may not be used as part of your product name and must be used in a way that appears less prominent than your product or service name. Your use must not create the impression that HD Industrial Design endorses, sponsors, approves of, or is in any way associated with your product or service. Please do not use our marks in any way that would damage the marks, be misleading to consumers, or be derogatory to HD Industrial Design or its goods.

In all materials that contain one of the above phrases, you must also make sure the following text appears where it can be seen by someone purchasing such an item: "HD Industrial Design, and the HD Industrial Design logo, are trademarks or registered trademarks of HD Industrial Design"

Websites/Fansites

Please do not apply for a trademark containing HD Industrial Design or one of our other marks, and do not use HD Industrial Design in your website name or register a domain name that contains HD Industrial Design, or any of our other marks, or misspellings or other variations of our marks. Your website or fansite must not copy the distinctive HD Industrial Design look and feel, as we do not want anyone to be confused about whether it’s your site or our site.
