The IBEW Logo and Name:
The IBEW logo, together with the combined parts of the logo and our name, are registered as trademarks with the U.S. Patent Office and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Aside from the International’s own usage, reproduction authorization is granted to local unions for items such as t-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, bumper stickers, signs and stationary.
Requests to reproduce the IBEW logo must come from a Business Manager in the form of a letter on local union stationary addressed to the International Secretary-Treasurer. The request must state the purpose of reproduction and the preferred format of the logo, for example gif, jpeg, eps and vector. To quicken the process the local union’s letter can be faxed to (202) 728-6180 or emailed to Support_Services@ibew.org.
