A few Members have submitted and been accredited as a "ILDA Accredited Professional Lasershow Company". IAPLC companies may use the "ILDA Professional" logo. To obtain copies of this, an IAPLC company should contact ILDA.


ILDA logos: Permitted and prohibited uses

Here are examples of permitted and prohibited uses of the ILDA and ILDA Member logos. If you have specific questions, contact ILDA.

Logo usage by ILDA Corporate and Nonprofit Members

  • It IS permitted for Corporate and Nonprofit members to use the ILDA Member logo on advertisting, brochures, websites and other promotional material. The logo must be used only to indicate membership, as discussed below.

Logo usage by ILDA Individual/Hobbyist and Student Members
  • It IS permitted for Individual/Hobbyist or Student members to use the ILDA Member logo on personal websites or other non-commercial material or purposes.
  • It IS permitted for Individual/Hobbyist and Student members to use the ILDA Member logo if you are a freelancer selling your own services, in a one-person company or consultancy.
  • It IS NOT permitted for Individual/Hobbyist or Student members to use the ILDA Member logo for selling products, or for selling services of a company with more than one person, or for other commercial material or purposes. This is because these two categories of membership are not for commercial (selling/promotional) use.

Do not use logos after ILDA Membership has expired

  • It IS NOT permitted to continue to use the ILDA Member logo once membership has expired. (Of course, we hope members will renew each year and not have to worry about this!)
  • If membership has expired, the logo must be removed from websites and any new material printed or produced after expiration. It is acceptable to continue to use old printed material within a reasonable time such as one to two years after membership expiration.

Do not use logos for products or advertising

  • It IS NOT permitted to put any ILDA logo on a product or advertising for a product, unless 1) it is the ILDA Member logo AND 2) it is next to the ILDA member's name, thus clearly indicating that the ILDA Member logo goes with the member's name and not with the product.
  • It IS NOT permitted to use any ILDA logo or ILDA's name to imply that a product is somehow approved or certified by ILDA.
  • It IS NOT permitted to use any ILDA logo to indicate a product has an ILDA-compatible connector. This is an unapproved use of the logo with a product. (You CAN state in text that the connector is "ILDA compatible" with a small "c" on "compatible". See below.)
