If only one color is used in the reproduction, then the entire Word Mark should be printed in 100% color. For instance, if Black is the only color used, the entire Word Mark should appear in 100% Black.

If the background is darker than 50% color, then the entire Word Mark may be reproduced as a reverse out, or 100% white over the dark background.

The Word Mark must never be reproduced in screens or tints, and should always be reproduced in solid colors.
