Client Brand & Embroidery Update
March 15, 2019 by Ryan Trask
Usually we build a logo for a client, we ship the final logo designs off and that's that. However, Adam & Amber Traylor of Hunt to Harvest were so excited about their new brand, that they were gracious enough to send us sample hats to the 3plains team. I thought that was pretty cool of Adam to do, as I think that shows a level of gratitude above and beyond the client relationship.

May 14, 2014 by Ryan Trask
A few potential customers called and asked about putting together a logo for their gun dog training and dog kennel businesses.

Here's one example to show you how to come up an idea and how we can execute.
Copyright or Trademark your Logo
November 21, 2012 by Ryan Trask
Copyrights and trademarks are used to protect your intellectual property against infringement. Copyrights protect works of authorship, such as written work, film, audio, digital files and logos. These usually apply to works you’ve created. Trademarks are used for words, phrases, and symbols that identify a company and distinguish it from others. Because our custom logos include original, and often times commissioned, artwork you may want both a copyright and trademark to protect your logo and your brand.

We've had a lot in the works in the way of custom logos here at 3plains for some time, so we thought it might be a good time to let you take a look at a few of them.

It's really great to be able to share some of these finished designs with you. We can't wait to see them being put to use in the field.
