Often a local PWOC will use the logo for a variety of purposes. And most of the time a local group will add their name to the logo. Does it’s shape and size easily fit to several venues, i.e. coffee mugs, t-shirts, notebook covers, etc. When choosing typography in design consider selecting one that is free to download.

Lastly, when you submit a logo to The Hub at PWOC you are giving this site, and its users the right to use, re-use, publish, re-publish in whole or in part, for editorial, commercial, promotional, and/or trade purposes. You are also waiving any right to inspect or approve any copy that is used in connection with the artwork.
