Each institution and organization is represented by at least one special, protected logo or trademarked image. We support the primary images of each entity which we represent via logo chairs. …and only Affinity Classics can build official, colorful images into collegiate furniture through TrueColor Logos™, our proprietary process by which we install bright, colorful Official College Emblems, and other images that represent colleges, universities, businesses, and organizations, in true Pantone™ Colors. Screen-printing and Engraving are available in our Traditional College Chairs.
In the case of The Ohio State University, we offer ten unique logos. These logos are available on each of the chairs that we make for Ohio State. We encourage you to request new logo chairs, and we will consult with your favorite institution regarding the viability of and permission to develop logo chairs of particular interest to you. We will install official logos and other images of your school or organization at a variety of locations on our custom college chairs. Images can include your school’s official college seal, college logo, and text.
In our Classic College Chairs, Affinity Classics can build official colorful images into our collegiate logo chairs through our TrueColor Logos™ process. Logos are wear-resistant and UV-resistant. While other companies utilize quick processes like simple laser-engraving and silk-screening, we put real color into our custom college chairs; our process is more durable, more colorful, and more precise. Screen-printing and Engraving are not available on our Classic College Chairs. For special orders, we can insert collegiate medallions according to your preference in a custom project.
Traditional College Chair logos can be enhanced with any of four logo techniques:
- Screen-printing – affordable, rapid process
- Engraving with Brilliant Gold or Bright Silver color – affordable; slightly more time-consuming process
- TrueColor Logos™ – more expensive technique, one-time charge; time consuming; most colorful logo technique
- Collegiate medallions – for special orders only; we can insert collegiate medallions according to your preference
All Logo Chairs include at least one logo installation. Some colleges, departments, professional schools, and organizations enjoy traditions of multiple logos and images that can be installed on a single logo chair. We can install secondary logos on the rear of our chairs as you request, providing that the institution in question will approve that particular combination of logos. The general rule for second logos is to charge an extra $49-75, depending on the technique and complexity of the second logo.
This pricing of logos pertains to standard logos that we have already developed for installation in our chairs. Clients who request new or custom logos face a different set of costs. Each client may have a well-established logo, but we need to make it workable for installation into our chairs. Some logos are suitable for installation with certain finishes while others are not (small, fine lines may be difficult in screen printing and engraving). Compatibility can depend on the color(s) of backgrounds and logo margins. When we develop art for an institution that promises future chairs, the cost of art development may be justified. Special art for a single logo chair is often expensive and sometimes prohibitive. Some university trademark offices will disallow certain logos, colors, and colors of text on finishes of certain colors. We encourage Institutions to discuss logos carefully with us in order to manage expectations and ensure satisfaction.
The cost of developing logo art that is new to our company will be determined by the following:
- The institution that the chair will represent
- Product line: Traditional or Classic
- Logo technique: Our colorful, proprietary TrueColor Logos™ technique, screen printing, engraving, and inserted metallic medallion
- Number of colors to display in the logo art
- Degree of fine detail in logos
- Whether the particular colors or specific effects are possible to duplicate
Each client’s ability to fund the development of the new, logo may be critical. The client may have a well-established logo, but we need to make it workable for installation in our chairs. Cost of implementing a color logo can be a one-time charge ranging from $50 to $600. Some logos are suitable for installation with certain finishes while others are not. Compatibility can depend on the color(s) of backgrounds and logo margins. When we develop art for an institution that promises future chairs, the cost of art may be justified. Special art for a single chair can sometimes be expensive and sometimes prohibitive. For “one-off” chairs, screen printing and engraving are often the most economical choice.
Whether full-size college chairs or miniature chairs, we are able to deliver the same high-quality, colorful logos with TrueColor Logos™.
Some university trademark offices will disallow certain logos, colors, and colors of text on finishes of certain colors; institutions can be very particular. The trend among many colleges and universities is to reserve institutional seals for internal, institutional communications. Increasingly, seals are being withheld from commercial products.
Also, if your family members have attended multiple colleges or rival universities, you can, now, have a College Chair, Rocking Chair, or Deacon’s Bench with NO LOGO in order to make everyone happy, keep the peace, and offend no one! (Of course, we may be able to install multiple college logos in a single chair in order to make them even happier!)
