Content Usage Guidelines:

  • Participation in the use of Tier 1 event lock-ups is optional.
  • The Home Depot lock-up must be used if you are calling out a Tier 1 event.
  • Strictly no vendor-created lock-ups are permitted for Tier 1 events
  • When incorporating the event lock-up, please do not:
    • Stretch or distort the proportions
    • Change the scale of letters/words
    • Alter the colour of the lock-up
    • Place the lock-up at an angle other than how it presents within the source file
    • Modify transparency
    • Reproduce or change the typeface
