Designing your own trademark is a great way to make a name for yourself out on the course. It’s almost like creating a brand! There are many creative ways to design a trademark and once you have it finalized, you can brand all your gear! If you already have your own company trademark or logo, spread awareness and put it on your disc or frisbee! You can get a bunch printed to give one to all your co-workers and put on a tournament! Here are some creative ways to incorporate a logo on to your disc or frisbee:
Re-design a Trademark of a Famous Fashion Brand
We often get submissions of disc designs which include copyright images such as, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Supreme (just to name a few). While we’d love to print them, it is highly illegal. A creative way to get the same look, is to tweak the logo and Photoshop your own initials or name into these famous brand logos. Replace Louis Vuitton’s famous LV print with your own initials, or write your name in block letters with red box around it like Supreme does. There are many ways to get the same look while staying within the laws of copyright.
Create a Tag Line as your Trademark
If you don’t want to use your name or initials, tag lines can be a great substitute when creating your brand. Something short and catchy much like Nike’s tag line “Just Do It.” Jon Paache, a FlyDisc Team Member created one for himself which he prints on his discs and gear. It really set’s him aside from other players and gives him the confidence and professionalism on the course. The tag line “Retired of it all” is Jon’s trademark and words he lives by on and off the course.
Use different Backgrounds
If you’re printing multiple discs with the same logo, use different backgrounds to give them all a unique look. You can choose from solid colors, or a color fade, or even a fun pattern from our backgrounds library. If you aren’t feeling the designs we supply, you can upload a background from the web to put your logo over. Whatever you choose, your disc will look great and you will feel great knowing you designed it!
Check out how we put our logo in black or white on top of some backgrounds from our app’s free background library here as some examples. These were designed easily in less than 2 minutes! It really is that easy, so go for it!
