On This Site

Please note that “Bob’s Service Center” is a fictitious name used to show where service centers may place their own company logo, address, phone number, hours of operation, etc. The examples shown refer to Service Centers.
The Spicer® Brand.
The following information serves to reinforce the Spicer brand. We encourage you to use the files and templates located below, but we ask that you adhere to the specifications included in this guide and that you do not alter any logos or art files. Modifying the elements not only undermines our overall brand image, but it could also jeopardize our legal right to exclusive use of the mark. The logo must occupy a prominent position in the design of any visual communication. Please note as well that it is important to establish a clear space around the logo. The logo may appear hidden if it is crowded by other text or design elements, diminishing the recognizable nature of our brand.
Website Logo Usage
We encourage you to promote yourself as a Dana Authorized Spicer® Off-Highway Service Center on your website, and this site includes effective ways to do so. If you are only planning to use the Spicer logo on your website, we ask that you include the file labeled spicer_web_logo.png. If reversed, please use the file labeled spicer_web_logo_rev.png. In order to preserve the integrity of the Spicer brand, we ask that you use the file as is; keep the height and width of the logo proportional, and do not stretch, squeeze or otherwise alter it in any way.
NOTE: Minimum size (height) for a Primary Aftermarket Brand Logo including the Dana is 3/8 in.
Below are the Pantone and Web-Safe colors that make up the Spicer logo. For more information on Dana aftermarket brand standards, visit www.DanaBrandStandards.com.

For formal communications, letterhead is one of the most important applications of both your brand and the Spicer brand. By adhering to these standards, you can help maintain a consistent appearance.
The standard letterhead size in the United States is 81/2” x 11”. International sizes vary but are based on the standard letterhead specifications. The Spicer brand elements should be positioned from the bottom of the page using the same measurements. Copy is to be centered at least .35˝ from bottom of page.
Even in this high-tech age, the business card remains a standard form of building and maintaining business relationships. Ensuring a consistent look will be beneficial as customers and contacts make a connection between your business and the trusted Spicer name.

Yellow Pages Print Ad
You can download an art file for use in your Yellow Pages ad. The point size of the typography will vary depending on the size of your ad, but it should maintain its proportion to the size of your company’s logo.
When creating an outdoor sign, please remember to make the Spicer logo large enough to fully illustrate the relationship between your company and Spicer.
