The Made in USA Brand Certification Mark logo is the only certification mark registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for labeling and identifying goods either made or grown in the United States. This is vital news to United States manufacturers, retailers and consumers. It comes at a time when Pocketbook Patriotism (buying American) and American jobs are important topics in the news, around the dinner table and in Washington, D.C.
Conscious consumers are becoming increasingly interested in buying local and purchasing goods made in America because they associate them with American jobs and higher quality.
The Made in USA Brand Certification Mark provides a standard symbol for Made in USA product identification. American companies now have a distinctive registered certification mark for labeling the United States as country of origin on their packaging and goods. When printed on labels by accredited manufacturers, consumers are able to identify at a glance which products are made in the USA.
The Made in USA Brand Certification Mark logo creates the shape of an outstretched hand, while symbolizing the United States flag. The fingers of the hand appear in red as a tribute to the stripes on the flag. Cradled in a palm of blue, a single white star represents unity. The shape of a hand was chosen to stand for the products that are made by the hands of workers at United States companies. The icon appears in the position of a business handshake, which represents the promise of reliability and quality of goods and products made in America.
The Certification Mark is available to be downloaded by U.S. businesses that meet the accreditation standards based on the Federal Trade Commission’s regulations for complying with Made in USA origin claims found at https://www.madeintheusabrand.com/form/.
