The use of CAN member logos is a benefit reserved to active members of the association.  Any member whose membership has lapsed must remove CAN logos from their website and any associated marketing materials within (48) hours of the lapse or termination of their membership.  The presence of a membership logo on a CAN member's website or marketing materials designates membership in the association; it is not intended to be an endorsement of members' businesses or products.  Any implication otherwise is strictly prohibited.


As an organization, CAN strives to educate consumers on the benefits of handcrafted products. Our new Membership criteria, along with a new series of Member seals, allow us to serve our growing industry in a much broader sense. And, the new seals will allow Members to promote specific products in conjunction with these seals -- bringing added attention to their features.  Members will be offered a variety of options for their membership graphics -- depending upon what product or designation that they wish to promote.  All logos should be linked to the association website -


Print quality logos are available upon request.
