    Would it be legal to put registered logos on your business cards? Like Stihl and Gravely and Shindaiwa to show that you use professional grade equipment? It seems that it would lend alot of credibility to a business.

    Your assuming that the account knows what those pieces of equipment are. They make sense to us, probably not to them. It's a waste of space, your card needs to have your info on it w/ services you provide.

    I agree that it would probably be a waste of space on a business card, but I have seen some companies with exmark, stihl, etc logos on their trailers or work clothes and have always wondered about that as far as legal and trademarks go.

    The customer for the most part won't know the difference if you are using Stihl or a Homelite.
    Besides, why would you want to advertise someone elses company on YOUR company card?

    ^^^ exactly.... unless they where paying for the cards, ads, etc. some companies do offer coop programs like that, though.
