Before you read my reply, let me frame this discussion that ACE is a non-profit, with limited resources and assets. However, our trademarked logo is one of our most valuable assets. It is the job of all ACE officials to protect our logo. Please keep this in mind when you read the our reply.
ACE's logo guidelines are quite extensive (15 pages) and very restrictive. The key is IF ACE gave you permission to use the logo, you would have to use the one ACE provided and it would have to be produced with 100% accuracy. Considering we are talking about embroidery, the only way I can see this happening is if it were done by a computer-controlled machine (to ensure the accuracy required). In addition, you would have to follow all the other ACE logo guidelines as well - and I suspect you not find all of them acceptable.
If you can provide documentation proving production with 100% accuracy, Stacey and/or I would be happy to send your request to the ACE Executive Committee, and we would share with you all the other logo guidelines you would be bound to follow.
Please note I did not
create the logo guidelines, but part of Stacey's & my job is to ensure the guidelines are always followed.
I hope you understand.
