Style Guide

The rules are very simple.

  • No usage of copyrighted images (this means all art should be original or at the very least significantly altered from its original format).
  • Include 501st Legion logo and/or mention of the 501st Legion
  • Include the www.501st.com
  • Use the LFL official disclamer when possible (see below)
  • Logos should remain unmodified Logo Archives
  • Include proper Legion member ID and photographer credit when using images.

The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans. While it is not sponsored by Lucasfilm Ltd., it is Lucasfilm's preferred Imperial costuming group. Star Wars, its characters, costumes, and all associated items are the intellectual property of Lucasfilm. ©<insert current year here> Lucasfilm Ltd. & ™ All rights reserved.

Logos

EPS LOGOS (for Print): The following eps files are intended for PRINT USE, and work well in cases where the logo must be reproduced with sharp detail or at large sizes (such as banners or posters). Because the logo is usually seen on a dark background, the color versions of these eps files have a black box beneath the actual logo art. This black box may be deleted to accomodate the background of your choice. Because of the nature of vector art, these files may be used at any size. Always remember to resize proportionately. We strongly recommend the use of Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator software to resize these files. Right click with your mouse on the text description (not the image) of the logo that you want, and select "Save File As" (or equivalent) to your local computer.

LOGO USAGE:

The files provided here are the ONLY formats that are currently authorized for use. Please do not alter or create your own versions of these logos. Because of obscurity of detail and text at smaller sizes, the Master Round logo itself should not be used in any situation where it appears smaller than 1/2" (1.27cm) including when used as part of the Master Round/Banner Logo.

Logo No No's

Some other tips:

  • DO try to use the Master Banner Logo and Master Stacked Logo on dark backgrounds.
  • DO try to link back to www.501st.com through the image.
  • DO try to use the logo along as well as your unit logo.
  • DO NOT put the Legion logo too close to another logo. Try to maintain a clearance of 1/2 the vertical height on all sides.
  • DO NOT use excessive occurances of any 501st logo on the same page.
  • DO NOT use the logo as a repeating pattern.
