What we do
We deliver and facilitate the delivery of packages worldwide
We are seeking submissions for a holiday "Season's Greetings from Hawaii" logo design to be printed on our Hawaii Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Boxes. The current logo has been in use since June 2009 and we are looking for a new logo to be printed on boxes that will be mailed during the holiday season. The logo should include the words "Season's Greetings from Hawaii". This design will highlight the attraction and uniqueness of our island location; particularly for those on the U.S. mainland who are in the middle of their winter months. The beach, ocean, mountains, coconut trees and those types of elements unique to our island location are what we are looking for in this logo. Maybe Santa can be in there too. The design cannot contain religious symbols or elements.
Tech Specs
Here are some guidelines for the logo creation. Winning logo will be required to meet government specifications.
*Keep in mind the logo will be printed in two colors max: PMS 485 Red and 294 Blue.
*Finished logo must be provided in EPS or Illustrator and a PDF
*The logo must be no higher than 1.5” or wider than 4.5” (same size of the Priority Mail logo on the large flat rate box). Please maximize use of these dimensions as much as possible.
*Designer must ensure there are no trademark or copyright infringements.
*Submission of the design grants USPS all rights to usage.
*The term "Mele Kalikimaka" cannot be used.
Design Goals
We want to create interest and demand for the Priority Mail Large Flat Rate box; the logo would inspire customers to choose the Large Flat Rate Box for shipping.
Target Audience
USPS Hawaii residents, Hawaii companies that ship locally made Hawaiian products, and recipients (primarily on the mainland) who receive the box with goods from Hawaii.
What makes us unique (USP)
