Important Note: Only currently active members may use the AWCI logo, marketing tools, referral directory and links to this website. These materials cannot be altered except where customization opportunities have been offered within the artwork for member use.
Use the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute logo on your website, stationery and marketing tools. This tells your customers:
- You are a current member in the national association for industry professionals
- You support a set of business ethics and technical standards
- You take pride in your profession
Beyond this literal statement of membership, when you proudly display your participation in an industry association, it instills confidence in your customers. It also speaks volumes about the value you place in your reputation, integrity and professionalism.
We offer posters and a AWCI logo sticker designed for your customer entrance areas. This will announce to your clientele and vendors that you are part of an organization of industry professionals who adhere to a set of ethical principles and technical standards.
AWCI Window Sticker
The window logo sticker will be mailed to you upon joining or reinstating your AWCI membership. Each year with your membership packet you will receive a sticker for the year of your membership to add to your window sticker. (If you need additional logo stickers, these are available in our online store for $1 each.)
AWCI Certified Poster
This is available to all watchmakers and clockmakers who are certified and maintain their certification status. Proudly display this in your lobby. This will demonstrate to potential customers that you have proven your aptitude in servicing modern precision timepieces to the high standards required by industry and the finest brands.
