NFC Logo

It is highly recommended that all NFC tags have visuals to indicate the tag is an NFC tag. While NFC does have an official logo/symbol as established by the NFC Forum; it is not commonly used and alternatives are often used.

If NFC tags are being printed by the GoToTags Store for customers, GoToTags will enforce its artwork trademark policy.

N-Mark

The NFC Forum has established the N-Mark symbol to be used to identify NFC. However, it is rarely used in practice. In GoToTags’ opinion it is not a good symbol because it can be easily confused with the Nespresso logo. If the N-Mark is used, the NFC Forum’s branding guidelines must be followed. Contact the NFC Forum for additional information.
