Our Affinity Miniature Chair Logos are made exclusively for our Miniature College Chairs. These Logos are exact replicas of the full-size logos and seals that we would install in our full-size college chairs. We are able to make Miniature College Chairs that are exact replicas of the our full-size chairs. However, the logo techniques for full-size university chairs are not the same. Several of our clients have ordered both miniature and full-size chairs for the same projects. It is not uncommon for nonprofits to give large chairs to the the recipient of an “endowed” chair and a miniature replica of the same full-size chair to the donors who funded the endowed chair.
We build Miniature Alumni Chairs that are exact replicas of two styles our full-size college chairs: Affinity Traditional Captain’s Chair (ATCC) and Affinity Classic Alumni Chair (ACAC). We embellish these mini chairs with miniature logos in our popular colors Satin Silver or Satin Gold or a colorful custom logo.
Before you order a Miniature College Chair, carefully consider the specific institutional logo or seal or other art that you will want to install in the front of the crown of your Miniature Alumni Chair.
We make logos representing the following institutions available at no additional cost: Dartmouth, Colorado State, Cleveland State, Marquette, Ohio State, Tuck , West Point, UC Irvine, University of Denver, Wyoming, and Xavier. Alumni Chairs is licensed by these institutions.
We consider logos and seals for other schools, institutions, and business as “special”. We can create special logos and seals providing we obtain permission by the institution of interest and will require a charge for preparing the logo for installation in your miniature college chair. We rely on our clients to gain permission and to obtain the necessary art in the proper format. We definitely help our clients to gain permissions and obtain the logo art, but we ask for our clients’ involvement. There are 2,500 four-year colleges and universities, and it is not possible for us to maintain licensure or possess art for all schools. However, it is very likely that we will be approved by your institution upon request. Special miniature logos are created at the client’s expense. Please call us for an estimate.
Depending on our relationship and the client’s relationship to the institution and our permission to the institution’s logo or seal (see Trademarks), royalty charges may be required based on the value of the orders (less shipping expenses). Royalties normally range from 0% to 15%. Royalty fees that are assessed to Alumni Chairs will be added to the client invoice. If you seek a chair for internal use by the institution, royalty fees may be unnecessary.
We offer many options, logos, various sizes, multiple materials which make orders of miniature collegiate chairs quite complex. The difficulty of finishing miniature college chairs and the tiny size and fragility of miniature logos make the process challenging. As you can imagine, a tiny logo 9mm – 14mm in height and containing fine lines and minute components can be quite challenging. …but we can make them. Therefore, we ask for ample time to produce your mini chairs. Institutions often request a miniature on a very short timeline. Tight deadlines can be problematic, and we ask institutions to plan well ahead of their important presentation or special event. We seek 6-8 weeks to create Miniature Chairs, their Logo Art, and their Bases.
We firmly believe in keeping logos simple and successful! One can pursue detailed and colorful logos, but they are more expensive and there is more that can go wrong. So, we always recommend that our clients keep things simple.
Our miniature logos are somewhat a one-time charge, and a single batch (quantity of 25-50 logos) of these images can be used on multiple mini chairs, given the proper permissions. Although these logos can be used on subsequent mini-chair orders, these images are perishable before installation and may expire within 4-12 months. Please ask us about the longevity and perishability of these special logos (before installation, only) in order to ensure your success and satisfaction.
Please be aware that the special images that we create for your Miniature College Chairs are priced separately from the Miniature College Chairs. Special images will appear as separate items on our invoices.
