01 Brand Attributes Our brand attributes are at the core of our brand. They summarize our promise to our customers, showing people not only what we do, but how we do it. Everything that bears the FedEx name should live up to these attributes. Simplifying It’s easy to work with FedEx. We don’t waste anyone’s time. Our procedures are straightforward, and our communications are clear. Optimizing Every FedEx customer has different needs. We find the right solution — and the right price — for each customer’s business. Inventive Global business constantly changes. So does FedEx. As we invent new solutions, we lead the way in operations, technology and e-commerce. Connecting FedEx makes connections. Our networks link people, packages and information around the clock and around the world. Certain Our customers don’t have time for “almost.” They demand certainty. FedEx delivers.

02 Signature Elements Our signatures are the most prominent expression of the FedEx brand. That’s why it’s vitally important to use them correctly and consistently. Each signature is a piece of custom-designed artwork. For every signature, use only approved artwork downloaded from Operating Company Signatures Each FedEx operating company has its own signature, consisting of two elements: the FedEx wordmark and the operating company descriptor. Collective Signature This signature consists of the wordmark without a descriptor (see page 07). Wordmark Signature Descriptor Go to > > FedEx Company > Basic Elements > Signature/Logos > Elements

03 Sizing the Registration Mark The registered service mark symbol (®) is attached to each FedEx signature. The symbol should never be smaller than its preferred size, which is 5 points in diameter. It is positioned on the baseline of the FedEx wordmark at a distance equal to its radius. t pt 5 .p 25 Baseline Go to > > FedEx Company > Basic Elements > Signature/Logos > Registration Mark

04 Signature Configurations Each of our operating companies has a preferred signature configuration; use it whenever possible. However, our signatures must also accommodate a wide range of uses, from business cards to aircraft. To meet all business needs, and special-use (horizontal) configuration is also available.

05 Signature Clear Space Our company stands out from the crowd, and so does our signature. To create maximum impact, keep the space around the FedEx signature free from other text and graphics. The clear space on each side of the signature should always be equal to or greater than the x-height of the FedEx wordmark.
