Sometimes the name of the company is accompanied by the line „The World’s Most Secure Card Identity System” or „Part of the HID Global” and the HID small logo.
Fargo Logo Font
The Fargo Logo’s font is one very straight forward, simple, but it is not a classic font or a normal font. The letters are rounded and the middle horizontal lines from the A and R are not united with the vertical line, it is interrupted. The font is special and easy to recognize, basicly because of the simplicity of it.
Fargo Logo Color
The color used in the Fargo Logo is somewhere between a royal blue and a steel blue, but it’s a simple color that represents the company. The color blue itself signifies ink and it is easy to link it to the printer industry.
When it is accompanied by the „The World’s Most Secure Card Identity System” or „Part of the HID Global” and the HID small logo, the font used is black and the small HID logo is white on a background the same color as the Fargo Logo writing.
