Order of the Arrow Brand Guidelines

A branding guide has been developed to help chapters, lodges and sections incorporate the Order of the Arrow brand into their communication materials. We are excited to share this new resource and take one more step toward better and more unified OA communications. Please take a moment to download and view the branding guide, as well as the corresponding logo assets.

The guide gives direction for utilizing key OA logo images: the signature, the trademark, the seal and the tagline. The guide also provides guidance on color and font usage, as well as information about embroidery pieces, print materials, and other branded items.

The new branding guide also contains resources for all Arrowmen, lodges and sections to use for year-round promotional materials such as newsletters, emails, websites, flyers and patches. We need your help to strengthen the OA brand as we move into our new century in 2016. By using consistent brand elements and adhering to the published guidelines, we can create a strong, unified voice for our organization.

Please note: the signature logo download links below are provided for the general OA signature that reads "Boy Scouts of America" above "Order of the Arrow." As you will see in the branding guide, the signature allows for customization of this logo with text denoting your specific lodge, section or region. To generate your custom signature logo, please use the widget below.

Feel free to reach out to branding@oa-bsa.org with any questions regarding the use of the OA branding guidelines or resources.

Typography

The OA brand uses two fonts primarily: Museo Sans and Museo Slab. As noted in the brand guide, we use a combination of these fonts for headlines and body copy. You can purchase licenses to these fonts at the following links:

Museo Slab

Museo Sans

Note: You need only to purchase the 300 and 700 weights of each font.

If you would prefer to use our alternative fonts, Gill Sans and Rockwell, you will most likely be able to find them standard in software such as Microsoft Word. If not, we advise purchasing the Museo fonts, rather than purchasing these alternative fonts.
