Rules For Proper Use of 3AfricanSisters® Trademarks

Trademarks are adjectives used to modify nouns; the noun is the generic name of a product or service. For example, 3AfricanSisters® coffee.
As adjectives, trademarks may not be used in the plural or possessive form. An appropriate generic term must appear after the trademark the first time it appears in a printed piece, and as often as is reasonable after that. For example, do not use phrases such as "We offer 3AfricanSisters." The correct use of the trademark is "We offer 3AfricanSisters coffee."
Do NOT use the 3AfricanSisters Trademarks as nouns or verbs. For example, never use "3AfricanSisters" as a noun to describe a style of coffee. It is proper to say "the 3AfricanSisters coffee range." It is not proper to say, "Check out my AfricanSisters."
Always spell and capitalize the first letter 3AfricanSisters trademarks correctly. Do not shorten or abbreviate 3AfricanSisters product names. Do not make up names that contain 3AfricanSisters trademarks. Do not change the spelling, insert hyphens or combine two words into one.
