Mark Certificates

Put your mark on email marketing.

What are Verified Mark Certificates?

Verified Mark Certificates (VMCs) allow companies to render their brand logo next to the “sender” field in email clients—visible even before the message is opened. Think of it as the email equivalent of the blue checkmark on Twitter or the verified badge on Instagram. 

How does it work?

Logo-verified email is part of a groundbreaking initiative—in cooperation with Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI) and email client providers— to create a more consistent, authenticated and visually compelling email experience for both businesses and consumers. Here’s how it works:


Five benefits for early adopters

  1. Ensure customers see your logo in their inbox—even before they open the email.
  2. Provide an additional layer of protection against identity-targeted attacks through DMARC compliance.
  3. Deliver a more authentic, recognizable and unified brand experience from email to conversion.
  4. Distinguish your messaging from the clutter.
  5. Improve deliverability and open rates by 10%.*

What can you do now?

Become DMARC compliant.

Check the current status of your domains. To qualify for a VMC, you must have a DMARC record with “p=quarantine” or “p=reject.”
We recommend using the domain checking tool from our partner Valimail.
If you need help setting up DMARC, here’s a helpful step-by-step guide.

Ensure your logo is properly registered and formatted.

Before we can issue a VMC, your logo must be registered with the trademark office so we can validate ownership.
Learn how to format your logo on our blog.

Make sure your logo is trademarked.

VMCs can only be issued to organizations with trademarked logos. It can be a lengthy process, so we recommend getting started as soon as possible. Here’s how. Have more questions? Reach out to our team today so you can be ready for launch.
