  • "Question that are intended to propose ideas, solicit opinion or provoke discussion are better asked in an alternative forum." – Mohith Shrivastava, Dave Humm, Vamsi Krishna, Himanshu, Santanu Boral
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Why not, as long as you hold the certification! :) – Raul Feb 21 '17 at 22:53
  • I don't see how this Question "proposes ideas, solicits opinions, or provokes discussion." It is a specific question with a single correct answer. Although it is business-related rather than implementation-related, it seems inconsistent to allow questions about how to best prepare for cert exams (not implementation-related) but not questions like this one. Thoughts? – Brent Bow Feb 23 '17 at 16:07

You sure are. The WebAssessor page you log in to (with the credentials provided in the "congratulations" email) to download the certification logo files states:

The logo may be used on e-mail signatures, websites and other printed materials, as long as the certification logo is not modified in any way.

More details on the use of the logo can be found in the Salesforce.com Certification Program Agreement, which says:

Upon successful completion of the Exam... SFDC grants You a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable certification designation (“Certification Designation”) and the right of use the applicable Certification Designation on business cards, resumes, and letterhead. You may not use the Certification Designation in any way that: i) may be construed to establish an affiliation between SFDC and any third parties other than You; or ii) negatively impacts SFDC's reputation or goodwill. SFDC retains all rights, title and interests in the Certification Designation. Nothing herein shall be construed to grant any other rights to You.

It States that you can use it on Business cards. Check point #2.
