You may know us as Bold, but we do business as Bold Commerce and often use the names of our other divisions: Bold Apps and Bold Custom Solutions. We use our main Bold logo for our business, as well as all of its divisions.
For icons or when a square logo is required, we use the "B" only icon. The B is in white, surrounded by a square in the same red as the main logo.
