Slack permits its customers, third-party developers, partners and the media ("you") to use its name, trademarks, logos, web pages, screenshots and other brand features (the Slack "brand features," "marks" or "logos") only in limited circumstances and as specified in these guidelines. By using the Slack marks, you agree to adhere to these guidelines and specifically to the Use Requirements and Terms below. If you have a separate agreement with Slack that addresses use of the Slack brand, that agreement shall govern your use of the Slack marks.
The Slack marks include the Slack name and logo, and any word, phrase, image or other designation that identifies the source or origin of any Slack products
List of trademarks:

“SLACK” text usage guidelines
The company name is “Slack Technologies, LLC.”
When “Slack” is used, use as an adjective followed by a description of our services
Examples: Slack collaboration software, others?
You are entitled to say that your application is integrated with Slack or that you are a Slack Platform Partner if you have an app in the Slack App Directory
Don’t use “Slack” as a noun, verb, plural or possessive. An appropriate generic term must appear after the Slack trademark the first time it appears in a printed piece, and as often as is reasonable after that
Don’t use the Slack marks in a way that suggests a common, descriptive or generic meaning
Don’t register a domain containing the word “slack” or any variation thereof. Deliberate misspellings and transliterations are also not permitted
Do not apply for a trademark that includes the word “slack,” our logo, or any other words or marks similar to our own
Do not use “Slack” or our other trademarks in connection with advertising (search engine or otherwise) without explicit approval from Slack
Don’t use the Slack logo (with or without your company logo)
For usage only within the U.S., use the ® symbol on the most prominent use of the word Slack (Slack®), and say “Slack is a registered trademark and service mark of Slack Technologies, Inc.” at the bottom of the page on which the Slack word mark first appears
For international use, do not use the ® symbol. Instead say “Slack is a trademark and service mark of Slack Technologies, Inc., registered in the U.S. and in other countries.” at the bottom of the page on which the Slack word mark first appears
On all marketing materials, include “Copyright 2023 Slack Technologies, LLC.” marking at bottom, right justified, for all marketing materials. Font size cannot be smaller than 7 pts.
Ensure that there is adequate space between the logo and surrounding elements
For the horizontal logo, the clear space around it should always be greater than or equal to the length of one pill shape in the octothorpe
For the stacked logo, the clear space around it should always be greater than or equal to the length of one pill shape in the octothorpe
Please don’t modify the marks or use them in a confusing way, including suggesting sponsorship or endorsement by Slack, or in a way that confuses Slack with another brand (including your own)
Don’t use any logos or similar imagery to represent Slack other than the examples we have provided in the Slack Brand folder
Don’t use a Slack asset as a substitute for your own — if you don’t have a logo, please do not co-opt ours
Don’t overprint or obstruct any part of the logo
Don’t add special effects to the logo, including animation
Don’t use old versions or any other marks or logos to represent our brand
Don’t distribute or otherwise make available our logos, marks or assets
Don’t crop the logo
Don’t outline logotype

Don’t use different colors
Don’t change the size or orientation of the octothorpe and logotype in relation to each other
No disparaging or objectionable use is permitted
Screenshots of the Slack software and website are permitted for instructive, educational or illustrative purposes
Don’t alter screenshots, except to resize

Don’t use screenshots that contain third-party content without the permission of the third party
Don’t use screenshots that contain an image of an identifiable individual or other personally identifiable information
Visual design of your website or application
When designing your own website, we encourage you to be yourself. But please do not copy or imitate the look and feel of Slack products or sites. Doing so may create user confusion or imply the endorsement of Slack.
Please do not use, display, mirror or frame (including in meta- tags or hidden text) Slack websites, or any individual element of Slack websites, or any other Slack assets, or the layout and design of any page or form contained on a page
If utilizing the Slack API to support your service or application, you must avoid suggesting your service or application is produced or supported by Slack. If we believe ambiguity exists, we may request that you state clearly that your service is “not created by, affiliated with, or supported by Slack Technologies, LLC.”
If we ask you to include such a message on your page, you must ensure that it is displayed on the initial page load and is clearly visible on either a dark or light background. Text should be a minimum of 15pt. and a minimum of 80% opacity in black or white or in color.
Do not use or imitate the distinctive “look and feel” of Slack or other identifiable and unique visual elements of the Slack brand assets, Slack software or www.slack.com website, including (but not limited to) the color combinations, graphics, sounds, icons, typefaces or other stylization
Do not use the Slack assets or any other confusingly similar words or marks on any apparel, toy, product or other merchandise
If you’re interested in purchasing Slack-branded goods, we sell a range of official products in the Slack Shop. All proceeds are donated to charity.
