It can be challenging to understand the difference between a "Brand" and a product. The team at Velcro has a great set of videos (not safe for school) that explain it well.


The product is "digital task cards", "digital games", or "digital apps", whatever you made using our platform. The "Brand" is Boom Cards.


These are the rules for using the Boom Cards™ and Boom Learning℠ logos, badges, trademarks, and service marks (the "Marks"). The rules exist to avoid confusing customers about what they are buying.


By using our marks you are agreeing to the terms in this Solution. Failure to abide by these terms immediately terminates your rights to use the Marks. 


The Word Marks

Our marks are words consistently used to identify Boom Learning (a dba of Omega Labs Inc.) as a unique source of a specific good.


The Boom Learning℠ service mark, refers the following Boom Learning services.

  • Boom Learning℠ store/marketplace

  • Boom Learning℠ platform

The Boom Cards™ trademark, refers to products available in the Boom Learning℠ store

  • Boom Cards™ task cards
  • Boom Cards™ decks

You may use the Boom Cards™ trademark to describe the resources you create using the Boom Learning℠ platform.


These marks are important business assets of Omega Labs Inc. dba Boom Learning Inc.
