How many of you actually put Oracle Certified logo on your resume/CV?

I cleared OCPJP 6 just a few days ago with 81%. The logos have recently become available for me to download on certview account.
My question is... is it wise to put the logo image on your resume? I am already mentioning that I cleared OCPJP in the certificate section of my resume.
How do the recruiters esp the ones in USA (since I'll be going there for my MS) look at OCPJP certification?

Please let me know. Thanks.

I've seen the Oracle/Sun logo maybe twice looking at resumes. Many people mention a cert, but using the logo is rare. Which makes you look a little clueless.

I passed SCJP, but only ever used the logo that I got when I passed SCEA. In my opinion there are too many candidates who pass SCJP for the logo to have unique value on your resume.

Jeanne is fortunate to have seen the logo used twice. I've seen it used in a resume at all

it depends on you. I never put these logos. I just mention the certification because it looks pompous. I have seen resumes where they even write percentage in SCJP in resume and when you ask them questions in interview they are dumb. So one should focus more on justifying rather than being pompous.
