Campus Licensing Process
Arkansas Tech University student organizations and university departments who wish to order items with any of the Arkansas Tech logos or the university name must go through the licensing approval process before placing your order.
STEPS FOR APPROVAL
- Select a Licensed University Vendor.*For t-shirts, MARCOMM will assist in the bid process to get you the best price. This is required for orders using university funds. Foundation and Agency purchases do not require a bid.
- Request Artwork if you need it or complete the Artwork Approval Form to submit a proof of artwork you've created.
- Once the request form is received, MARCOMM will review your submission and/or provide artwork options to you. You will receive an email when your submission is reviewed.
- Complete the ATU Controller's office Student Prize/Giveaway Form for approval. *This is required for items using departmental funds.
- Contact your vendor to place your order. Send final proof to the Arkansas Tech University Licensing Manager prior to product production.
Other Important Information
- Typically, the review process is 1-2 university business days. Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure compliance with Arkansas Tech University policies.
- If your vendor artwork/product proof is not approved, but will be with corrective changes, you will receive an email clarifying the changes needed for approval. It is your responsibility to ensure the vendor makes the corrective changes and submits the design on Learfield Licensing Partners’ “Trademarx” website or directly to MARCOMM.
- Merchandise produced without authorization infringes on Arkansas Tech University’s trademarks and will be subject to all available legal remedies.
- Items included in the above approval process include Arkansas Tech University marks on apparel (such as t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, etc.), gift items (such as mugs, key chains, jewelry, etc.) and miscellaneous items (such as flash drives, bottled water, etc.).
- Most orders by student organizations or on campus departments are not subject to the 12% royalty fee. Items being sold for profit may be subject to royalty fees.
