University Departments

Water Tower

Departments must use a licensed vendor to produce any merchandise or apparel with the Tarleton State University name, trademarks or other identifying feature. This applies to:

  • Department/organization's own use (staff shirts, uniforms)
  • Promotional purposes (giveaways, recruitment materials)
  • Items sold for fundraising*

Tarleton State University branded items that are sold for fundraising are subject to the school's royalty fee. Groups that want to produce items for sale should first contact the Campus Bookstore, Tarleton's official retail provider. It is impermissible for university groups to recreate items currently sold in retail for promotional purposes.

Ready to order merchandise or promotional items? Follow the steps below.

Step 1: Choose your mark.

University Logo Marks

To present a consistent and strong brand, departments are encouraged to use official Tarleton State University logos when applicable. Information about logo use can be found in our Brand Standards.

College/Department Unit Marks

All colleges and university departments have distinguishing unit marks. These marks are created by the Marketing and Communications Department by request only. Unit marks are approved on promotional items, table covers and other internally distributed items where it is important to distinguish one campus unit from another. To request a unit mark, submit your request to marketing and communications.

Merchandise Marks

Merchandise marks are approved when ordering promotional items with a small imprint area. These items include pens, lanyards, wristlets, etc. Merchandise marks are not unit specific.

Step 2: Submit your merchandise request form

All faculty, staff and students are required to submit a merchandise request form prior to contracting work with one of our internal vendors. When submitting the form, complete all applicable fields or your form will not be reviewed. All forms will be reviewed within a 48 hour period. Please allow at least a week to start on an apparel/merchandise project with a vendor to allow time to price, source and decorate items. For questions or help, contact or call (254) 968-9553.

- If a licensed vendor is not used, the university may not approve funding for the order.
- Any item to be sold for profit is subject to a 12% royalty applied by the vendor.

Step 3: Order merchandise

Once your merchandise request form has been approved, you may begin working with your preferred vendor to produce merchandise.
