All products bearing Boise State University’s brand must be purchased from a business licensed by the University.
- For Boise State entities, if your organization is using University funds to purchase University-branded products, select one of our approved internal licensees.
- For third parties, the licensed vendor must seek permission from the University with regard to the proposed use – whether personal or for commercial purposes.
Why do I have to order from a licensed vendor?
Licensed vendors are legally allowed to produce items with Boise State University trademarks for internal and external constituents. They are in good standing with the University and meet labor codes with the Fair Labor Association (FLA).
Additionally, all licensed vendors have gone through an approval process ensuring:
- High quality
- Correct branding
- Artwork approval
- Product liability insurance
- Ethical production
Licensed vendors are held to the highest standards.
In the rare instance that an order with a licensed vendor has been misprinted, is poor quality, etc., the order can be made right or the licensee may risk consequences such as losing their license.
