UA Logo Approval
The University of Alabama's Trademark Licensing Office and Procurement Services have joined together to help University Departments and recognized student organizations find and purchase items with imprinted or embroidered University logos or insignias from licensed vendors.
Logos and insignia include any artwork that references the University in any way. This is done to help protect the brand, image and reputation of The University of Alabama. Here is some important information that you need to be aware of prior to obtaining estimates and placing any orders:
- The Purchasing Department currently has contracts in place for various items (i.e. t-shirts, lanyards, uniforms); however, the artwork still needs to be reviewed and approved before a purchase is made. The list of Approved Contracts can be found here.
- If the item you want to purchase is not currently on contract and the total cost of your quote is above the bid limit of $15,000, a bid may be required. Please contact the Purchasing Department before filling out the Approval Form.
- If the item you want to purchase is not on the Approved Contracts list and does not require a bid, you may proceed with a licensed vendor from this list. All artwork must still be approved through use of the K2 Form.
- For all orders, the approval form must be completed. All artwork and quotes must be attached for review and approval.
If any changes need to be made to the artwork or proposed vendor, the form will be returned to you with an explanation and sent back to the department. Trademark Licensing and University Relations will work with the department on the changes.
Once the artwork has been approved by the Trademark Licensing Department, Purchasing will review the items, cost, purpose and vendor. If the form is disapproved for any reason, it will be returned to the department and Purchasing will assist in making the needed changes. The department may proceed with either the requisition or Pcard purchase after approval from Purchasing has been granted.
