To take the guesswork of out which logo to use, we’ve simplified the process and now have one merchandise-only logo for CFAES and one for Extension. These are the only marks to be used on any merchandise or apparel being produced.

We do not typically work directly with promotional vendors, but we regularly see proofs created by American Solutions for Business, G&G Outfitters, Golden Star Promotions, Proforma, and The Branding Society. This is not an endorsement of or recommendation for these vendors; it's just to say that they seem to be familiar with our various branding requirements. Also, American Solutions for Business (Direct) has options that allow for the creation of single or small quantities of on-demand apparel branded to the college. This includes outerwear, polo shirts, t-shirts, and woven shirts. Please talk to your department or unit fiscal representative to make sure you follow all purchasing policies if you're interested in buying clothing or giveaways.
