Approval Process

All clothing and merchandise produced for the college and its entities must follow the approval process steps:

  1. Create a mockup of your proposed design. If you do not have the tools to create a mockup on your own, you can work with an approved supplier to have a mockup created.

  2. Email your mockup to the CFAES Brand Approval Team:

Once you receive an approval from BAT, download and fill out the appropriate "Department Request for Logo Use" form:

Request for trademark use: Ohio State Alumni Clubs and Societies 

Request for trademark use: Student Organizations

Request for trademark use: University Departments

Send the completed form and your approved art to the Office of Trademark and Licensing and to the university's Brand Stewardship Team at brandcenter@osu.eduAllow at least two weeks for all approvals. Submit all approvals as an attachment to a Workday Requisition. Specific ordering instructions for contracted suppliers can be found in their supplier profile in the contract book. Any deviation from the above steps may result in a delay in the approval of your design.
