Virginia Tech offers three opportunities for companies and individuals to become licensed with the university. You must hold a Virginia Tech license with the Collegiate Licensing Company and abide by the University's Code of Conduct in order to produce merchandise bearing a university trademark. Explore the three different types below to find the license that best aligns with your goals.
Allows a company to produce a product bearing the trademarks of collegiate institutions for university departments and related entities for internal consumption only. Cannot provide product at retail or direct to consumer.
Allows a company to produce product bearing the trademarks of collegiate institutions within the same state as the business' location for university departments and related entities in addition to retail distribution.
The purpose of the crafter program is to provide a license to vendors that will only be selling in the craft market (i.e. craft fairs and shows, Etsy, and Facebook Marketplace). These vendors are typically creating items in their own homes and not selling to a large market.
With the Crafter Agreement there are clearly defined sales channels and royalties are not charged on sales. Crafter Licensees are limited to $2500 in sales or 500 units.
The crafter program is currently not accepting new applications and will reopen July 1, 2022.
