Merchandise and Apparel guidelines

All merchandise and apparel used to represent Ohio State, regardless of content or funds used, requires approval from the following two groups:

  • Brand Stewardship Team
  • Office of Trademark and Licensing

To obtain this approval, email the appropriate form (below) and your design to


Student organizations:

Proof of both approvals (saved email or signed form) should then be included with your Workday Requisition.

Please reserve two full weeks for the approval process—this should allow both teams time to review and also allow time for possible revisions.

To clarify, this process applies to all merchandise and apparel that is used to represent Ohio State or an Ohio State college/unit/group, regardless of funding (internal or external). Even if "Ohio State" is not written on the item, it must go through the approval process (this excludes student organizations).

While the COE Communications department is not able to approve merchandise and apparel, they are still available to answer branding or design questions. For assistance, please contact Matt Schutte, Director of Communications, or Katrina Norris, Senior Graphic Designer.
