Promotional Merchandise (mugs, pens, totes, t-shirts, etc.):

All promotional merchandise must be purchased through a licensed Penn State vendor and must follow Penn State visual identity standards. This pertains to all merchandise whether it is intended for sale or as a give-away item. Merchandise includes totes, pens, mugs, hats, clothing, bags, portfolios, key chains, luggage tags, etc. On specialty items, the licensed vendor will insert the registered trademark symbol or you may contact the Multimedia Specialist for access to the Penn State logo with Registration Mark.

The following link will allow you to search for a licensed vendor by category type:  Under Step 1., Pick a product: 'Gifts & Novelties - Miscellaneous - Gifts & Novelties - Misc.' and under Step 2., Pick the school: 'Pennsylvania State University.'

All designs for promotional merchandise produced by the units in Educational Equity before they are sent to a University approved vendor, must be reviewed by the MarCom Rep and the Multimedia Specialist to ensure appropriate guidelines are followed per University policy.

Merchandising items must include either the Penn State logo (Tier One) with Registration Mark, or the Penn State logo lock-up with Registration Mark and the inclusion of the Educational Equity text (Tier Two).
