Ordering Giveaways

Ordering Giveaways

The university has an  agreement with the  Licensing Resource Group  (LRG) to allow authorized OU merchandise to be sold in outlets off campus. The agreement also covers the production of OU items for internal purposes (giveaways). Basically, if it has an OU logo, mark or the university name anywhere on it, it must be ordered from an approved vendor. 
 
There are more than 100 local and national vendors who are licensed to produce OU merchandise. Refer your clients to the merchandising page of the UCM website for details AND for a list of approved vendors. Clients can work directly with vendors on ordering giveaways! All our licensed vendors have access to our logos, and know how to use them appropriately. There is a back-end system they use, which sends all merchandise artwork to Debra for final approval. So we are still able to keep watch of logo use/abuse -- but in a much more efficient, streamlined manner. 
 
Encourage your clients to use an approved vendor for their giveaway needs. There are many local vendors who are very enthusiastic about the LRG agreement and look forward to working directly with departments on giveaway orders.
