Greek Organizations

Many Greek Organizations have chosen to have their organization represented by an agency that protects the use of their respective trademarks. If your organization is a member of Affinity Marketing for Greek Trademark Licensing, you must use a manufacturer that is licensed for both Florida State University and your organization. If you are unsure whether or not your organization is a member of Affinity Marketing please contact your organization’s National Office.

Licensees who are licensed with both Affinity Marketing & Florida State.

Procedures for Obtaining Art & Product Approvals

  • FSU has over 400 licensees nationwide with many in-state or local licensees.
  • Take your artwork to a licensed manufacturer or ask the licensee to create the artwork for you.
  • Provide the vendor the following information (to be submitted to Office of Trademark Licensing in artwork approval):
    • Customer name/organization and contact information
    • Use of Product (internal consumption, resale, fundraising, etc.)
    • Quantity
    • Is this item being purchased with University funds?
    • If a reorder, date original order was placed
  • The licensee will submit the artwork to FSU’s Licensing Office for approval and remit royalties to IMG College Licensing on FSU’s behalf.

For assistance in locating a licensee or any other questions contact FSU’s Licensing Office at 850-644-8690 or email Garrett O’Connor at goconnor2@admin.fsu.edu.

Policies Concerning the Approval of FSU Related Artwork

  • To protect Florida State University’s trademarks and promote a consistent visual identity, FSU marks may vary in size, but cannot otherwise be altered, tampered with, modified, incorporated into other marks, or overprinted with other words or design elements.
  • Use of a current student athlete's name or likeness on commercial merchandise is a violation of NCAA rules and may result in the student athlete being declared ineligible.
  • Use of intellectual property owned by a third party must be approved by that entity in writing and submitted to the licensed manufacturer along with the artwork. For example, if you wish to use artwork, slogans, or trademarks created by someone not associated with your organization, a written release allowing for such use is required before Florida State will grant design approval. This type of approval process often takes weeks, so allow enough time for such approval to be obtained.
