Approved Vendors for MIT Merchandising

We work with MIT Communications Initiatives to review and approve designs for MIT-branded merchandise that can be ordered from an approved vendor.

Design Submission and Approval

In order to produce MIT-branded merchandise, all designs must be approved. Our merchandise team assists with:

  • Review of proposed designs for MIT-branded merchandise
  • Permission to use an MIT mark
  • Requests for high-resolution files of the MIT logo and seal
  • Licensing information
  • Questions about the appropriate placement of the ® or ™ symbols
  • Questions about these design guidelines
  • Assistance with logo file formats

Note: For new licensees, we may request a production sample using the actual manufacturing process and materials to review the production quality upon design approval.

Who to Contact

To submit your design or ask questions to the appropriate email address:

We make our best effort to respond to design submissions within 3 to 5 business days. According to MIT’s trademark license agreement, MIT has 14 days to respond to your design submission.

MIT's Approved Vendors

These vendors have a relationship with the TLO and understand the MIT style guidelines, allowing you to get branded merchandise in a timely manner.
