The MIT Technology Licensing Office (TLO) and MIT Communications Initiatives (CI) work together to review and approve designs for MIT-branded merchandise. Licensees are required to provide a PDF of proposed designs for new items and for items being reordered to firstname.lastname@example.org. MIT departments will need to submit designs to email@example.com, and MIT student groups will need to submit designs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to MIT’s trademark license agreement, MIT has 14 days to respond to your design submission. We will, however, make our best effort to respond within 3 to 5 business days.
Upon design approval, we may request a production sample using the actual manufacturing process and materials to review the production quality.
