Campus Departments

Campus departments (including those in locations other than the main Atlanta campus) are required to use an official Georgia Tech licensee to produce any merchandise or apparel with the Georgia Tech name and/or trademarks, and to get approval from Licensing and Trademarks.

This includes merchandise used within the department (staff shirts, pens, etc.), given as gifts, or sold.

Departments are allowed to use the official Institute logo or department logos in conjunction with the spirit marks. The spirit mark must appear in a separate print area from the official Institute logo and/or the department logo. 

Departments are not approved to use the Athletic wordmark. The Athletic wordmark is reserved for the Athletic Association and NCAA sports.

Keep in mind...

  • Campus units may use the Institute primary logo, extended logo, or unit combination logo in communications and for branded items purchased from an official licensee.
  • Do not use the Interlocking GT alone for academic or organizational usage. The Bookstore offers generic Georgia Tech branded apparel, notebooks, pens, and many other licensed promotional products for purchase.
  • Do not use the outlined version of the interlocking GT, which remains exclusive to Athletics.
  • Trademarks (logos and spirit marks) are not to be used in conjunction with tobacco, recreational drugs, gambling products, political symbols, and/or religious symbols. For additional restricted items, see the full list.
  • Use in conjunction with the United States flag, or the flag of the State of Georgia, is allowable.
  • Trademarks (logos and spirit marks) are not to be used in conjunction with other brands, names, or trademarks in a way that might appear as an endorsement by the Institute.
  • Do not simulate logos in type, skew or modify the elements, recolor, or fill with any pattern or texture.
  • Designs using the trademarks must be approved prior to printing or manufacturing.
  • All items and materials bearing the trademarks must be printed, produced, and manufactured by an official licensee.
  • A registered trademark symbol, either ® or TM, is to be used next to every trademarked logo. The symbol should appear near the bottom right of the trademarked logo.
