University Departments

Departments must use a licensed vendor to produce any merchandise or apparel with the Boise State name, trademarks or other university identifying feature. This applies for the following:

  • for the department/organization’s own use (e.g. team shirts)
  • for promotional purposes (giveaways, premiums and such like)
  • for items to be sold for fundraising*

*Departments may not make any Boise State branded items available for sale, as the University Bookstore/Bronco Shop is the exclusive retailer on campus (see University Policy #9200).  In limited circumstances, the Bookstore may grant an exemption to permit limited sales for fundraising and/or will offer the ability to sell merchandise on the department’s behalf see this link
