A crafter is defined as individual producing domestic handcrafted items in the home with collegiate marks, and selling/distributing to individual consumers via events or direct sales. This might include events organized by church, school, county, state, craft, holiday, Junior League, street festivals, gift marts, or flea markets.
This license allows a Crafter to sell to individual consumers only. Sales of items on a wholesale basis to a third party are not permitted. All items must be hand-made. No commercially manufactured items are allowed.
If anticipated sales will exceed 500 units or sales revenue of more than $2,500 in one year, please refer to www.clc.com for more information on the Local or Standard Licenses available through the University’s licensing agent, The Collegiate Licensing Company.
An Officially Licensed Collegiate Craft label will be required to be affixed to all products.
The annual licensing fee for the Crafter’s License varies – see Program Fees.
A sample of each item to be offered for sale bearing the University’s trademarks and logos must be submitted for review before the License is granted. Samples should be sent to: Ken Corbett, Trademark and Licensing Director, 1600 Hampton Street, Suite 606, Columbia, SC 29208 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the samples are reviewed and approved, a Crafter’s License Agreement will be sent to the Crafter for signature. This License Agreement should be returned with a check or money order made payable to “University of South Carolina” and sent to me at:
