CLC's application guide can be found at www.clc.com under Licensing Info, then Application Process. This guide covers all of the information needed and fees required to obtain a license to produce BYU merchandise. The licensing process typically takes two to three months, depending on the product and the applicant's eagerness to complete the application process. The process includes the following steps:

Step 1:


Submit a CLC license application.

Step 2:


Send samples or preliminary designs of products bearing BYU indicia to CLC, purchase liability insurance for your product, provide product specifications, and buy the appropriate CLC hologram labels to affix to your merchandise. (Manufacturers may also be required to submit an Authorized Manufacturer's Agreement.)

Step 3:


Submit other required forms and fees as explained in the application guide.

Step 4:


Await results of the University review for licensing approval.
