How to Order ACC Branded Merchandise

ACC divisions, departments, offices, and programs that wish to order T-shirts, giveaway items, etc., must use approved logos and make their purchase through a licensed vendor. Allow at least 8 weeks for production and delivery of merchandise.

Instructions

Follow these steps to custom-order merchandise for your ACC division, department, office, or program. You’ll need to work with your administrative assistant to complete purchasing requirements.

1. Items and budget approval

  • Select an item from an ACC-approved/licensed vendor listed below.
  • Contact the vendor to obtain a price quote on the item, including proposed costs for setup and shipping.
  • Request your budget authority's approval for the quote.

2. Submit PR and Merchandise/ Trademark Approval Request

  • Create a purchasing requisition (PR) with your quote in Colleague. Make note of the PR number but DO NOT SUBMIT the PR at this time.
  • Submit your Trademark Use Authorization Request. You'll need the vendor name, item name and description, and PR number for the request.
  • The college requires use of an official ACC logo on all merchandise. Select ACC logo only, your ACC department/program/area of study, ACC office logo, or an official logo with text added.
  • Follow up with the vendor to confirm they have the needed logo/artwork! If they don’t have it, direct them to request it at  trademarks@austincc.edu.
    Custom setup will be needed for retractable banners, table drapes and runners. Your vendor will need to send print specifications and a template to trademarks@austincc.edu to get this artwork.

3. Vendor creates proofs for OCM approval

  • The vendor will email merchandise proofs for your and OCM's review/approval. You will be included on all communications.
  • It is your responsibility to inspect the proofs and verify this is the item you ordered.
  • OCM will reply to the vendor's email with revisions (if required) and/or with a final approval. This email confirmation will serve as the required supplemental documentation for your PR.
  • Once you have OCM's approval of the proofs, you are ready to submit your PR.

4. PR & PO confirmation

  • Submit your PR, and work with the Purchase to Pay Department to issue a purchase order (PO).
  • The vendor will not begin production until they receive your PO.
  • Continue working directly with the vendor to complete your order:
    • Make sure your vendor receives the PO and gets your order scheduled for delivery.
    • Notify the ACC mailroom about the delivery date so the order can be confirmed as received and the vendor will be paid.
    • You can check on your PO and payment status in Colleague.

 

Approved Vendors

Use these vendors to select your merchandise. In order to start the approval process, you’ll need to obtain a price quote directly from them.

Unapproved Vendors: If you wish to order merchandise from an unapproved/unlicensed vendor, they must first complete the vendor licensing process before they can legally use ACC’s trademarked identities. For information on becoming a licensed vendor, contact CLC/ Learfield Licensing Partners.
