Purchasing Products Using Trademarks

Any products bearing Northland (academic or athletic) trademarks, images, indica or other references to Northland or Pioneers must be purchased from a licensed vendor. By using any of these logos, designs or marks, you are agreeing to do so in accordance with Northland Policies & Procedures and Minnesota State Board Policy & Procedure 5.22.1 (Part 4, Subpart E. Unauthorized Representations or Trademark Use).

Before you can order your product, you must first receive approval by completing and submitting a purchasing request form below.

Send the signed purchasing request form to the Marketing Communications department at brand@northlandcollege.edu

Before deciding on a design, it’s important to check the brand standard manuals and product design guide on the proper use of the College’s logos and trademarks. Carefully review the rules outlined to save time for both you and the vendor during the licensing review and design approval process.

Double-check the unauthorized usage section to ensure your product does not fall into one of the categories listed.

When you have a design idea for a Northland branded product, visit the approved licensed vendor’s page for a complete list of up-to-date licensees. Using a Northland-authorized licensed vendor is required when ordering College branded items.

Work with the licensed vendor on the design for your order.

The licensee submits the artwork proof design to Northland Marketing Communications and Brand Management for final design review and approval. If needed, Northland Marketing Communications and Brand Management communicates to the licensed vendor any changes that need to be made to the design prior to the order being filled.
