  • Promo/Apparel Items

    Promotional items can be anything from a T-shirt or pen to any other giveaway, whether or not it includes UAB marks. All UAB departments, registered student organizations (as defined by Student Affairs), club sports teams, and residence hall organizations using the names, marks, logos, and/or symbols of UAB for any merchandise, apparel, and promotional items, whether for fund-raising or publicity, are required to purchase from licensed vendors.

    Step 1: Select an Approved Vendor

    Any product or item that uses a UAB mark must be produced by a licensed vendor. All items must be sourced from the University Purchasing-approved suppliers listed here. Vendors MUST meet both the licensing and University Purchasing approvals.
