Approval Process

  1. You may work with any UT System-approved vendor for UT Southwestern to create shirt art, assuming the above rules are followed. The vendor will provide a digital proof of the shirt for review.
  2. Digital proofs may be sent to the UTSW Brand Marketing Team [marketingteam@utsouthwestern.edu] for compliance review. The Brand Team will review a mockup only to approve or deny UTSW logo usage. UTSW Marketing is not responsible for approving unique art created by student organizations.
  3. Once logo usage on the mockup is deemed compliant by UTSW Marketing, you may ask the vendor to proceed with producing the shirts.
  4. UTSW-approved vendors must submit the art to the UT System for overall brand approval. All approved vendors have instructions on how to do this. Once the UT System approves, the vendor can print the whole order.
  5. UTSW Marketing strongly encourages you to have a pre-production sample created and shipped for your review before printing the whole order. This gives you an opportunity to check the quality of the product
