The Crafter Licensing Program is a great program that allows for independent artisans to participate in the University of Utah's licensing program by legally producing product adorned with the UofU's marks and names. Through this program, crafters enter into a simple contract with the UofU that grants permissions to individuals to produce and sell licensed product displaying the University of Utah indicia. It is a great way for crafters to legally benefit from the popularity of Utah's flagship institution.
