Branded-merchandise guidelines and purpose
Branded merchandise and apparel can reflect pride in the University and serve a function as well as promote the brand to an outside audience; therefore, it is important to be mindful when designing and distributing these items. The Office of Strategy, Marketing and Communications (SMC) is here to help guide the design of branded merchandise to make sure these items meet your needs and follow Metropolitan State University of Denver’s brand-identity guidelines.
- All branded merchandise using the MSU Denver name, logos and mascot image must be approved by SMC to maintain the integrity of our brand and trademarks.
- All branded merchandise intended for resale must go through the University licensing system.
- Branded promotional items must be purchased from a preferred vendor (apparel, signage, banners, table drapes, awards and plaques are excepted from this requirement).
Steps for creating branded merchandise at MSU Denver:
If you need more information on the processes of ordering materials or common questions, please contact SMC at email@example.com.
Contact SMC if you are unaware of the guidelines around logo usage, approved vendors and licensing policies.
Contact an approved vendor for purchasing items. These vendors offer clothing in addition to a wide variety of other promotional merchandise. You are encouraged to compare pricing before placing your order, and follow normal procurement procedures. These vendors work directly with SMC on the review-and-approval process for the products they offer.
Follow up on your order timeline, delivery and invoices and report any quality problems to your vendor.
Branded items such as pens, mugs, bags, flash drives, etc., must be purchased from either the Tivoli Station or the other preferred vendors with University purchasing agreements in place.
The Tivoli Station, formerly the Auraria Bookstore, is the official merchandiser for MSU Denver apparel and merchandise. It offers custom ordering and product searches to meet departmental needs in addition to the logoed clothing and other merchandise available for purchase in the store.

The bookstore works directly with Strategy, Marketing and Communications on the review-and-approval process for the products offered. Also, large-volume purchases may qualify for additional discounts.* The Tivoli Station offers a 15% discount* on departmental purchases. Increased discounts are also available to departments that are willing to partner in making volume purchases.
