UT Tyler Logos and Registered Word Marks
The official logos and the name of The University of Texas at Tyler are trademarked and each use
be approved to ensure compliance with UT System and university policies. They are referred to as the registered marks.
Approving agencies are UT Trademark Licensing (all merchandise/products) and the Office of Marketing and Communications (all printing/Web).
The UT Tyler logo may only appear in orange or white. The official Pantone color for the orange is PMS 159. Do not use a tint or use a percentage of the PMS 159. Any other color is not allowed.
The Patriot athletic logo may appear in three colors (PMS 159, PMS 281 and white) or white. No other colors are permissible.
Logos should not be altered in any way such as adding drop shadows, color changes, etc.
Merchandise and products – anything that is made for the university and bears the name and/or logo – should be ordered through licensed vendors who are authorized to use the registered marks. Vendors who are not licensed (through Strategic Marketing Affiliates) may be authorized to use the registered marks one time before becoming licensed. If they do not comply with the request to become licensed, they will not be authorized again – i.e., that vendor can no longer be used to produce merchandise bearing the name and/or logos of UT Tyler.
An internal request form and a proof of the product design must be submitted for every order bearing the UT Tyler registered marks. The sections highlighted must be completed to ensure accurate processing. Please allow 3 – 7 days for the form and design proof to be reviewed.
