Branded Merchandise

Sometimes known as promo gifts, giveaways or "swag," promotional products are customized UB merchandise that are a great way to celebrate school spirit and promote your department.

Before ordering promotional items or merchandise, you'll need to work with approved vendors and complete the UB trademarks request form to get approval from  UB Trademarks and Licensing to purchase items with your department lockup.


Pop-up banners help you welcome current and prospective students, professionals and other attendees to any of your departmental or unit events. When submitting a creative services request, you will need to provide the vendor information, dimensions, and, if applicable, any specific text and images you would like to include.

Environmental Design

Integrating the brand throughout the department's physical spaces will help add visual interest to a space and create a cohesive look that makes a memorable impression on students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Please review these guidelines before starting your environmental project – whether that’s redesigning a space or creating new graphics.
