Phi Kappa Theta uses ONLY Authorized Vendors for its Merchandise Sales. This is necessary to protect the intellectual property of the Fraternity (such as the Fraternity Name, Badge design, Crest, and other Phi Kappa Theta-specific symbols). Allowing any company to use our trademarks without permission means that the Fraternity has no control over how our intellectual property is used. Also, unlicensed vendors are profiting from the Fraternity without paying royalties and with no guarantee of quality. Licensed Vendors care enough to make sure our trademarks are used in an accurate and positive manner.
If you currently use a local vendor who is unlicensed, refer them to firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can become Officially Licensed. This is a benefit for them, as they can become licensed by roughly 72 National Greek Organizations, and can then receive business from local chapters of all of those organizations.
Eli Snider, FEA’s Director of Operations, explains the importance of using Greek Licensed vendors – as opposed to non-licensed vendors – in order to protect our beloved signs and symbols.
