Promotional Vendors

Below is a list of promotional vendors that are licensed by the University to use our trademarks in the manufacture of emblematic products. The companies listed below are members of the Fair Labor Association, certify that their factory sources are in compliance with Columbia's Code of Conduct, and have agreed to specific guidelines regarding monitoring.

This list has been compiled by referrals made by individual schools and departments based on their preferences. Each school and department should use these ATHLETIC EQUIPMENT & APPAREL SUPPLIERS: Ahead, LLC; Boathouse Sports; BSN Sports, Canterbury USA; Ping Golf; Sneakers Plus (Chris Gacos Assoc.) companies based on their own assessment of the type of product, price, and quality they require. The companies below focus on "giveaway" products versus products sold through regular retail stores, thereby providing less expensive options. Additional licensed vendors are available but may be cost-prohibitive.

If a vendor is not licensed, they have not been granted the rights to use our trademarks and are not permitted to manufacture or provide products bearing the Columbia name or logos.

Venues and Event Vendors

Event Contracts require Central Purchasing’s review and approval; this process is in place to ensure that the University’s interests are protected and to mitigate potential liability within such agreements.
