Community Connect (Crafter’s License) Program

What is Community Connect?

SFA understands that small local businesses as well as artists and crafters have an important place in the campus community. CLC’s Community Connect is a way to provide opportunities for these small businesses/individuals by providing an easy, cost-effective option to produce products bearing our institutional trademarks that fall outside the standard licensing program.

CLC Community Connect, also known as a crafter’s license, is an online hub that allows crafters to connect and communicate with SFA’s licensing department on license requests, artwork approvals and sales reports.

Who qualifies for the Community Connect program?

The program is open to individuals producing domestic handcrafted items featuring collegiate marks at home and selling/distributing to individual consumers through events or direct sales. This might include church, school, county, state, craft, holiday and Junior League events, as well as street festivals, gift marts or flea markets.

Is there a limit on units/sales?

No more than 500 units may be sold per year, and the total sales per year cannot exceed $2,500 per university. Licensees that will exceed these limits should apply for a CLC retail license with SFA. No sales are permitted on a wholesale basis or to a third-party retailer. Distribution is limited to direct-to-consumer sales.

How much does it cost?

During the inaugural year of this program, the annual fee is $50. Starting in 2025, the annual fee will be $100.

How do I apply?

Apply for this license by creating an account and submitting an application on the Community Connect Portal

Please note: the licensing progress can take at least three weeks or more to process a request.
