The line is long for people that want one of these. Anyone know what the rules are as far as using a school logo like this as long as I’m not mass producing them?

I don’t know the rules, but that’s the best logo available. It looks fantastic.

If you get really good at it they’ll shut you down :-) they usually ignore the few.

Nice work

Whoop!! Nice work Ag!

You can use the logo for personal use without any repercussion. They only get involved if you’re using the logo for profit on a larger scale. Selling a handful is fine.

Poor taste sir…poor taste. Those will never sell here. Especially not that logo on this weekend. Then again I live a mile from the MSU campus in Starkville and you guys are coming here for the game this weekend! ;) Just kidding, good craftsmanship sir. All your lines are crisp and straight. Good job sir.

I think as long as you cut up Longhorn meat, you will be fine….

Yea.. Be careful with the logo. I contacted some people at UF about logos and they said one or two is acceptable but if you’re selling them to strangers or even friends of friends, you need to get certified to sell. I think college logos are pretty cheap to get the stickers and certification you need. They just want their $$$.....

Awesome idea btw. I’m gonna look into making a board with a logo in it for my pops!

Nice job on the inlay. Yes, be careful with copyrighted logos. I have a friend who got into a lawsuit over a logo. However…....it reminded my of a whole bunch of Aggie jokes. Used to live in LA. I’m sure that Aggies tell jokes about LSU.

I made one of these a couple years ago for Mizzou. Thankfully, it is just “Collegiate font” so it’s not considered a Logo. Although anyone in my part of the country knows exactly what it means…

Maku- The wood whisperer did a really good video on inlay. You could learn much more from that than having me try and explain anything!

And then there is my way, a CNC!

Since you asked, selling even one is a violation of their Trademark. They will have Trademarks on their logo, all colleges with sporting teams will. I actually worked these types of violations both in criminal courts as well as civillian courts. So one thing I can say is selling just a few will likely never land you in criminal court. No prosecuter would take a case like that. But selling just one could land you in civil court. There is no exception in the law for just selling a few. However, it is probably safe to say that just selling a few will probably not attract the attention of anybody and even if it did you would like just get a cease and desist letter versus a civil suit.
