Apparel

Chapter Apparel

Movement Exchange welcomes chapters to design merchandise and shirts bearing their chapter logo–within the regulations of Movement Exchange Branding Guidelines. Chapters are encouraged to create innovative, creative designs for their apparel, barring the design does not dilute or hurt the Movement Exchange brand.

Chapters should consult their university’s Apparel and Merchandise Standards before creating anything bearing that university’s logo, name, or identity.

University chapters are responsible for all apparel orders and coordination with vendors. They may choose what products to print on (t-shirts, tanks, etc.), but the items must be in one of the required colors (see below).

Because Movement Exchange is an open-source organization, we encourage chapters to share their designs with other chapters who may not have access to designers. If you would like to add your merchandise/apparel design to the this page for download, please email our Marketing Coordinator at hannah@movementexchanges.org.

Color Requirements

Designs must only use Movement Exchange brand colors and fonts (refer to pages 13 and 14 in the Branding Guidelines Handbook).

The clothing item you choose to print logos and designs on must be one of these colors:

  • Black
  • White
  • Grey

If your chapter would like to print on another colored apparel item, contact hannah@movementexchanges.org.

Designs

Below are examples of chapter t-shirt designs.

The front-of-shirt design is your chapter logo.

If your chapter already has a logo, download it here.

The back-of-shirt design is downloadable below.
