Promotional Items

Recently the University of Houston partnered with Promoversity, an online merchandise store, to allow students, alumni, faculty and others to create and order custom promotional items branded with the university logo. Official UH Engineering logos are also loaded into Promoversity, allowing you to customize a promotional item with the college logo. The university’s brand review process is built in to the Promoversity tool, so if you create an item using Promoversity, you do not have to go through the additional step of submitting the piece to UH Branding (branding [at] uh [dot] edu).

https://www.costore.com/houstonpromos/welcome.asp

Does Promoversity not have what you need? Custom promo items may be ordered from both UH Printing and FastSigns.

Please note, if not using Promoversity, once your vendor sends you a finalized proof of the artwork, your proof will need to be submitted to UH Branding (branding [at] uh [dot] edu) for official approval. Branding only accepts final artwork proofs for review. Approval typically takes approximately 24 – 48 hours.
