Hello,

 

I need a 1/2 layer cake that could feed about 30 people.  I would like it to have the Block C and the Gamecock in the University of South Carolina colors.  Does anyone in or near Columbia, South Carolina have a suggestion for me?

 

Thank you!

Good luck.  It is *illegle* to sell anything with that image on it as it is copyrighted.  Getting permission to do so costs *MAJOR* $$ and most times is denied.

AThis is one if those case where that is not true.

I am located in Charleston. USC grants one time use if thier copyrighted images. I get granted permission several times a year. You can see an example of the gamecock in my gallery.

Clemson also grants permission. They are more liberal in that you don't even have to ask. Thier website provides specific guidelines for use.

Am I correct that you are looking for a baker in the Columbia area? If so, I can post to a SC Facebook group which covers the entire state. I'm sure someone there is in Columbia.

I stand corrected.  I hadn't heard that some colleges allow use of their logos.

Delicious,

I'm curious about Clemson's permission - I emailed them earlier this year to inquire about permission to use their logos on cakes (didn't actually have an order - just wanted to check in advance) and they sent me a Crafter's License Agreement, Crafter's Program Fees (fees are based on sales), and a Crafter Licensee Royalty Reporting Form.  I was wondering if they had told you something different.  Thanks!

AWow. Yes. I'll have to go do some research. About a year ago, there was a use agreement on thier website. Possible it has changed.
