Eclipse Logo With Trademark

The “Crossroads of America” eclipse logo is trademarked to SIU Carbondale. Organizations are welcome to use it to promote the eclipse and related events. Please observe the following guidelines to ensure appropriate, legal use of the logo.

To Use The Logo On Merchandise

Permission to use the logo on merchandise (such as t-shirts) sold to generate revenue can be secured. As with all licensed merchandise, a vendor fee may be charged and a portion of the revenue will be returned to the university to help cover eclipse planning costs.

To Use The Logo to Promote The Eclipse

All businesses and organizations are welcome and encouraged to use the logo to promote the eclipse in the region. There is no fee as long as it is not used on merchandise that is sold, but permission is required.
