Ordering apparel from a vendor can be done through their website or contacting them directly. Review the Working with Vendors page before selecting a vendor.

Vendors will have the correct logos. If you need them, go to the Logos page.

Embroidery

Vendors use a variety of embroidery machines. Provide them with a jpeg of the logo you want to use. If they ask for a .emb file, contact Beckys@uky.edu to send them an eps file to convert. Always ask for a sample before ordering an item. It's better to take the time to inspect the quality of the embroidery BEFORE ordering a large quantity of apparel.

Note: When you order the interlocking UK Logo, if the embroidery is on a dark color (UK Blue), the vendor has to choose a thread color to match the shirt.

Color Choices

If you are not sure of the color selections, always ask for a sample of the materials. Royal Blue is a good color to use for "UK Blue". Acceptable colors for items are the University colors i.e. blue, white, black, gray (neutral colors), tan, 4-H green
