"We just want troop tee-shirts for everyone to wear."

Great! The bottom line is if a troop wants to make a T-shirt, but won't be selling it, they can!  The name "Girl Scouts", "GSUSA" and/or any service marks (like the Trefoil) can be used on merchandise, like tee shirts.  If you are looking to create a troop or service unit t-shirt, please review the guidelines here.


If you have any questions concerning becoming a licensed GSUSA vendor, or have Girl Scout licensing or trademark questions please contact Kelly Chatman, GSUSA Trademark Manager & Licensing Agent
