Your Frequently Asked Questions, Answered Here
We know all this licensing talk gets confusing – especially when you’re just trying to purchase a gift for a Kappa! But it is important that you shop for Kappa products only with licensed vendors. We answer “why” here.
Why do we ask you shop only with licensed vendors?
Kappa Kappa Gamma’s legacy is preserved through our trademarks, which we exclusively own. In order to protect the heritage of Kappa’s marks and maintain ownership of them, we must have a program in place to monitor the use of our trademarks and the vendors who request permission to utilize them.
What are Kappa’s trademarks?
Kappa’s trademarks include the Greek letters (KKГ), the Coat-of-Arms, the badge, the logos and the name Kappa Kappa Gamma, including KKG.
How will I know if they are a licensed vendor?
When shopping for Kappa Kappa Gamma products and merchandise check the full list of licensed Kappa vendors at www.greeklicensing.com to ensure the vendor is licensed.
Another indicator that a vendor is licensed is to look for this logo:
What if I come across an unlicensed vendor?
Unfortunately, there are unlicensed vendors out there illegally using Kappa’s marks. This can easily happen on sites like Etsy. If you come across an unlicensed vendor, please report them to our representative Melissa Jean-Baptiste. She can be reached at Melissa@affinity-consultants.com.
Did you have a bad experience with a licensed vendor?
Please report any negative experiences (i.e. not returning phone calls or emails, poor customer service, and/or quality issues.) with licensed vendors to our representative, Melissa Jean-Baptiste. She can be reached at Melissa@affinity-consultants.com.
