Students who wish to sell their Boise State crafts can now apply for a discounted crafter’s license through the Office of Trademark and Licensing.
A crafter’s license is available to in-state individuals who hand make items at home and do not intend to sell these items wholesale to retail stores, but instead sell them at craft fairs, farmers markets, online through etsy.com and such. The initial fee for a crafter’s license is $100 and the student discount is $50.
Licensed student crafters will be required to pay fees at the end of the year, based on sales in accordance with the crafter program. In addition, the Boise State Bookstore has offered to print specific designs using their in-store printer, so that crafters can offer really unique pieces.
