Crafters License Program

The Citadel’s crafters license program is a great fit for craftspeople, small business owners and other emerging entrepreneurs who are looking to test the market before entering into a broader retail license with The Citadel through its licensing agent, Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC).

These agreements are a legal necessity when selling products with The Citadel’s trademarks, and membership into this program contains the following basic provisions:
