License Agreement for creative products and services by Mascot Junction, Inc. (dba PBIS Teaching Tools, and dba Thompson Advertising).
Mascot Junction provides two distinct types of licenses with its trademarked and copyrighted products. A Hard Product License comes with all printed products, such as posters, banners, signs and t-shirts. A Soft Product License comes with all electronically downloaded products such as clip art, gotcha rewards, photo recognition templates, activity sheets, award certificates, etc.
Hard Product License:
The Hard Product License applies to products such as posters, banners, signs and t-shirts printed by Mascot Junction, and/or its authorized vendors/business partners. The Hard Products License forbids the printing, or duplication, of the aforementioned products. This includes all printing, or duplication, from hard copies or electronic copies (pdf proofs, screen captures, etc.).
Soft Product License:
Mascot Junction provides a non-exclusive Soft Product License with all its Electronic Downloadable Products. The Soft Product License is limited to one school per license. Either a school, or printer, may purchase the Soft Product License, but use of the art is limited to one school. If a printer wants to use the art for multiple schools, a Soft Product License must be purchased for each school the art is used for.
What is permitted:
- The Soft Products License allows the use of Electronic Downloadable Product (artwork) by a single school, or government facility (anyone, or any computer, within a single building). A Soft Products License limits the use of Mascot Junction images for anything other than official school functions. The artwork CAN be used for any official school team, but teams not officially associated with a licensed school have to purchase the artwork/license separately.
- Use on t-shirts, apparel and school-related products for sale, or give-away
- Use as part of the licensed school’s logo or team graphics
- Use on print and electronic communications related to the licensed school
- Licensed users CAN duplicate the artwork and use it on any computer(s) owned by the licensed school/facility. Everyone employed with the school can have the art on their computer, and use it for school-related projects and activities.
- Giving the art to a printer/vendor for the sole use of producing items exclusively for the licensed school.
- The artwork CAN be altered and used to produce and sell school-related or facility-related items including: shirts, uniforms, flyers, brochures, premiums, flags, banners, murals, signs, logos, posters and similar items.
What is NOT permitted:
- Giving away, selling or sharing the artwork with another school. Each school/facility needs to purchase its own Soft Product License.
- For a print vendor to use Mascot Junction licensed art to produce projects/products for more than one school. Each school must have its own Soft Product License.
- The art may NOT be offered as clipart, part of a clipart set, as art for sale, or as any design software template for sale or giveaway. Only authorized resellers are permitted to do this, and ONLY with a written, and signed contract from Mascot Junction.
Teams are considered independent entities. If they are officially associated with a school, they CAN use artwork licensed by that school indefinitely. If the team is part of a non-school league, the artwork must be purchased separately. All individual images are sold with the same restrictions found in a Soft Product License. Basically – the artwork can only be used by one team.

Cancellation Policy: Mascot Junction provides quotes with no obligation to buy, so feel free to explore your options. We do not print any products until you have reviewed, revised and provided written approval of the designs. We do not invest our time in custom designing your project until we receive a Purchase Order, or prepayment, in the form of a charge card or check. You can cancel, or pause your order, PRIOR to issuing a Purchase Order or making a pre-payment, without any type of payment. Once your school issues a Purchase Order, or makes pre-payment, we begin processing your order immediately, and a $200 cancellation fee, plus the “custom design fees” reflected on the Mascot Junction’s quote that was used to generate your Purchase Order, will be required to be paid. If you choose to pick up where you left off, and move forward with the order again, you will get full credit for payments made, for a 12 month period which starts at the cancellation date. If six-months after you issue a Purchase Order, you fail to give Mascot Junction adequate instructions, final approval, or fail to respond to repeated e-mails and phone calls, we will consider the order cancelled and you will be required to pay the cancellation fee and custom design fees. Once you provide final written (signed) approval of the design proofs, you may not cancel the order. Issuance of a Purchase Order means your school agrees to the Terms and Conditions set forth by Mascot Junction.
