The Red Knights MC name and logo are trademarked. ANY chapter that wishes to produce RKMC items, whether they are for sale or strictly for your own chapter use, MUST obtain a Trademark License Agreement from the International prior to production of the item. Items that are currently listed in the catalog will be grandfathered at this time but a Trademark License Agreement still must be obtained.
The Chapter Business Trademark license is for use of our name/logo and will include use on a Chapter web site, business cards, letterhead, checks, address labels, newsletters, flyers (to promote your chapter only), and chapter application. Every Chapter who uses any of the listed items must apply for this license. The Chapter Business Trademark license application may only be signed by the Chapter President or the Chapter Quartermaster (per SOG 4:03).
Use the Trademark License Application, under question 3 (What are you planning to produce) write “Chapter Business Trademark License.”
