The Department of the Navy is proud to offer a program that benefits crafters and hobbyists. A crafter is defined as an individual producing domestic handcrafted items in the home with Navy trademarks and selling to individual consumers via events or direct sales. Sale sites include street festivals, craft fairs, farmers markets, and online craft marketplaces like Etsy.
To qualify for the Crafter License Program, the following criteria needs to be met:
Upon execution of a license and receipt of the licensing fee, an Officially Licensed Navy Crafter certificate will be provided for display by the crafter. Crafter’s are not required to purchase holograms, but may do so if they desire.
The application should be completed and submitted together with an image or sample of the proposed product by uploading on the page of the electronic application. You can check on the status of your application by emailing us at email@example.com or by calling (703) 696-4002 or (703) 696-6676.
Once the samples have been reviewed and approved, a Crafter’s License Agreement will be emailed to the crafter for review and signature. Once the agreement is finalized, an invoice with instructions on how to process the payments will be sent.
