Brand Licensing for Heritage and Non Profits

Why Brand Licensing?

Retail sales for Heritage and Non-Profit licensed products grew 21.5% to $1.2bn in 2017.

Brand licensing offers these companies a way to secure vital additional revenue streams through the sales of licensed merchandise, all while increasing awareness for their brand. It also offers exposure to both high street and online retailers where heritage and non-profit brands wouldn’t otherwise have a presence. It’s no surprise that more and more companies are taking part, including The National Gallery, The Van Gogh Museum, The Imperial War Museum, The V&A, RSCPA and many others.
