The tl;dr official answer is:

"All uses of the ZS name or logo must be expressly approved by ZSHQ. The official logo may not be modified in any way."

If you'd like to make an item for personal use, email your request to chapters@zombiehunters.org

Quote:
The name ZOMBIE SQUAD and the ZS logo are both registered trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and are thus protected by both U.S. and international trademark law. The process of developing the trademarks, maintaining the reputation of the organization associated with them, and protecting them from potential dilution is costly in terms of both time and money. Since so much of the protection afforded by law is dependent upon a trademark owner's past actions in regards to potential dilution, Zombie Squad has made protecting its trademarks a priority in all operations.

A. No person or chapter may use the name Zombie Squad or the ZS logo without the express consent of the Zombie Squad Board of Directors. Persons wishing to create personal goods bearing the ZS name or logo may request a single use license from the Board of Directors. Requests are evaluated on a case by case basis. This includes all promotional materials for events.

B. Chapters may be granted a restricted license to create items using either trademark. Requests for this license should be forwarded to the ZS Chapter Liaison.

C. When the Zombie Squad name or ZS logo is used, they may not be incorporated into another independent logo. The trademarks must be used in the original form as registered with the USPTO.

D. No use of the Zombie Squad name or ZS logo will be approved for items that will be sold by third parties, individuals, or businesses not authorized by the Zombie Squad Board of Directors.

E. While ZS chapters may be allowed to create personalized chapter logos for unofficial use, any and all official communication on the part of Zombie Squad, any material used in for promoting official events, and any representation of the chapter or ZS may only use the trademarks as they are registered with the USPTO. This includes, but is not limited to, fliers, press releases, letters, posters, and other promotional materials.

By following these guidelines, members and chapters help ensure that Zombie Squad does not inadvertently waive the right to defend the integrity of our trademarks and prevent unwanted uses. Protecting these trademarks allows Zombie Squad to grow into an internationally recognized brand and make our logo instantly recognizable to the general public.
