Trade and Service Marks Protect Brand Names, Slogans, and Logos.Carson Patents®
What are Trade and Service Marks
Carson Patents offers searching, registration, and renewal services for trade and service marks. Trade and service marks protect brand names, slogans, and logos used on goods and services. You can use your mark before you register it. In fact, having it already used in commerce can help make the registration application process faster. We follow our 4 step process to register marks. Using your mark before registration is okay and can lead to registration unless it infringes on existing marks.
If you want to be sure your name, slogan, and/or logo can be registered, we can help with a business name search before you start to use it. This search is our first step in registration. Read more about marks and successfully register your mark with our 4 steps.
To protect your registered trade and service marks with ease, consider hiring a monitoring service or an attorney to monitor and maintain your registered marks.
4 Steps to Trademark a Logo or Business Name
Carson Patents has a 4 step process we follow to apply and get trade and service marks registered. You can follow our steps to get your own mark registered. Check out our 4 steps.
The four steps to registration are:  business name search,  write application,  submit application, and  respond to examiner. We start with the business search. If the mark is not already taken, then we write and file an application to get it registered. Prosecution is responding to letters from the USPTO to address any issues raised in the application. Also, we are available to help if you started on your own and now need help.
Always conduct a business name search prior to investing in the use of a name, slogan, or logo. Even accidental use of the registered brand property of another is trademark infringement.
Costs to Trademark a Business Name or Logo
The cost to register a logo, brand, or business name depends on the kind of mark and the number of classes. You can file to register and protect both the words of a name as well as a stylized logo version with special formatting. Filing an application for your logo, brand, or business name will cost between $250 and $750 per class plus attorney fees. Carson Patentsʼ typical attorney fees are between $500 – $2500 to conduct the business name search and to prepare, file, and monitor your application at the USPTO through the receipt of the review of the examining attorney. Read more about the costs to register.
While any combination of business names, logos, slogans, and audio clips can be registered, each requires its own application and filing fee.
