Our trademark clients seem to show some confusion on the specimen requirement for trademark registration. When filing for trademark registration, the USPTO requires a specimen (an example) of your trademark in use. What qualifies as an adequate specimen is determined by what your business sells.

If your business sells goods, a proper specimen can be a photo taken of the label, stamp, or stencil clearly showing your trademark on the product. Advertising materials (ads, banners, flyers) are generally not accepteptable to the USPTO.

If your business offers services, there are no tangible products that have labels. Photos of advertising materials for services you offer are acceptable specimens, as are letterheads, business cards, and website screenshots.

ArmillaryIP's online trademark application form makes the registration painless. After you provide basic information on your business and the goods / services offered, you can upload photos to meet the USPTO's specimen requirement. Our price for trademark registration and our one day service are great values - only $125, plus the gov't fee. Start here.
