How much does it cost to trademark a brand in the US?
The official fee for your trademark application will depend on whether you use the TEAS Standard or TEAS Plus option.
If your list of products and services complies with the most recent edition of the USPTO's Trademark ID Manual, you can select the TEAS Plus filing option, which costs $250 per class.
If you want to submit an application with a non-standard list of products or services, you can only choose the TEAS Standard filing option, which costs $350 per class. You will be charged an extra $100 to register a non-standard list with the TEAS Plus option after review by the UPSTO expert, giving you the same $350 as using TEAS Standard from the beginning.
Pocket IP service fee is $300 per trademark.
What documents are required for trademark registration in the USA?
The following material must be submitted in order to register a trademark in the US:
Application for a trademark: A completed "Trademark Electronic Application System" (TEAS) form for trademark applications must be submitted. The goods or services connected to the trademark must be described in clear, explicit terms.
Specimen of Use: If your trademark has already been used commercially, you must provide a specimen that demonstrates how the mark has been used for the products or services. The evidence of use may be submitted along with the application or during the trademark registration procedure at the USPTO's request.
Filing Fee: Pay the necessary filing fee, which differs based on the application type and the number of classes of goods or services. Only when filing fees have been paid is a trademark application deemed to have been submitted.
Priority Claim (if applicable): If you want to assert your right to priority based on a previously submitted trademark application in another country, you will need to submit supporting documents.
The registration procedure usually takes 9 - 12 months.
