You're building a gorgeous brand. Protect it from copycats and competitors with a trademark.

 
 
 

$1225+ Investment

A trademark is the exclusive right to use a brand. If you own your trademark, you are the only one who can use your brand (yay!) But if someone else grabs your trademark first, they'll own the exclusive right to use your name nationally. That's a big problem! So if you're building a brand, you need to trademark it asap.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are Trademarks?

A trademark means you are the only company who can use your brand to sell similar products and services.

Why do I need a Trademark?

Starbucks invests millions into their branding, right? Their trademark prevents other companies from copying and making money off their brand. These companies haven't invested time or money into the Starbucks brand so they shouldn't be allowed to profit off it.

But, without a trademark, that's exactly what will happen. Your competitors will copy your brand and profit off your hard work. And there's not much you can do about it.

A trademark makes the time + money you spent on branding worth it because you are the only one who can profit from your brand.

How much do Trademarks cost?

A trademark is an investment in your brand. It's costly, but not as expensive as an entire company rebrand, which can happen if another company files your trademark first. Here's how our fees work:

Trademark Search - $200

We start with a trademark search to ensure your company name is available and likely to be approved.

Trademark Application - $800 *Payment Plan Available

This includes a personalized application strategy to increase your likelihood of approval, creating and filing your application, and responding to all Office Actions.

Trademark Office Application Fee - $225

The fee charged by the Trademark Office to process your application.

How does the Trademark process work?

The Trademark Search

We start with a trademark search to ensure your name is available and likely to be approved. It's important to get this step right because the Trademark Office will deny your application if it's too similar to an existing brand and they don't issue refunds.

The Application

The trademark application is notoriously difficult and we don't advise clients to go it alone. We can create and file your application so it's more likely to be approved.

Review

In 3 months, your application is reviewed by the Trademark Office to ensure it meets the legal requirements.

Office Action

The majority of applications (84%) receive an Office Action. You'll need to prove that your application meets the legal requirements for a trademark. We include responding to Office Actions in our package rate.

Publication

If your application meets the legal requirements, it will be published online for 30 days. If there are no conflicts, your trademark will be approved!

Do you offer a Payment Plan?

We do! Our mission is to help women entrepreneurs grow their companies and we know that's hard to do when your cash flow is tied up. So we developed a no-interest trademark payment plan. This way your brand is protected + you have the cash flow to grow! Payments start at $200-225 per month.
