Exciting Changes at TradeMark Express

There have been a number of changes at TradeMark Express lately that I wanted to take this opportunity to detail them here for our blog readers.

First, we dropped our fees $50 on August 14th from $600 to $550. This is our first price reduction in 15 years! I want to reassure our clients & potential clients that a price drop does not mean a drop in services by any means. Our clients are getting the same great service they've been getting since 1992 – comprehensive research, analysis, referral to a trademark attorney and preparation & submission of their Federal trademark application. We were able to justify and absorb that price drop by streamlining some of our internal processes so who better to pass that on to than our clients!

Second, we implemented a payment plan program. TradeMark Express® understands the many expenses new business owners face; we also know how necessary comprehensive research and analysis is prior to filing. To help our clients, we have three different payment options:

$550 Our Best Deal!
$285 per month for two months = $570
$195 per month for three months = $585

Third, before TradeMark Express® conducts the comprehensive research, we will do a FREE check for the exact name at the USPTO. If there is a Conflict, we will call to inform you so you may provide us with your 2nd choice name.

That's the latest on what's going on with TradeMark Express. If you have any questions about anything outlined here, please feel free to contact me via email.

Beware of Official-y Correspondence

Once you get that trademark filed be aware that your information is of public record, which means, unfortunately, some will mine that resource & some of those folks will send you solicitations. 
These solicitations often look very official, and "may use names that resemble the USPTO name, including, for example, one or more of the terms "United States," “U.S.,” "Trademark," "Patent," "Registration," "Office," or "Agency."  
Some will even have documents that resemble actual government documents rather than what you'd expect a company to send and this is often done by "emphasizing official government data like the USPTO application serial number, the registration number, the International Class(es), filing dates, and other information that is publicly available from USPTO records."
Most of these are asking you for money. That's your major warning flag.
"All official correspondence will be from the …
