A: Hi! The best way to do this would be to meet with an attorney. You'll have to show use of the mark in commerce, which can be difficult with a startup.

A: Hi, you will want to speak with an attorney who can help you with your trademark. An attorney can run a search with the USPTO to make sure no one else has registered your mark for a related good or service, and they can assist you with showing use in commerce or filing an ITU application.

A: You fill out a form on USPTO website. But in order to minimize the chance of a denial, you should hire an attorney to conduct a research and assess your mark before applying.
