A: A trademark application can cost $250-$350 depending on the type of application you are submitted. When submitting a trademark application there can be additional fees if you file an "intent-to-use" verses "In-use" application. A trademark attorney is recommend to assist you through the process. Trademark attorneys have a wide range of flat fees offerings for trademark filings.

A: The cost to register a trademark depends on a few factors, but here is a breakdown:

Filing Fee:

- The basic filing fee for a trademark application is $350 per class of goods/services. Most trademarks register in one class.

Attorney Fees (recommended):

- Having an attorney prepare and file the application typically costs between $500-$2,000. While not legally required, hiring a trademark attorney greatly increases chances of approval.

Additional Registrations:

- Once the trademark application is approved by USPTO (usually 6-12 months), you'll need to pay another $125 filing fee per class to actually register it.

Renewal Fees:

- Registered trademarks must be renewed every 10 years. The renewal fee is $400 per class.

So in total, budget approximately:

- Filing Only: $350-700

- With Attorney: $850-2300+

- With Renewals: ~$1000+ every 10 years

Having the right legal protections for your logo and brand is important, so investing in professional help is wise.
