A Word about Trademark Specimens
The trademark specimen required for your trademark registration process consists in a real-world example showing the use of your trademark on your products or in the presentation of your services.
A trademark specimen involves more than just a picture of your logo. For registering trademarks for products classes, specimens refer to instruction manuals, containers or packaging materials, labels or tags displaying your trademark.
It is important to make the difference between the display of your trademark on your products and the display on advertising materials. For products, examples as brochures, catalogs, business stationery or business cards are not considered acceptable specimens.
On the other hand, when registering trademarks for services, examples of materials such as websites, flyers or advertisements are acceptable as specimens, while stationery materials are still not acceptable. If you want to use your business cards as specimen they must include the services offered along with the trademark.
