Shiny Foil Trademark

Shiny Foil Trademark
Originally uploaded by Jeff Carlson

At the beginning of the year, I applied for a trademark on a logo I designed (which is the best-selling design at my Never Enough Coffee store). It involved a fair bit of time and paperwork (and some money, of course), along with a little back-and-forth from a very helpful trademark attorney at the US Patent and Trademark Office.

I didn’t expect to receive anything more than a perfunctory letter, but today I received an official Certificate of Registration printed on good paper and with a shiny foil USPTO stamp. (Yeah, I’ve been out of grade school for quite a long time and I still think shiny foil stickers are cool.)

    One more thing, The Itunes widget doesn’t work properly, you can’t copy and paste.
