How do I obtain a copy of a trademark?

Copies of documents in an application file, including, the application itself, Office action and copies of the registration certificate, can be ordered by telephone, fax, and over the Internet. Copies of trademark registrations, shipped via the U.S. Postal Service, may be purchased for $3 each.

Copies of other paperwork within the application can also be ordered and the fee for such documents will depend on the number of pages copied.
