Drawing of your mark

Your application must include a clear “drawing” or depiction of the trademark you want to register. We also call a “drawing” a “mark drawing” or a “representation of the mark.” Federal trademark law requires that you provide a drawing with your application for us to assign the application a filing date and move it toward registration.
