Trademark Electronic Application System

File Online

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is pleased to present TEAS - the Trademark Electronic Application System. TEAS allows you to fill out a form, check it for completeness, and then submit the form directly to the USPTO over the internet, making an official filing on-line.

NOTE: All Filers should check Current Server Status and Planned Outages before beginning the application process.

New Filers are encouraged to review Where Do I Start information before beginning the application process. To preview all pages of the initial Trademark/Servicemark application, to determine what information is needed before starting an actual application, click here.    New
WARNING: For information about solicitations you may receive from companies NOT associated with the USPTO, click here.     New

WARNING: All data you submit through TEAS will become public record and will be viewable in the USPTO's on-line databases, including your phone number, email address, and street address, where provided. Please avoid submitting personal identifying information that is NOT required for a filing, such as a social security number or driver's license number. Also, to maintain confidentiality of banking or credit card information, only enter payment information in the secure portion of the site after validating your form; do not enter a credit card number or other payment information anywhere within the front part of a TEAS form.
