It will be carefully reviewed for completeness and accuracy by the team in charge and questions will be asked, if necessary, to have the clarifications needed for the preparation of the official application. Also, at the end of this form, you will find a text box where you can ask particular questions, or write what you think we need to know in regard to your trademark. So, let’s get started!

Let us know if you are already using the mark in the trade of your products or services.

If you answered "YES" to previous question, can you tell us when you started using the trademark for your business, products or services? The location or geographical extent whithin which this event (INITIAL use of the mark to trade the products or services) happened does not matter ("anywhere"). It does not matter if it happened in the USA or in another country, in a small town of the US or of another coutry, in the whole US, in one state only or multiple states. What matter is when this event happened. If you don't have a precise date don't worry, just the month and the year are, or even just the year is sufficient.
If you have already started using of your trademark, and in case your trademark identifies products, did the products cross U.S. state lines bearing the mark on them, their packaging, labels, tags or similar? This could have happened for reason of sales, transportation, importation of the goods in the U.S. from abroad or exportation of the goods from within the U.S. to a foreign country. For the case your trademark identifies services, did you offer and render the service to consumers located in another U.S. state (through a proprietary website, or sites like Amazon or Ebay etc.) or did you offer and render services that affects interstate commerce (restaurants, gas stations, etc.)? IF YOU DID, FROM WHAT DATE? Month and year are, or even just the year is sufficient). If the events above described did not happen, leave blank.

For example, for products, you could provide a picture of a packaging, tag, label, the product itself bearing the mark, or a screenshot of a website checkout page where the trademark is shown, the product is described or pictured, and there is a price and a “buy” button. For services, for example, a screenshot of a website or social account page where the trademark is shown and the services offered could be acceptable.
