What do you need to trademark your logo design?
1-Font. Most graphic design companies will use several different fonts when designing a logo. The fonts come with a license for personal or commercial use. Ask your designer for a copy of the license when they are sending the final files. We suggest purchasing all files used in your logo just to be safe.
2-Raw Art Files. Once the logo is complete the designer should provide different files types for your use. You must make sure that you have the raw art files that are not flattened. Some of the files types you should be looking to obtain are:
These files should be all you need for trademarking, screen printing, print media, web design & much more.
3- Colors. When creating a logo we ask our clients which colors they want to incorporate in the design. The response is normal, they provide the names of the colors as asked. But 🤓 each color comes with a code. There are several different shades of each color. The CMYK and RGB color code chart has several numbers that correspond with different colors. Ask your designer to mark out the exact color code used in your logo. You may need this information when trademarking.
