    Pre-filing search: USD285                                                                
    Request for registration: USD900
    Final registration/Certificate: USD530
    TOTAL: USD1,715

    Example 2: One mark two classes
    If you want to have your trademark "ABC" registered in Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headgear) and Class 26 (lace and embroidery, ribbons and braid; buttons, hooks and eyes, pins and needles; artificial flowers), that is, one mark two classes, the total fees for trademark pre-filing search, registration request and certificate are:

    Pre-filing search: 285 + 285 = USD570

    TOTAL: USD2,900

    Example 3: Two marks one class
    If you want to have your trademarks "ABC" and "DEF" registered in Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headgear), that is, two marks one class, the total fees for trademark pre-filing searches, registration requests and certificates are:
