A while back my father-in-law looked into getting my logo trademarked for me. The lawyers at his firm were going to do it free of lawyering fees, but the paperwork itself would cost $350. Or so we were told.
I just went to the Florida Department of State page and saw that the filing fees for trademarking is about $87 per class. I will file just for my wearables, since they are the only thing with the logo actually on it and I have to provide 3 samples of how the logo is used.
I applied online last nite to become an LLC. Step by step things are falling into place.
