In case of a trademark that appears to be abandoned for not using the mark in commerce, the owner may revive it by the 'petition to revive' to be filed within two months from the date of abandonment. The owner also needs to prove that the mark is now used in commerce.

However, if two months have passed after abandonment, a fresh application for registration can be filed before the USPTO.

I'm a graphic designer and my client would like to trademark a slogan. She wants the entire slogan to be protected. However, it seems that the slogan has two parts to it - a catch phrase and a tagline. Would she have to trademark both the catch phrase and the tagline seperately? For example:

Short tagline sentence beneath catch phrase (TM at the end)

or is it sufficient just to put the trademark at the end of tagline? Example:
