When do I file the specimen?
This information is needed when you apply to register your trademark. If your application is based on “use in commerce,” you must submit one specimen for each class of goods/services when you file the application.
If your application is based on “intent to use,” you must submit one specimen for each class of goods/services when you file the “allegation of use.” The allegation of use may be filed prior to publication (Amendment to Allege Use) or after publication (Statement of Use). If filing electronically, you must attach an image of your specimen in .jpg or .pdf format.
