Can I personalize my trademarked Tshirts at my LLC ? for example , several friends wanted their name(s) put on the front of their "Sassy Assd" Tshirt (my trademark logo) under the words "Sassy Assd" girl and then the Words "Sassy Assd" bigger on the back. I already did it for these 4 ladies and they bought them, I just want to know if that is breaking any law with my trademark ?
