Here are some resources that I use, check, and maintain in order to help keep track of the gigantic number of registered trademarks out there!

LOVELY LARGE LINK LIST:
My gigantic spreadsheet of active registered trademarks in class 025: This class covers most clothing, but this spreadsheet specifically targets t-shirts, tops, and other shirt styles.)
My somewhat smaller spreadsheet of active registered trademarks in class 016: This class covers many paper products; this spreadsheet is aimed mostly at greeting cards, stickers, and similar goods.)
TESS: The USPTO’s own search engine. The best source for information, but it’s kind of ugly and hard to use. That’s why I wrote…
Searching TESS with a little more finesse: A blog post that covers how to do more in-depth targeted searches in the USPTO’s TESS search system.
TMhunt: A cleaner and easier search system that limits results to class 025. Data is sometimes a couple of weeks behind TESS.
TMOG (Trademark Official Gazette): The USPTO’s weekly list of all changes, updates, cancellations, registrations, and more. I use highly filtered lists at the TMOG to find the new registrations and cancellations for Trademark Tuesday.
ABOUT TRADEMARK TUESDAY:
Back in January 2019, I started up the gigantic spreadsheet (linked above), not only because it was hard to find a lot of these registered trademarks that impact crafters and makers, but also because I just love to make spreadsheets. It grew and grew as I found more marks, and other designers let me know about ones they’d found.
In mid-2020, I figured out how to filter the USPTO’s weekly gazette so that I could see each week’s new registrations in class 025. I started compiling the most interesting ones, and posting them to a designer group on Facebook. But not everyone could see them there, so in 2021, I expanded the weekly trademark posts to this website! Hopefully you’ll find the Trademark Tuesday posts (and the other various stuff I write about) helpful in your crafting, design, or creative business!
