USPTO issuing electronic registration certificates

In response to customer requests for trademark registration certificates in a digital format rather than as paper certificates, the USPTO began issuing electronic registration certificates on May 24, 2022. Registrations are issued electronically by the USPTO with a digital seal, which serves to authenticate the registration. The official registration certificates are uploaded to the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) system and emails are sent to trademark owners and all email addresses of record. You can view, download, and print a complete copy of your registration certificate at any time and for no charge.

Registrants are able to order printed presentation copies of their registration certificate suitable for display and framing. They are a one-page condensed copy of the issued registration printed on heavy paper. They feature a gold foil seal, identify the owners, display bibliographic data, and indicate the trademark and classes of goods or services,Note, presentation copies are not registration certificates or certified copies of the trademark registration
