Can I register the word mark now and the logo later?

Yes, this is possible. You can register your wordmark and your logo trademark separately, meaning they do not have to be registered at the same time. Using this strategy, you will achieve the best possible protection - 100% protection for both the wordmark and the logo.

If you wish to protect your brand name/product name, you can file your wordmark application now. And, at a later date, you can file another application specifically intended to protect the logo.

The two applications will be assessed independently by an examining attorney. If one of them fails, this does not mean the second one will fail as well.
