Starting Tuesday, June 7, 2022, the US Patent and Trademark Office will begin issuing only electronic trademark registration certificates, accessible through the website https://tsdr.uspto.gov/.  Trademark owners will have the option to request paper “presentation” copies of the registration certificates for a fee of $25.  This change represents a cost-savings for the USPTO and will have minimal impact.  Trademark owners already can print a copy of their registration certificate at any time.  Most countries had ceased issuing paper trademark certificates for many years, including Canada.  In the US, the only instance a presentation copy still might be important is as a trial exhibit in a trademark infringement litigation.
