It is common industry practice to charge customers the standard $325 filing fee, and then turn around and file the application at the reduced rate without returning any overpayment. That’s not how Artisan IP does business.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
This week, Artisan IP became the first and only major online service provider to offer its clients a reduced trademark filing fee of $275 per class. This is a $50 reduction from the normal fee of $325 per class, and can save customers up to $150 instantly. These savings are in addition to the lowest processing fees in the industry.
Other online providers do not offer these savings to their clients. In fact, it is common industry practice to charge customers the standard $325 filing fee, and then turn around and file the application at the reduced rate without returning any overpayment. This results in increased profits of 75-200% for the provider, but a significantly increased cost to the customer. That’s not how Artisan IP does business.
Artisan IP integrated the discounted rate benefit elegantly into its existing online system. The user is provided with a simple, intuitive, and seamless experience that can be completed in under ten minutes. Artisan IP then handles the remaining processing and ensures that all applications get filed accurately, quickly, and effectively. Most applications are filed within 36 hours of receipt.
