A trademark is a proprietary word or slogan that is used to differentiate one brand name from another. There are two symbols that are associated with trademarks. The letters "TM" in a superscript font can be used with unregistered trademarks that you claim as yours; the letter "R" enclosed in a circle indicates a trademark that has been registered with the United States Patent Office.
Open the document in which you would like to insert a trademark symbol.
Hold down the "Alt" button and press "0153" on your keyboard's number pad. This will create the trademark symbol (™).
Create the registration symbol by pressing and holding the "Alt" button and typing "0174" on your keypad. This combination will display the registration symbol (®).
Save your document.
Tips & Warnings
- Using the trademark symbol does not legally protect your trademark. For full legal protection, it must be registered with the United States Patent Office.
- Make sure your "Num Lock" is engaged.
- The numbers must be entered using the 10-key keypad; the number row across the top of the keyboard won't work. If you're using a laptop, you may also have to hold the function key when pressing the numbers.
