- We recommend choosing a wordmark as your first mark. It gives the broadest scope of protection and wordmarks are rarely changed, unlike logos.
- A logo as a first mark is recommended if the mark you are trying to register is considered weak (descriptive, for example). A combined mark is a solid choice in many countries.
- But you must use your mark as it was registered at least sometimes. Therefore, a wordmark is still preferred as it remains the best value for money.
