How To Apostille
Trademarks and Patents
We only need three things from you to start the trademark apostille services or patent apostille services process.
First, mail us or drop off your original federal trademark and patents documents at our office. The trademark and patent documents that you submit to us cannot be a photocopy or a notarized copy and you can’t fax or email us a copy of your trademark and patent documents to apostille or authenticate.
The United States Department of State will only accept and issue federal apostille certificates and authentication certificates on original trademark and patents documents that are physically presented to them not copies.
Second email, mail, or drop off at our office a prepaid FedEx or UPS return shipping envelope/label (we do not accept air waybills) that you can create and purchase online at FedEx.com or UPS.com without needing to have an existing account set up with them. You can also visit any UPS Store or FedEx Office location to purchase a prepaid shipping label as well.
Do not use the United States Postal Service (USPS) because they lose things constantly
(potentially your trademark and patent documents) and are completely unreliable and slow.
The reason we require a prepaid return shipping envelope/label is so we can mail your documents back to you or to wherever and whomever in the world that you want your documents shipped to.
The U.S State Department (USDOS) office is currently taking an estimated 8-11 weeks to process and issue certificates once your documents are filed with them. It was taking 12-13 weeks time (we kid you not) up until May 2021 for the U.S State Department to process and issue federal apostilles and federal authentication certificates on documents once they were submitted to their office in Washington, D.C.
Please don’t fall for other online companies that haven’t updated their websites yet. The USDOS processing turnaround time is now the exact same for every single company in the world no matter what company you choose to hire since walk-in service was discontinued in March 2020 because of COVID.
The U.S Department of States does not give us or anyone updates of any kind so we cannot give you any type of order status updates once you place your order with us (welcome to the completely broken federal government system since COVID).
Only on the day the State Department finally issues a federal apostille certificate or authentication certificate on your FBI background check report will they notify us and then we will notify you by email.
Also, be aware that at any time the USDOS could revert back to longer timeframes (12-13 weeks) without notice and during your ongoing document filing process.
This means we can tell you by phone, email, or you can read on this website that the USDOS is currently taking an estimated XYZ time to issue federal apostille and authentication certificates but during the filing process the turnaround time for your documents can be extended out to a much longer time frame.
Click on the below links for easy step-by-step screenshot directions on how to create a prepaid FedEx or UPS shipping label online in only a few minutes.
If it’s an international shipment (USA to another foreign country) please also provide us with a invoice (see the two links below to download custom prefilled out for you templates) that shipping companies (FedEx, UPS) will normally require you to include whenever you ship documents internationally to certain countries. If you or someone on your behalf will be returning to our office the following business day to pick up your apostilled or authenticated documents you of course won’t need to provide us with a shipping label.
On the prepaid return shipping label
that you provide us you can list the
from senders mailing address as:
Your City, State, Zip Code
Third, you will need to download, sign, and email, mail, or drop off at our office our rush United States Department of State (USDOS) federal apostille service order form that can be instantly downloaded by clicking on the federal apostille order form button below.
If you will be dropping your documents off at our Austin, Texas office location in person you must bring this completed federal apostille order form in with you along with any documents that you want us to rush apostille or authenticate for you or for your company.
When you arrive at our office walk up to our front lobby receptionist desk area and tell them that you have some documents to dropoff for Apostille Texas. Detailed directions and pictures of our office and office building are on our contact us page as well for you to view.
Please also understand your documents will not and cannot be apostilled or authenticated onsite at our office so this isn’t walk-in service.
The only legal and government entity in the U.S.A that can issue federal apostille and authentication certificates is the U.S Department of State office in Washington D.C which is where we will rush file your federal trademarks and patents at on your behalf.
Lastly, we do not have these federal apostille order forms available at our front desk receptionist area.
So if you choose to drop your documents off at our office please make sure to print out and bring this U.S. Department of State apostille order form in with you or alternatively you can email us the completed State Department apostille order form ahead of time.
