hi guys. i read some of the posts but i couldnt find the answer I was looking for. I want to start my own t-shirt line. I will be using one of the apparel people to buy the shirts, tanks etc from. im going to wait until the long beach show on jan 23-25 to get alot of vendors. now my question is that I have a name for my brand and it will appear on all my clothing but I also want to do rhinestone iron ons of my brand name. why would i have to trademark this and say if i live in Chicago and I do a corp for my name brand. someone else in any of the united states still can use my name. what do I do to make my name mine. like step by step I need answers. also if i give one of the online companys shirts to do for me, how do i know they will not make more and sell them and make profit on them. i am a graphic designer so im trying to do my own designs but i dont know where to go from there, help me please.
