It's Official! { Trademark } -- Arizona Photographer

{ Beba Photography is Officially Trademarked! }

I am so excited about today! I received a very special certificate in the mail.....

.....the state Trademark for Beba Photography!

Why is a Trademark so important you may ask?

What's the big deal?

Having a Trademark means that you have registered your business name so that no one in your state can use that name for their own business. It's commonly referred to as a "DBA" or "Doing Business As."
It's not required to be Trademarked in Arizona, but I opted to so that I could own the name, "Beba Photography" and not have to change it if someone else decided to name their company by that name.

If you are in Arizona and are looking to own your own business and would like to have your business name Trademarked, you can visit the Secretary of the State's website at:

If you're interested in applying for a Trademark on a federal (nationwide) level, you can visit:

For me, getting a Trademark was pretty easy. I just had to register, pay and wait for it to come in the mail. Thankfully, no one else had already taken the name Beba Photography.

How many of you out there are business owners yourself?
Would you care to share your experience of getting a Trademark with others who are just getting started as entrepreneurs?
