Evidence of Use Is Required
The trademark office requires actual proof that the trademark is being used to sell goods or services listed in the application. If your trademark was for goods, the types of evidence used to meet this requirement include, for example, labels and hang tags. If your trademark was for services, the government will accept other types of proof of use, such as websites and brochures.
More detailed information regarding appropriate evidence of use in commerce is available at the USPTO website.
