Trademark Class 16: Paper, Books and Stationery

A comprehensive guide to Class 16 of the Trademark Filing Classification. Trademarks must be applied or registered under classes and each class represents a distinct class of goods or services. In this post, we comprehensively cover the goods which fall under Class 16 of trademark classification.

Trademark Class 16

Trademark Class 16 pertains to paper, cardboard and goods made from these materials, not included in other classes; printed matter; bookbinding material; photographs; stationery; adhesives for stationery or household purposes; artists’ materials; paint brushes; typewriters and office requisites (except furniture); instructional and teaching material (except apparatus); plastic materials for packaging (not included in other classes); printers’ type; printing blocks.

The following goods are also classified under Class 16:
