Copying and Trademarks

I know that it's (potentially, with exceptions for fair use and so on) illegal to copy material to which someone else owns a copyright. Is there any law, regulation, or rule about photocopying text that you have written, if in the text you have used a trademarked word or phrase?

(Specific question, a couple of months old, but it just came back to the forefront of my brain: one of my chapter members created a flyer for an event, and was told she couldn't copy it at Kinko's because the flyer included the text "The International Association of Administrative Professionals®".)
