Unfortunately, for the best protection, you would need to register each separate piece or variant. A copyright is very specific as to the item that is copyrighted, relative to a design. As such, I think it would be in your best interest to copyright each piece.
That said, the US Copyright Office has made copyrighting an item very easy. You can file each item on-line and the filing fee per item is only about $35. You first register with the US Copyright Office online and then you run with it from there. The application process walks you through each step and it take less than 30 minutes per item. The Office will notify you if there are any issues and allow you to correct them. They will then normally issue the copyright within 3 to 6 months from the date of filing.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Please also rate my answer positively (Three or More Stars) so I can receive credit for my response - otherwise I will receive no credit.
Best wishes going forward!
Just checking in this morning to see if you had any other questions or comments. I want you to be as comfortable as possible as you move forward on this issue. Thanks
