FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Patent drawings are how inventors communicate the parts of their product, the steps in a process or the structure of a molecule to the public. Patent drawings are often the most important tool with which inventors teach the final drawings in your patent that need to comply with the guidelines set by the U.S. Patent Office. Those rules make it difficult to know if you should make your own drawings or have a professional draftsman do them for you. In case if you do decide to have a professional make your patent drawings it will always help if you start out drafting your own. When you apply for a patent, get the drawings right and you have taken one of the biggest steps towards getting the patent right. Get your professional patent drawings from thepatentdrawing.com.

Although there is no fixed number of drawings required by the US. Patent Office. You will still need as many drawings as necessary to show the various parts of your invention, and if applicable, all of its stages of operation. The number of drawings also depends upon the feature of the claimed invention.

There are at least two broad types of patents. The most common type is a utility patent, which seeks to protect a process or the way the invention functions or operates. The next type of is a design patent, which seeks to protect the appearance of the invention.

This is the question which you ask yourself, "What am I trying to protect? a unique design and look OR the function of an invention?" In certain circumstances, you may be trying to protect the function of an invention as well as its unique look, in which you could apply for both types of patents. A utility patent protects an invention's function or process - what the invention does and how it does it. A design patent protects the look of an item - and only the look, not any functions. If your invention does not need a design patent, it likely needs a utility patent and if you are uncertain of what type of patent to apply for, contact us and our customer services representative will be happy to help you.

A provisional application will be advantageous when certain details of the invention need to be further developed or refined. By filing a provisional sooner, an earlier filing date is secured for whatever invention details currently exist. Any new subject matter can be added to a non-provisional application that will claim priority back to the provisional application. Provisional patent application is effective to stop the clock relative to so-called statutory bars and immediately upon filing a provisional patent application you can say you have a patent pending. Provisional patent applications, done properly, are a great way to take a first step toward a utility patent.Also the Provisional patent application helps protect the invention from being copied during the 12-month period before a formal patent application (Non-Provisional) is filed.
