Patent Your Product

step1

A patent is the vehicle that allows an inventor to collect royalties on their inventions. Without patent protection, it wouldn’t be worthwhile for companies to invest in your invention as they would not be able to prevent their competitors from immediately copying it. This is why we believe patent protection is critical, especially for independent inventors. In order to file a patent the Inventor Process team will create a written description and illustrations on your invention. Once approved by you, the description and illustrations will be provided to a registered patent attorney/agent to prepare and file your patent application.

Written Description:

The first step in invention protection is documentation. Our technical writers will craft a thorough written description of your invention in clear and definite terms. It will highlight the major function, unique properties, benefits, variations, mechanical description and usage of your invention. The written description along with your product illustrations will be instrumental to your patent attorney/agent in drafting your patent application.

What to Expect:

“Very detailed description of my product, an absolute great job!” – Karen K.

  • Invention review and product design consultation
  • An easy-to-read yet thorough invention explanation
  • Clearly defines the invention and how to utilize it
  • Consists of 3 to 5 pages of written description
  • Client review and feedback with personal consultant

Invention Illustrations:

Pictures are worth a thousand words. The Inventor Process team of 3-D artists will create multiple high-quality illustrations of your innovation. While these illustrations are conceptual, they’re descriptive and visually appealing. They will clearly highlight the design, major features, and unique aspects of your invention. Once approved, these illustrations will be provided to your patent attorney/agent for preparation of your patent application. Full-color versions of your illustrations will also be used in your marketing materials.

What to Expect:

“The illustrations looked like photos. Amazing!”
– George S.

  • Invention review and product design consultation
  • Three-dimensional imaging of your invention
  • Clearly highlights the invention and design features
  • Consists of 4 to 6 high-quality invention illustrations
  • Client review and feedback with personal consultant

Patent Filing:

History is filled with people who had a great idea and never patented it. Just to watch someone else do so and make all the money. Don’t let that happen to you. A patent protects your idea and prevents others from making and selling it as their own. A registered patent attorney/agent will utilize the written description and illustrations to prepare and file a patent on your invention. Your patent will provide you with a competitive advantage or a monopoly on your product. The sooner your patent is filed the better.

What to Expect:

  • A Provisional Patent will be filed with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
  • A Provisional Patent provides immediate “patent pending status.”
  • It protects your invention for 12 months while you market it to companies.
  • Within 12 months of filing a non-provisional patent application must be filed to maintain the original patent pending date.
  • Our network of patent attorneys and agents can assist you with filing a non-provisional application when needed.
  • The Patent & Trademark Office filing fee for a provisional patent is included in the Direct Submission Program™.
