Sourcing the patents

We spend countless hours searching the United States Patent and Trade Offices (USPTO) database. We look for patents with exceptional artwork and drawings. We also look for innovative and unusual concepts  as well as cultural significance.

Turning the documents to artwork

The patent files today are copies of original documents that can be well over a century old and need attention.

We restore the original documents,  maintaining the original drawing as much as possible.

After restoring the drawings we format them and prepare them on different backgrounds.

Printing process

We print exclusively on Canon IPF professional photo printers using Lucia cold press 12 color system. 

The paper we use is a thick mat  (300 GSM) photo paper. The ink as well as the paper are archival so if kept out of direct sunlight there will be no fading for generations.

 All prints are full bleed unless otherwise requested.

Custom and standard

Print Sizes

Our preset print sizes range from 5 x 7″ to a maximum of 24 x 36. and there should be an option to fit standard frame sizes. 

In the case you need a special size let us know, there is no custom charge, or just place the order for the the next size up and send us a note in the checkout message window with the preferred size.
