What are 'patent prints'?
Patent prints are a popular way to decorate your home or office, to express your passion, your profession or your hobbies. If video gaming is your thing, then a playstation controller patent, or a retro nintendo console patent would fit perfectly in your gaming room. If you're a lawyer who loves golf a set of golf patent prints, adorning your office walls, will express your personality perfectly. Designer? The Apple Mac is your workhorse, express it with the iconic Macintosh patent.
What is 'blueprint art'?
Blueprint art is another term to describe patent drawings and prints for display as wall art. The original patent drawings have a special unique quality. We enhance that by cleaning up the original drawings and presenting them on specially designed backgrounds to enhance the display of these iconic designs. Thus creating a new piece of 'Art' restored and enhanced for display.

If you do not know this, describe the patent or link to an online page that shows the patent design you are seeking to be printed.
Is it legal to reproduce a patent drawing?
Yes, patents design files are, by their nature, in the public domain. However, it is not legal to copy the actual patented technology detailed within the documents and drawings.
Do the prints have a border?
No, our Canvas prints are specifically prepared to wrap the full background color and texture, providing a stylish finish ready to hang. Similarly, our poster prints are printed edge-to-edge, the patent is displayed with a set space from the edges of the print. These posters can be mounted with a standard 'mounting' - most frames, when bought come with a suitable mounting border. Simply ensure that the inner frame of the mount is at least 10mm smaller than the print size.
If you do want a blank white border around your print, please let us know and we can custom print your order to your exact specifications.
