Why Are Patent Drawings Important?

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” While cliché, this adage holds true, especially when it comes to patent drawings. Most of the time, an idea is better explained when its description is accompanied by a detailed and accurate illustration. A visual depiction of an invention helps the patent examiners understand what it’s all about.

Read on as Legal Advantage, your leading provider of trademark illustration services, explains how patent drawings provide complete disclosure of your creation.

Understanding Design Patent Drawings

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) defines a design as something that “consists of the visual ornamental characteristics embodied in, or applied to, an article of manufacture.” In short, a patent drawing is a visual representation and explanation of your idea. Most of the time, a patent applicant will be asked to provide a patent drawing of their invention, especially when it’s capable of being illustrated and doing so would help in the better understanding of your creation.

Design patent drawings should faithfully showcase every feature of your invention as described in your claim. They should also meet the USPTO’s specified requirements. This may include a certain size and type of paper, with precise margins. Following these guidelines closely will help your patent application process go more smoothly.
