The four steps to patenting are:  prior art search and patentability evaluation,  application writing,  application filing, and  patent prosecuting. Contact us for help with any of the four steps to patenting.
Step 1: Design Patent Prior Art Search
A Design Patent Prior Art Search is a search to determine whether there are products and inventions similar to the design that you want to patent. This is an essential first step to applying for a patent. At Carson Patents our design patenting prior art search service includes an evaluation of the designs patentability. Contact us for a search, or to start the steps to patenting for your unique inventive design.
Important TIP: Good searching is integral to proper application writing. Searching informs good design patenting by locating existing similar designs.
Step 2: Design Patent Application Writing
Design Patent Application Writing is the second step to patenting. Writing design applications is crafting the description and proper completion of the drawings. Design patents have only one claim. The claim is for the invented design as shown and described.
At Carson Patents drawings are included in our design patent application writing services.
Step 3: Design Patent Application Filing
Design Patent Application Filing is the third step to patenting. Filing an application is submitting all of the documents, forms, and inventor disclosure information needed for an application to the patent office. Once an application is submitted, the invention becomes patent pending. Contact us to start the steps to patenting.
Important TIP: Color drawings, illustrations, and photos should only be used when essential to convey the design. Design Patent drawings are normally black and white line drawings.
Step 4: Design Patent Prosecution
Design Patent Prosecution is the fourth step to patenting. It is the conducting of communications with the USPTO regarding the examination of a patent application, or a patent. For design applications, it is mostly things like letters to address any rejections or objections made during examination. Contact us for patent prosecution help, or to start the steps to patenting.
Patent Prosecution Services are the patent services needed to either represent a patent application through examination, appeal an examination decision, or conduct opposition, reissue, or reexamination proceedings. Patent Prosecution happens after a patent is pending, both before and after a patent is granted.
