Patent drafters charge $75 to $100 per sheet to prepare drawings -- but you can draw them yourself!

How to Make Patent Drawings is an essential guide for inventors who want to complete a crucial step in the patenting process themselves -- creating formal patent drawings that comply with the strict rules of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (and save hundreds or even thousands of dollars).

Written by two experts in the patent field, How to Make Patent Drawings,/i> shows you how to:

  • make utility patent drawings
  • make design patent drawings
  • utilize pen and paper, or digital equipment
  • respond to Patent Office Actions regarding drawings

    Plus, once you've secured a patent with your drawings, you can also use them to market and promote your product to prospective manufacturers and customers.

    The 6th edition is completely updated to reflect recent changes to patent law and the newest advances in technical drawing. It includes all necessary forms, plus step-by-step instructions for filling them out.

    About the Author:

    Originally from Philadelphia, San Francisco Patent Attorney David Pressman is a graduate of Penn State University (BSEE) and George Washington University Law School (JD) where he was on the Law Review. He has over 40 years of experience in the patent profession -- as a patent examiner for the U.S. Patent Office, a patent attorney in corporate and private practice, a university instructor, a columnist, and as author of the Patent and Trademark entries to the World Book Encyclopedia. He is an expert on patent filing, prosecution, and licensing and his books have charted the path for over 250,000 inventors. Patent It Yourself is the most highly recommended guide to patenting an invention. David is also co-author of The Inventor's Notebook (with Fred Grissom), How to Make Patent Drawings Yourself (with Jack Lo), Patent Pending In 24 Hours (with Rich Stim), and Patents For Beginners (with Rich Stim).

    Jack Lo is an inventor and a registered patent agent with many years of experience in preparing and prosecuting patent applications, including making formal patent drawings. He is the co-author of How to Make Patent Drawings Yourself.

    From Library Journal:

    Clear and adequately detailed patent drawings are just as crucial to a successful application as the textual information they illustrate. In response to reader demand, patent agent Lo and attorney Pressman have written a step-by-step guide to patent drawing. Created as a companion publication to Pressman's Patent It Yourself (Nolo, 1996), it's easier to understand than the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) equivalent, Guide for the Preparation of Patent Drawings (GPO, 1993). This book shows how to prepare formal drawings using a pen, a computer-aided design (CAD) program, a camera, or by tracing a photograph. It also notes common errors to avoid, tells how to interpret and respond to objections or rejections by the PTO, and explains terminology ("informalities," "enabling disclosure," "prior art") to which nonspecialists will be exposed in the process. Any library owning Pressman's Patent It Yourself (a self-help standard in its own right) will want this one, too.?Johanna Johnson, Dallas P.L.
