Technical Drawings

Art of Invention

PatentPrints is a doubly appropriate Grommet—started by one Maker who celebrates other Makers. Founder Cole Borders makes high-quality prints of the original patent drawings for a myriad of inventions. From household items to toys to machines, these prints are technical yet refined and even playful.

Cole was first inspired by a
patent drawing of a duck call—it was interesting and artful. Intrigued by schematics and blueprints, he loved the idea that most products start with a hand drawing. So he began producing patent art prints that make distinctive pieces with an educational flare.

Cole’s background in printing and passion for design are the perfect combination to bring these incredible drawings to life. Printed on matte cardstock, each one looks authentic while being appropriate for any home or office wall. From the everyday things we use at home, to specialized items relied on by professionals or hobbyists, these prints add a bit of history and personalization to your space.

    Can you do my father's patent? If patent numbers were given to you would you do a special order? He just turned 81 yesterday! Having his patent done as well would be a great gift. I would be interested for Both my father's patent and my brother's as well.

    I just saw Kelly's message. I am also interested in ordering a print of one of my Dad's patents. Please let me know if this is possible, and if so, provide the details. Thank you.

    I am so excited to see these! My father drove a 1948 Willys Jeep pickup until about 1985! I have just found the PERFECT Father's Day gift!

    @Cole I am interested in the Willy Jeep also, my husband would love it! He just put together a model. I think they would go together in his office nicely. How do I get in touch?

    Great idea Cole. I guess that's why your product is able to be sold through The Grommett. I just bought the toilet paper PatentPrint for the bathroom, of course. I also bought four other prints for a future den. Thanks
