Digitally Remastered Patent Print Series

$9,807

231

The purity of a hand-crafted drawing can’t be matched. Patents are the perfect marriage of design and drawing. I’m fascinated by the way products and processes from hundreds of years ago have been methodically documented into these beautiful diagrams. It’s my goal to breathe new life into these timeworn treasures.

This series is about celebrating years of innovation and design. Without these archives, we would be without some many of the amazing inventions we use every day.

Each drawing has been digitally traced, to recapture the finest details. The drawings have been meticulously refined to enrich the unique shapes and shadows each subject possesses. After each design is remastered it's added to a master template, so that each patent matches the format of the one before it. With hundreds of designs to choose from, I'm sure you'll find something of interest.

 

We currently have over 220 designs completed so far. Our hope is to keep the collection going during the Kickstarter project. So, if you're looking for something special, just send us a message and we'll see what we can do about adding to the collection. The complete collection can be viewed here: charted.org

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These designs are printed on Heavy Weight 60lb Matte Finish paper. The size is 13" x 19". 

We did our best to include a variety of designs in the collection. Visit charted.org to see the full collection. These designs include patents things we love like: Beer, Guns, Printers, Bicycles, Coffee & Espresso, Guitars & other instruments, Football, Cars, Cameras, Submarines, Star Wars, Golf, Nintendo, Santa, Computers, Mr. Potato Head, a Mars Rover, Legos, a Laser Gun, Motorcycles, a Balloon, Engines, Pianos, Planes, Propellers, Bat Man Car, Bowling Pin and so many other great things. 

If you think of anything else you would like to have added to the collection, just shoot me a message here on Kickstarter. Hope you enjoy!

 

 

   

 

      

 

Risks and challenges

As with any successful project here on Kickstarter, the main challenge is often keeping up with the demand. I learned a lot about the entire production process during one of my last Kickstarter projects, City Prints. At this point, I'm pretty confident that I will be able to keep up with the demand while getting everything shipped out on time.

In addition, I've learned a lot about the best way to ship these posters to be sure they arrive in perfect condition. Each project will undoubtedly bring it's own unique challenges. I look forward to working through whatever I run into along the way. It's all a part of the process and if nothing else makes the story a bit more interesting.
