Non-Provisional Design Patent Services
A non-provisional design patent application is used to apply for a patent on the ornamental design of an article of manufacture. An article of manufacture is anything that is made, not just things that are traditionally considered to be manufactured. Design patents can be granted for a wide range of products, including furniture, clothing, jewelry, and consumer electronics.
Design patents are important because they can give businesses a competitive advantage in the marketplace by preventing others from copying the unique design of their products. Design patents can also be used to attract investors and acquirers, and to increase the value of a business.

How to apply for a design patent
To apply for a design patent, you must file a design patent application with the USPTO. The patent application must include the following documents:
The application must include drawings or photographs of the design, as well as a written description of the design. The application must also include a single claim that defines the design.
Once you have filed a design patent application, the USPTO will examine it to determine whether it meets the requirements for design patent protection. If the USPTO finds that the design is eligible for design patent protection, it will issue a design patent. A design patent lasts for 15 years from the date of grant.
