I have a proto type of a new poduct I have made. I was just wondering who do I need to get in touch with about this, and if anyone would be interested in my idea?

Hey Kevin,

My husband and I just finished the patent process on a tool he came up with. Took about four years in all.

The first thing is to get the plans and drawing and such of your idea and send it to yourself in a certified letter. This locks in the date and the fact that you are the inventor for this idea.

If you want to go further, you contact a patent lawyer and they will start the process for you through the patent office. I'm not sure if an individual could do the process without the lawyer, but after seening all of the things that had to be done, I am glad we had the lawyer.

Another thing to do is to talk to people you know who would use this item and ask them to use it, and give you feedback. We did that and before it was too late we fixed a small but critical flaw in our original plan.

To get your product from your drawing table to the retail stores is a long road, but can be very rewarding if you stick to the task.

What type of product is it?

I look forward to hearing back from you. Good luck.

India R.
