Patent Cube Questions and Answers

Patent Cube Award

Patent Cube Award is where you can learn more and buy Patent Cubes.

We have had a lot of clients and potential clients showing interest and asking good questions about our patent cubes in the last few months. So I would like to address some of those questions:

Question 1: What is the size of the Patent Cube?
Answer 1:
Each cube is 4” x 4” x 4” and weighs approximately 7 pounds.

Question 2: What is the cube made from?
Answer 2: The cube is solid hand-polished black granite.

Question 3: Why granite and not marble?
Answer 3: We use granite for the Patent Cube because it is much stronger material and engraves beautifully.

Question 4: How is the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) seal medallion made?
Answer 4: The USPTO seal medallion is die struck and plated with 24kt gold to which creates a 2 dimensional seal which is then color filled to enhance the beautiful american eagle.

Question 5: Instead of having the USPTO seal medallion can we have our company logo on the medallion?
Answer 5: Yes. Our Art Department will work with you to design a custom medallion which will be inlaid in the granite patent cube. There are many options when it comes to the medallions; like plating (gold, silver, brass, antique gold, etc.), relief (2 dimensional, 3 dimensional, multi-dimensional), colors (single, multi-color, no color fill) and other options to consider when designing a medallion. Please contact one of our specialist and they will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Question 6: Can we have our company logo engraved on the side of the Patent Cube?
Answer 6: Yes, we can engrave practically any graphic, logo or information on the cubes.

Question 7: Are the cubes just for granted patents?
Answer 7: No, we have a couple corporate clients that give their inventors a Patent Cube for every patent application and a Patent Plaque for the granted patent. Other companies have used the cube as a general IP award to show their appreciation for their entire Intellectual Property Department.

Question 8: If we are ordering multiple patent cubes for our IP Banquet is there a discount?
Answer 8: Yes. We work with our clients to meet their needs. Please keep in mind that these Patent Cubes are premium awards which are handcrafted by skilled craftsmen. Multiple discounts are based on quantity and your specifications.

Question 9: What is the best way to display Patent Cubes?
Answer 9: There are many way to display the cubes, but we have found that most of our clients who receive multiple Patent Cubes stack them in row or in a pyramid.

Question 10: Do you ship outside of the US?
Answer 10: Yes, since 1993 we have been shipping our Patent Plaques and Patent Awards around the world. Name the country and we probably have a client their.
