May I get more than one name on a plaque?

What is an Assignee?
An assignee is the person or entity to whom rights under a patent are legally transferred. U.S. Patents are granted to individuals, however most are owned by companies. Often, employees and employers have legal contracts in place that requires the transfer of patent ownership from the individual to the company.

Inventors are often proud of both the invention and the company for whom they work. Plaques that celebrate all three of these are a great way to celebrate each new innovation. You may choose to feature the company, patent or patents, or inventor and inventors however you desire with Ben Silver Patent Plaques. See our products for standard options, or contact us about designing a custom plaque.

What information is included on the bottom of the plaque?
The wording that appears on many of US patent plaques is called the “Director’s text.” It is the text that appears on the cover of your official patent document.
What drawing will be on my patent plaque?
We use your patent number to access the full patent document and then use the drawing from the front page of your patent on your plaque. If you have questions, concerns or modifications please contact us.
What is the best way to have a name appear when buying for someone else?
We recommend displaying the name exactly as it appears on the patent. We pull this information for you when we conduct a patent search on your patent number.
How can I be sure I ordered the right Patent?
We will personally review your order with you before creating your plaque.
