Slip Into History with Wearable Patent Art

PatentWear.com brings history alive with its innovative idea for wearable t-shirt art created from authentic patents.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Newly-launched e-store PatentWear.com is giving everyone an inventive opportunity to "slip into a little bit of history" with its innovative idea for original t-shirt designs created from authentic and historical patents.

Passions ranging from aviation to wine, and including such popular themes as sports (from baseball and football to surfing and SCUBA), music, science and technology, games, fishing, gardening, vehicles, tools, tea, and of course "wacky" are among the many represented. The company develops each design after extensive research by its team of ardent history buffs, artists, and designers, beginning with a search for the significant patents that have contributed to a given subject area and then focusing on the most artistically pleasing patent drawings upon which to build their new creations. With over eighty designs in more than twenty-four categories the company expects to provide something for every interest while also appealing to a wide range of niche wholesale markets.

"We're not sure if we are a history company selling t-shirts, or a t-shirt company selling history," said company founder, Joe McKeown. Either way, PatentWear.com is definitely on to something new in the competitive world of t-shirt messaging, with its intelligent combination of patent art and history.

Despite intriguing stories of controversy, mayhem, and even murder behind some patents, PatentWear's designs stick with the inventors, patent numbers, and dates just as the original patents were issued, while complementing the designs with typography that matches the era. Unlike other t-shirt companies that solely promote images, PatentWear prides itself on telling a studied version of what it calls The Story behind the designs as well. Some of these fascinating patents date back to the early 1800s, and are truly graphic reminders of just how far we've come in our modern society, and perhaps how much our modern conveniences are taken for granted.

With its careful research, novel compositions, and the illuminating story PatentWear tells of each design, the company is banking on a market that wants to share with them the joys of discovery, while celebrating the spirit of inspired geniuses and their inventions through an array of original, wearable patent art.
