Original designs created by PatentWear from actual, authentic patents—taking patent art to a whole new level since 1995! Collect them on apparel for men, women, kids and babies, framed and unframed prints and canvas, tote bags, and mugs. There’s truly something for everyone. We always tell The Story, too!
The global COVID-19 pandemic has certainly been (and continues to be) a difficult time for everyone. We are working closely with our printing partner to adapt to this new reality. Along with the safety of employees, our priority is to continue to support our customers as best we can.
We hope you'll understand that with both businesses and customers making massive shifts to e-commerce, shipping carriers are struggling to process all the incoming orders. Some of the carriers are limiting the daily number of packages they accept, and millions of shipments are stuck in distribution centers, leading to extensive industry-wide shipping delays
Our printing/fulfillment partner is doing its best to get your orders out on time, but once they're handed over to the carriers, it's up to their sorting center capacity. We see that the shipping estimates provided by our carriers aren't fully reliable anymore, which means that sadly some of your holiday orders may not have arrived on time even though they were submitted before the stated deadlines.
Also note that the tracking links take longer than usual to update. The overload of shipments in distribution centers means carriers are slower to register and ship your orders. Sometimes the tracking info won't change for over a week until the item is scanned, or even up to the point of delivery. Please know that your orders aren't lost—they're still being processed by the carriers.
With air travel to the UK being limited due to Covid-19, shipments to the UK are delayed. We don’t yet know how long the delays will be, but we’re assured by our carriers that packages continue to be delivered with charter flights.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during these trying times. Stay safe, and please take care of yourselves!
DON'T BE DUPED!
We are a small, family-owned business and this is our original, authentic PatentWear site. We have never authorized any person or company outside of the USA—especially China— to sell our trademarked and exclusive PatentWear designs online. Please do not be fooled by ripoff sites, especially those “based” in China. It has come to our attention that a number of them have stolen our site's images and are crudely attempting to use them to sell as “products” at various online sites. There is absolutely no way they could ever possibly reproduce our designs without the original art and print files. Thus, we believe they are a scam that will take your money without ever shipping a product—beware!
