Cole Borders

Cole Borders, founder of Patent Prints, recreates the original patent drawings from a myriad of inventions. From household items and toys to machines and gadgets, these creations are technical yet refined and even playful.

Cole was first inspired by a patent drawing of a duck call—it was interesting and artful. Intrigued by schematics and blueprints, he loved the idea that most products start with a hand drawing. So he began producing patent art prints that make distinctive pieces with an educational flare.

Cole’s background in printing and passion for design are the perfect combination to bring these incredible drawings to life, images that add a bit of history and personalization to everyone who views them.
