If you’ve never been on Etsy, there’s a reason for you to check it out today. A small poster shop, PatentPrints, has over 15 pages of some of the coolest poster designs I’ve seen in a while. The design shop takes patent diagrams to create detailed posters of various technological breakthroughs, and some of the hottest entertainment properties in history. Think Star Wars, Legos and Star Trek.
In the shop, you can take a look at their various options and sizes. Prices start at $6.99 and quickly go up from there. Want a custom size? They can handle it. Most patent diagrams have been released online, so they are in the public domain. That means the shop isn’t subject to US copyright law, allowing it to create works of art for your living room.
Browsing through the shop, you immediately get the feeling of why didn’t I think of this. The diagrams are already out there, but PatentPrints jumped all over the idea. The base poster design has a chalkboard look, but you can change it to fit your home’s style. Personally, I think the chalkboard look is fantastic.
