: is it possible to patent a candle design? somebody told me if i sent a picture of my candles via mail to myself, stating they are original desings that it could hold up in court as a patent item? is this in fact true?
There are design patents and utility patents. Sending mail to yourself may not be admissible in court as a self serving declaration. We suggest a Reality Check® so that you can get a better picture of what you can do, can't do and how to do.
