I have a patent almost granted (a Design Patent).
 
So, my questuion is:
They granted me it:
 
1- Have they a starndard term to don't publishing patents that are 'Designs'?
 
2- If not, Can I request (maybe?) 6 months to avoid publication of the patent because is a Design, that have of couse, little protection.
 
3- If question # 2 ir true, how much I have to pay to the Uspto to don't publish it, so I can apply 10-20 new- similar ornamental other new design applications about the same stuff?
 
Can somebody answ er this 3 questions?

Thanks!

The only way to avoid publication of a design patent is to abandon it.  Issuance requires publication.  That's true for all patents that I'm aware of.
