Document Your Idea
Thinking only about the idea is not good enough, It will not make people and the market believe that you have made an invention.

It could be any bound notebook on which you make sure that it cant be rewritten or removed. This will make your idea of an invention secure.
You have to do a lot of research on your idea keeping in mind the legal and business standpoint. At first do thorough research on different websites that whether the idea you came up with had been patented by someone before or not. After complete satisfaction, you don’t need to start working on your invention immediately, first take some time and search about its market that whether there is the demand for your product or not and if luckily you got it all done you have to make sure that its price is affordable by researching about its cost of manufacture and distribution.
Now you have to make a prototype i.e. that you have to make your paperwork, that could be your journal in a model so that you can demonstrate your invention, the idea to all the people, different companies or maybe in market whatever is your demand. Always remember that before or after making the prototype you should not patent your file immediately maybe you have or need to do some changes in the original idea.
File A Patent
After having a working model i.e. your prototype, you can now file a patent. Mainly there is two type of patent.
- Utility Patents (For new processes or machines)

Instead of filing the patent yourself, it is better to use the assistance of a patent agent so that no one can infringe on it.
