BibBoards Receives Patent Office Allowance

San Ramon, California -(Endurance Sportswire – Feb. 7, 2018) – BibBoards, Inc. (“BibBoards”), a leading athletics company focused on both consumer and business channels, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) has indicated that it intends to allow a patent for U.S. Patent Application No. 15/061,380, entitled “Fastener.” This upcoming patent covers race bib fasteners with a continuous periphery hole and is intended to protect the BibBoards® product. BibBoards will attend and sponsor 2018 Running USA Industry Conference in Austin, Texas on February 11-13.

This upcoming patent strengthens BibBoards, Inc.’s growing intellectual property web. The company also owns U.S. Patent No. 9,320,326, U.S. Reg. No. 5,296,402 and U.K. Reg. No. 3,250,370 for the word mark “BIBBOARDS,” and pending international trademark applications.

Invented in 2009 by patent attorney Robert Greenspoon, BibBoards® first came to market in 2017 based on the skill and talent of Brian Goodell who is also an inventor and has extensive experience in bringing new ideas global over the past 15 years.

“The patentability of the BibBoards® product validates Rob’s early inventive work, and helps guarantee the company’s continued ability to defend the running world against unsafe safety pins for years to come,” said Goodell, President of BibBoards. “While expanding our overall intellectual property portfolio, this new patent will solidify the potential long-term market exclusivity of our unique BibBoards product.”

About the BibBoards® Product

BibBoards® is a two-piece lightweight race bib fastener with space for either stock or custom imagery. Racers love them. They are safer and easier to use than safety pins, and won’t feel heavy or cling like magnets do. They are perfect for runners and their clubs who want to race in their own custom logo, for race directors looking for new sponsorship channels, or for companies seeking to increase brand awareness within eye-catching “bricks and mortar” ad space. They are also available wholesale for retail stores. Consumers can place custom orders through www.bibboards.com, or purchase any of several existing fun designs through that website or Amazon.com.
