I have this great idea, now what do I do?
It is very important that you tell no one of your invention until it is legally protected. Follow the steps listed below to protect your great idea. Complete all the steps and start calling yourself an inventor. Remember not all inventors become rich overnight, some never become rich. But, if you do not follow these steps you will be neither rich nor an inventor.

This is not legal advice, but steps we recommend. Remember tell no one of your invention until it is legally protected. The government agency responsible for issuing Patents is the United State Patent and Trademark Office. You can find their site at: www.uspto.gov

How do I get my products listed?
We are always looking for new products to display on this site. We offer seven attractive options to choose from. You can start with a classified ad, a single page, a full floor of merchandise or even a complete store. To have your products listed in our showcase section, go to the Idea Showcase - Ideas Wanted page.

How do I get my professional service firm listed?
We want to include as many helpful resources as possible for our visitors. There is no charge to list your resource. To have your business, organization or institution listed in our resource section, go to Getting Your Site Listed page.

How do I get a copy of your catalog?
At TGIF we are committed to serving the needs of our online visitors with the newest most innovative products available anywhere. We believe we can best do this by focusing on locating and presenting for your review the best from as many sources as possible. We do not operate a store or sell products from this site. Therefore, we do not produce a printed catalog.
