Beginning April 18, 2023, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is shifting towards issuing paper waste-reducing electronic patent grants (eGrants) to patent recipients, a new process that delivers the official copy of patent grants in an electronic format. As a courtesy, they will provide a bound paper version as a ceremonial copy throughout a limited transition period, and then for a nominal fee thereafter.

The PTO Announcement can be viewed using the USPTO link found here: eGrants | USPTO.
