Jouve is a group of companies headquartered in Paris providing, in their own words, “customers with cross-media solutions for designing, enriching, showcasing and distributing content”, whatever that means. Those services include on-demand printing and web-to-print services. I would assume that Jouve has some kind of contract with the European Patent Office. However, are they printing anything for the EPO, much less patents and patent applications?

So, I just cannot fathom what Jouve is printing in Paris. Yet, even on the most recent applications published – such as EP 3 143 898 A2 “Anti-theft carrying bag with security and expansion panels and with carrying strap” (112 pages, no less) – or granted patents such as EP 3 047 756 B1 “Mobile beach basket” read “Printed by Jouve, 75001 PARIS (FR)” on the first page. If any reader has an answer to this riddle, please put it in the comments.
