ENVELOP.

V Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. ie, 1921.

elpplication filed October 8, 1919. Serial No. 328,175.

To {ZZZ whom it may concern.

Be it known that I, Gnoncn F. HOGAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook, State of Illinois, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Envelops; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

It is the object of the present invention to provide an envelop for holding record cards and the like in such manner that names or other data printed at the top edge of the card will be exposed through a window or like opening at the extreme lower edge of the envelop. Such envelops are of service in hotels to carry the record'cards of guests with the portion of the envelop, though of course such envelops are adapted to other uses.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a front View with an inclosed card, and Fig. 2 a rear view of a complete envelop. Fig. 3 shows this envelop in course of manufacture with the bottom flap ready to be folded up. Fig. 4, on a smaller scale, shows the paper blank from which the envelop is made. Fig. 5 is a modification wherein the glassine paper is omitted from the window or like opening of the envelop.

The paper blank illustrated in Fig. 4 comprises a front portion 1, having the usual gummed top flap 2, and having side flaps 3 and 4 and a bottom flap 5 which can be folded over, as shown in Fig. 2, to form the 1 back of an envelop, as is usual. Punched out of the lower portion of the front face 1 and the adjacent portion of the bottom flap 5, is an oblongwindow 6 which, when the envelop is complete, forms a notch extending across the entire bottom edge of the envelop,

name showing through the bottom except where the end portions 7 and 8 of the bottom flap form ledges or stops at each end of the notch. This windowv may be covered with glassine paper, or, if desired, theglassine paper may be omitted and the notch left open to more completely expose the contents of the envelop.

The contents of the envelop, form of a card, such as a hotel are securely held and protected and will not slip out at the bottom edge of the envelop because of the ledges 01' stops 7 and 8, but reading matter on the card, even though printed at the extreme upper edge, as is customary with cards held in a card index, will be visible through the notched part of the envelop, whether it is or is not covered with glassine paper. a

I claim:

1. An envelop formed from a blank having at the junction line of the back flap and body a cutout or opening, symmetrical on opposite sides of the said junction line and of a length such that the end flaps will extend across the ends of the opening when the blank is folded whereby to form at each end of the opening in the completed envelop supports for the rear face of an article Within the envelop. v

2. An envelop formed from a blank having at the junction line of the back flap and body .a cutout or opening, symmetrical on opposite sides of the said junction line and of a length such that the end flaps will extend across the ends of the'ope'ning when the blank is folded whereby to form at each end of the opening in the completed envelop supports for the rear face of an article within the envelop, and a covering of transparent material for the cutout or opening.

usually in the guest record,

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.

GEORGE FRANCIS-HOGAN.
