This invention is a meansfor mounting a sheet of paper ror the vlike which it Amaybe desired to display 'upon -a "suitable backing, the invention being particularly applicable to the mounting' of photographs,` etc.v upon the leaves of an album or-upon' a usual`-oardboard Fherein after employed lWillbe understood as referring to any photograph',sign, card, etc.; A'and the termbacking Will be similarly understood as lcoyering, anyvsupporting surface upon Which it may bei.` desired to mount f the display sheet. I y i f It'isthe object 'of the invention; to provide a mounting which is of extremely simple construction and .conveniently employedvfor 'lixing a display sheeton abaeking,`and which ,will preferably providean ornamental bor'- fderj for the vdisplay sheet siinulatingthe 4appearance of a usual picture frame. 'i A l It is a furtherv object.' ofthe invention -to *provide 4a mounting vWhichwvhile V'seeurely holding Ya display sheet in place upon a hacking, Will' permit of ready subsequent :removal of' Ithe display vsheet Without `marring"*or iin any way destroying th'esame."

Theborderis madel in various sizes'KY and shapes adapting it to overlie theedge of a display sheet 2 of corresponding size andfshape, and the border is of a Width'whereby its inner perimetral portion"` will appreciably overlie a `thefedge of sheet .2' While its 'outer rperimeter projects 15appreoiablybeyond.v the edge of the i displaysheet'fas shown in Fig. 1, so that fixing,:theffprojecting outer perimetraljfpor- 'gti'on'oftho border to the backing 3 by the'use P lofa ysuitable adhesive, the1.display sheet 2 will beheld in place on the backing v3 by the overlyinginner perimetral' portion of vthe border; -f'AneXtremely simple and conveni iently .handled mounting. for a photograph f "orrthe like isthus v provided, lwherein the Imounting conformsV totheshape of the ph'io-l ntograpli 'orfother display sheet and p ably o'verliesits'entire'perimeter,v Y
Inforder'rthat' the'v mountingmaypresentY Y La pleasing .and ornaliiental appearance for f enhanoingr'the artistic appeal'of the-display sheet, the upper side .of border EIl may be provided. with" anyl desired ornamental design, -apreferablyrprinted ,on'the sheet material of which thefborder Ais formed, and inpractice the border, which for economy in' manu-fao ture, is usually aflat'sheealxnaybeprinted so as tosimu-late'the appearance of a usual pieture 'frame having al carved: .surfaceg'lying l refer-i Y simulated frame.
in a plurality of planes. As an instance of this arrangement the printing on the border may include a judicious use of lights and Vshadows so as topresent the appearance of usual carved surfaces 4 connected by usual bevels and having the usual beading 6 of reduced thickness at the inner margin of the The mounting Will thus set off the photograph or other display sheet 2 which is held in place on backing 3, so as to present the appearance of a usual framed The bordel' 1 may be a perfectly viiat'sheet asshovvn in Figs. 1 and 2, with its underside gummed at only its outer perimetral portion as shown at 8, preferably by an adhesive vvhich is normally non-sticky but which readily adheres When moistened, so that the display sheet is heldin placesimply by` the overlying inner perimetral portion of the border Without adhering thereto. If .so desired the photograph or thelike may ythus be subsequently removed from backing 3 With- -outdestroying the display sheet 2, by simply tearing the outer perimeter 'of border 1 loose -from backing 3. If desired, and as shown at 48d in Fig. 1?,.the underside of the border may "be gummed-throughout its area, sothat 'the underside of the inner periir'ietraly portion of the border may be firmly secured to the undervlying'edge of display sheet 2, and the gummed underside of the outer perimeter of the borde may then begfixed to backing 3. Y
Inthe modification of the invention illustrated in Fig. 3, the border 1a is provided With 'projecting tabs 10, preferablyv `medi ally of each side of its outer perimeter, and the un-- dersides of these tabs as Well as the underside of'the outer perimetral portion of border '1a may be'gummed as shown at 8a, With therunderside'of the inner `perimetral portion l :of the border preferably free of the gum.
:The border ismounted on display sheet 2 as previously-described, With the display sheet held place by bending-tabslO backnnder the border soas to extend-over the kedge 'of Vthe display sheet to which the Vtabs are then Vsecured by the adhesive. The display sheet rWhenthus liXed relative to its border 1EL may bemounted on back-ingv 3 With the lgummed y'undersid-eof theouterperimetral portion of the border adhering to thebacking; and the display sheet :2`is thus securely held in place,
but may be removed at any time' Without de- Y i. -stroymg the same,'by tearing borderla loose from backing?) and then tearing the tabs :loose from the underside ofthe display sheet. `.In the still further modification shown in Figs. 4 and 5,' thezborder 1b is preferably of a material such as Cardboard Which may-be impressed ormoldedso that in cross-section -itsinner and outer perimetral portions will "be laterally. offset asvshoivn in 'Fig.f5; and falong'one of its sides, preferably the side ariaptedto' overlie ythenpperl transverse edge of the display sheet 2, the border 1b is preferably slotted at the junction of its laterally offset inner and outer perimetral portions as shown at 11. Theunderside of the outer perimetral portion-ofL the border is gummed as shown at 8b, so that the border may be se cured to backing 3 as previously described, and the display sheet 2 is then slipped under the border through slot 11 as shown by broken lines in Figs. 4 and 5, so as to position the edges of the display sheet beneath the overlying inner perimetral portion of the Aborder for holding the displaysheet in place. If theinner perimetral portion ofthe border is not secured to the'underlying edges of the i display sheet2, the latter may be readily With- I have thusprovided an extremely simple and ornamental mounting for photographs and the like, whereby the mountingA will enhance the artisticl appearance of the photograph and may simulate'a usual carved frame for conveniently securing the photograph or other display sheet to any desired backing, with the display sheet adapted fox-subsequent removal if so desired, Without tearing or `marring thesame.
I claim: 1. Means for mounting a'display sheet on a backing comprising an endless border of a Vperimetral portion ofthe border adapted to adhere to the backing.
Y 2. Means for mounting a display sheet on' V-a backing comprising an endless border `of a size and shape adapting its inner perimetral portion kto overlie the entire perimeter of the outer edge of the display sheet with the outer perimetral portion of the border projecting outwardly vbeyond said display sheet, tabs proj ect-ing outwardly beyond said outer perimetral portion of the border, an adhesive Yon the underside of the'tabs, the tabs being adapted to be bent back under and adhere to:
the display sheet, j and an adhesive on the underside' ofsaid outer perimetral portion of 'theborder adapted to .adhere tothe backing.
3. Means'for'mounting-a display sheet on .a ,l backing Ycomprising a border: adapted Vto for the same and the'mountingalso provides .95
overlie the outer edge of the display vsheet with the outer marginal portion of the border projecting outwardly beyond the display sheet, a tab projecting outwardly beyond saidl outer marginal portionof the border andA adapted to be bent back under the display sheet, and an adhesive on the underside of v said outer marginal portion of the border adapted to adhere to the backing. l'
