TAG HOLDER non TEXTILE nannies Application fi led December '16, 1929. se l No. 414,414.

This invention relates to a card holder and more particularly to a holder for a tag or label to be applied to a roll of textile fabric,

such as silk, cotton "and the like for indicat ing certain data concerning the material, such as price, order number, quality etc! 7 It is the present practicein the textile industry, particularly in the silk industry, to.

prepare the fabrics for retail distribution, by

the retailer, such asthe order number and a space for a record of cuts made from the roll and therefore, it mustremain attached to the" roll after the wrappings have been removed.-. It also contains identifyingdata utilized by the wholesale merchant or manufacturer as an a d iii-filling orders. It is essential, there fore. that the label be availablefor inspection;

while the inner and outer wrappings are still around the bolt. This may be accomplished. by extending the cord, to which the labelis attached, through the wrapping extending over the end of the roll and permitting the card to dangle from the end of the wrapped roll of material. In as much as these dangling cards are troublesome. becoming entangled with each other when two rolls are placed'adjacent each other, it is the customary practice to tuck the cards in between the inner and outer wrappers,from which position they may be removed for inspection, when required 'The rolls of fabric material are. piled on shelves in the wholesale or manufacturing establishment, with the ends carrying the tags,'foremost, and when it isnecessary to fill an order, the order clerk goes along the row of shelves and examines'thetags until the proper roll is located. This necessitates that each card be removed from between the innerand outer wrappers, inspected and replaced. This procedure is time consuming bothersome. l It is one ofthe objects ofm'y invention, therefore, to providej a cardholder'which may be readily attached to thewr app'ing of I! the roll or package and which will support thecard or tag in a position adjacent the end of the roll, with the identifying data thereon exposed: E N j v Another object-isto produce a tag or card, holder for rolled fabricsor similar material,

which is inexpensive, which may be easily ap- V plied to the rolland which presents a neat 1 appearance. I V

-Other obiectsand'a'dvanta esofthefinvene tion'will appear from thefollowing description, taken in connection with the accom panying drawings and appended claims;

In accordance with myinvention I employ a tag or label which is secured to the inner I tube or'coreof the roll by a cord which ex tends through theinner wrapping. the cus tomary ,way. I then provide a card holder: consisting of an open-faced envelope or card receptacle secured to a band or strap of paper, clothbrother relatively tough andjdur-j' able material. The card holder is applied to the roll afterthe inner wrapping has been put on, with. the cardrecepta'cle positioned substantially centrally'of the end of the roll and the band extending across the end of the roll and along each side thereof a short distance; The outer wrapping may then be 'applied andserves to hold the card holder in place. The 'card may beinserted in the jenvelope with the identifying: data visible through the window'of theenvelope' j o Obviously, other means of attaching the card holder to the rolljmay be employed, such as anadhesive material. V In order that the invention may be more fully understood, reference'will' be had to p v the accompanying drawings in which:

i Figure 1 is a perspective View of a rollof material before the wrapping has been 9p- 1O10of Figure 8; and:

25 l mation individual to the particularroll, such v a with the inner and outer wrappings applied and embodyingmy invention;

, Figure 4 is a view of one form of my card holder unattached from the. roll;

Figure 5 is a view of the blank from which Q the cardholder of Figure 4 may be produced;

ed form of Figure 11 is a viewofa modifiedform of blank from. hich' the card holder shown in Figure 8 maybe produced.

Referring firstto Figure a roll oftextile' fabric 15 which is wound upon a central rigid tube 1 6.ofan'y suitable material,,such as cardboard. V A tagor label 17 is permanently secured to the end of the tube 16' by a cord 18. The car-(I17 contains inforasthe'ordernumber, price, quality, etc.

The roll 15 is first wrapped in an outer covering 19 of paper-which is foldedover the ends of the-roll, as at 20,;to cover and protect V the ends. The'cord 18, is extended through-- the wrappingiwith the card 17 exteriorly;

thereof." 1

The card: 21, the subject matterlof the present invention, is next:

1 applied .;to the end ofthe roll prior to Wrap-' ping the rollin its outer, covering 22.; The

outer covering 22 preferably consists of heavy .The card holder comprises an open-faced envelope or, card receptacle 23 having'a win dow 24 therein. .One end 25 of theenvelope is open and the opposite end 26 is partially closed by apair of tabs27. The envelope (iii;

is'secured toor formed integrally with a band 'or'strap 28, medially thereof,-and the ends of V the band'28are flared or widenedat 29.

In Figure 5 I have shown one form of blank from which the card holder maybe produced. The band28, at its midsection, has transversely extending portions 30 and 31. The part 81 has the window,opening24therein, the tabs 27 thereon, and a 'tab '32. V The envelope is formed,,as will be obvious, by folding'the part 31 along'the dotted line, 33, onto the] part 30, the tab 32 being bent around the outer edge of the part 30 and glued to theback side thereof. Likewise, the tabs 27 are bent around the edges 34 and glued to the back side thereof,- As stated before, the :tabs 27 serveto'partially close one end of the envelope, the opposite'end being open to'perrnit I the card to beinserted.

The card holder is applied substantially centrally of endjof the roll, with the view on the line 1, I have shown flared ends 29 of the band 28 bent over the sides of the roll, prior to the applying of the outer wrapping 22 to the roll, sothat the ends 29 are held firmly in place by the outer wrap- The .card 17 which is still secured to ping.

the tube 16, by the cord 18, is then placed, 1 in the envelope with the identifying data 1 visible through the open window 24.

Figures 6 and 7 show anotherform of blank i n which the window portion of the envelope is m'ade separate from the back port-ion thereof. This results in economy of paper,permitting a greater number of 7 card holders to be cut from a sheet of definite 'size/ The tabs 32' and 32" of the window portion, are bent around the edges of the cen- I tral part 35 0f the band andthe tabs 27 are" bent around the edges 34 a11d glued to-the back of the central part of the band.

With the form of card holder shown in Fig 1 ure 4 some difiicultyrhas been experienced with the portion of the envelope extending beyond the band 28 catching on various ob jects during handling of the rolls, and tearing or .mutilating the band at the juncture ofthe envelopetherewith. To avoid this difliculty,

I have shown a modification, inv Figure 8, in which the band 28 is made of substantially the same width as theenvelope. V Y.

As shown/in Figure 9, the blank from which this form is produced, is somewhat different from thatshown in Figures 5, Grand? In the blank showniniFigure 9,'a flap 37 is provided, having a Width equal to the width of the oenvelope.

This'flap is folded. along the line38 over the open faced portion 39' .of the envelope. afterwhich the portion 39 is folded along the line 40onto the band 28,

1 which is ofa width at least equal tothat of 7' v Thetab 32? isthen .bent,v around behind the bandand glued to the back side thereof; Theflap37 may be glued,

the envelope.

down to the face of the band 28, if desired,

but this is not necessary. The flap 37 forms an end closure 41 for the envelope. y

InFigure' 11 I have shown a form which requires no gluing'whatsoeveri Thejblank is similar to that of Figure 9 except that place-of the small tab-32, I have provided'a V flap 42 which isiof substantially the full 1 length of the band28. The fiap 42 folds around the back of theband 28 and isheld in position by the .band 28 when the deviceis applied to the end of the roll.

17 It is obvious that thedevice may take a. I variety of other forms, and that many changes may be made therein without departing from the invention',and therefore, I do not desire to be limited tothe exact details 7 shown and described eXce'pt in, accordance 'with the appended claims. 7
