METHOD FOR TRANSFERRING PRINTED FIGURES OR PICTURES Filed April 20, 1931 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 l 5. E 5 mvau iz ATTORNEYS Patented Oct. 17, 1933 r'rG Es oRrIo'rUnEs I Y Myinvention relates-to a met-hod for transferring printed figures or pictures, and it consists in the. steps". hereinafter described and claimed.

"An object of myinvention' is to provide a .methr-y f odfortransferring printed figures or pictures or portions thereof. '1 V .-:A further object is to. provide a .m'ethodzfor transferring printed pictures or'portionsthereof, whereby. the transferred pictures may have borders of'desired shapes. 2- f 1 Another object is to provide amethod for transferring printedpictures or portions thereof. whereby the transferred pictures may have borderssimulating those of stamps. 1

A further object is. to provide amethod whereby printed. pictures or. portions thereof which have been colored with .crayon,:penci1 orthe like; may be transferred together with the coloring.

1 Afurther object is to providea method whereby I ?20 printed pictures or portions thereof,: which have struction for transferring pictures.

Other objects and advantages will appear in the following specification, and the novel features of the invention will be particularly pointed out in theappended claims.

A-handle 3 is provided having a; recess 4 for re-v ceiving a peg -or. pin 5 whichisfrictionallyheld, in the recess 4, A portion 6 of the peg Sextends Without thehandle 3 and with'in'the opening '2 of thejdie blockyl. The peg. 5 -is provided with a slot 7 therein which terminates in. an, enlarged opening 8. The slot 'Tprovidesportions' 9 and 10. The enlarged opening .8 :providesrelativelythin wall portions 11 whereby-the, portions 9 and 10. may be more resilient.

The space between the head portion and thelines 1'1 may be'co'loredwith a crayon, pencil, or similar means. The surfacebounded by the lines 17 is then moistened with a transferring liquid. The sheet 18 on which the picture is-printed is then. disposed on a resilient pad or base 19Ihaving a plane surface or face 20. The pad or base 19 may be made of any desired substance/such as rubber, fiber or the likes disposed on any supporting structure, such as The 'pad 191 may be the top of a table 21. It will, of course, be understood that the pad proper may be dispensed with the top of a table. When the pad is dispensed with, however, the definition of the transferred picture is less clear than when the pad is used.

I A blank stamp 22 shown in Figure2 may be 22 in such manner that the edges thereof will be as directly aligned with the lines 17 as possible.

The top'23 of the handle Bis then strucka blow witha hammer or like means. After the die 1 is m 1 i The die block 1 is then superimposed on the stamp removed from the stamp 22 and the stamp is removed from the sheet 18 and inverted, it will be seen that the picture and the coloring'will' have been transferred to the stamp, as shown in Fig- -ure 4. The transferred color of the crayon: is

of anysuitable material, 'such as metal, hard denoted by the stippled area 24. Thus it will be seen that, a transferred picture has a very-pleas ing appearance in the form of a stamp, which may be pasted or' otherwise disposed in scrapbooks or the like; It will also be seen that the original picture may be colored or otherwise changed to suit the particular desires or tastes of the individual. I It may be desired that a picture be transferred directly to apage 25 of a scrap book. instead of to a blank stamp as hereinbefore described; It 1 may be, however, desirable thatthetransferred picture have the appearance of astamp or that'f the background thereof have a different contour. For this purpose various die blocks 26 are pro 'vided'. f The contour of the die face of each die block corresponds to the contour of the back- I ground of the picture which it is desired to transthe stamp 22.v The-die block 26 is substituted for the die block 1; The remaining steps are the same as have been hereinbefore described for transferring a picture to a stamp; When the die blo'ck'26 is used,the contour of the-background of. thepicture'is asshown'i at 27 in Figure 5.

1 The contour of the background as shown at'28 would result if the die-block 1 were used. Shapes 29 land 30 are illustrative'of,other backgrounds which it mightbe desirable tohave in connec-' tion with the transferred picture. The die faces the die face thereof areprovide'd'with-tapered recessed portions 31" which formthe background die-block in which the top part 32amay be made "A1though,I haved my Process as trans- When; used in this connection, a form of die should be used having a face conforming to the wood or the like.
