Abstract
In general, all matchboxes comprise a built-in strike surface. The present invention is a detachable self-adhesive strike for matches, which moreover comprises with the back an advertising space. The device comprises a first surface, having a match strike material and a second surface opposite the first surface having an advertising space. The strike surface is built on self-adhesive rigid paper of rectangular form with which the reverse is to soak with a self-adhesive adhesive easy to remove. The reverse soaked with adhesive is protected by wax paper also in rectangular form, of which the outside or reverse will be used as advertising space.

Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention is referred to the matches, match strike surface and advertising.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The present invention is composed of two parts:

[0003] The first part is a match strike material fixed on rigid paper of rectangular form with the back surface soaked with a self-adhesive adhesive. (# 1, FIGS. 1, 2, 3 and 4).

[0004] The second part is made with wax paper to allow an easy takeoff (# 2 FIGS. 1, 2, 3 and 4). The wax paper must overflow slightly the match strike so allowing a fast takeoff (# 3, FIGS. 1, 2 and 3). It should be noted that, any other process that may facilitate takeoff can be used. Dimensions, forms as well as the color of the self-adhesive match strike can vary to answer the needs of the market.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0005] It is of everyday usage to incorporate the match strike to a matchbox. The principal disadvantage of this practice is its absence of safety in particular for the young children who can easily cause a fire dice if they are in possession of matches. Maintaining a strike surface separated from the matchbox can correct this disadvantage and thus decrease the fire hazard, the detachable self-adhesive being able to be fixed thanks to its self-adhesive character at a hidden place, separated from the matchbox containing the sticks.

[0006] In addition to the security it provides, the self-adhesive match strike that we call “D. Match Lighter” can be used as advertising medium. Indeed its reverse will have to be used as space to make advertising on a large scale. One will be able to print there thus logos, photographs, drawings, flags and other forms of printed advertising.

[0007] Moreover, the self-adhesive match strike is a convenient tool. In addition it occupies very little space. Because it is made of paper and because it is self-adhesive, it can be fixed on any surface and be removed without destroying it. The smokers can thus fix it on the heels of their shoes, their wallets and their packages of cigarettes or all other container serving them, as matchbox. In the restaurants and any public place where it is allowed to smoke, one can fix them on ashtrays. At the house one can fix it on any surface out of the range of young children and on matchboxes not provided with strike surface.

[0008] Lastly, the self-adhesive match strike can allow the development of small waterproofed bags containing sticks of matches easy to arrange in the pockets, wallets and even the packages of cigarettes.

[0009] The present invention is composed of two parts:

[0010] The first part is a match strike material fixed on rigid paper of rectangular form with the back, which is soaked with a self-adhesive adhesive. (# 1, FIGS. 1, 2, 3 and 4)

[0011] The second part is made with wax paper to allow an easy takeoff (# 2 FIGS. 1, 2, 3 and 4). The wax paper must overflow slightly the brush so allowing a fast takeoff (# 3, FIGS. 1, 2 and 3). It should be noted that any other process that may facilitate takeoff can be used. Dimensions, forms as well as the color of the self-adhesive match strike can vary to answer the needs of the market.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0012] In the drawings which illustrate the invention,

[0013]FIG. 1 is a front view of the device i.e. the surface of the match strike itself,

[0014]FIG. 2 is a sight of behind. It shows the back surface of the wax paper, which will be used as advertising space.

[0015]FIG. 3 is a sight of profile in the direction length. One can notice that the wax paper overflows a little to allow an easy takeoff.

[0016]FIG. 4 is a sight of profile widthwise

[0017] To use the self-adhesive match strike, it is enough to detach the wax paper, which protects adhesive surface and then, fix the strike, thanks to its adhesive surface on a surface of the selected receiving object or housing.

[0018] As we have already mentioned, this receiving object can be: a heel of shoe, a wallet, a handbag, a package of cigarette, or any other object or secure surface selected by the user. Once that is fixed, the match strike surface can be used, by rubbing a stick of match on it.
