Hence, the insert here contemplated may be used stock stationery of an ofllce or firm instead of requiring special and hence expensive stationery.
Despite its simplicity, the invention may take various forms within the skill of persons familiar with the art. Hence, the prior pertinent art rather than the present specific disclosure should form the basis of interpretation of the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. A device of the character described comprising a creased sheet, an insert comprising .two sections folded and integrally joined at their lower ends, the upper ends of said sections being amxed to each other, a score line near the lower edge of each section, and a glue-coated portion on each section between each score line and the fold between the sections, said glue-coated portions being glued to portions of said crease and at both sides thereof.
2. In combination, a sheet having a crease therein, and an insert comprising a her having its fold disposed along said crease, said member havingits front and rear portions united to each other at a point remote from the fold.
provided with a glueon the regular said sheets adjacent folded memmentioned crease, and a score lineadiacent each area whereby upon unfolding said sheet at its crease said insert will assume a position transverse to the plane of said sheet.
3. In combination, a sheet having a crease therein, and an insert comprising a member having a fold along said crease, said member comprising front and rear portions joined at a point remote from said fold, each portion being provided with a glue-coated area for union with the sheet adjacent thementioned crease and at both 1 sides thereof, said glue-coated'areas each being defined by said fold and a score line on each of the front and rear portions, whereby upon unfolding said sheet at its crease said insert will assume a position transverse to the plane of said sheet.
4. In combination, a sheet having a crease therein,'and an insert comprising a member having a fold along said crease, said member comprising front and rear portions joined at a point remote from said fold, and each portion being provided with a glue-coated area for union with the sheetadjacent the mentioned crease and at both sides thereof, whereby upon unfolding said sheet at its crease said insert will assume a position transverse to the plane of said sheet, said front and rear portions each bending at the opposed edges of said glue-coated areas.
