Apni 11, 1944. R. E. JOHNSON ADHESIVE TAPE SALES TICKET Filed 001;. 31, 1941 ooaouooooooooooawfi V Alva/70,9 31/ /7 11/9 /4004 I v Mir/M Patented Apr. 11, 1944 UNITED STATES I PATENT OFFICE ADHESIVE TAPE SALES TICKET Ralph E. Johnson, Indianapolis, Ind.

Application October 31, 1941, Serial No. 417,307

3 Claims.

This invention relates to a combined sales ticketand package sealing tape having use in stores where packages are wrapped and secured by means of a length of adhesive tape and a sales ticket accompanies the package for presentation to a cashier or the like.

The invention has for a primary object the combination of a sales ticket with adhesive tape whereby, for example, in a butcher shop within a grocery store, the meat cutter may wrap up a quantity of meat with a paper wrapper and pull the tape through the usual moistening device, tear of! a suitable length and apply it over the end of the paper wrapper to seal the package, and at the same time have that length of tape ,carry preferably two sales tickets on which the meat cutter may indicate his assignment numher and the price of the meat within the package. The package thus sealed and having the sales tickets applied thereto is carried by the customer to the checker who tears off the two sales tickets, placing the tickets on file for later use, one ticket to the bookkeeper or auditor, and the other duplicate ticket back to the meat cuttor for his checking of business in his own department. The sales tickets referred to are united to the tape and folded thereover to be removed from the adhesive side. Preferably the tickets are attached to th tape along perforated lines.

The advantage of the invention is readily apparent in that the meat cutter is able to save a considerable amount of time as compared with the heretofore employed method of having a pad of separate tickets independent of the tape, wherein the meat cutter was obliged first to pull a length of tape out from the dispensing machine and apply it to the package, lay down the package, take the pad of tickets out of his pocket or lift it up from the counter, fill in the tickets, and then attach them to the package. In other words, over a. period of time, the meat cutter is able to give attention to more customers.

These and other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to those versed in tape ture, is formed in a strip and perforated along a line I longitudinally thereof, preferably along the center line. The area of the strip to one side of the line I0 is transversely divided by perforated lines ll, these lines ll defining therebetween a price-or sales ticket i2.

On the other side of the line ill, the entire area is coated with a suitable adhesive [3 of that character which will permit the strip to be rolled with the adhesive against a non-adhesive coated face of the strip to permit the unwinding of the strip from a roll. The composition of this adhesive does not enter into the invention per se but may be of any of the usual and well known-types, such as the adhesive commonly employed on sealing tapes requiring moisture, or the rubber or latex type requiring no moisture.

The stripabove defined is folded along the line in to carry the tickets l2 around against the uncoated side of the strip whereby the strip may be rolled into that form shown in Fig. 1 to have the adhesive side undermost and the ticket side uppermost when the end of the strip is pulled out from the roll. Such a roll may be employed in the usually tape dispensing machine (not shown) whereby the end is pulled out over a moistening roller and a cut oil device. In any event the end of the tape is pulled out from the roll and applied to the desired package with the adhesive face against the package to leave the sales tickets secured to that length of tape employed and presented on the top side of the tape.

The lengthof tape may be cut off in the susgested dispensing machine at the end of the second ticket l2, or the part of th tape which is coated with adhesive l3 may be transversely perforated from the line l0 along lines i4 continuin across from every second line I I, so that the tape may be easily severed along the correct line to leave the two tickets l2 available. Of course the invention is not limited to the precise number of tickets 12 since the number employed will vary with the system in operation in the particular store that may employ the invention. It may be desirable to use only one ticket l2 or even three or four on the same package and this would be determined by the length of tape used on the package and the number of perforated lines ll provided.

It is therefore to be seen that by so forming the tape as above indicated, the under side of the tape serves not only to seal the package but also to carry initially integrally therewith the desired sales ticket or tickets directly on the package, and the structure employed. is exceedingly simple in operation and relatively low in cost, all tending to a more economical and accurate system of the business.

While I have herein shown and described my invention in the one particular form, it is obvious that structural variations ma be employed without departing from the spirit oi the invention and I therefore do not desire to be limited to that precise form beyond the limitations as may be imposed by the following claims.

I claim:

1. Sealing packages and ticket holding means comprising a tape folded along a longitudinally extending line to have an under portion, the underside of which is coated with an adhesive, and to have an upper portion extending from said line in overlapping relation with said under portion, said upper portion having transverse severing lines defining tickets therebetween along said fold line, said fold line being perforated whereby the said ticket portions may be readily removed from the adhesive coated portion when that portion is applied to and secured on a package.

2. Sealing package and ticket holding means comprising a tape folded along a longitudinally extending line to have an under portion, the underside of which is coated with an adhesive, and to have an upper portion extending from said line in overlapping relation with said under portion, said upper-portion having transverse severing lines defining tickets therebetween along said fold line, said fold line being perforated whereby the said ticket portions may be readily removed from the adhesive coated portion when that portion is applied to and secured on a package, and severing lines extending laterally across said adhesive coated tape portion and in continuation with some at least of said ticket severing lines.

3. Sealing package and ticket holding means comprising a tape folded along a horizontally extending line to have an'under portion, the underside of which is coated with an adhesive, and to have an upper portion extending from said line in overlapping relation with said under portion, said upper portion having transverse severing lines defining tickets therebetween along said fold line, said fold line being perforated whereby the said ticket portions may be readily removed from the adhesive coated portion when that portion is applied to and secured on a package, said ticket severing lines consisting of rows of .perforations spaced to permit ready tearing of the tape therebetween, and a line of perforation extending transversely across said adhesive coated portion in continuation of every second said ticket line.
