ENVELOPE ASSEMBLY Filed May 29, 1961 3 Sheets-Sheet 3 United States Patent 3,104,799 ENVELOPE ASSEMBLY Donald J. Steidinger, Clarendon Hills, Ill, assignor to Uarco, Incorporated, a corporation of Illinois Filed May 29, 1961, Ser. No. 113,314 18 Claims. (01. 229-69) This invention relates to envelope assemblies, and more particularly to continuous lfOIlIl stationery having superimposed plies incorporating stufied sealed envelopes.

The processing of oflice forms is becoming increasingly acute for many businesses. Continuous form stationery, such as manifold assemblies having a plurality of continuous, superimposed, printed plies of stationery are cornmercially available. Such manifold assemblies are fed through suitable office equipment, such as a typewriter or tabulating machine, for simultaneously imprinting all plies of a set of Eforrns. Personalized imprinting on the various plies, [for example, the recipients name and address, a due date and amount, and so forth, is usually imprinted in its entirety on a front master ply and is selectively imprinted on underlying plies by means such as spot carbon on rear faces of the plies, or separate sheets of spot carbon in the manifold assembly. Manifold assemblies usually have suitably positioned longitudinal and cross lines of weakening for dividing the assembly into sets of office forms in suitable bursting and deleaving machines.

Manufacture of continuous form stationery, its imprinting in ofiice equipment, deleaving and bursting, are a highly developed and commercialized field. However, subsequent operations such as stuffing envelopes with collected iorms, and sealing and stamping the em velopes remains a time-consuming and relatively inefficient operation.

- Particularly for matter being sent through the mails to the general public, the envelopes must be easy and simple to open for ready access to the material inserted in the envelope. Proper stufiing of envelopes is further complicated when a return envelope is to be enclosed, not only because of the increased material to be handled,

- imprinted within the envelopes. A related object is provision for simple and easy opening of the sealed envelope and removal or its contents.

A further object of the invention is to provision of a new and improved manifold assembly including sealed envelopes containing inserts, and means for imprinting the inserts concurrently with imprinting of the remainder of the manifiold assembly, the envelopes being generally rectangular and the inserts being maintained in accurate registration [for imprinting and being removable from the envelope upon opening only one edge portion of the envelope.

An important object of this invention is to provide a new and improved sealed envelope containing inserts to be imprinted while within the sealed envelopes. A

related object is provision for easy opening of the sealed envelopes and removal of the inserts.

Other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the following descrip- 3,104,799 Patented Sept. 2 4, 1963 tion of preferred embodiments illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

The present invention is, in brief, directed to contin-nous form stationery generally referred to as a manifold assembly, and to sealed envelopes thereof containing inserts to be imprinted While within the sealed envelopes as the manifold assembly passes through a suitbut also because of the possibility of damaging the return envelope upon opening the outer carrier envelope.

able office imprinting machine such as a typewriter or tabulating machine. One or more inserts may be included within each sealed envelope. For example, an inner envelope, such as a return envelope, may be enclosed. Other inserts, such as sheets might take the [form of premium notices, advertising, a bill, or an invoice, with or without a return envelope. The inserts are detachably held by the sealed envelope in proper registration with a from master record sheet or ply of the manifold assembly for selective, individualized imprinting concurrently with the master record ply. Standard indicia may be printed on the sealed envelope and one or more inserts along with printing of [the other plies during manufacture of the manifold assembly. After the manifold assembly has been individually imprinted in suitable oflioe equip- .ment the sealed envelopes and their inserts are burst and Referring to the drawings, FIGURE 1 shows a sealed V stuffed envelope assembly having sealed outer envelope 10 removed from a manifold assembly illustrated in FIGURE 2. Envelope 10 is generally rectangular and but this corner is actually sealed.

has a front 12 and a back 13 sealed along a strip coextensive with three of the peripheral edges, in any suit able manner as by a strip of adhesive 14. For purposes of clearer illustration, front 12 and back 13- are folded outwardly at the lower left-hand corner of the envelope, Insert material, in the present illustration a single sheet 15, is sealed within the envelope 10.

Inserts and sealed outer envelope fronts 12 and backs 13 are preferably printed with standard indicia 16 during manufacture of the manifold assemblyv 11. Such standard indicia is here shown as including a date box on the sheet 15, and a return address and printed stamp on the front 12 of the sealed outer envelope 10. Variable indicia, such as delivery address 17 on sealed envelope front 12 may or may not be imprinted on the insert, and date 18 may be selectively imprinted only on sheet 15. Such variable indicia may be imprinted in an office machine in any suitable manner simultaneously with, and responsive to, conventional imprinting of the variable indicia on a front master record ply 19 of the manifold assembly 11, as the assembly is threaded through an ofiice typewriter or tabulating machine. Suitable spot transfer material 19a, as the spot of carbon on the rear face of front 12 provides for selective imprinting. Pressure senstitive insert stock may be used, if desired.

The inserts are releasably maintained in proper registration with the front master record ply 19, and are freed from the sealed outer envelope by an attaching portion 21) of the inserts which are suitably secured, by an adhesive strip 21, between the sealed outer envelope front 12 and back 13. It should be noted that insert 15 is secured to the sealed outer envelope only along attaching portion 21) and that the remainder of the insert has marginal edges 24 spaced from the periphery of the sealed outer envelope 10 and from the adjacent adhesive strip 14. Attaching portion 20 forms part of a tear strip 22 which is delimited by a line of weakening 23, such as perforations, extending through the envelope front 12 and back 13 and insert 15, along one edge of the sealed envelope assembly. Adhesive strip 21 is spaced outwardly from tear line of weakening 23, and upon severing the tear strip 22 along tear line 23 to open the sealed outer envelope 10, insert is free of the envelope.

With particular reference to FIGURES 2 and 3, the manifold assembly includes a plurality of superimposed plies of continuous form stationery printed with standard indicia, as previously described. The plies are assembled with the printed indicia of the various plies maintained in proper registration by feed bands 27 on opposite sides of the plies. The feed bands are delimited by longitudinal lines of weakening 28 in the plies. In the illustrated embodiment feed bands 27 are perforated for cooperating with feed mechanism of the manufacturing apparatus as well as the office imprinting equipment. 27 of the various plies are suitably secured to each other as by adhesive 28a in the complete manifold assembly. The illustrated manifold assembly is further provided with a central longitudinal line of weakening 29 provid- Feed bands 7 ing two parallel rows across the continuous form. Cross lines of weakening 30 divide each row of forms into individual sets of forms, as sets 31 in the left-hand row. This row has a series of sealed outer envelope assemblies.

The plies forming the sealed outer envelope as well as its interior sheets may be made in any size desired. It is ordinarily preferred to make the envelope length in the direction of the continuous strip, the same length as the form length of the individual tickets.

In. the embodiment illustrated in FIGURES 1-4, the

ply of sheet 15 is die cut on three sides to form a U- shaped slot, as illustrated in FIGURE 4, and providing marginal edges 24. The strip of adhesive 14 secures sealed outer envelope front 12 directly to back 13 with insert sheet marginal edges 24 spaced inwardly from this strip. As previously discussed, tear line 23 includes lines of weakening in front 12, back 13 and insert 15 along one edge of the sealed outer envelope 10. The die cuts in the ply forming insert sheets 15 intersect the tear line in insert sheet 15, and adhesive 21 of the tear strip is spaced from this line of weakening, so that upon opening the envelope at the tear line the sheet 15 is entirely free of the envelope 10. As shown by the two bottom plies in FIGURE 3, the continuous form may include additional plies in a conventional manner.

The modification of FIGURE .5 is substantially the same as the foregoing, but insert sheet 35 is provided stuffed sealed envelopes.

4. with marginal edges formed by parallel cross slits 36 and longitudinal slit 36a forming a generally U-shaped slit spaced from the adjacent peripheral edges 11 of the assembly insert sheet 40 is provided with a plurality of spaced apart perforations 41 in a generally U-shaped series. After assembly the envelope front 12 and back 13, and sheet 40 are simultaneously perforated as by slits 42, thus connecting adjacent perforations 41 and defining insert marginal edge 43 which is again spaced from the adhesive 44 securing the adjacent peripheral edges of the envelope. As in the immediately preceding embodiment, the ply forming sheet 40 also is received and adhesively secured between envelope front 12 and back 13. Marginal edge 43 extends across tear line 23, as in the foregoing embodiments, so that upon opening sealed envelope 10 insert 40 is free of the envelope and may be easily removed.

As shown in FIGURE 7, a 43' may extend around the entire insert. The edge is formed by -a continuous line of perforations 41', and a. continuous line of slits 42, similar :to those in conjunction with FIGURE 6. The insert is maintained in proper registration for imprinting while within the sealed envelope by close spacing with the strip sealing the sealed outer envelope 10.

Referring now to FIGURE 8, the inserts within sealed outer envelope -10 include the previously described sheet 15, and also a rectangular return envelope 50. Return envelope 50 has 'a front 51 with :a dry adhesive coated tab 52 for sealing the envelope, and a back 53.

Three sides of the return innerenvelope are sealed in any suitable manner as by adhesive 54 between the front and back. Again, suitable spot transfer material 19a is ap' plied to the piles for selectively imprinting the various in serts along with imprinting of front master record ply 19. As previously'described, all inserts are maintained in proper registration within the sealed envelope and con-' nection thereto by the attaching portion 20 of the tear strip 22. The return envelope. insert is equally applicable to any of the other embodiments as will be obvious to one skilled in the art, and various combinations of inserts may be contained in sealed envelopes 10.

The various portions of the plies which are secured to each other by adhesive may equally well be secured by other suitable means well understood the art. Sealed envelopes 10 may be directly connected to each other in the manifold assembly, to form acontinuous series of velopes, comprising: superimposed plies including, a front master record ply and other plies defining fronts and backs of sealed envelopes and insert material within each sealed envelope, said sealed envelopes being delimited by lines of weakening in the plies for separating the sealed.

envelopes from the assembly; an attaching portion connecting a portion of the insert material in each sealed envelope with the sealed envelope and the remaining portion of said insert material having marginal edges free of the sealed envelope; feed bands on opposite sides of said continuous marginal edge Unattached envelope assemtakes of this type may be imprinted separately from 'a' plies for maintaining said plies properly registered and assembled and for feeding of said plies through equipment for imprinting the plies; spot carbon between said plies for selectively imprinting said sealed envelope and said insert material while within said sealed envelope responsive to imprinting said master record ply; and a substantially straight tear strip on each sealed envelope and including said attaching portion for opening the sealed envelope and freeing said insert material from the envelope.
