Description (OCR text may contain errors)
32 is overfolded on line 35 as the first step in forming a superposed pack. I call the transfer area'54 the fifth transfer area because it transfers information onto a fifth printed panel to be described hereinafter.
The interleaf printed sheet 42 is equal in dimensions with the printed application blank 22 and includes the fifth printed panel 57 in the upper section of'the front face 58 thereof for receiving the basic information of printed panel 24. Sheet 42 also includes the lower section 59 with the printed material of the lower section 26 of sheet 22 so that a separate transfersheet, or carbon, is unnecessary to create a duplicate of the application blank'22. An L-shaped figure is shown on the additional, or fifth printed panel 57, which is right side up and identical with the L-shaped figures shown on panels 24 and 31, to illustrate the position of the printing thereon. a
The subsidiary transfer sheet 43, is equal in dimensions with application blank 22, and interleaf printed sheet 42 and is provided with a transfer area 61 in the upper section of the rear face 62 thereof. I call transfer area 61, the third transfer area because it transfers information onto the third printed panel 31 when the form is roll folded into a superposed pack. As shown in FIG. 3, in operation the application sheet 20 may be overlaid on the unitary transfer assembly 40 with the upper edge 65 in registration with the line of weakness 35, which brings the perforated line 45 of sheet 42 in registration with perforated line 64 of sheet 20 and brings the common tab 44 below the line 64 in a zone in which there is no blank space on panel 23 for typewritten information. The composite form is then roll folded on the lines of weakness 33, 34 and 35 of the sheet 20 and the corresponding transverse perforated lines 66 and 67 of the main transfer sheet 41, commencing with the overfolding of panel 32 on line 35. As shown in FIG. 4, the printed panels 36, 31', 32 and 57 and the corresponding panels of the main and subsidiary transfer sheets, are thus formed into a pack with a transfer area 48, 53, 54 and 61 overlying each printed panel whereby basic information typed on the first or outside panel, 24,
an elongated printed sheet free of transfer areas, said sheet having a first printed panel in the lower portion thereof and second, third and fourth printed panels in the upper portion thereof, said printed panels being joined by transverse lines of Weakness and said second and fourth printed panels being inverted on the rear face of said sheet; and a unitary transfer assembly, said assembly including a main elongated transfer sheet underlying said first, second and third printed panels and having a second transfer area on the front face thereof in engagement with said inverted second printed panel and having first and third transfer areas on the rear face thereof opposite said first and third printed panels; an interleaf printed sheet free of transfer areas, said interleaf sheet having a fifth printed panel on the front face thereof underlying the first transfer area of said main transfer sheet, and a subsidiary transfer sheet underlying V duplicating information typed on said first printed panel is automatically reproduced on the other printed panels of the pack. While the composite form'is still in the typewriter the typist can continue to type additional information on the section 26 of blank 22 which will be reproduced on the corresponding section 59 of interleaf sheet 42. The Registration certificate 23, contains printed material and blank spaces which differ from the material on panel 24 and, therefore, it is typed as the final operation on the application sheet 26 with no copies being required or desirable. The interleaf printed sheet 42 may be snapped out from between the transfer sheets 4-1 and 43 by grasping the upper edge 64 thereof with one hand andthe tab 44 with the other hand and separating the sheet 42 on the perforated line 45. Thus the hands of the typist at no time contact the transfer areas, or carbonized ink areas, of the transfer sheets. I It should be noted that the record, or printed, application sheet 20, and the record, or printed, interleaf sheet 42, are entirely free of transfer material, such as carbon ink, so that there is no tendency toward smudging after these sheets are typed and in use. All of the transfer material, or carbon ink areas, are on the main transfer sheet 41, and on the subsidiary transfer sheet 43, which sheets may be discarded upon being detached or snapped out of the assembly, along perforated line 45, as explained above.
Another manner of using the device of the invention is to lay the sheet 20 on a fiat surface, rear face up, fold panel 32 on line 35, lay the assembly) on sheet 26 front face up so that transfer area 53 is inserted under overfolded panel 32, fold panel 32 on itself twice and the set is ready for typing.
1. A vehicle registration application form comprising and said interleaf sheet being free of connection to said elongated printed sheet, but connected to said assembly along a perforated line whereby said interleaf sheet may be snapped out of said assembly without contact with said transfer areas.
2. In a blank form, the combination of an elongated printed sheet free of transfer areas, said sheet having at least four printed panels joined'by transverse lines of weakness, said panels alternating on the front and rear faces of said sheet and being alternately iightside up andupside down and a unitary transfer assembly, said assembly comprising a main, elongated, detachable transfer sheet having transfer areas alternating on the front and rear faces thereof; a printed interleaf sheet free of transfer areas, said interleaf sheet having an additional printed panel ontne front face thereof; a subsidiary, short, detachable transfer sheet having an additional transfer area on the rear face thereof, and means on said assembly for removing said interleaf sheet without contact with the transfer areas on said transfer sheets, said transfer assembly being adapted, when said form is roll folded into a pack on said transverse lines, to reproduce informationtyped on the outside panel onto all of said other panels.
3. A blank form as specified in claim 2 wherein said main transfer sheet, said printed interleaf sheet and said subsidiary transfer sheet are secured to each other along one narrow edge to form a common tab and said interleaf is connected to' said tab along a perforated line whereby said interleaf sheet and said transfer sheets can be snapped apart from each other.
' 4. In a blank form, the combination of an elongated, printed sheet free of transfer areas, said sheet having a series of printed panels joined by transverse lines of weakness, the panels on the rear face thereof being upside down and longitudinally staggeredrelative to the adjacent panels on-the front face thereof whereby said panels are foldable into superposed pack form to produce an original and a plurality of copies in a typewriter; a unitary transfer assembly comprising a main detachable transfer sheet having a series of transfer areas, each equal in dimensions to one of said printed panels, said transfer areas being longitudinally staggered on the front and rear faces of said main transfer sheet; an interleaf sheet, free of connection to said printed sheet and free of transfer areas, said interleaf sheet having a printed panel on the front face thereof, similar to said series of panels; a
subsidiary, detachable transfer sheet having a transfer ing said transfer areas, said transfer assembly being operable to locate one said transfer area on each said printed panel, when said form is roll folded into a superposed pack for typing.
5. A combination as specified in claim 4 wherein said main transfer sheet includes lines of Weakness between said transfer areas and the sheets of said transfer assembly are connected at one end only by a common tab, with said interleaf sheet separable from the remainder of said assembly, along a perforated line.
