Retroreflective article

Abstract  available in

  1. The ornamental design for a retroreflective article, as shown and described.

The retroreflective article can be applied to a variety of surfaces and materials that are desired to have a retroreflective appearance. The retroreflective article has a retroreflective top surface. The term “retroreflective article” refers to an article that reflects substantial quantities of incident light—which light otherwise would be reflected elsewhere—back towards the light source.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a retroreflective article, showing the new design.

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a rear elevational view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a left side elevational view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a right side elevational view thereof.

In the drawings, the broken lines at the ends of the retroreflective article indicate the boundaries of the claimed design, and the broken lines at its bottom indicate that a specific thickness forms no part of the claimed design. None of the broken lines form a part of the claimed design.

The shading shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 is provided only to illustrate that the top surface is retroreflective. It is not indicative of texture or other surface artifacts.
