Description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates to business forms, and in particular to a manifold business form which provides a plurality of copies of completed form.

Because of the length and complexity of some business forms, it is sometimes impossible to provide a one-page form containing all the necessary printing and blank areas for completion. This results in such forms being printed in a two-page format. When the two pages of the form are on separate sheets, a standard carbon or carbonless image-transferring system can be used to create multiple copies of each completed page. Upon completion, the copies of each page are joined in sets to provide multiple copies of the original two-page completed document. This construction is cumbersome, and can result in incomplete sets of copies if one of the pages is somehow separated from the set.

Alternatively, the form can be printed so that the two pages are on opposite sides of a single sheet. In the past, one of the necessary steps in completing a form of this type has been to manually place carbon sheets between the sheets of the form to ensure that the images imprinted on the original pages are transferred to the copies. The manual placement of carbon sheets is a messy and awkward process, involving the possibility that the carbon sheets may be incorrectly placed. Such incorrect placement of carbon sheets can result in omission of some or all imprinted information from the copies.

Thus, there is a need for a manifold form assembly which allows use of a two-sided original form without the need for manual placement of carbon sheets when filling out the form.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In accordance with one aspect of the invention, an integral form assembly is provided with an original front page having at least one image-receiving area, and an original back page having at least one image-receiving area. The image-receiving areas on the front and back pages are disposed so as to be non-overlapping.

In accordance with anther aspect of the invention, a pressure sensitive image-transferring means is provided for transferring pressure-created images formed on the image-receiving areas. The image-transferring means is integral with the form assembly.

In accordance with yet another aspect of the invention, a duplicate front page and duplicate back page are provided. The duplicates pages have image-receiving areas corresponding to those on the original front and back pages, for receiving pressure-created images transferred by the image-transferring means.

In accordance with yet another aspect of the invention, a binder is provided for connecting the front and back pages, the image-transferring means, and the duplicates into an integral form assembly.

The present invention thus provides a manifold form assembly for providing a completed original front page and a completed original back page, and for providing a copy of each on the duplicate front page and duplicate back page, respectively. The front and back pages can be completed, and the copies made, without the need for manual placement of carbon papers.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

As shown in FIG. 1, a manifold form assembly 2 is provided with an original front page 4 on a first sheet 5 detachably connected to stub 6 along a perforation 8. Front page 4 is a business form having written or printed material thereon, shown at 10, 12. Front page 4 further has blank image-receiving areas 14, 16 to receive pressure-created images formed by writing or typing, for completing front page 4.

Referring to FIG. 3, an original back page 18 is provided on the other side of sheet 5. Original back page 18 has areas of written or printed material 20, 22, as well as blank image-receiving areas 24, 26. Back page image-receiving areas 24, 26 are non-overlapping with front page image-receiving areas 14, 16 on the opposite side of sheet 5.

A first carbon sheet 28 is provided directly behind and aligned with sheet 5. The side of carbon sheet 28 adjacent original back page 18 has no exposed carbon areas. As shown in FIG. 3, the other side of carbon sheet 28 is provided with selective pressure sensitive exposed carbon areas 34, 36 and blank areas, 38, 40. Exposed carbon areas 34, 36 encompass and correspond to image-receiving areas 14, 16 on original front page 4, to transfer pressure-created images formed on image-receiving areas 14, 16.

A duplicate front page 42 and a duplicate back page 56 are provided on opposite sides of a duplicate sheet 43, which is positioned behind and aligned with carbon sheet 28. Duplicate sheet 43 is detachably connected to a stub 44 along a perforation 46. Duplicate front page 42 has areas of written or printed material 48, 50, and image-receiving areas 52, 54, which correspond to written or printed areas 10, 12, and image-receiving areas 14, 16, respectively, on original front page 4. Likewise, duplicate back page 56 has areas of written or printed materials 58, 60, and image-receiving areas 62, 64, which correspond to written or printed areas 20, 22, and image-receiving areas 24, 26, respectively, on original back page 18.

A second carbon sheet 66 is provided immediately behind and aligned with duplicate sheet 43. The side of carbon sheet 66 adjacent duplicate sheet 43 is provided with exposed carbon areas 72, 74 and blank areas 76, 78. Exposed carbon areas 72, 74 are disposed on carbon sheet 66 so as to encompass and correspond to image-receiving areas 24, 26 on original back page 18, for transferring pressure-created images formed on image-receiving areas 24, 26. As shown in FIG. 3, the other side of carbon sheet 66 has exposed carbon areas 80, 82 and blank areas 84, 85. Exposed carbon areas 80, 82 encompass and correspond to image-receiving areas 14, 16 on original front page 4, for transferring pressure-created images formed on image-receiving areas 14, 16.

The final sheet in the manifold form assembly is a second duplicate sheet 89, containing a second duplicate front page 88 and a second duplicate back page 102. Duplicate sheet 89 is detachably connected to a stub 90 along a perforation 92. Second duplicate front page 88 has areas of written or printed material 94, 96, and image-receiving areas 98, 100 corresponding to written or printed areas 10, 12 and image-receiving areas 14, 16 on original front page 4. Likewise, second duplicate back page 102 has areas of written or printed material 104, 106, and image-receiving areas 108, 110, which correspond to written or printed areas 20, 22 and image-receiving areas 24, 26 on original back page 18.

Staples 112 or any connecting medium, such as glue, are provided to connect sheets 5, 43, and 89 together at their stubs, to form a composite stub detachably connected to the top edge of each sheet. Carbon sheets 28 and 66 are connected into the composite stub along their top edges by the stapes 112 or other connecting medium. The composite stub acts as a binder, to form an integral form assembly in which each sheet is securely fastened together. Sheets may be removed as desired by detaching the sheet from the assembly at its individual perforation.

As shown in FIGS. 1 and 4, sheet 5 is movable from a first position in which original front page 4 is exposed, to a second position in which original back page 18 is exposed. The first position is as shown in FIG. 1, where the phantom lines show how sheet 5 is moved to attain the second position. This movement is done manually by the user, after original front page 4 has been filled out. The user lifts sheet 5 and forms a fold at perforation 8, then folds the entire stub over at the perforation 32, 46, 70, and 92. This series of steps places sheet 5 in the second position, in which original back page 18 is exposed for completion, as shown in FIG. 4. When so positioned, original front page 4 is immediately adjacent duplicate back page 102. Sheet 5 is positioned so as to be aligned with each other sheet in both the first and second positions.

FIG. 5 shows manifold form assembly 2 with the sheet 5 in its first position, wherein front page 4 exposed for completion. As shown in FIG. 5, sheet 5 is a carbonless CB (Coated Back) sheet, meaning that one side is coated with a pressure sensitive carbonless dye 114, as is well known. In typical applications, a CB sheet is positioned so that the dye coating 114 is on the back of the sheet, for transferring images created on the front of the sheet. In form assembly 2, however, CB sheet 5 is placed in the assembly such that dye coating 114 is on the front of the sheet when sheet 5 is in the first position. When so positioned, as shown in FIG. 5, dye coating 114 faces upwardly, and image-receiving areas 14 and 16 receive images formed on original front page 4.

Second duplicate sheet 89 is a carbonless CF (Coated Front) sheet, meaning that one side is coated with a reactive, image receptive coating 116 to receive images transferred by a pressure sensitive carbonless dye coating, as is well known. When sheet 5 is in its second position, as shown in FIG. 6, the dye coating 114 of CB sheet 5 is placed immediately adjacent receptor coating 116 of CF sheet 89, thus forming a carbonless image-transferring system. Pressure-created images formed on original back page 18 cause dye coating 114 and receptor coating 116 to interact, to transfer pressure-created images formed on image-receiving areas 24, 26 of original back page 18 to image-receiving areas 108, 110 of duplicate back page 102.

It can thus be seen that a two-sided original is provided on sheet 5 by completing original front page 4 with sheet 5 in its first position, then moving sheet 5 to its second position and completing original back page 18. Pressure-created images are transferred from original sheet 5 to duplicate sheets 43 and 89 by carbon sheet 66 and 28, as well as by the carbonless image-transferring system formed by the interaction carbonless dye coating 114 and carbonless receptor coating 116. Copies of the original document of sheet 5 are thus provided on duplicate sheets 43 and 89.

It should be appreciated that the image-transferring function performed by carbon sheets 28 and 66 may also be performed by a carbonless image-transferring system. In such a system, sheets 5, 43, and 89 have selected areas of carbonless CB dye coating and of image receptive CF coating for transferring pressure-created images formed on the image-receiving areas. For example, to transfer images formed on image-receiving area 14 of sheet 5 to image-receiving area 52 of duplicate sheet 43, a CB coating is provided on the back of sheet 5 corresponding to image-receiving area 14 and a CF coating is provided on the front of sheet 43 corresponding to image-receiving area 14. Similarly, a CB coating is provided on the back of sheet 43 and a CF coating on the front of sheet 89, both corresponding to image-receiving area 14, to transfer such images to image-receiving area 98 of sheet 89. Such a carbonless system eliminates the need for carbon sheets 28 and 66.

It is also possible to eliminate some components of the form assembly so that it is unnecessary to move any of the sheets to complete the back page. To accomplish this end, the front and back pages to be completed by the user are on separate sheets. Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, the components eliminated in this arrangement are carbon sheet 28 and duplicate sheet 43. Thus, the necessary elements are first sheet 5, carbon sheet 66, and duplicate sheet 89. Carbon sheet 66 is provided immediately behind and aligned with sheet 5, and duplicate sheet 89 is behind and aligned with carbon sheet 66.

The user first complete original front page 4 of sheet 5 as above, by forming pressure-created images on image-receiving areas 14, 16 of front page 4. The images are transferred to image-receiving areas 98, 100 of duplicates sheet 89 by carbon areas 80, 82 of carbon sheet 66. Then, instead of flipping sheet 5 to expose back page 18 for completion, the user simply flips the entire form over, thus exposing duplicate back page 102 for completion. Duplicate back page 102, being adapted to receive original pressure-created images when so exposed for completion, then essentially becomes the original back page. The user then completes duplicate back page 102 by forming pressure-created images on image-receiving areas 108, 110 of back page 102. The images are transferred to image-receiving areas 24, 26 of original back page 18 by carbon areas 72, 74 of carbon sheet 66. In this manner original back page 18, being adapted to receive pressure-created images transferred by carbon sheet 66, then essentially becomes the duplicate back page.

The original pressure-created images are thus disposed on separate sheets, with the other side of each sheet carrying copies of the original images. This arrangement eliminates the need for providing a carbonless image-transferring system, but is useful primarily when a two-page single-sheet original is not required.

As noted above, the image-transferring function performed by carbon sheet 66 may be performed by a carbonless system. In such a system, sheets 5 and 89 are provided with selected areas of carbonless CB and CF coatings corresponding to the image-receiving areas for transferring pressure-created images formed thereon.

Various modes for carrying out the invention are contemplated as being within the scope of the following claims particularly pointing out and distinctly claiming the subject matter which is regarded as the invention.
