Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. In this embodiment, a case where the present invention is applied to a computer system will be described. However, the present invention is not limited to this and can be variously applied.
[0031]
FIG. 1 is an external configuration diagram of a packaging material device of the present invention. The packaging material printing apparatus 100 includes a central processing unit 101 that processes various types of information for printing the packaging material, an output device 102 that prints information processed by the central processing unit 101, and a central processing unit A network cable 103 used when referring to an external database, a display device 104 for checking an output layout, a keyboard 105, and a mouse 106 are provided.
[0032]
The central processing unit 101 receives inputs from the keyboard 105 and the mouse 106 and analyzes the input contents. Specifically, the user inputs the date of the anniversary, selects the type of flower to be presented, selects an article to be printed, and selects a packaging material. Although the details of these processes will be described later, the packaging material printing apparatus 100 is configured such that the display contents can be appropriately checked interactively on the display device 104. As the central processing unit 101, various computers including a personal computer can be used. Therefore, the central processing unit 101 can be said to be a computer device having an enhanced packaging material printing instruction function. By using a personal computer or the like, the packaging material printing apparatus 100 can be easily designed.
[0033]
In accordance with an output instruction from the central processing unit 101, the output device 102 prints a predetermined newspaper article on a predetermined date on a predetermined packaging material suitable for the type of flower to be given. Here, the predetermined date is a special “day” designated by the giver (gift source), such as a birthday of the recipient (gift destination), a wedding anniversary date, a date of receiving various awards, The date of opening of the store (opening date), the date of childbirth, and the like. In the present embodiment, a special occasion is assumed. However, depending on the mode of use, a date relating to condolences can be designated.
