Specification ofLetters Patent.
Application "filed May 26, 1920. Serial No. 384,272.
This invention relates to improvements in cards of samples oi fabrics, tissues, silk goods, wall papers, jewelry and the like.
In the actual sample cards, these samples are stuck or glued on a sheet of paper or cardboard. It results therefrom that the position of the said samples cannot be changed, although it might be interesting to bring certain of them together, for instance in order to compare them. On the other hand, if it is desired to leave some of them with a client, it is necessary to tear them oil the glue and the paper which remain adherent to these samples give them a very bad appearance; similarly the places previously occupied on the card by the samples torn oii are deteriorated and remain empty. For these reasons, a card from which certain samples have thus been taken off is completely spoiled.
This invention relates to an improved arrangement by means of which it is possible to displace, take off and replace at will the samples and to bring the same together, etc; this new arrangement has other numerous and very important advantages which will be indicated in detail hereafter.
A form of execution of the invention is illustrated, by way of example only, in the accompanying drawing in which:
Figure l is a front view of the new sample card.
Figs. 2 and 3 are two sections made according to lines AA anc B-B of Fig. 1.
Fig. i is a front view and Fig. 5 a side of a sample-carrier and Fig. 6 is a front view of such a carrier provided with the sample corresponding to the same.
As illustrated in the drawing, the samples a of fabrics, tissues, etc, are secured for mstance, by gluing them, on carriers or supports Z), Fig. 4-. T he latter are made of cardboard or of any material suficiently light and slightly elastic, such as sheets of celluloid for instance. The supports 7) are square or rectangular and provided with tongues c and cl arranged on the four sides.
The said supportsare adapted to be fitted 1n a card'e, Fig. 1.
This card is provided with openings 7 having a shape corresponding to that or the supports, the length and width of these openings are equal to those of the supports, without the tongues.
For replacing a support, it is slightly curved so as to cause two of the tongues to enter under the edges of the opening inthe' card, the two other tongues remaining above. The two longltudinal tongues may thus be engaged under the card, as shown in Fig.
l,the tongues (Z remaining above, or the contongues (Z engaged under the card, as shown in the left-hand lower openlng;
it will be understood that the placing in position and removal of each support can be effected instantaneously and with the great i in with a similar sample.
The sample support or carrier may bear on its rear face any desired indications, for instance indications concerning the price, sizes of the pieces and the like.
It will also be understood that on one and the same support may be attached two samples, one on each side; a sample will there fore appear on the front side of the card and the other on the reverse side by turning the said card without removing the support.
in the openings of the card may also be fitted two similar supports placed back to back and exactly similar to the support 5, the said supports each carrying a sample on the apparent side.
By means of these arrangements, the sample cards are less bulky and cumbersome than previously. 4
To the foregoing it, is necessary to add that the samples are presented in'a better manner than with the ordinary system for several reasons. In fact, they are correctly alined and positioned; this regularity in Patented Nor/.29, T921.
trary might be doneand the two transverse their relative position improves the appearance. On the other hand, the edges of the support constitute a decorative framing.
Finally, the manufacture of the cards is not so costly. For suitably gluing the samples according to the old method, it is necessary to take special precautions and this work must be done by workers who have good taste. On the contrary, with the new arrangement, the samples cut out beforehand to the dimension of the, supports can be glued on the latter by any workers; they are forcibly suitably arranged.
The following advantages must also be mentioned:
V l.Great facility for giving out this gluing work to out'workers, even to people having little experience, any person being able afterward to place the sample-carrying supports according to his taste.
2.T he supports carrying the samples can be easily sent in a simple letter by the firm to their traveler, without being compelled to forward an entire sample card, thus allowing to effect an economy in post- 3.-The same samplecardcan be used indefinitely, asit sufiices to change the movable supports, this permitting to realize an economy of the sample card as a whole, which card for this reason can be made of a richer design. r
The above arrangements are given only by way of example; the forms, dimensions, detail arrangements and materials used may be Varied according to circumstances without departing thereby from the scope of this invention.
Claim i A sample card, comprising a sheet provided with a plurality of rectangular openings, and a plurality of rectangular supports upon which samples are secured, said supports being provided with a tongue at each edge and of the same length as the edge, the tongues of two opposing edges lying on the inner face of the sheet and the tongues of the other two opposing edges lying on the outer face of the sheet.
The foregoing specification of my improvements in samplecards signed by me this 14th day of April, 1920.
