IDENTIFICATION OR LAUNDRY TAG Filed Oct. 24, 1923 INV NTOR.

Patented Apr. 7, 1925.

UNITED STATES wrLLIAi/r J. HUMPHREY, or CLEVELAND, onro.

IDENTIFICATION OR LAUNDRY TAG.

Application filed October 24, 1923.

siding at Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in,

Identification or Laundry Tags, of which the following is a specification.

This invent-ion is an identilication or laundry tag so constructed and bearing such indicia as to indicate to the operator the number of articles of laundry to be packaged together.

It is also an object to provide a tag bearing indicia identical to indicia placed upon a laundry slip so that an operator may posi tively determine the number of and the proper articles to be packaged together upon comparing the slip and tag.

A further object is to provide a of this character bearing a serial number and a character or characters thereabove, the characters and the last numeral of the serial number serving as a key to indicate the number of articles to be packaged together.

It is likewise an object to provide identification tags of this character arranged in sets'and the sets being adapted for use upon articles to be packaged together.

Other objects will be in part obvious and in part pointed out hereinafter.

In order that the invention and its mode.

of operation may be readily understood to persons skilled in the art, I have in the accompanying illustrative drawings, and in the following detailed description based thereon set out one possible embodiment'of the same.

In these drawings:

Fig. 1. is a perspective view of a portion of a strip of tags to be used where there is one article to a package.

Fig. 2. is a similar view showing the tags to be used where there are two articles to a package.

Fig. 8. is a similar view of tags to be used where three or more articles are packaged together.

Fig. -1. shows edge and bottom plan views of a tag attached to an article.

Fig. 5. is a perspective view showing the detail construction of a tag, and

Fig. 6. is a detail perspective view showing the connection between the tags.

While these tags might be used in ordi- Serial No. 670,504.

.nary laundrys. :Which handle the general run of washing, they are primarily designed for use in establishments specializing in laundering heavy articles, such as overalls and heavy shirts, etc. These articles are almost invariablysent to the laundry in bundles varying in number. Often there are one or two suits of over-alls to a bundle and other times'there are a great number bundled together. lVhen the time comes to package the proper suits together for delivery to a certain shop it is" difiicult to properly sort them with assurance'of the return to a shop or department of the same suits collected. Furthermorethe' work i11- volves the necessity .of considerably more labor than is required with the utilization of my tag.

Having more particular reference to the drawings throughout which similar characters of reference designate similar parts,

this improved tag may be stated broadly as comprising a body to be attached to an article and bearing markings whereby the worker'may quickly determinethe numberof articles constituting a completely assembled set for packaging together.

The usual laundry slips are employed.

this tag bearing a. serial number as indicated at 7, said number ending with an odd numeral. Above the serial number is placed a single character A,'B, or G, accordmg to how high the numbers have run. The odd numeral at the end of the serial number is the key by which the worker determines that there is only one one piece suit to be packaged and consequently does not need to make further search.

Where two one piece suits are to be placed together in a package for delivery to a shop or the like, tags as shown in Fig. 2 are used. These tags are arranged in identically marked pairs as shown in Figs. 2 "and 6. The serial number ends in an even numeral and together with a single characters aranged above it, indicates that two pieces are to go together.

Often there are three, four or even more ill one piece suits to go in a single package in which event the tags shown in Fig. 3 are used, these being arranged in sets. All tags in each set are identically marked, bearing a serial number ending in an even numeral and having a pair of letters or characters arranged above. The marking on the tags together with the same marking on the slip and a number on the slip indicating definitely the number of suits to go with the slips positively eliminates liability of incorrect assembly of suits for wrapping or packaging and saves unnecessary labor. In other words. where more than four pieces are to; be delivered to one party, a number of tags corresponding to the number of pieces is employed, each tag bearing identical indicia arranged on the principleof that embodied in the illustration in Figure, 3; Extra tags may-be made-up from blanks where the number-of plBGBSvOUtIlLUhher the number of tags in any particular. set.

In all. cases a laundry slip is included and.

bearsindiciaidentical to that on the tags, and in addition, information as to the number of pieces to be packaged together.

Ihrough examlnatlon of the shp, the worl er may determine whether there, are more than four pieces and at the same time note the serial number, etc, by which he can identify pieces to be arranged together. here four or a less number of pieces go together it is unnecessary to examine the slips to determine the number of pieces. This is not the case inthe usual system. The combination of characters and serial number shown 'in Figure 3 may mean three, four, or more garments, it being necessary for the packer to examine the usual shp 1n order to determine the exact number of pieces bearing special machine which accurately positions and secures the tags upon the garment.

Certain changes may be made in minor details of structure and arrangement. and such changes as may fallwithin the scope of the appended claims, I consider my invention.

I claim:

1. Means for identifying and designating the number of articles of clothing or the like to-be packaged together, said means compris in sets of tags arranged in strips, similar serial numbers and characters on each tagofa set, and different serial numbers-and characters on each set, the last numeral of the serial number and the character being the key to designate the articles.

2. Means for identifying and designating the number of articles of clothing or the like to bepackaged together, said means comprising sets of tags arranged in strips,

similarserial numbers and characters on each tag of a set, and different serial numbers and characters on each set, the last numeral of the serial number and the character being the key to designate the articles, and attaching spurs: for the tags.

3. Means for identifying and designating the number of articles of clothing or the like to be packaged together, said means compris ing sets of tags arranged in strips, a serial number and double character carried by each tag of a set and being identical throughout a particular set, the last numeral of the serial number being an even number and combinable with the double character as a key to designate the articles;

In testimony whereof, I affix my signature WILLIAM J. HUMPHREY.
