Patented Jul 19, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE HOWARD F. BARKER, OF BUFFALO, NEW YORK, ASSIGN OR TO REMINGTON BAND ING I OF BUFFALQ, NEW YORK INDEx nnvrcn Application filed February 13, 1931. Serial No. 515,595.

This invention relates to labels particul-aly adapted for use with 'guide or folder ta s.

The resent invention comprehends the 5 use of index bearing labels adapted to be folded over' and secnred to guides. The lals are supplied in sheets and are each provide'd with special contrasting portions which efine the space for insertion of index matter The labels Supplement the more diflicult and direct use of the tab as an indexreceiving member and the benefits attained are the ease and accuracy of typing when in sheet form and the uniformity of appearance 5 obtainable when folded and assembled with an index tab or the likewherein one of the colored portions cooperates to guide the folding o eration and to provide a color indicium for t e tab.

' o In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing a portion of a group of guides formed' in a file drawer, the 'tabs being provided 'with the labels of the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of a label strip, each of the labels being providedwith two colored bands. y

Fig. 3 shows a portion of a label strip, each label being provded with a single, central colored band.

ig. 5 .is a partial perspective view showing a guide and a tab thereon with the label of the present invention in process of enfoldment thereupon.

In the drawing, the numer-al 11 indicates a strip of flexible sheet-material, preferably paper, which is provided with a series of spaced parallel score lines 12, to provide a color contrasting with the color of the material of the sheet 11 and each label portion is lightly seored at 16, on a medial line of the 'central band 14. At one extremity of the Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of` 18 is individualized by the colored bands 14' and 15 and forms a definite section on each label for containing printed information. The labels are subsequently. separated from each other'by tearing the same apart on the perforated lines 12, and typewriter stub 17,

which maintains the strip n the typewriter when the last label is being typed, is also detac'hed from the same. The separated labels are each folded on its score line 16, the central color section 14 during this folding operation, clearly -indicating the location of the otherwise nearly invisible folding line. When a label is folded, the colored portions are on the exterior of the same and the central colored section is divided by the fold line and extends around the fold portion.

As shown in Fig. 5 the folded label is mountable upon a tab portion 19 of a guide or folder 20. These tabs 'are of well-known form and eXtend beyond the body of the guide and upon application of the label, the fold line thereof abuts the extremity of the tab and the colored portion 14 of the label extends around the free margin to characterize the same. The rear surface of the strip 11 is preferably gum'ned to provide means for securing the labels to the tabs.

A group of guides provided with the labels 13 are inserted in a file as shown in Fig. 1 wherein the top margins' of the tabs are clearly individualzed from other groups of tabs by the central portion 14 on the label. This colored portion on the tab is visible from all angles when the file is viewed from above and it becomes a relatively simple matter to locate a certain group of guides solely by the color indication, whereupon a special guide may be located by referring to the typewrtten matter which indexes the guides.

As shown in Fig. 3 the labels in each strip may be provided with only the central indicatng band 14'. These labels are for use with general or miscellaneous guides where- I 1,see,ss

in an excessive amount of indicia is not necessary and where a printed word or character as at is a suflicient gde for typewriting. The band 14' is prefera ly formed of a series of arallel' lines.

t is not intended that the invention be limited to the specific adaptation of the label to index' tabs as above described as it willbe r obvious that the labels may be of heavier ma-- terial and may be substituted for the tab by being secured directly to the body of a guide or the like.

What is claimed is:

1. As an article of manufacture, astrip of sheet material formed to provide a pluralit of detachable label portions, means on eac portion defining a fold line, and means defining an index-receiving portion, and a stub section at one extremity of the strip and detachable from the adjacent label portion.

2. As an article of manufacture, a strip of sheet material perforated to provide 'a plurality of detachable label portions,` each of the label portions having a printed section extending across the central portion between the perforated margins thereof, said printed section defining a. fold line on the label portion, and a second printed section spaced from the first-named rinted section and adjacent one of the per orated margins.

3. In combination with a guide member having an index tab extending therefrom, a

rectangular label of sheet material having a v prnted section extending thereacross, and a second printed section spaced from the first section, both of said sections cooperatng to 'define an index-receiving portion therebe'- tween, said label being folded across the central portion and'mounted to straddle the tab, e

and Secured thereto, said first-named printed section definng the line of fold and extending around the top margin of the tab.

4. An index tab for attachment to folders,

and the like, comprising a bod of sheet material designed for having in exing indica 4 placed thereon before tab formation, said body being foldable to provide front and rear tab faces and having a grouping color notai tion on opposite sides of the line of fold to expose the same to view on opposite sides of the tab when the body isfolded, said color notation serving to delineate the line of told,

and means on the front-forming face of the body for`designating a space for the reception of the indexing indicia' in substantial' parallelism with the line of fold.

. HOWARD F. BARKER.
