Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • Not Applicable
  • STATEMENT RE: FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH/DEVELOPMENT
  • Not Applicable
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates generally to product packaging and more specifically to product packaging with removable decals incorporated as part of the product packaging.
  • Product packaging typically contains artwork, such as pictures of the product, logos, etc. Such artwork typically is colored and is costly to manufacture. Once the packaging is opened, the package and therefore the artwork is typically discarded. Thus, the consumer pays more for the product due to the packaging which is typically discarded once the product is removed from the package. Although expensive to manufacture, such artwork on packaging is desirable as it is used to attract consumers as well as provide easy product recognition and identification.
  • Based on the above, there is a need for product packaging that includes graphics (artwork) where the cost of such graphics is not wasted due to the temporary nature of such packaging.
  • Many consumers collect various decals which may be associated with a particular company and/or product. For example, consumers may purchase stickers that have a logo for a band, a cartoon character, a sports figure, etc. Such stickers may be sold separately or may be included in a package along with a purchased product. For example, a children's action figure may have stickers depicting the action figure included in the package or a compact disc (CD) may have stickers relating to a band (e.g., band name or photos) included in the packaging of the band's CD. A packager must ensure that any and all appropriate decals are included in a given package. Such a process is typically done by hand and is therefore time consuming and therefore relatively expensive.
  • Based on the above, there is also a need for a cost-efficient method of ensuring that appropriate decals are included along with a particular product.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • A package 10 and method of manufacturing the package 10 are disclosed herein. The package 10 incorporates decals 12A, 12B, 12C into the finished package. This reduces printing and paper costs, eliminates labor costs associated with packaging decals in a package along with another product and also ensures that every customer receives decals with every shipment.
  • The package 10 includes artwork (decals) 12A, 12B, 12C and therefore has a similar appearance as typical product packaging. However, the artwork (decals) 12A, 12B, 12C on the package are removable decals. Thus, the consumer can remove the decals 12A, 12B, 12C from the package 10 and adhere the decals 12A, 12B, 12C to an object, such as, a wall, a vehicle bumper, a notebook, etc. Thus, if the consumer discards the product packaging, the expense of the artwork for the product packaging is not wasted as the consumer can reuse the artwork (decals).
  • Referring now to the drawings wherein the showings are for purposes of illustrating preferred embodiments of the present invention only, and not for purposes of limiting the same, FIG. 1 shows a top or front 14 of a package 10. The package 10 has an outer surface that includes removable decals 12A, 12B, 12C. FIG. 2 shows a bottom or back 16 of the package 10 which is opposite the top or front 14 of the package 10 shown in FIG. 1.
  • In exemplary embodiments, the outer surface of the package 10 includes areas having decals 12A, 12B, 12C as well as areas of the package that do not include decals 20. As discussed further below, in exemplary embodiments, a conventional sticker/decal material is affixed over the entire outer surface of an inner package material. The conventional sticker/decal material includes a backing and a sticker portion releasably adhered to the backing. The sticker portion is typically a glossy vinyl material. However, it will be appreciated that the sticker portion may be a matte material.
  • As best seen in FIGS. 3, 3A and 4, the package 10 includes three layers. The first (inner) layer 28 is made of conventional package material which may be a paper-based material (e.g., heavy cardstock or cardboard) or a plastic-based material. This first (inner) layer 28 has an inner surface 30 and an outer surface 32. The inner surface forms the inside of the package.
  • The inner layer 28 has two layers adhered to it. These two layers comprise removable, self-adhesive, die cut decals that are built into the outer printed surface of the product packaging. These two layers are: (1) a liner layer 18; and (2) an outer layer 29. In exemplary embodiments, the liner layer 18 is a paper-based or plastic-based removable liner material that is adhered over the entire surface of the first (inner) layer of the package. The liner layer 18 has an inner surface 34 and an outer surface 36. The inner surface 34 of the liner layer is adhered to the outer surface 32 of the inner layer. The liner layer 18 may be adhered to the inner layer 28 using any known or future means conventionally used for such a purpose, for example, the liner layer my be glued to the inner layer.
  • In exemplary embodiments, the outer layer 29 is a vinyl based printed decal material which may have a glossy or a matte finish. The outer layer has an inner surface 38 and an outer surface 40. The inner surface 38 of the outer layer is adhered to the outer surface 36 of the liner layer. The outer surface 36 of the liner layer is a releasable liner material. The outer layer 29 includes decals 12A, 12B, 12C which can be removed from the releasable liner outer surface of the liner layer 36.
  • In exemplary embodiments, the decals (stickers) 12A, 12B, 12C are formed by kiss cutting the perimeter of the decal. The kiss-cutting can be done using any conventional technique currently known or developed in the future. For example, the kiss-cutting may be done using laser kiss cutting which is a process in which the top layer of a material can be cut without cutting through an attached material. Sticker labels are an example of a product that is kiss cut. The outline of the label can be cut without cutting the release (back) base material.
  • In exemplary embodiments, such as shown in the figures, the packaging is constructed from a single sheet (of the two layers). After the decals are cut, the packaging is folded and/or sealed, e.g., using glue, to create the package. In the example shown, the single sheet has all of the layers including the layer with the decals 12A, 12B, 12C cut into the desired shape. The sheet is then folded resulting in the package shown in FIGS. 1 and 2. The embodiment shown in FIG. 5 creates a substantially flat package having an opening 26 at one end. One side of the package includes a flap 22 which fits into a slot 24 on the opposing side of the package. In order to close the package, the flap 22 is folded along a pre-folded edge and inserted into the slot 24. The flap 22 is removed from the slot 24 in order to open the package so that contents can be placed into and removed from the package. In the embodiment shown, the sheet shown in FIG. 5 is folded along a center segment 30. Side flap 32 and ed flap 34 are folded so that they are tucked inside the package. The side flap 32 and end flap 34 are secured, e.g., using glue.
  • In other embodiments, the two-layer decal material can be mounted to a thicker and/or stiffer substrate to produce a more rugged package or box.
  • In order to construct a single-sheet package 10 such as the one shown in the figures, the inner material (such as cardboard) is cut to the desired shape, such as the one shown in FIG. 5. The releasable liner layer is adhered to the outer surface of the inner material, e.g., using glue or some other type of adhesive. The outer vinyl layer is adhered to the releasable liner layer. The outer vinyl layer includes graphics. Some or all of the graphics are kiss cut so that the decals can be removed from the release liner. If applicable, the package is folded, e.g., to form the package shown in FIGS. 1 and 2. The folded package is then sealed where the open edges meet, e.g., by using glue or some other conventional technique now known or developed in the future. The package 10 shown in the figures is relatively flat and has a flap 22 for closing the package. After the package is formed as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the product is placed in the envelope-like package 10. The package is then closed by folding the flap the package proximate the flap 22 (e.g., along line 23) and inserting the flap 22 into a slot 24.
  • In exemplary embodiments, the package 10 is covered with a protective material, such as a clear shrink wrap material. Such a protective coating prevents the removable stickers from being damaged or removed prior to purchase by a consumer.
  • Additional modifications and improvements of the present invention may also be apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art. Thus, the particular combination of parts described and illustrated herein is intended to represent only a certain embodiment of the present invention, and is not intended to serve as a limitation of alternative devices within the spirit and scope of the invention.
