Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This application claims priority to U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/387,338, filed 26 Oct. 2010, which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety for all purposes.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Bags to be sold in pre-designed styles and colors. Consumers have been able to choose the style, color, and fashion of the bag, but have been constrained by the ideas and designs of the manufacturers.
  • What is needed is a bag that can be easily and inexpensively customized according to consumer's wishes, but can still be mass produced in large quantities.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The versatile bag, as described herein, provides the consumer with the ability to easily customize their mass-produced bag by virtue of a removable and optionally reversible art panel. This art panel may be removed by the consumer and decorated according to the consumer's desire and relatively inexpensively replaced as desired by the consumer, to allow the consumer to refresh the look of their bag, without having to replace the entire bag, thereby benefitting the consumer with an ability to update a bag rather than replace a bag. The decorating may be done by the consumer, by an after-market service, or a combination thereof.
  • The consumer may decorate the removable and optionally reversible art panel by easily removing the art panel and decorating the panel by hand by drawing, painting, marking, sewing, embroidering, silk-screen printing, pad printing, or a combination thereof.
  • The consumer may also decorate the panel by using an after-market service. For, example, the consumer may log onto a commercial website and select a template specific for their bag. With that template, the consumer may upload pictures or other designs, choose from existing designs, commission an artist to make a custom design, or a combination thereof. The consumer may decorate the removable and optionally reversible art panel at home using a machine, such as an ink jet printer, or print out a pattern. That pattern can be painted, sewn on, or embroidered by the consumer at home. The consumer may also commission the after-market service to customize their removable and optionally reversible art panel using a commercial machine. The commercial machine may use sewing, embroidering, silk-screen printing, halftone printing, letterpress printing, offset-printing, silk-screen printing, pad printing, thermal transfer printing, ink jetprinting, or a combination thereof to customize the removable and optionally reversible art panel. The bag can be sold with a panel or the panel can be bought online through the after-market service.
  • The versatile bag, as described herein, provides retailers the ability to sell bags that will appeal to a wider consumer audience of potential customers with a lower amount of inventory. Currently, retailers have to take the risk on picking and stocking inventory that they think the consumer will buy. Although this risk will always be present, the versatile bag, as described herein, allows the retailer to offer something for everyone.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The versatile bag, as described herein, provides the consumer with the ability to easily customize their mass-produced bag by virtue of a removable and optionally reversible art panel. This Art Panel may be removed by the consumer and decorated according to the consumer's desire and relatively inexpensively replaced as desired by the consumer, to allow the consumer to refresh the look of their bag, without having to replace the entire bag, thereby benefitting the consumer with an ability to update a bag rather than replace a bag. The decorating may be done by the consumer, by an after-market service, or a combination thereof.
  • The consumer may decorate the removable and optionally reversible art panel by easily removing the art panel and decorating the panel by hand by drawing, painting, marking, sewing, embroidering, silk-screen printing, pad printing, or a combination thereof.
  • The consumer may also decorate the panel by using an after-market service. For, example, the consumer may log onto a commercial website and select a template specific for their bag. With that template, the consumer may upload pictures or other designs, choose from existing designs, commission an artist to make a custom design, or a combination thereof. The consumer may decorate the removable and optionally reversible art panel at home using a machine, such as an ink jet printer, or print out a pattern. That pattern can be painted, sewn on, or embroidered by the consumer at home. The consumer may also commission the after-market service to customize their removable and optionally reversible art panel using a commercial machine. The commercial machine may use sewing, embroidering, silk-screen printing, halftone printing, letterpress printing, offset-printing, silk-screen printing, pad printing, thermal transfer printing, ink jetprinting, or a combination thereof to customize the removable and optionally reversible art panel. The bag can be sold with a panel or the panel can be bought online through the after-market service.
  • The versatile bag, as described herein, provides retailers the ability to sell bags that will appeal to a wider consumer audience of potential customers with a lower amount of inventory. Currently, retailers have to take the risk on picking and stocking inventory that they think the consumer will buy. Although this risk will always be present, the versatile bag, as described herein, allows the retailer to offer something for everyone by virtue of allowing the consumer to decorate the “blank slate” bag themselves.
  • The following detailed description includes references to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of the detailed description. The drawings show, by way of illustration, specific embodiments in which the invention may be practiced. These embodiments, which are also referred to herein as “examples,” are described in enough detail to enable those skilled in the art to practice the invention. The embodiments may be combined, other embodiments may be utilized, or structural, and logical changes may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. The following detailed description is, therefore, not to be taken in a limiting sense, and the scope of the present invention is defined by the appended claims and their equivalents.
  • Before the present invention is described in such detail, however, it is to be understood that this invention is not limited to particular variations set forth and may, of course, vary. Various changes may be made to the invention described and equivalents may be substituted without departing from the true spirit and scope of the invention. In addition, many modifications may be made to adapt a particular situation, material, composition of matter, process, process act(s) or step(s), to the objective(s), spirit or scope of the present invention. All such modifications are intended to be within the scope of the claims made herein.
  • Methods recited herein may be carried out in any order of the recited events which is logically possible, as well as the recited order of events. Furthermore, where a range of values is provided, it is understood that every intervening value, between the upper and lower limit of that range and any other stated or intervening value in that stated range is encompassed within the invention. Also, it is contemplated that any optional feature of the inventive variations described may be set forth and claimed independently, or in combination with any one or more of the features described herein.
  • The referenced items are provided solely for their disclosure prior to the filing date of the present application. Nothing herein is to be construed as an admission that the present invention is not entitled to antedate such material by virtue of prior invention.

  • FIG. 13 is a block diagram illustrating an exemplary method of decorating a bag having one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels. The method 1300 includes: providing a bag including: a bag having an inside and an outside; one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels; one or more devices for attaching the one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels to the outside of the bag; removing the one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels from the bag using the one or more devices; decorating the one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels; and releasably attaching the decorated one or more removable and optionally reversible art panels to the one or more devices on the outside of the bag.
  • An embodiment also advantageously includes a system and methods of forming an image on any of the removable panels, as disclosed herein. In one embodiment, the user may decorate the removable panels themselves, or utilize an imaging system operated by the manufacturer of the bag or by another commercial service. For example, the manufacturer can supply a means for obtaining, or creating the desired image. The means may include various methodologies of extracting and storing an image for further processing, which are well-known to those skilled in the art. The manufacturer can extract an existing photographic-type image from a computer memory or upload the physical embodiment of the image into a computer memory. For example, the manufacturer can extract the image from a database such as that associated with a web site, from the manufacturer's server, the retailer store's server, or a combination thereof. Typically, a digital camera can be used to acquire the image. The image can either be transferred directly to a manufacturer's server or to a database accessible by the manufacturer's computer, typically via a network system. A photographer can transmit a removable storage medium of the digital camera to the manufacturer, directly download the camera to the manufacturer's network interface, upload the images from a computer to a web site of the global network, or accomplish the task by any other equivalent method as known by those skilled in the art.
  • In another embodiment, a scanner can convert an embodiment of the image, for example, a developed photographic print, or a negative into an image scanned into a digital medium or memory so that the digitized image can be easily electronically transferred. For example, a flatbed scanner or wand can be used to scan an image or a developed photographic print of the target image, a negative scanner can be used to scan photographic negative strips. As an alternative methodology, a point-of-sale machine, as understood by those skilled in the art, can be used to access an image stored in the memory of a digital camera or other imaging device (scanner, personal digital assistant, hand-held computer), and perform a point-of-sale transaction for storing at least one of the images at a remote site accessible to the manufacturer's computer. Other alternative methodologies include non-electronic transfer to the manufacturer of an embodiment of the image to be positioned on the removable and optionally reversible art panel. Electronic means, however, are generally preferred due to cost efficiency where the image is to be a custom image or one made in the limited quantities. The non-electronic means, however, generally prove to be a suitable, cost effective method, especially where larger quantities of the same image on multiple removal art panels are considered.
  • The system for forming an image on a removable and optionally reversible art panel includes a method for forming the image on the outer surface of a removable and optionally reversible art panel. Generally, when referring to forming an image, one is referring to a method for transferring an embodiment of the image to the removable and optionally reversible art panel. The method for obtaining, or creating the image, however, is not entirely independent of the selected methods for forming the image. The method for obtaining, or creating, the image may vary depending on the methods selected for forming the image. The artisan has numerous methods available to formulate the image. The method selected significantly depends on whether the image will be mass-produced or printed on only a single removable and optionally reversible art panel or small number of removable and optionally reversible art panels.
  • Of the methods available to the artisan, halftone printing is one of the most common for color printing. In halftone printing, a multicolor image is photographed through halftone screens with color filters to reproduce the three primary colors, cyan, yellow and magenta, plus black. The halftone screens generally have a grid pattern of intersecting opaque lines impregnated on a clear substrate which leaves an array of clear dots. The screens break an image into evenly spaced dots that are larger in the dark areas of the image and smaller in the light areas. The screens vary in quality. The quality or fineness of the screens, measured in dots per inch, which are directly proportional to their cost and ease of use. A very coarse screen may provide as little as 25,000 dots per square inch but be very easy to make and use, whereas finer quality screens which are harder to make and use, commonly provide image sharpness and detail in excess of 90,000 dots per square inch.
  • Another method available to the artisan is the letterpress, known as relief printing. Relief printing uses metal type or engravings where the image areas are raised in relief above non-image areas. The ink is applied to the raised surfaces and transferred directly onto the item receiving the image, i.e., the removable and optionally reversible art panel. Similar or related methods include offset-printing, also known as lithography, gravure printing, and serigraphy, also known as silk-screen printing. Offset-printing uses a plate treated so that ink will adhere only to the areas that will print the design. The plate transfers its ink to a rubber cylinder which in turn offsets it onto the item receiving the image. In offset printing, color printing is achieved by photographically separating from the original picture, the four basic colors (black, magenta, yellow, and cyan), making a plate for each color, and then using the plates to print the colors successively over one another. In gravure printing, the image areas are instead recessed into the metal plate. In serigraphy, paint is applied to a fabric screen. The images formed by the paint penetrate areas not blocked by a stencil. Several stencils are used to produce a multicolored print. The process can be used for printing full-color images onto various types of objects. For comparative purposes, all these methods have the capability of printing to a resolution as high as the equivalent of 40,000 dots per square inch, or more.
  • Another method available to the artisan is a pad printer. Pad printing, also called “imprinting,” is a printing process which can be used for printing full-color images onto spherical, rounded, cylindrical and other non-flat surfaces. This method typically uses at least one flexible ink transfer pad that receives an ink image from at least one inked gravure plate. The transfer pad is placed into pressure contact with the surface of the item to receive the image. For comparative purposes, pad printing has been known to provide a quality equivalent to that of 10,000 dots per square inch, or more.
  • Another method available to the artisan for printing fill-color images is a thermal transfer printing device. Thermal transfer printing involves the transfer of an image on an object by heat and contact pressure using a device such as a thermal press. Thermal transfer printing using a thermal transfer press is essentially a two-step process. First, a transfer surface is made to hold the image. Second, the image on the transfer surface is transferred to a receiving surface, e.g., the removable and optionally reversible art panel. The transfer process includes transferring by holding the printed stencil in tight contact with the receiving surface while heat and pressure is applied. The heat and pressure is maintained for a sufficient time to allow completion of a sublimation process to occur which results in the image transfer. The typical thermal transfer press typically includes a heater block assembly with thermal conductive material attached to the transfer surface to heat the image. Thermal-wax-transfer printers and dye-sublimation printers provide another means of heat transfer printing. Thermal-wax-transfer printers and dye-sublimation printers use heat to transfer color pigment from a color ribbon. For comparative purposes, thermal transfer printing has been known to provide a quality equivalent to that of approximately 17,700 dots per square inch, or more.
  • Another method available to the artisan for printing fill-color images is ink jet printing. Inkjet printing provides non-impact means for producing images in response to digital signals by the deposition of ink droplets in a pixel-by-pixel manner to an image-recording substrate, for example, a removable and optionally reversible art panel. The typical ink-jet printing assembly includes a controller and associated wiring, a print head, and stepper motors to drive the print head. The controller receives the image from the medium, activates the stepper motors to position the print head, and controls the flow of ink, as will be understood by those skilled in the art, to form the image. The ink-jet printing assembly also includes a fabric stabilizer adapted to be connected to a removable and optionally reversible art panel. The fabric stabilizer stabilizes the removable and optionally reversible art panel to provide a substantially flat outer surface for printing. The print head can be positioned axially by means including: stepper motors across the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis in relation to a substrate receiving the image (e.g., the removable and optionally reversible art panel) in order to print on such substrate.
  • Ink jet printers typically dispense water or solvent based ink onto the substrate by heating the ink, causing it to shoot out of the nozzles. The ink dries by evaporation of the water or solvent. Some models provide additional heat to evaporate the water or solvent to dry the ink. For larger scale operations, ink-jet printing processes typically use mechanical ink propulsion techniques. Use of piezo or piezo-crystal print heads which convert electrical energy into intra-crystal vibrations that cause drops of ink to be ejected from print head nozzles, are but one means for implementing such mechanical ink propulsion. Water or solvent based inks may be used in various types of print head models. The type of print head selected typically depends on the level of usage. Some types of solvent based inks cure via air drying, some require external heat to enhance the evaporation process, others require heat to implement the polymerization of ink. The selection of solvent based inks is typically substrate dependent. Solvent based inks are typically matched with a particular substrate and form a chemical bond with the substrate to provide durability to the image. Unmatched pairs may not have an electrostatic bond and therefore typically may be easily removed by water, another solvent, or physical contact with the environment.
  • Ultraviolet curable or other polymer based inks are preferred over water or solvent based inks where color intensity is at issue. Polymer based inks typically use piezo or piezo-crystal print heads to apply ink that dries via polymerization affected after the ink is deposited on the substrate, e.g., the removable and optionally reversible art panel. Polymerization is accomplished by exposing a susceptible ink to some threshold level of energy. Some typical methodologies of polymerization include exposing ultraviolet curable ink to ultraviolet light after the ink is deposited on the substrate or exposing susceptible ink to a high-energy electron beam.
  • In the claims provided herein, the steps specified to be taken in a claimed method or process may be carried out in any order without departing from the principles of the invention, except when a temporal or operational sequence is explicitly defined by claim language. Recitation in a claim to the effect that first a step is performed then several other steps are performed shall be taken to mean that the first step is performed before any of the other steps, but the other steps may be performed in any sequence unless a sequence is further specified within the other steps. For example, claim elements that recite “first A, then B, C, and D, and lastly E” shall be construed to mean step A must be first, step E must be last, but steps B, C, and D may be carried out in any sequence between steps A and E and the process of that sequence will still fall within the four corners of the claim.
  • Furthermore, in the claims provided herein, specified steps may be carried out concurrently unless explicit claim language requires that they be carried out separately or as parts of different processing operations. For example, a claimed step of doing X and a claimed step of doing Y may be conducted simultaneously within a single operation, and the resulting process will be covered by the claim. Thus, a step of doing X, a step of doing Y, and a step of doing Z may be conducted simultaneously within a single process step, or in two separate process steps, or in three separate process steps, and that process will still fall within the four corners of a claim that recites those three steps.
  • Similarly, except as explicitly required by claim language, a single substance or component may meet more than a single functional requirement, provided that the single substance fulfills the more than one functional requirement as specified by claim language.
  • All patents, patent applications, publications, scientific articles, web sites, and other documents and materials referenced or mentioned herein are indicative of the levels of skill of those skilled in the art to which the invention pertains, and each such referenced document and material is hereby incorporated by reference to the same extent as if it had been incorporated by reference in its entirety individually or set forth herein in its entirety. Additionally, all claims in this application, and all priority applications, including: but not limited to original claims, are hereby incorporated in their entirety into, and form a part of, the written description of the invention.
