Apliiicationnecemb 10,y 1941, serial'.,No....4222`7y claims. (c1. 229-4923) This invention relates to improvements in Inail-l ing cards, and more particularly to mailing cards bearing detachable decalcomania transfers.

l Y Objects. Among the principal objects which the present inventionrhas in'view are: to provide 'a mailing cardhaving on the one 'side the usual provision for postage andthe addressees name; toprovide a' mailing card, the side opposite to the addressee and postage, with means for securing a detachable decalcomania transfer at a part thereof,A with directions for detaching and for applying to a surface when detached, the other part of the lside of thexcard to be utilized for a message and identication of the sender; to be enabled' to use Various decalcomania transfer emblems, `medallions, and for advertising detachably secured to 'mailing cards at minimum cost; to provide a mailing card with ya protectivevcovering for. the

decalcomania transfer; to be enabled to remover the protective covering Without distorting or mutilating the transferunderneath on the vcard; toV

provide the protective covering with 4means whereby the ydecalcomariia transfer.z y.maybe easilyr identified; to' provide an yidentiication marking on the decalcomania-transfer tolbe in l registration with the means on the protectivev covering; to secure simplicityof construction and operation; and to obtain other advantagesand results as may be brought out in the following description. l'

' Drawing Figure ly is an elevation ofone side of a mailing card embodying my invention;

vFigure 2 isa vertical sectional view shown as taken on line 2-2 of Figure 1;

y Figure 3 is a fragmentary view` and similar to Figure ,1 and showing the transfer as ydetached from the card;

Figure' tlis a view similar to Figure 1 and show-r ing a slightly modified construction; Figure 5l is'a vertical sectional view shown as taken on line 5-5 of Figure 4; t,

Figure 6 is a longitudinal sectional view shown -as taken on line 6-6'of Figurefi;` and A Figure '7 is a vieW- similar to Figure 4 and ,showf ing a still further modiedyconstruction.

Description y Referring now more particularly to the drawing, the reference numeral I0 indicates a mailing card having the one sidev (not shown) with the usual provision for postage stamp, name designations, such as, the army, naval, fraternal organizations, business concerns for. advertising andso forth. The transferspreferably may be emblems which may' easily vand conveniently be detached from the card andy after its removal may be transferred to any article having asrnooth surface, such as, glass, Windshields of automobiles` porcelain, metal, wood, mirrors and any other article having a smooth surface, as a reminder of theparticular branch the sender may be, or advertising or'fraternalorganizations to .which the decalcomania emblem may be designated. this connection the transfer emblem I I may conveniently and preferably vbe on the card I0 on the side opposite to the address side and secured towards the one outer edge thereby allowing sufcient space for the' sender to print or Write in a message as well as to ll in the name of the sender as may be required.

Referring now more particularly to Figures l1 to 3 inclusive, therevis'shown -only the one side of the card, and for purposes ofthis description will be referred to as the emblem side I2. 'Said emblemside may conveniently be provided ywith approximatelyv two-thirds of the spa`ce`for 'Writing a message as indicated bythe printed Word Message I3 thereon towards the upper longitudinal edge of the card and having therebelow suflicient blank space for a writtenmessage by the sender, The other one-third'of the space to be conveniently utilized for the transfer 'emblemll and which preferably may be Vadjacent the outer edge `of the card on theemblem side I2.l In-addition may be provided adjacentthe bottom longitudinal edge'a printed designationv such as, Senden Outft, P. O. Yoriother printed matter dependent on lthe'wind of transfer emblem which may be on the card. t v u The present' invention is merely illustrative of one particular kind 'of decalcornania` transfer` emblem II,"which inthe presentinstance mayv be the emblem'or medallion 'of the 44th Division of the U. S. Army. Said'emblem Il may be convenientlyattached to thevemblem side I2 of` the card IIJ as by having its upper and 'lower marginal edges I4, i4 securely adhered by a suit- "able adhesive to the'card asy at I5, I5. Said to the blank space-'for av written message there marginal edges may be determined as being `directed outwardly towards the outer edges thereof by a line of perforations orindentations I6 extending laterally across the emblem from side to side. By virtue of said perforations or indentations the space between the outer edges of the transfer emblem and perforations will be adhered to the card and the space between the perforations or indentations facing each other will be the bodyfportion of the transfer emblem and since that portion is not adhered to the card it conveniently may be detached from the adhered marginal edges when desired. After the body portion has been detached from the marginal edges I4, I4 the emblem side I2 of the card may be provided with suitable printed matter I1, which in this instance may be the directions for transferring the emblem or medallion on the decalcomania to the surface of an article as heretofore described. These printed instructions preferablyrmay 4be printed on the card before the decalcomania is made a part thereof since thev printed matter is only exposed after` the transfer emblem has been detached. Also, it is to be noted that `only the adhered marginal edges I4, I4'remain secured to the card after the body portion has been detached as clearly shown in Figure 3. The card itself with the message thereon may be retained by the receiver as a remembrance of the sender,` especially should the sender of the lcard be a member of the armed service.

Though I have shown in Figures 1 to 3 inclusive a preferred construction of detachable decalcomania transfer II .as exposed and without any protection to possible mutilation lwhen in the mails, I do not necessarily limit myself to the exact construction shown or described. Accordingly, I have shown in Figures 4 to 6 inclusive a means for protecting the decalcomania transfer II. One such means may be in the form of a protective covering or flap I8 which in practice may conveniently be an integral vpart of the card I and as extending outwardly away from the normal edge thereof. Said extension may be provided with a crease line as extending from the top of the -card to the bottom and when in use may be foldedon thecreasev line in an inward direction to overlie the transfer emblem I'I. As in the preferred'showing, there may be provided a similar decalcomania transfer II, having marginal edges I4, I4 adhered along said edgesto the emblem side I2 as at I5, I5. The body portion of the transfer preferably may be free of adhesive since itis to be detached from the marginalV edges along the perforations' or indentations I6 when desired. The protective cover or flap I8 when foldedto overlieA the decalcomania transfer is made secure to thecard in any suitable manner,v

such as by being provided with a. dry adhesive along its outer edges at the top and bottom, and

when moisteningcthe adhesive the` cover will beiY made secure along the said edges to the card.

With the protective cover or flap-I8 adhered to protective cover or flap, I have found it convenient to place a designation at the outer corners at the top and bottom of the marginal edges I4, I4, which in this instance may be the numerals 44. Saidv numerals accordingly will identify the transfer as of the 44th Division. In order that the numerals may be exposed to View, the flap I8 overlying the transfer II conveniently may be provided with cut-out arcuate portions 20, 20 which preferably will appear directly over the numerals"44 on the decalcomania transfer. By virtue of the said cut-out portions 20, 20 the identification of the transfer will at all times be visible. Also it is' well within the scope of the present invention that the cut-out portions may function to Conveniently serve as the means for releasing the protective cover or flap I8 from its adhered position over the decalcomania transfer. Accordingly, and when desiring to remove the cover or flap, the cut-out portions may be gripped and with slight pulling pressure it may be lifted and mutilated along the, edges where adhered to the card without interfering with the decalcomania transfer. When the cover or flap has been removed as the protective cover over the decalcomania transfer, the transfer may then be easily detached` from the card as heretofore described.

In the showing of Figure 7 the construction in many respects is similar to that shown in Figures 4 to 6 inclusive, with the exception that the protective cover or flap I8 instead of completely overlying the transfer II as heretofore may have its one corner portion cut away on a diagonal line 2| thereby exposing the one corner of the decalcomania transfer II therebelow. The exposed corner of the transfer preferably may have as heretofore the marking 44 printed on the one marginal edge I4 between the perforation or indentation` I6 and the outer edg-e of said transfer. The said identication marking will clearly identify the particular decalcomania transfer which will not be exposed by virtue of the protective cover hiding vit from view. As' in Figures 4 and 5, the cover or flap I8 may be provided with a dry adhesive along its'upperand lower outer edges. As shown, the adhesive I9 extends only to the edgeof the cut-away portion and permits easy manipulation ofthe cover when de- `siringto remove the same from over the decalcomania transfer.

Obviously other detail changes and modif-loations may be made in the construction and use of my improved mailing card without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention, and I do not wish t o be understood as limiting myself to the exact construction or operation shown or described.

I claim:

1. A package comprising a basal member having a surface area,` a decalcomania transfer mounted on said area and detachable therefrom for transferring to a smooth surface, said decalcomania transfer having an identification in a corner thereof, and a protectivev covery overlying the said decalcomania transfer and leaving the identification at the corner of the decalcomania exposed. I

2. A package comprising a basal member having a surface area, a decalcomania transfer mounted on said area and detachable therefrom for transferring to a smooth surface, said decalcomania transfer havingv an identication in a corner thereof, a protective cover overlying the said decalcomania transfer, and said cover having a part thereof cut away whereby said identification may be exposed to, view while the cover protects the `rest of the said decalcornania transfer, said cover being secured to the surface area of the basal member at a part thereof beyond the decalcomania. y

3. A package comprisinga b-asal member having a surface area, and a ydecalcomania element, said element in its entirety 'overlying la, part of vsaid surfacerarea and said element having opposite end portions thereof secured to a part of said area at the face of the element next said area and having an intermediate portion between said end portions with the face of said intermediate portion next said `area loose Withy respect to said area subtended thereto, said intermediate portion being detachable from thev end portions and b'asal member for separate use. l

4. Anarticle of manufacture comprising a card having a surface` area,a flat element of less surface area than the surface area of 'said card, said element having a portion thereof 4juxtaposed and permanently attached flatwise on a part of said surface area of the card, and a utilizable portion Iiatwise of and in its entirety overlying a portion of said surface area and free of attachment at its face next the card, and means holding the said utilizable portion flatwise of the card, said holding means being separable from and thereby permitting detachment of said utilizable portion l of the element from the card for separate use.

holding means being separable from and thereby permitting detachment of said utilizable portion of the element from the card for separate use. LOUIS S. RITTER.
