CONTAINER WITH INDIVIDUAL INSCRIPTION Filed Feb. 25, 1949 INVENTOR. SAMUEL H. BORN Patented A1... 22, 1952 CONTAINER WITH INDIVIDUAL INSCRIPTION Samuel H. Born, Bethlehem, Pa.

Application February 23, 1949, Serial No. 77,779

2 Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a package for candy, stockings or other similar small articles which can be given as ifts.

More particularly, the invention relates to an improved package for candy, stockings or other similar articles which is provided with an area which may be inscribed with an appropriate marking by the purchaser prior to giving the package to the person for whom it was purchased, so that the inscription will form a groove or impressed effect in the said area.

Still further, while the package of the present invention is especially well adapted as a container for candy it may be used equally well as a package for stockings or other small articles which can appropriately be given as gifts.

Another object of the present invention proposes providing an area of the package with a piece of metal foil or other similar material arranged in a manner to be impressed with the aid of any blunt pointed stylus, pen, pencil or any other writing instrument, with an appropriate marking befitting the occasion on which the gift writing instruments, so that the marking will stand out more clearly.

It is the object of a modification of the present invention to form the metal foil or other similar material upon which the marking is to be impressed with appropriately located lines of perforations dividing off the center of the metal foil or other similar material so that the marking may be impressed within the divided off area to be torn from the remainder thereof and saved after the package has been emptied of its contents.

It is a still further object of the present invention to construct a novel package for candy, stockings or other similar small articles which is simple and durable and which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a packa e for P 2 I candy constructed in accordance with the present invention and as it appears when purchased.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the package as it appears after being impressed by the purchaser.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged partial longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 3--3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the package constructed in accordance with a modification of the present invention, prior to being impressed.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged partial longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 55 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a similar view to Fig. l, but showing a modified form of the invention.

The package for candy, stockings or other similar small articles, according to the first form of the invention shown in Figs. 1 to 3, includes a box l0 having a wall I l. The wall II is preferably the top wall of the cover of the box Ill. The wall I I, see Fig. 3, is comprised of abase of heavy cardboard [2 covered with an appropriately colored sheet of paper I3. A paddingl l of any known type is interposed between the base 12 and the sheet of paper l3. The top face of the sheet of paper I3 is imprinted with any desired indicia; such as the name of the maker of the enclosed chocolates or any other printed material. The entire box It! is enclosed within a sheet of'transparent material l5; such as cellophane.

Interposed between the sheet of paper I3 and the sheet of transparent material 15, there is a piece of material 16 which may be impressed by the purchaser or other person with an appropriate marking prior to giving the package to the person for whom it was purchased. The piece of material IB is preferably formed of a metallic foil and is secured in position by a layer of mucilage or other adhesive material I1; however, the piece of metallic material I6 may be formed of any material which can be suitably impressed by a blunt stylus, or the like, not shown.

In Fig. 1, the package is shown as it appears when purchased by the customer and in Fig. 2 the package is shown as it appears after being impressed with an appropriate Christmas greeting by the purchaser of the package. While the piece of metallic material IE is shown applied to a package having a padded wall, this is by way of illustration only, as the piece of metallic material IB may also be applied to a wall which is not padded. However, it has been found that if the wall to which the piece of metallic material I8 is applied is padded that the same may be more heavily impressed with the result that the marking stands out more clearly and can be more easily read.

, suitable means. 'theiinvention'is similar .to the previous forms. "While Ih'ave illustrated and described the pre In the modification of the invention shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the construction of the package I is similar to that shown in Figs. 1 to 3, except that the center area l6 of the piece of metallic material [6 is divided off by lines of perforations l8. It is this center area [6 of the piece of metallic material [6 which is to be impressed. 'I he edges of the piece of metallic material i6, outside of the perforations 18, are secured to the top face of the sheet of paper I3 by the mucilage or other adhesive material H leaving the center area l6 of the piece of metallic material I6 free of the sheet of paper l3.

With this construction, before or after the package has been emptied of its contents, the center area le of the piece of metallic material l6, having the impressed markingp may be ,sepa

- rated from the package along the lines of per forations [8 so that the marking maybe saved by the receiver of the package.

- -Inotherrespects this form of the invention is similar to the firstiform and like reference nurmerals-identiiylike parts in each of the several views.

On the drawing, the sheet of metallic material is shown applied to boxes for containing chocolates, butthis is'by way of illustration only, as

the present invention isequally well adapted to boxes for containing other small-gift articles and maybe applied to a wall of the box other than the top wall.

) InfFig. 6", a container H3" is shown "to be in the form of a box with a coverv on which a meta'llic material it" is held in position by any In other respects this form of derredembodiments of my invention, it is to'be understood that I do not limit myself to the pre- I, 'ciseiconstructions herein disclosed and the right, is reserved to all changes and-modifications com- ,ing'within the scope of the invention as defined the appended-claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim-as'nem-and desire to secure by-United 's-states Letters Patent is:

laAninscription panel fora package h a top wall, comprising .a padding covering the of perforations dividing off a center area of said piece of metal foil which is to be impressed with a message of greeting, and an adhesive securing the edge portions of said piece of metal foil outward of said lines of perforations to the adjacent face of said padding, whereby the message impressed center area can be separated from the remainder of the piece of impressible metal foil when .the package is .to be discarded.

2. Ari inscription panel for a package having a top wall, comprising a padding covering the outer face of the top Wall, a piece of impressible metal foil positioned on said padding so arranged and constructed that said padding provides a soft underlining for said piece of metal foil permitlting a. message to be impressed therein, lines of perforations dividing 01f a center area of said piece of metal-foil which is to be impressed with .a message of greeting, and an adhesive securing the edge portions of said piece of metal foil outward'ofr said lines of perforations to the adjacent face .ofsaid padding, whereby .the message impressed center area can be separated from the remainder of the piece of impressible metalfoil when the package is to be discarded, and a cover of .flexible nonimpressible transparent ,material enclosing the box and having a portion extended across the exposed face of said piece of impressible Inetal foil, so arranged and constructed that its normal position over said piece of impressible metal foil to protect the. impressed message.
