TICKETING STRUCTURE AND PROCEDURE Filed 001;. 13, 1965 244i, x [5 F} G I w 2 INVENTOR. JOHN R. JAP-S' ATTORNEY United States Patent 3,350,799 TKCKETING STRUCTURE AND PROCEDURE John R. Japs, San Gabriel, Calili, assignor to Dillingham Ticket Company, Los Angeles, Calif., a corporation of California Filed Oct. 13, 1965, Ser. No. 495,500 6 Claims. (Cl. 40-2) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A ticket structure having an admission ticket with a separable backing sheet and including separable ticket and stub portions secured to the sheet by a pressuresensitive adhesive in such a way that the backing sheet retains the ticket portions in assembled relation for presentation of the ticket structure to gain initial admission to an event and the stub portion may then be separated from the ticket portion, removed from the sheet, and adhesively secured to the users person for subsequent identification during the event. A multiple ticket book having a number of separable pressuresensitive tickets having separable ticket and stub portions secured to the sheet.

This invention relates in general to admission tickets, and specifically to a combination of ticketing and identification.

The nuisance of keeping ticket stubs at public events is well known and understood. The ticket is generally an elongated paperboard material with the seating identification placed on a stub portion. The entire ticket serves as admission, and the stub thereafter is used to show ushers in an effort to obtain assistance in locating seating, and also to prove the right to be on the premises in the event there is a challenge.

When the ticket taker at the gate takes such a ticket, an indefinite tear is made to separate the two portions and the stub is handed back to the admittee. This stub is usually placed in a coat or trousers pocket and must be re-located and presented to various ushers on the Way toward the proper seating.

Also, whenever more than one person passes through the admission entrance gate, it is usual that one person will present the tickets and take all of the stubs. Thereafter, if one such person without a stub leaves the seating area and later attempts to return, that person is some times challenged and at other times becomes lost. It is then an embarrassment and a nuisance not to have available the stub pertaining to the seating area.

It is an object of this invention to provide a multiplepurpose admission tacket which serves as an admission ticket at the entrance to an area, and thereafter as a continuing identification as an authorized person on the premises.

It is a further object of this invention to provide in combination an admission ticket and identification badge.

It is a further object of the invention to provide a method whereby the proper admittee is identified continuously during the time when the person is in the area under proper authorization, both to make apparent those who are improperly on the premises and to assist the ushers in guiding the patrons toward their proper locations without the delay of the patrons searching for misplaced stubs.

In accordance with these and other objects which will become apparent hereinafter, the best mode contemplated for the present invention is disclosed in the accompanying drawing wherein:

FIGURE 1 is a schematic illustration of the manu- 3,359,799 Patented Nov. 7, 1967 facture of ticket base stock in accordance with the principles of this invention;

FIGURE 2 is a greatly-enlarged section taken along the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 is a plan view of a ticket made according to the principles of this invention;

FiGURE 4 is a book of tickets embodying some of the principles of this invention;

FIGURE 5 is a section taken along the line 5-5 of FIGURE 4 and greatly enlarged to show detail; and

FIGURE 6 is an illustration of the identification use of the ticket stub of this invention.

The illustrations in the drawing do not exhaust the type of ticketing that may embody one or more of the principles of the present invention, but will give adequate instructions for complete understanding and use of the principles of the invention.

In FIGURE 1, the schematic illustration teaches the construction of the base stock which may be employed for substantially all modifications. The paper stock is illustrated as being fed from a convenient roll ltl, as a continuous web 12.

The web 12 is then coated with a pressure-sensitive adhesive, leaving the strip areas 14, 14A and 14B uncoatcd. The area 14 is the extreme edge of web 12, but the others are internal.

This coating is done with equipment adapted to closely control the extent of the area to be coated. An application device is shown by the block outline 16. Thus, any suitable equipment, conventional or specially adapted, may fulfil this function.

The web emerges from device 16 with three distinct strips 18, 18A, and 18B of adhesive.

Thereafter, a covering web 20 of protective paper is laid down over the pressure-seusive material. Such protective paper is well known and is widely used as release paper to protect the coating on the pressure-sensitive labels.

The combination of the paper web 12 and the backing protective paper 20 with the three areas of adhesive material 18 produced by the separation efiected by the strip areas 14A and 14B, then proceeds to a cutting area where cutting devices, symbolized by knife blades 22, produce three separate webs 24, 24A, and 24B, which may then be transported to printing and converting equipment to transform the base stock in the form of tickets.

The location of the cutting devices 22 is such that an uncoated edge 26 is created on each strip by cutting along the edge of the strip areas 14A and 14B. This effect is created by the edge strip area 14. The uncoated area remains associated with each of the individual webs 24, 24A, and 2413. Thus, the one edge of each of the smaller composite webs has an unsecured edge of the backing material 20. The unsecured edge will tend to curl and make a natural finger-grip portion for removal of the protective coating 20. This condition is illustrated graphically in the FIGURE 2.

The strips 24, 24A, and 24B are then printed on the face of the Web 12 to indicate the various location data and other material needed on identification ticketing. Additionally, as the strips pass through the printing equipment, cutting equipment is placed to cause a perforation or a through slice at a distance from the edge of the strip and generally parallel thereto.

In the event pelforation is done, a more solid joining of stub to the entire ticket will be accomplished as suggested by FIGURE 2 and FIGURE 3. The perforation is suggested by the dotted lines 28. Note that this perforation is carefully controlled so that it does not penetrate the backing protective material 20. Thus, the resultant into a variety of useful products ticket is united as a composite structure by the protective paper, although the ticket per se is substantially divided or in the event of complete slicing, it will be completely divided. Nonetheless, the ticket remains as an operative whole until purposely divided.

An indication of the use of through cutting is shown in the FIGURES 4 and 5. It is desirable in some events to provide books of tickets, such for example as season tickets. In such event, the page is divided by slicing parallel to the length of the long strips 24, and slicing completely through as suggested by the through out 3il, shown in FIGURE 5. In such event, the unsecured edge 26 is not employed and the lines 14 are eliminated. Then, separation is accomplished by folding the sheet along the sliced edge 30, as suggested in FIGURE 5. When folding is accomplished to a sufficient degree, the sliced edge becomes available for facile gripping. Thus, this plurality of tickets remains as an operative unit, joined by the backing material 20, until it is desired that separation be completed.

The FIGURE 6 illustrates the exceptional convenience aspect of the new and improved combination of this invention. This figure illustrates the method of identification of public event patrons, which comprises generally the steps of providing an admission which has the separable parts, substantially as illustrated in FIGURE 3, at least one of which is adhesively securable to the garments of the patron. In the illustration of the drawing, the entire surface is coated with pressure sensitive material, but only the stub is bared free of the protective paper 20, and then severed from the balance of the ticket in order that the portion may be adhesive, but the ticket taker need not be inconvenienced with the entire ticket becoming tacky. Nevertheless, manufacturing is rapid and continuous.

The stub end is provided with identification of authorized occupancy for a particular event to match the balance of the ticket. Thus, when this ticket is issued to the patron, it serves as an admission ticket when it is presented in its entirely. The method of continual identification is then accomplished by separating the parts, as for example the uncovering of the back and the removal of the stub area adhesive material, as the patron enters the proper area, and then that stub is adhesively secured to the body or garment of the admitted patron.

By this means, all authorized patrons will be visually identifiable to ushers, and the ushers may direct the patrons to proper areas. Thus, unauthorized people are immediately detectable and the patron himself is spared the annoyance of keeping account of his ticket stub, or justifying his presence in the event of challenge.

While the instant invention has been shown and described herein in what is conceived to be the best mode contemplated, it is recognized that departures may be made therefrom within the scope of the invention which is, therefore, not to be limited to the details disclosed herein, but is to be afforded the full scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.

What is claimed is:

1. The method of making a multiple group of separate or separable pressure-sensitive labels, comprising essentially the following steps:

providing a continuous web of stock;

coating a surface of said web with pressure-sensitive adhesive material;

covering said pressure-sensitive material with a sheet of protective parting material to join said web and sheet; and

thereafter dividing only said web along a number of 4 transverse separation lines defining therebetween a number of separable labels which remain united by said protective parting material.

2. An admission ticket structure comprising:

a backing sheet,

an admission ticket overlying said sheet, including a ticket portion and a separable stub portion,

means securing said ticket portion to said sheet, and,

pressure-sensitive adhesive means on the under-surface of said stub portion releasably securing said stub portion to said sheet, whereby said backing sheet retains said ticket portions in assembled relation for presentation of said ticket structure to gain initial admission to an event, and said stub portion may then be separated from said ticket portion, removed from said sheet, and adhesively secured to the users person for subsequent identification during the event.

3. A ticket structure according to claim 2, wherein;

said stub portion has an adhesive-free edge portion to facilitate removal of said stub portion from said sheet.

4. A multiple admission ticket book comprising:

a number of separate pages mutually joined along one edge, and

each said page comprising a backing sheet, a number of separable admission tickets overlying each sheet in side-by-side relation and each including a ticket portion and a separable stub portion, means securing said ticket portions to said sheet, and pressuresensitive adhesive means on the undersurfaces of said stub portions releasably securing said stub portions to said sheet, whereby the several backing sheets of said book retain said tickets and the corresponding ticket and stub portions of each ticket in assembled relation for presentation of said book and successive removal of said tickets from said book to gain initial admission to successive events, and said stub portion of each removed ticket may be separated from its respective ticket portion, removed from its respective backing sheet, and adhesively secured to the users person for subsequent identification during the corresponding event.

5. The method according to claim 1, including the additional step of dividing said web only along a longitudinal separation line intersecting said transverse separation lines to divide each label into separable portions which remain united by said sheet.

6. The method according to claim 1, wherein:

said coating step involves coating said web surface with at least two longitudinal strips of said adhesive in such a way as to leave a narrow longitudinal adhesive-free strip area between said strips and a similar longitudinal adhesive-free area along one longitudinal edge of said web, and

said method comprises the further step of cutting said sheet and Web after joining thereof along said intervening strip area into two separate strip portions each containing a number of separable labels having adhesive-free edge portions which facilitate removal of the labels.
