DISPLAY Filed Dec. 18, 1967 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR. JOHN W. LACE Y ATTY'S United States Patent 0 3,411,228 DISPLAY John W. Lacey, Winnetka, 111., assignor to Pre-Vue Display Services Inc, Chicago, Ill., a corporation of Illinois Filed Dec. 18, 1967, Ser. No. 691,539 10 Claims. (Cl. 40-1241) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE An article of manufacture which is cut from a blank of suitable flat sheet material such as, for example, paperboard or plastic, in the form of a number of sections having shapes such as rings, ellipses, ovals, squares, rectangles or other regular or irregular shapes, which allow for hinge pivot points at right angles. These sections are internally affixed together by means of the hinge pivot points, so as to be concentrically arranged with respect to one another, and foldable to lie in planes perpendicularly disposed with respect to one another. The articles are precut, pre-folded, and can have a string affixed to them so that they can be shipped and/ or stored flat, and thereafter easily and quickly erected simply by grasping the string between two fingers and permitting the article to free-fall. The articles can be of a relatively large size, and can be attractively colored for use as a decorative ornament, or as a decorative, eye-catching display, with advertising material printed or otherwise provided on them. The articles also can be smaller in size, for use as novel advertising mailing pieces, or as greeting cards.

This invention relates to an article of manufacture having a unique, eye-catching construction which is of such a nature that the article can be used as a novel greeting card, an advertising mailing piece, and as a decorative ornament or an attractive, decorative, eye-catching advertising display which can be supported suspended, like a mobile.

Numerous advertising displays are available, however, those which are attractive, decorative and eye-catching so as to attract considerable attention usually are relatively complex and, accordingly expensive. Also, these displays generally require considerable time to assemble them and, furthermore, are designed for a particular application and are not easily or readily adaptable to other applications. Accordingly, a continuing effort constantly is being made to develop new displays which are simple in design, inexpensive, easily and readily adaptable to numerous applications, and easily and quickly assembled. A similar effort is being made to develop new types of advertising mailing pieces and/or greeting cards which can be fabricated relatively inexpensively, and which are unusual so that they attract considerable attention.

It is an object of the present invention to provide an article of manufacture having a unique, eye-catching construction which is of such a nature that the article can be used as a novel greeting card, an advertising mailing piece, and as a decorative ornament or advertising display which can be supported suspended like a mobile.

Another object is to provide an article of manufacture of the above type which can be easily fabricated, inexpensively.

Still another object is to provide an article of manufacture of the above type which is easily shipped and/or stored.

Still another object is to provide articles of the above type which are easily and quickly erected simply by, for example, pulling a string.

A still further object is to provide improved articles of the above type which are easily adapted to numerous different applications.

3,411,228 Patented Nov. 19, 1968 Other objects of the invention will in part be obvious and will in part appear Lhereinafter.

The invention accordingly comprises an article of manufacture which is cut from a blank of suitable flat sheet material such as, for example, paperboard or plastic, in the form of a number of sections having shapes such as rings, ellipses, ovals, squares, rectangles or other regular or irregular shapes, which allow for hinge pivot points at right angles. These sections are integrally afiixed together by means of the hinge pivot points, so as to be concentrically arranged With respect to one another, and foldable to lie in planes perpendicularly disposed with respect to one another. The articles are pre-c-ut, pre-folded, and can have a string afiixed to them so that they can be shipped and/or stored fiat, and thereafter easily and quickly erected simply by grasping the string between two fingers and permitting the article to free-fall. The articles can be of a relatively large size, and can be attractively colored for use as a decorative ornament, or as a decorative, eye-catching display, with advertising material printed or otherwise provide-d on them. The articles also can be smaller in size, for use as novel advertising mailing pieces, or as greeting cards.

The invention accordingly comprises an article of manufacture possessing the features, properties, and the relation of elements which will be exemplified in the article hereinafter described, and the scope of the invention will be indicated in the claims.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of the invention, reference should be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in which:

FIG. 1 is a top plan view of the single blank of sheet material, from which the article of manufacture is erected;

FIG. 2 is a view of the string afiixed to the article;

FIG. 3 is a top plan view of the article, illustrating the manner in which it is pre-folded and has the string affixed to it, prior to shipping and/ or storing it;

FIG. 4 is a practial top plan view illustrating the manner in which the article is cut to provide interlocking tabs thereon for integrally affixing the rings and the disc thereof together;

FIG. 5 is a partial top plan view like FIG. 4, illustrating the manner in which the disc and one ring is folded with respect to the other one of the rings;

FIG. 6 is a perspective view of the article when erected;

FIG. 7 is a partial perspective view illustrating the manner in which the rings or disc can be supported to relieve the strain on one or the other of them;

FIG. 8 is a top plan view of a blank which is cut and scored so as to form another article exemplary of the invention;

FIG. 9 is a perspective view of an article, illustrating the manner in which the center portion thereof can be cut in the shape of a product, such as a bottle, as shown;

FIG. 10 is a perspective view of an article, illustrating the manner in which it can be formed so as to hang tilted from horizontal; and

FIG. 11 is a view illustrating the manner in which the article can be formed and mailed, as a greeting card, or advertising mailing piece.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views of the drawing.

Referring now to the drawing, in FIG. 1 there is shown a circular-shaped blank 11 of sheet material, preferably heavy paperboard, which is cut and scored so as to form a disc 12 having two annular rings 14 and 16 concentrically disposed with respect to it, about its periphery. The disc 12 and the rings 14 and 16 are integrally affixed together in a fashion such that they can be folded perpendicular to one another, to form the three dimensional article 10, illustrated in FIG. 6. A string 18 is threaded through ape:tures 20 and 22 formed in the ring 16 and the disc 12, respectively, for hangingly supporting the article 10, like a mobile.

The blank 11 preferably is pre-folded in a substantially fiat configuration and the string 18 is afiixed to it, prior to shipping and/ or storing it, in a fashion such that the blank ll is erected to form the article 10, simply by grasping the string 18 and permitting the blank to free-fall.

The article 10, as can be seen in FIG. 6, has a unique, eyecatching construction. Each of the rings 14 and 16 and the disc 12 can be colored differently, on one or both sides, to provide an attractive, decorative ornament which can be suspended by the string 18, in the home or ofiice. Alterna ively, the rings 14 and 16 and the disc 12 can be appropriately colored and advertising matter provided on them, as generally illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 3 by the reference numeral 24, to provide an attractive, decorative, eye-catching advertising display.

The article 10 also is easily adapted to advertise different products or the like, simply by providing the appropriate advertising matter on it. This is easily accomplished since the rings 14 and 16 and the disc 12 can be colored and the advertising matter printed or otherwise provided on them, while the article 10 is in the blank form illustrated in FIG. 1. The article 10 can be shipped and/or stored in the form of the blank 11, or as indicated above, it can be pre-folded in a substantially flat configuration, as illustrated in FIG. 3, prior to shipping and/or storing it. Accordingly, it is easily and conveniently shipped and/ or scored in, for example, a large mailing envelope. Furthermore, by affixing a string 18 to the pre-folded blank 11 in the manner described above, the article 10 can be easily and quickly automatically erected, by holding the end of the string 18 and letting the pre-folded blank 11 drop or free-fall. It can be therefore seen that the article 10 has many of the characteristics generally associated with the type of advertising display which the industry is seeking.

More specifically, the article 10 is formed from the single circular-shaped blank 11 of material, illustrated in FIG. 1. The blank 11 has cut lines 26 and 28 in it, forming the disc 12 and the annular rings 14 and 16. The disc 12 is integrally affixed to the annular ring 14, by means of a pair of tabs or hinges 38 and 40. These hinges 38 and 40 are formed by cut lines 30 and 32 extending from the out line 26, which is discontinuous at these two positions, into the annular ring 14, and by the score lines 34 and 36 extending from the ends of the cut lines 30 and 32 to the cut line 26. It may be noted that the hinges 38 and 40 are substantially diametrically opposed with respect to one another, however, the score lines 34 and 36 thereof are slightly off-center, on a line 27 which is parallel to a line 29 drawn together the center axis of the disc 12, as illustrated.

The annular ring 14 likewise is integrally affixed to the annular ring 16, by means of a pair of tabs or hinges 42 and 44 which are displaced approximately 90 with respect to the hinges 38 and 40. These hinges 42 and 44 are formed by cut lines 46 and 48 extending from the cut lines 28, which is discontinuous at these two positions, into the annular ring 16, and by the score lines 50 and 52 extending from the ends of the cut lines 46 and 48 to the cut line 28. It may be noted that the score lines 50 and 52 also are slightly off-center, on a line 51 which is parallel to another line 53 drawn through the center axis of the disc 12, perpendicular to the line 29.

The hinge pairs 38 and 40, and 42 and 44, can be positioned diametrically opposed to one another, that is the score lines thereof can be formed along the lines 29 and .4 53 drawn through the center axis of the disc 12, if desired. However, they are preferably provided slightly olfcenter, as described above, since this feature permits the articles 10 to be prefolded and thereafter easily and automatically erected to form the three dimensional configuration illustrated in FIG. 6, as fully described below.

The cut lines 30, 32, 46 and 48 preferably are arcuateshaped, as illustrated, to provide a more decorative appearance, however, they can be other than arcuate, for example, straight out lines. Also, these out lines extend into the rings 14 and 16 approximately one-half the distance across the widths thereof, however, it will be appreciated that the length thereof may vary depending upon the width of the rings.

The apertures 20 and 22 also are formed in the ring 16 and the disc 12, respectively, before the blank 11 is folded to form the article 10.

The blank 11 can be appropriately colored and advertising matter provided on it, prior to cutting and scoring it. Alternatively, this can be done after it is cut and scored.

The article 10 can be shipped and/ or stored in the form of the blank 11, and thereafter fully erected by the purchaser. Preferably, however, the blank 11 is pre-folded, as described below, and has the string 18 affixed to it so that it can be simply removved from its mailing envelope and quickly and automatically erected by holding the string 18 and letting the pre-folded blank 11 free-fall. The blank 11 is pre-folded, by reversely folding the disc 12 within the ring 14, along the score lines 34 and 36, and by thereafter reversely folding the ring 14, and the disc 12 which is aflixed to it, within the ring 16, along the score lines 50 and 52. The string 18 now is threaded through the aperture 20 in the ring 16, from the back to the front, and then through the aperture 22 in the disc 12, from the front to the back. The string 18 advantageously can have a pin 19 affixed to its one end, which functions both to assist in threading it and to secure it to th6e blank 11, or article 10, as illustrated in FIGS. 3 and When folded in this fashion and the string 18 afiixed to it, the blank 11 appears as illustrated in FIG. 3. It may be noted that the sides of the disc 12 and the ring 14 opposite those shown in FIG. 1 are now visible. More importantly, it may be noted that a portion of the ring 14 slightly overlaps the ring 16, and a portion of the disc 12 slightly overlaps the ring 14. This is due to the fact that, as indicated above, the hinges 3G, 32, 42 and 44 are formed slightly off-center. The important advantage provided by this construction is that there is no binding of material, and the blank 11 will easily and automatically unfold so as to form the three-dimensional article 10, as illustrated in FIG. 6, when the sting 18 is held and the pre-fold blank is permitted to free-fall. For simplicity, the hinges 38, 40, 42 and 44 integrally afiixing the disc 12 and the rings 14 and 16 together are not shown, however, in FIGS. 4 and 5, the hinge 42 wichh integrally afiixes the rings 14 and 16 together is illustrated. It can be seen that the hinges 42 (also the hinge 44) folds along the score line 50 and supports the ring 14 within the ring 16, in a plane which is perpendicularly disposed with respect to the ring 16. The disc 12 is supported within the ring 14 in a similar fashion, by the hinges 38 and 40.

When the article 10 is erected, it may be noted that its weight is supported by the hinges 42 and 44. In some cases, Where the paperboard from which the article 10 is fabricated is relatively lightweight, the hinges 42 and 44 may not be sufficiently strong to support it so that both the disc 12 and the ring 14 tend to sag. That is, the disc 12 is pulled upwardly, closer to the ring 16, by the weight of the article 10. This problem can be eliminated, by threading a length of plastic tubing 78 on the string 18, in a fashion such that it is lwedged between the edges of the ring 16 and the disc 12, as illustrated in FIG. 7,

so as to maintain the disc 12 and ring 16 in spaced relation.

In the illustrated embodiment, only two annular rings 14 and 16 are shown formed concentrically about the disc 12,-so that a three dimensional article is formed, when erected. However, it is apparent that the article need not be limited to three dimensions, but can have more, for example, 4, 5, 6 or more, planes, with each plane being hinged to the adjacent one, with hinges which are slightly off-center and displaced 90, with respect to the hinges on an adjacent plane. For example, in the case of the article illustrated in FIGS. l-6- [another ring can be provided, by forming another cut line similar to the cut lines 26 and 28 in the blank 11. The hinges integrally aflixing the additional ring to the ring 16 are displaced 90 with respect to the hinges integrally aflixing the ring 14 to the ring 16.

Also, as indicated above, the article 10, while illustrated in FIGS. 1-6 as being formed of a disc and rings, can be formed having ellipses, ovals, squares, rectangles, rhomboids, as well as other regular or irregular shapes which allow for hinge pivot points at right angles. For example, in FIG. 8 there is illustrated a blank 80 having a generally irregular shaped outline, and cut lines 81 and 82 therein which generally correspond to the outline of the blank, and which form an irregular shaped center section 83 having similar irregular shaped rings 84 and 85 concentrically about it and one another. The center section 83 is integrally afiixed to the ring 84, and the latter is integrally affixed to the ring 85, with hinges 86 and 87, respectively, formed in the above-described manner.

Furthermore, the center portion of the article need not correspond to the shape of the portions which are disposed about it. For example, the center portion, rather than being in the form of a disc, as in the case of the article 10 illustrated in FIGS. l-6, can be die-cut to the shape of a product, such as the bottle 90 illustrated in FIG. 9, a package, or other desired configuration.

As illustrated in FIG. 10, the article 10 illustrated in FIGS. l-6, as Well as other articles formed in accordance with the invention, can be formed so that the ring 14 will tilt, at any desired angle, above or below horizontal. This is accomplished simply by relocating the position of the aperture through which the string 18 extends, from its position on the line labelled vertical to another position, as illustrated.

It is apparent from the above description of the article 10 that it can be fabricated in numerous sizes. For example, when used as an advertising display which is to be suspended by a string, like a mobile, the article preferably is of a substantial size so that it stands out and is readily apparent. When used as a decorative ornament, it may preferably be slightly smaller. By making the article of a size such that it will easily fit into a standard letter or card-size mailing envelope 102, as illustrated in FIG. 11, the article easily serves as a unique advertising mailing piece or as a novelty greeting card 100. When pre-folded and with a string aflixed to it in the above-described fashion, the greeting card will be automatically erected when pulled out of the envelope. The center section advantageously can be formed to provide an object which is representative of the occasion. For example, in the case of a birthday greeting card, the center section can be provided in the form of a birthday cake. The article also can provide a novel Christmas greeting card which, after viewing it, can be hung on a Christmas tree as a decorative ornament.

The article 10 also be fabricated or formed so that it can be supported on a wire or the like which wire, in turn, is aflixed to a stand or tripod. The wire, also, can be aflixed to and driven by motor means, to provide a positive motion display. In such case, the article 18 is advantageously formed of a corrugated board which is cut, scored and folded generally in the manner described above, for easy opening. The off-center hinges thereof preferably are spaced 45 apart, on the opposite sides of a line drawn perpendicular to the direction of the flutes in the corrugated board. With this arrangement, the flutes of the outer ring run vertically, the same as the flutes in the center portion thereof, so that a straight wire of a gauge to fit into the flutes can be extended through the flutes in the outer ring and into the flutes of the center portion.

It will thus be seen that the objects set forth above, among those made apparent from the preceding description, are efliciently attained and, since certain changes may be made in the above article without departing from the scope of the invention, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawings shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

It is also to be understood that the following claims are intended to cover all of the generic and specific features of the invention herein described, and all statements of the scope of the invention, which, as a matter of language, might be said to fall therebetween.
