EDWIN J. PETERS ATTORNEY BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION l. Field of the Invention The invention pertains to the field of art concerned with forrning relatively thin or flat items from a sheet or web of material, such as paper, metal, foil, plastic, textile, cardboard, or any other material which can be bent or folded without severing or parting completely. For example, the invention can be used to form a plurality of design garment patterns, or a plurality of sheet metal products having predetermined embossed or printed indicia and/or shapes thereon.

2. Description ofthe Prior Art The closest prior art resides in the envelope addressing and forming field. Such prior art suggests printing addresses on the same side of every section of continuous paper stock, then bursting or slitting the paper, then arranging and aligning the printed section in a stack, and then cutting the envelope blanks. The present invention avoids the necessity of such bursting, slitting, arranging and/or aligning operations, and the attendant labor and equipment therefor.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The invention provides a method of producing items having predetermined indicia and/or predetermined shapes therein, including the step of first feeding a web or sheet of material to an apparatus capable of selectively forming predetermined indicia or shapes at first predetermined locations on a` first surface of the web. The next step includes forming predetermined indicia or shapes at the predetermined locations on the first surface of the web. The next step includes feeding the web to an apparatus capable of selectively forming predetermined indicia or shapes at second predetermined locations disposed between the first predetermined locations and on a second surface of the web which is the reverse side of the first surface. The next step includes forming predetermined indicia or shapes at the second predetermined locations on lthe second surface of the web. The next step includes forming the web zigzag fashion into a stack so that the first and second predetermined locations and the indicia and/or shapes all have substantially identical orientations and face the same direction. The next step includes cutting the stack or sever substantially simultaneously the web into a plurality of the items each having predetermined indicia or shapes thereon.

The invention also provides a sheet or web of material including a first surface having predetermined indicia thereon or predetermined shapes therein at first predetermined locations thereof. The web also includes a second surface having predetermined indicia thereon or predetermined shapes therein at second predetermined locations thereof. The second surface of the web is the reverse side of the first surface. The web is adapted to be formed into a stack wherein the indicia and/or shapes and the first and second predetermined locations all have substantially identical orientations and face the same direction. The web is adapted to be formed into the stack by means of a single fold or bend between adjacent ones of the first and second predetermined locations.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing a fanfolded stack of paper being fed to a printer for the first printing operation.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing the printed stack of FIG. l being fed to a printer for the second printing operation.

FIG. 3 is an enlarged perspective view of the stack after completion of the printing operations of FIGS. 1 and 2.

FIG. 4 is perspective view showingthe stack of envelope blanks severed from the printed stack of FIG. 3.

FIG. 5 is a view showing a template for marking printing location on initial sections ofthe paper.

FIG. 6 is a view showing guide marks on initial sections of the paper to facilitate alignment of the die cutter with the envelope blank outline.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS The preferred embodiments are described in connection with a rapid method of computer addressing envelopes before the envelope blank is formed. However, it should be noted that the invention can be readily employed to produce a variety of flat items made of any web, foil or sheet which can be bent or folded without completely severing. For example, the invention can be used to produce metal foil articles having particular repetitive or nonrepetitive embossed shapes and/or indicia thereon.

FIG. I shows a fanfolded or zigzag folded stack 11 of paper 12 having uniformly dimensioned sections I3 interconnected by perforated lines 15. Along each edge I7 is a line of tracking holes 19 which mate with the sprockets (not shown) of the tracking mechanism of a high-speed computer printer, indicated by the line labeled 21.

The printer 21 or other apparatus capable of forming predetermined indicia 23 and/or shapes on the web or paper 12 may have an information storage device or be associated with an electronic computer. The information for such shapes or indicia 23, such as a list of different name and addresses, may enter into such storage device or computer by any convenient means, e.g., magnetic tape, operator keyboard, punched cards, disc pack, punched tape, MICR transducer, OCR equipment.

The first printing operation illustrated in FIG. 1 entails printing a different name and address on one side 25 of the paper l2 at a predetermined first location 27 in alternate or every other section, such as sections 13A, 13C, 13E-ISU, 13W, 13Y. As the paper l2 emerges from the printer 2l, it forms or falls into another stack 29 having section 13A on the bottom and section I3Z on the top of the stack 29, assuming only 26 sections I3 in the continuous paper form.

The top section 132 of the stack 29 thus formed after the first printing operation, is then fed to the printer 2l (see FIG. 2) for the second printing operation. The printer 2l may be the same apparatus as printer 2l, or may be a different or separate apparatus. The paper I2 is now fed so that the printing in the second printing operation occurs in second predetermined locations 31 on the side 33 of the paper l2 opposite to the side 25 printed in the first printing operation.

FIG. 2 shows that the second printing; operation prints only on those sections, such as 13B, 13D, 13E-13V, 13X, I3Z, left unprinted by the first printing operation, on the opposite or reverse surface 33 of the paper I2, and with the printed in dicia upside down relative to the indicia printed during the first printing operation.

FIG. 3 shows the stack 35 after completion of the second printing operation. In this stack 35 it will be noted that the first and second predetermined locations 27 and 31 are aligned and similarly oriented, and so are the printed indicia 23. Thus, the stack 35 of FIG. 3 is now ready for the die cutting operation to form the envelope blanks 37 from the printed sections. No bursting or slitting of the paper 12 is necessary. Moreover, the stack 35 of FIG. 3 is perfectly aligned and ready for cutting without the need for stack aligning equipment or labor, such as the conventional stack joggler equipment.

FIG. 4 shows the stack 35 of FIG. 3 after having been die cut to form the stack 39 of addressed envelope blanks 37. From this view, it should be evident why :it is essential that the printing be placed in the predetermined locations 27 and 31, and that such locations 27 and 3l and the envelope blank contour be carefully positioned relative to the section edges I7.

After the diecutting operation, the stack 39 of addressed blanks 37 may be transferred en masse to conventional envelope blank folding and gluing machinery (not shown) to form the finished addressed envelopes. The inherent alignment of the stacks 35 of FIG. 3 and 4 presents the required oriented and aligned envelope blanks 37 to such envelope convening or folding and gluing machinery.

An optional step is illustrated in FIG. 5 showing a plastic template 41 used to outline by means of a window 43 the predetermined printing location 27 or 31 on the first few sections 13 for each printing run or operation. The template 4l has several stubby pegs 45 or protrusions which fit within the tracking holes 19 to position the template 41 where desired. The resulting printing location outline facilitates aligning the printing apparatus 21 or 2l' with the sections 13 to be printed.

Another optional feature is shown in FIG. 6 illustrating a stack 11 of unprinted fanfolded paper l2 having guide marks 47 thereon for aligning the diecutter (not shown) with the l desired envelope blank contour. Such guide marks 47 may be formed on some or all of the sections at any time prior to the diecutting operation, and may even be preprinted when paper 12 is manufactured.

The printing apparatus used for the first and second printing operations may be the same apparatus, or two separate apparatus 21 and 21'. When two separate printing apparatus 21 and 21 are used, they may, if desired, be arranged in series to perform the second printing operation immediately after the first printing operation without the necessity of forming an intermediate stack, such as stack 29, after the first printing operation. Such an arrangement would involve feeding the paper strip 12 shown in FIG. l directly to the second printing apparatus 21 `which should be arranged to perform the second printing operation onto the reverse side 33 thereof and on the sections omitted by the first printing operation. Such an arrangement should result in the printed stack 35 shown in FIG. 3 in accordance with the present invention.

It should be apparent that desired constant or repetitive indicia and/or shapes may be placed on the sheet or web before, during, or after the first and second printing operations. For example, such repetitive, indicia may include the senders name and address, or the batch style or model number of the items'being produced. 4

The term envelope is used throughout this specification and its associated claims in a generic sense to indicate any article to which addresses may be applied, and is intended to include not only mailing envelopes but also cartons, wrappers, business postal cards, and any container which it may be desirable to preaddress or affix predetermined indicia and/or shapes thereto.

The details and sequence of steps performed in carrying out the subject method, as well as the structural details of the web, may obviously be varied within considerable limits without departing from the scope of the invention as defined in the following claims.
