This invention relates. to manifolding means, which are divided by lines of perforations II.
and more. particularly, to a manifolding pile com
Interposed between each two adjacent worksheet
prising a plurality of superposed continuous work-v strips III is a carbon strip Hi. If desired, the 'piie-~"""*“
sheet strips'and a continuous carbon sheet strip may be folded zig-zag fashion to form a block
interposed between each two adjacent worksheet or pack as shown and the folds may preferably 5

occur on the lines of perforations l2. After a
Heretofore, it has been suggested that the car
bon sheet strip be held captive in the pile against
lateral shifting movements and that the work
10 sheet'strips of the pile be held together in reg
istration by securing means such as staples ex
tending through all of the strips of the pile.
In cases where it is merely desired to hold the
carbon strip to the worksheet strip, it was pro
posed to employ spots of gum between the adja—
cent faces of the carbon strip and worksheet
strip.
‘An object of this invention is to provide a
manifolding pile in which the worksheet strips
20 are held togethensurface-to-surface in registra
the intervening carbon sheets l3a formed by
tearing, to be distributed as desired, or the book- '
let of forms II and carbon sheets [3a may be
left intact to receive subsequent writing or nota
tions. The device of the present invention is par
ticularly advantageous when the latter method
is employed, for by itthe carbon sheets 13a are
held captive between the worksheets or forms It
tion by means which, while it does not engage
so that writing on the uppermost form of the
booklet will be reproduced on the under forms
by the carbon or other transfer material.
the carbon strip, does, however, hold the carbon
strip captivein the pile against excessive lateral
together so as to hold the carbon strip captive
movement.

set of forms H has been written upon, it is
usually severed from the rest of the pile along
the lines of perforations i2, whereupon the forms
ll may be separated from each other and from 10
-
between the worksheet strips by adhesive applied
;
It is a further object of this invention to so
provide the manifolding pile just described that
the carbon'is held captive between the worksheets
both before and after the pile of strips is severed
into form-lengths, which operation may be fa
30 eilitated by transverse perforations in the work
sheet strips located between form-lengths, as has
been done heretofore.
This application is a division of my copending
application Serial No. 438,063, filed March 22,
35 1930; and according to the invention of the pres
ent application the objects aforesaid are attained
by providing a carbon strip which is apertured
at intervals along the length of the same, with
these apertures in the form of marginal cut-outs
40 or notches completely displaced from a transverse
tear-oil‘ line. ' Such cut-outs provide zones of
face-to-face direct contact between adjacent
worksheet strips, so that these strips may be se
cured together by suitable securing means lo
45 cated in-said- zones of direct contact.
In the accompanying drawing:
Heretofore, it was proposed to fasten the strips '
I
Figure l is a. perspective view of a manifold
ing strip made in accordance with the present in
vention.
Fig. 2 shows a length of said pile, laid out ?at.
The manifolding pile shown in the exemplify
ing embodiment illustrated in the drawing com
prises a plurality of continuous worksheet strips
ID, of which there may be two or more, having
55 a succession of printed forms or form-lengths ll
to the edges of the strips of the pile when the
pile is compressed. It was also proposed to secure
all of the strips, including the carbon strip or
strips, together by staples passing through all of
the strips. It was also proposed to hold the car
bon strips against shifting relative to the work-'
sheet strips by-spots of gum or other adhesive
material located between the adjacent faces of
the worksheet strips and the carbon sheet strips.
This latter proposal has the’ advantage of per
mitting the securing means to be applied while
collating the worksheet strips and carbon strips,
but it hasthe disadvantage of not holding the
worksheet strips in the pile together against lat
eral shifting movement relative to each other.
According to the present invention, the ad
vantage of being able to apply the securing means
during the process of collating the worksheet and
carbon sheet strips is retained, but in addition
the securing means also serves the function 'of
holding the worksheet strips against lateral shift
ing movements relatively and yet permits the car
bon strip to be entirely free of adhesive material
and avoids subjecting the carbon strip to pres
sure which is applied to cause the worksheet strips
to adhere together or to be secured together by a 7
staple, thus avoiding the marking of the face of
the under worksheet as a result of this pressure.
This is accomplished, according to the present
invention, by so shaping the lateral margin or
‘margins of the carbon strip at spaced points
2
2,105,449
along the length thereof to provide notches ll de
?ning ‘zones l5 of face-to-face direct contact of
the adjacent worksheets with each other, and by
locating the adhesive, staple or other worksheet
strip securing means in these zones of direct
contact.
In the form of the invention illustrated in the
drawing, the carbon strips iii are shown as of the
same width as the worksheet strips l0, and with
the lateral edges of all the strips in registration,
and the notches l4 spaced along both margins of
a carbon strip l3.
The securing device for attaching the work
sheet strips together in these zones ii are shown
as spots liof adhesive, applied to_ adjacent faces
of adjacent worksheet strips It.
When the notches l4 and the securing means I 8
are placed at both lateral margins 01' the pile as
shown, the carbon strip I3 is held against sub
20 stantial lateral shifting movement, and yet, in
The zones I5 for the securing means may be
placed wherever directed in the forms, for in
stance, as shown, at the tops of the forms.
Variations and modi?cations may be made
within the scope of this invention, and portions U!
of the improvements may be used without others.
I claim:

1. A manii'olding pile comprising a plurality oi
continuous worksheet strips and a continuous
carbon strip interposed between adjacent work 10
sheet strips, said strips having transverse lines of
severance at form-lengths along which the pile
may be severed, thereby producing a set of work
sheets and interleaved carbon sheet or sheets,
the carbon strips being of substantially the same
15
width as the worksheet strips and having cut
outs at both lateral margins and located at sheet
length intervals along the pile to provide zones
of face-to-i'ace direct contact of the adjacent
worksheet strips with each other; and means
a booklet comprising a set of forms II and inter
located, in said zones of direct contact for secur
. leaved carbon sheets I341. is severed from the pile, ing the worksheet strips together at both lateral

against casual removal by the tongue-like por
25 tions ll of a carbon sheet which'extend between
the notches I4 and the adjacent end I8 01 the
carbon sheet.
-
If it is of prime importance that the worksheet
strips be held together and unimportant that
'30 carbon strips be held captive in the pile against
all lateral movements, ‘as might sometimes be
the case, the zones l5 may be provided at only
one side edge of the pile, leaving the other side
of the pile open for easy removal of the carbon
35 sheets l3a from between the worksheets of the
booklet resulting from the tearing of! of a set of
forms.
Preferably, the zones l5 and the adhesive spots
l6 are so dimensioned that when the worksheet
40 strips are affixed together, the carbon strip I3
is not, engaged bythe adhesive and is entirely
una?ixed to the worksheet strips so as to be easily
separated from the worksheet strips when the
written booklet of forms II and carbon sheets
45 l3a have been severed from the pile, and, after
that, it is desired to separate the di?erent sheets
of the booklet.
'
The cut-outs II which provide the zones l5 oi
' direct contact of the adjacent worksheet strips
50 It with each other, are placed at intervals along
the pile, and at least one in each form, and these
cut-outs, while between the severance lines l2,
are wholly beyond any such line, so that the
worksheets may be held together by the securing
55 means after a set of superposed forms has been
severed from the pile.
_
It should also be understood that by having
the securing means located in a portion of the
pile uncovered by the carbon strip, pressuremiay
60 be employed in applying the securing means, for
instance, the gum spots IS, without that pres
.sure causing the underlying worksheets to be
marred or soiled by carbon from the carbon strips.
The use of spots of adhesive material is usually
65 preferred for the usual manifolding work such as
in ordinary typewriters, since the gum or ad
hesive may be of a kind having the characteristics
of easily being pulled oif the paper or of splitting
readily. When adhesive is used, typographical
70 errors may be easily erased on the carbon copies
by separating the sheets by merely pulling them
apart while they are on the typewriter-platen,
I “and then folding back the upper worksheet and
carbon strips while the erasure is being made on
75 the lower worksheet strip.

length'intervals along the pile to provide zones
of face-to-face direct contact of the adjacent
worksheet strips with each other; and means lo 40
