Stillwcll, Framingham, Mass., assignor ' to Dennison Manufactum; Company, Fram ingham, Mass., a corporation of Massachusetts' 'Application January 7, 193s, serial No. 57,895 6 Claims. ments of the invention are shown in the accom This invention relates- primarily to decalco mania transfers of the positive type in which each transfer design is adhesively mounted face panying drawing in which, outward on a backing of paper or other suitable material and, when transferred, _ is similarly mounted on the surface to be decorated or la-- neither margin trimmed olf; Fig. 2 is a face view_of another embodiment like that shown in Fig. 1 except in that both beled. margins have been removed; , While various kinds of adhesive may be employed, by using a water soluble adhesive the designs may be removed from the backing ma 10 terial merely by dipping the transfers in water, the a'dhesive remaining on the backs of the de signs serving to mount them on the surface to be decorated. , - Fig. 1 is a face view of one embodiment with ' Fig. 3 is a face view of still another embodi ment like those of Figs. 1 and 2 except in that only one margin has been trimmed off; I Objects of the invention are to provide trans dispenser for use with the aforesaid transfer fers in strip form, thereby facilitating the man strips. Each of the illustrated embodiments comprises ufacture, packaging and use thereof, to permit severance o_f individual transfers of the strip Y without danger of mutilation of the designs, and to facilitate the transfer of each design from the 20 backing to the surface to be decorated. lIn >one aspect the present invention involves spacing the designs apart lengthwise of the strip with waste zones between successive designs, -whereby the designs may be cut apart anywhere 25 in said zones without mutilating the designs. \ The design layer is preferably weakened at the junction between` said zones and designs, as by cuts extending through the design layer but not through the backing, whereby the designs may be readily removed by wetting Without trimming off said waste edges. » 10 Fig. fi is a section on line 4--4 of Fig. 3; Fig. 5 is a section on line`5-5 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 6' is a diagrammatic representation of a a backing I of paper or other suitable material, a coating 2 of adhesive and a layer of design' material 3 such as lacquer or other waterproof material. The layer 3 is preferably formed by 20, coating the entire surface of the gum 2 and thenv printing over this coating the desired designs. In the illustration the designs comprise those por tions of the layer 3 within the outlines 4, the layer 3 being weakened along these outlines as 25 by a. lcut extendingy entirelythrough the layer but not into the backing I. All of the strips outside the outlines 4 constitute waste material. In Fig. 1 none of the waste material has been cut away, in Fig. 2 both waste margins have been cut away, leaving only, the waste zones 5 between In another aspect the labels or other transfer . successive designs, and in Fig. 3 one waste mar designs have different dimensions edgewise of gin has been cut away, leaving the other- waste margin, together with the intermediate zones 5, the ribbon of backing material at different loca 35 tions lengthwise of the ribbon, that is, at least interconnected with the designs 4 through the 35 one lateral boundary of each design is not a medium of the backing I and the adhesive 2. In straight line extending lengthwise of the strip, the case of any one of the three modifications and each design is severed from the adjacent the strip of transfers may be dispensed in the design material throughout its entire periphery, `form vof a roll instead of inthe form of indi 40 40 whereby the non-rectangular designs, while vidual transfers. ' In use the transfersmay be removed from the joined together by said ribbon, may be removed strips in `various ways. For example, a single de individually without cutting them apart. margin of the strip outside said non-rectilinear sign may be severed from one end of the strip boundary is preferably cut entirely away so that the individual designs may be slipped olf that side of the strip when wetted. When both lateral 4boundaries of the designs are non-rectilinear both margins may be out away. However in the pre 50 ferred form only one margin is cut away and the anywhere through the adjacent waste zones 5 and then, after dipping the cut-‘olf portion in water to loosen the design from the backing, it may be applied to the surface to be decorated by means of the adhesive remaining on its rear face, the waste portions of the adjacent zones 5 either 50 waste margin along the opposite edge of the „ remaining on the backing or floating oiî in the strip preferably has portions extending between the designs, constituting the aforesaid waste zones. ' For the purpose of illustration typical embodi water independently of the design by virtue of the cuts 4 extending through the layer 3. Where one or both of the margins are cut away as illus trated in Figs. 2 and 3 each design may be slipped 55 2 ' 2,115,345 off ed'gewise of the strip directly upon vthe sur face to be decorated. ‘ a ribbon of backing material, a coating of ad hesive on said ribbon, and a layer of design ma These strips of transfers are alsowell adapted ' terial adhering to said coating, said layer com to be used in dispensing devices of the _type in ' prising a series of designs having anon-recti which the Iroll first passes through a reservoir of water and thence over al surface somewhat above the level of the Water so that the transfers may be peeled or slipped oi! after passing through the water and while on the raised surface. In '_10 this case the continuous backing serves to feed the strips as, for example, 'by means of a feed _ roll located beyond the aforesaid raised surface. ' In the dispenser illustrated in Fig. 6, 6 is the linear outline along~ each margin of the _ribbon and said strip being cut away along each of said outlines. , _ ' 4. A strip of decalcoma'nia transfers> comprising a ribbon of backing material, a coating .of ad hesive on said ribbon, and a layer of design ma' 10 terial adhering to said coating, said layer com prising a series of designs having a non-rectif linear outline along one margin of the ribbon feed roll, ‘I the reservoir of water, 8 the raised . and said strip being cut away along said outline, 15 surface and 9 the'take-up roll which may be provided with a handle_for feeding the strip. It should be understood that the present dis closure is for the purpose of illustration only and Athat this invention includes all modifications and equivalents which fall within the scope of the appended claims. I claim: ` ' . l. A strip of decalcomania transfers compris ing a ribbon of backing material, a coating of ad hesive on said ribbon, and a layer of design mate rial adhering to said coating, said layer compris ing a series of designs separated by waste zones and said strip having weakened lines at the juno' tions between -said designs and zones, said lines 30 being substantially confined to said layer. 2. A strip of decalcomania transfers compris ing a ribbon, of backing material, a coating of ad hesive on said ribbon, and a layer of design ma terial adhering to said coating, said layer com prising- a series of designs having a non-recti linear outline-along one margin of the ribbon and said strip _being cut away along said outline. 3. A strip of decalcomania transfers comprising the strip also comprising a waste margin having 15 portions extending between the designs and delin- ` eat'ed therefrom by weakened lines in’said layer. 5. A strip of decalcomania transfers comprising -a ribbon of backing material, a coating of ad-` hesive on said ribbon, and a__1ayer of design ma 20 terial adhering to said coating, said layer com prising a series of designs having a non-recti- ' linear outline along each margin of the ribbon and said strip being cut away along each of said outlines, the ‘strip also comprising a waste margin 25 having portions extending between the designs and delineated therefrom by weakened lines in said layer. 6._`A strip of decalcomania transfers comprising a ribbon of backing material, a coating of ad 30 hesive on said ribbon, and a layer of design ma terial adhering to said coating, said layer com prising a series of designs having a non-recti linear outline along one margin of the ribbon, said strip being cut away along said outline, and 35 said layer being cut throughout the remaining outline of each design. _ _ .
