Pradt, Neenah, Wia, assignor to Mara thon Paper Mills, Company, Bothsehild, Wia, a _ corporation of Wisconsin. ' _ Application June '28, 1937, Serial No. 150,751 2- Claim. (CI. 24847)’ This invention relates to a unit for retaining on a heated roll coacting with the spreader roll ‘signs, posters, price tags, advertising cards, and and spaced away su?lciently to permit the de sired thickness of coating to be, applied. After the adhesive coating is spread it is congealed other printed matters for display purposes. In ‘ accordance with the invention theadvertising 5 matter is merely pressed by the ?ngers against the support and is thereby ?rmly retained in place, and it can be ‘readily removed by merely pulling it_away from the support. Further details and advantages of the inven-_ 10 tion will be apparent "from the following speci ?cation‘and drawing, wherein . Figure 1 is a plan view of the blank for mak ing a ‘preferred form of the easel support, , Figure 2 is a perspective view of the blank in 15 partially set up condition, Figure 3 is a perspective view of the easel sup port at a later stage of the set-up, ' _ Figure 4 is a perspective View of the easel sup port completely set up in relation to a card which 20 it may retain, and > by passing the web over a chilled roll and a cover strip is applied lightly thereto: This method and apparatus for carrying same out is disclosed in copending application Serial 99,648, which ma tured to Patent No. 2,089,525, dated August 10, 1937. a In order to protect the adhesive coating 5 ap plied on ?ange portions 25 and 26, and tab is prior to ‘use, a peelable ‘cover strip 3 is applied thereto. Such cover strip may be made of glassine, Hollandcloth and the like which will 15 adhere to the adhesive coating but will readily - peel therefrom. One- gin 8 of the cover strip extends beyond the score‘ line it so that when the blank is folded on score line i3 as shown in Figure 2 the cover strip 3 y be readily grasped 20' esive coating. Figure 5 is a cross-sectional view taken on ' and peeled from. the » In setting up the msel support the cover strip lines 5—5 of Figure 4. As shown in the drawing, the easel support is made up from a blank l0 which is slit along line it and scored along line it to form two sub stantially triangular portions l2 and it, and as is ?rst peeled ofi after the blank is folded along score line is as shown in Figure 2. Flanges 25 and 25 are then bent at right angles to each 25 other on score line it. Triangular portion M will then be superposed on triangular portion i2 ?ange portions 25' and 25. Slit it is continued _ by score line H which provides a hinge for ?ange' as shown in Figure 3. Tab is is then folded at right angles to ?ange portions 25 and 26. y The portion M is scored along line S to form t .25 along score line H as shown in Figure 3. a small hinged tab l5. '- FlangeyZE is scored along . Tab i5 is then folded over into engagement with the adhesive surface on tab at and pressed line H to‘ form a hinged tab [9. . Flanges 25 and-26, and tab it are coated with against same so as to retain it in place as shown a pressure sensitive composition 5. I prefer to in Figure 4, thereby forming the completely set 35 use a hotv melt pressure sensitive composition. This composition consists essentially of a co hesive agent, an adhesive agent, a plasticizer and a modi?er. The following, composition is suit able for use on display units made of cardboard.

The easel thus constructed consists of two, hinged ?ange portions 25 and '26 which are re tained at an angle to each other by means of tabs l5 and i9. Any other means may, of course, be utilized for. maintaining the ?anges in suit 40 45 up easel support. Amorphous wax (M.

When the easel is set 35 40/ up the triangular portions l2 and it serve as re- . - - iniorcing or strutniembers for the correspond 45' ing ?anges t5 and id. Flange 26 is doubly re iniorced by the two overlapping triangular por tions it and id. , ‘ as shown in Fls 4 and 5, the easel support is attached to any slnt'able supporting surface 42 by pressing the ?ange 36 thereagainst. The 50 pressure sensitive adhesive composition used is of ' ’ means of a roll or doctor blade heated to about such a character that the easel support'can be ISO-200° F; so as to spread a thin layer of the composition of suitable thickness on the base readily pressed against any type of supporting surface such as wood, glasssmetal, painted, var nished, or enameled surfaces wLQout fouling or 55 sheet; The baseesheet is preferably supported so 2,115,448 vmarring same. The easel can be readily removed by simply peeling it off the surface to which it is a?lxed and it can be reapplied to the same or any other surface by simply pressing it with the ?ngers. Flange 25 being coated with pressure sensitive adhesive 5 is adapted to retain a print red card such as _40 for display purposes. This card is ‘a?ixed to the ?ange by simply pressing members, means for retaining said ?anges at an angle to each other, strut members hingedly ‘con; nected to each of said ?anges for reinforcing said ?ange members, said ?anges being coated with pressure sensitive adhesive composition, one of said ?anges being adapted to be removably a?hied ' by pressure to a supporting surface and the other of said ,?anges being Iadapted to removably re it against the ?ange. 25, and can be readily re- ' tain an object for display purposes. 2. A blank for forming an easel support com 1o moved by peeling it o'?‘. Any other suitable ob 10 jects, such as cartons, jewelry,>etc., can thus be prising two substantially triangular portions sep mated by a slit and hinged together on a score a?ixed for ‘display purposes. ‘ The blank for forming the easel may be made line forming an extension of said slit, a score of any suitable sheet material such as cardboard, line extending transversely of said slit adjacent sheet metal, veneer, sti?ened cloth, sheets made the base of said triangles to form ?ange portions 15 of synthetic materials such as celluloid, resins hingedly connected to each of said triangular and the like. Although a speci?c contour of the portions, the ?ange portion hinged to one tri blank has been described, it is obvious that it is angular portion having a‘ hinged tab portion at one end thereof and coated with a pressure sensi merely given as an exempli?cation oi’ the inven tive adhesive composition, the apex of the other 20 tion. Any other suitable shape, form or contour 20 may be given to the blank or the easel support triangular portion having a hinged tab portion, said ?anges being coated with pressure sensitive embodying the principles of the construction dis closed. It is intended to include in the appended adhesive composition, one of said ?anges being claims the many variations and changes ‘which may be made of the speci?c embodiment of the invention herein disclosed. I claim: 4 1. An easel support for retaining articles for display purposes comprising two hinged ?ange adapted to be removably a?lxed by pressure to a - supporting surface and the other of said ?anges 25 being adaptedto removably retain an object for display purposes. \ V ALAN E.
