YJ, assignor to Agfa Ansco Corporation, Binghamton, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application August 22, 1936, _Serial No. 97,430 3 Claims. (Cl. 95-400) My invention relates to a means for sensitizing the particular application of the invention shown herein. My invention has special value in connection With particular reference now to Figure 1, my with entry cards such as bank deposit cards and invention includes a holder designated generally cards. . . ' 5 1 the like, on which a plurality of notations or re corded data are to be made, such as deposits, withdrawals, etc. In the use of such cards, a depositor generally places his signature adjacent one end thereof at a place provided therefor, the rest of the card being ruled and lined for the data to be recorded thereon. In the ordinary practice of using these cards, when a card has been ?lled with the entries, and a new card is required, the depositor has had to come into the bank or insti~ 15 tution and sign a new card. This results in in convenience and delay both for the depositor and the bank. By my invention, I have provided a means whereby the original signature may, by suitable ~0 apparatus, forming no part of this invention, be photographically transferred or copied from the original card to the new card, the signature sec tion or portion of the new card being sensitized for this purpose. In a large bank or institution where there are thousands of these cards in use daily, such a pro cedure obviously speeds up materially the business of making these transfers. More particularly my invention provides a 30 means for partially sensitizing cards of the char~ acter just described-namely, at the signature portion thereof—the remainder of the card being printed or ruled for the regular entries to be made thereon. 35 as A and which comprises a box-like frame com prising the ends I, sides 2 and top 3. The bottom of the box-like frame, opposite the top 3, is open. The sides 2 are shorter than the ends I to permit the frame being disposed over a tray or other receptacle 4. In such position the end members 10 i serve as supporting legs for the frame. The frame A is provided inside with a plurality of spaced partition members 5 extending from the top 3 downwardly to a point flush with the lower edges of the sides 2. 15 Each of the partitions 5 is provided on one side with spring ?ngers 6 bent to resiliently engage against the next adjacent partition. These partitions 5 and spring ?ngers B are adapted to receive and frictionally hold in spaced relation the cards ‘I which may be easily slipped into and out of position in the frame through the open side thereof. The cards "I are slightly shorter than the sup porting ends I but project below the sides 2 and partitions 5 a substantial distance, whereby when the frame is positioned over the tray or other re ceptacle 4, the free ends of the cards extend down wardly thereinto. The cards 1 are provided with ruled sections throughout the greater portion of their body to receive the various entries for which the cards are adapted. The lower ends of the cards are pro vided with a section 8 adapted to be sensitized and upon which may be exposed in any suitable My invention also has for its object the pro vision of a simpli?ed apparatus for holding a plu camera or photographic copying apparatusthe rality of the cards for sensitizing and also for signature or other data desired thereon. In the developing and ?xing after exposure. case of the bank entry cards above referred to, Other objects and advantages will be apparent ' the sensitized section 8 has photographed thereon 40 as the description proceeds, reference now being , the original signature from the original card had to the ?gures of the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application and wherein like reference numerals indicate like parts. Figure 1 is a detail sectional view of my im proved card holding means. Figure 2 is an end section thereof taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a plan view of the type of card with 50 which my invention is particularly adaptable. It will be understood at the outset that al though I have shown and will describe my in 45 vention in connection with bank entry cards, the same is adaptable for other types of cards and 55 uses. I do not wish to be limited, therefore, to signed by the depositor. The card holding apparatus just described is used both in connection with sensitizing the cards and also in processing the same after ex posure. When a new batch of cards is to be sensitized they are placed in the holder A in the manner above described and shown clearly in Figures 1 and 2, with the end sections 8 thereof extending downwardly below the sides 2. The tray 4 is then ?lled with sensitized emulsion and 50 the frame disposed thereover in a manner to ‘bring the ends of the card into such emulsion. _The level of the emulsion in the tray ismain tained at a predetermined height so as to cover the ends of the cards representing the signature 55 2 2,129,302 section 8. After the cards have remained in the emulsion for a certain length of time, the frame is removed, the emulsion adhering to the cards and remaining thereon. The frame with the cards is then placed in a cooling chamber where upon the emulsion is set and becomes hardened, after which it can be dried by the application of a frame having closed top, sides and ends and an open bottom, spaced partitions in said frame, and means for holding cards against said parti tions with one end of said~cards projecting be yond said partitions and toward said open bottom warm air thereto. for immersion in a receptacle. The cards may then be re 1. A holder for cards to be partially sensitized ‘ and treated with photographic baths comprising moved, trimmed and packaged or stacked for use. . 2. A holder for cards to be partially sensitized After a plurality of these cards have been ex and treated with photographic baths comprising posed in the manner explained, they are again placed in a holder frame 8 and disposed over a tray 4 in which is a developer ?uid which develops the images on the sections 8. The frame is then placed over another similar tray in which is a fix ing bath, and after treatment therein, the cards‘ may be removed from the frame and washed to remove the adhering developer and ?xer. After a frame having closed top, sides and ends and an open bottom, spaced partitions in said frame, and means for holding cards against said partitions with one end of said cards projecting beyond said partitions and toward said open bottom for im mersion in a receptacle, said means comprising drying the cards are ready for use in the usual resilient fingers on said partitions whereby said cards are frictionally held against said partitions. 3.
