STATIONERY
Vaughan M. `West„ Chicago, Ill.A
Application August 24, 1936, Serial No.'97.,*506
4 Claims.
(Cl. 22S-_92.7 ).
This invention relates to stationery and has for
one of its objectsto Aprovide a sheet of stationery
adapted to be folded for mailing purposes and
provided with a ñap, which fiap is adapted to
5 be engaged internally with the folded sheet to
hold same folded and substantially doncealed
when so engaged, the flap being also adapted to
be folded and secured externally to the folded
10
sheet and exposed to View when so engaged.
It is also an object of my invention to pro
vide a space for the addressee’s name and address
on the side of the folded sheet to which the flap
À is secured when exposed to View and a return
address on the flap.
A further and more specific object is to pro
vide a sheet of stationery having a space for a
letter and for a reply, said sheet being adapted
to be folded to conceal said space, there being
a flap on said sheet adapted to be engaged with
20 the folded sheet to hold same folded for mail
ing unsealed and provided with a return address
concealed when said flap is so engaged, the sheet
having a space for the addressee’s nan-le and
15
address exposed to View when the sheet is folded
and said fiap being adapted to be folded and
secured in position over the addressee’s name
and address to conceal the same and to expose
the return address on the flap.
Further objects and advantages of my inven
30 tion will appear from the following detailed de
scription, taken in connection with the accom
panying drawing, in which:
.
Figure 1 is a view showing the inner side of an
unfolded sheet of stationery embodying the pres
35 ent invention;
Figure 2 is a view showing the opposite side of
the unfolded sheet;
Figure 3 is a view showing the sheet partially
folded;
40
Figure 4 is a perspective View showing the sheet
substantially completely folded and the manner
in which the flap is engaged internally with the
folded sheet to hold the same folded for mailing
unsealed; and
45
`
Figure 5 is a perspective view showing the flap
folded and secured externally to the folded sheet
with the return address on the flap exposed to
view.
Referring to the drawing, the sheet of sta
50 tionery 5 selected for illustration has on its inner
surface a space at 6 for a letter and a space at 'I
for a reply. Any suitable letterhead 8 may be
provided above the space 6 if and as desired.
One side 9 of the sheet is provided intermediate
its ends with a flap I0 which may be formed
integral with the sheet 5 as shown or may be
made up separately and suitably secured to the
sheet within the scope of the appended claims.
The flap IU 1s preferably joined to the side 9 of
the sheet 5 by a perforated or otherwise suitably
weakened line I2. The back side of the sheet
5 is provided at I4 with a space for the addressee’s
name and address. The flap I 0 is provided, along
the outer margin of its front side, with a suitable
adhesive I5 and the back side of the flap Ill
bears the return name and address at I6.
In use the letter, which may be a circular,
business, personal or other letter, is written in
the space at 6. 'I‘he opposite ends of the sheet 5
are then folded along the transverse lines of fold 15
I'I and I8 as shown at I9 and 2|] in Figure 4,
whereupon the sheet thus folded is folded in the
direction indicated by the arrows in Figure 3,
along the longitudinal median line of fold 2l,
substantially as shown in Figure 4. The flap I0 20
is then folded in the direction indicated by the
arrows in Figure 4 and is engaged internally be
tween the folded portions I9 and 20 and the
address-bearing portion I4 of the sheet. In this
position the flap I0 holds the sheet folded for 25
mailing unsealed and the flap with the return
address thereon is concealed within the folded
sheet. Postage suitable for an unseal'ed letter is
applied at 22 and the folded sheet is ready for
mailing.
30
Upon receipt by the addressee the flap IIJ is
withdrawn from its engagement with the folded
sheet as above described, and upon writing the
reply, order, or the like in the space at TI, the
sheet is folded as before except that the flap 35
I0 is now folded and secured by the adhesive I5
externally to the folded sheet as shown in Figure
5. In this position the flap ID covers the ad
dressee’s name and address at I4 and exposes
to View the return name and address at I6. Let
ter postage is -applied at 24 and the sealed sheet
is ready for return. Upon receipt the device is
opened along the weakened line I2.
I do not intend to be limited to the precise
details shown or described.
