Fig. 10 is a sheet of prescription blanks reduced

and upon >which appear three iacsimiles of the

ience. Also, druggists and hospitals prefer pre
scription blanks originating from or written on
their establishments to have identifying indicia
conforming with the title designs used on the
labels applied to their bottles and boxes. This
practice not only affords easier reference to the
source of prescription, but also provides advan
tages from an advertising standpoint.
To print prescription blanks it has been neces
sary to setup an individual type form for each
negative paste-up shown in Fig. '7,
Fig. 11 is the printed prescription blank shown
in actual Isize when cut from the sheet shown in
Fig. 10.
A brief résumé of the procedural steps of the
20
method will aid in an understanding of its fea
tures and advantages. The method comprises
preparing a negative paste-up from photographic
reproductions of a prescription blank form and a
doctor, drugstore- and hospital and print the
blanks from these forms. When the druggists
wish to furnish physicians with their prescription
blanks separate forms must be set up for the in
dividual doctors and the individual drugstores.
An object of the invention, therefore, is to pro
vide a simple and more economic method of mak
ing prescription blanks.
Another object is to provide a procedure for
simultaneously printing a greater number and

ups are then arranged upon a masking out glass
and an oifset plate made in the conventional
manner upon a light lsensitized printing plate.
After etching, this` plate is used on a press for

printing the prescription blanks. That part of
the process subsequent to the making of the neg
ative paste-ups is conventional in offset printing
and forms no part of the present invention.
In Fig. l of the drawings at _IU is shown a pre

The position

is to take the place of the panel as will be here
