CONTAINER FOR MOUNTING ON DISPLAY CARDS Filed Aug. 3, 1939 ATTOE NE Y Patented Feb. 10, 1942 CONTAINER FOR MOUNTING N DISPLAY CARDS Earle I. Runner, Wheeling, W. Va. Application August 3, 1939, Serial No. 288,171
This invention relates to bags, envelopes, or pouches, adapted to contain medicinal or other tablets, nut meats, confections, and the like, a plurality of such containers being adapted to be mounted on a display card for counter display and sale.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a container of the character referred to which affords means whereby a plurality thereof may be conveniently and neatly afiixed to a backing for counter display and sale.
Another object of th invention is to provide such a container whereby an individual container may be readily removed from the display card without mutilating the container or disturbing the neatness of th display card bearing the remaining container.
Another object of the invention is to provide such a container for sealing the mouth thereof whereby the purchaser may be assured of securing a sealed container.
These and other objects are attained by the construction and arrangement illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which- Figure 1 is a front view of a display card bearing a plurality of the nvelopes;
Figure 2 is a, side elevational view of the same;
Figure 3 is a front view of one of the envelopes with th front lip extension folded forwardly and downwardly to better illustrate the construction; and
Figure 4 is a fragmentary view of the upper portion of th rear side of one of the envelopes.
The envelope comprises front and rear walls I and 2, respectively, the same being held together by side flaps 3 which are formed integral with the front wall I and which are folded over and permanently attached to the rear wall 2 by adhesive. The bottom of the envelope is closed because the stock from which the envelope is formed is folded upon itself on the bottom line 4 to form the front and rear walls.
The front wall I is preferably provided with a transparent window 5 through which the contents are visible.
The mouth of the envelope is located at I. Extending beyond the mouth opening are lips I0 and 12, the lip being an integral continuation of the front wall I, while th lip I2 is an integral continuation of the rear wall 2. Laterally extending perforations or scored lines l3 are formed in the lips at a spaced distance intermediate the mouth and the outer terminal edges of the lips, and the scored line in one lip registers with the scored line of the opposite lip.
The inner surface of one of the lips is gummed over its entir area extending between its longitudinal edges and between the entrance to the mouth of the envelope and the outer extremity of the lip. In the drawing, this gummed area I4 is depicted as being applied to the inner surface of the lip l2, although, as is apparent, the corresponding area of the lip It) may be gummed instead.
The outer surface of the rear lip I2 is also gummed in that area between its scored line I3 and its outer extremity, as shown at l5 in Fig.4.
In use, the product to be packaged is placed in the envelope through the mouth I, after which the envelope is sealed by the gum M. A plurality of the filled envelopes are then individually affixed to a display card 20 by the gummed area l5, the envelopes being arranged on the card in partially overlapping, spaced relation to each other and in spaced, aligned rows, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
When it is desired to remove an individual envelope, the same is torn along the scored line l3, thus severing the envelope into two parts along this lateral line. Obviously, those portions of the lips l0 and lz located above the scored line Will adhere to the card 20 because of the presence of the gum l5. However, the body of the envelope removed will continue to be effectively and securely sealed by the gummed area l4 intermediate the scored line and the mouth 1.
What is claimed is:
l. A container of the character described comprising front and rear walls having their sides and bottoms connected and having a mouth at the top of th container, a lip carried by each of the walls and extending outwardly from the mouth, each of said lips having transverse substantially registering lines of weakening, one of the lips having adhesive extending substantially throughout its inner face so as to provide for afiixment of substantially the entire front lip to said rear lip, and the rear lip having adhesive on its outer face extending from the said line of weakening of the rear lip outwardly toward the top of th lip whereby to provide for securement of the container to a support, and said lines of weakening being located intermediate the tops and bottoms of the lips whereby to provide for removal of the container from the support along said lines of weakening so that the portions of the lips below the lines of the weakening will remain adhered and the mouth throughout its inner face so as to provide for affixment of substantially the entire front lip to said rear lip, and means to secure the rear lip to a support at points above the said line of weakening of the rear lip, and said lines of weakening being located intermediat the tops and bottoms of the lips whereby to provide for removal of the container from the support along said lines of weakening so that the portions of the lips below the lines of the weakening will remain adhered and the mouth of the container thereby maintained sealed upon its removal from the support, and upon removal the portions of the lips above the lines of weakening will remain upon the support.
