ATTORNEY Patented May 18, 1954 um'rso stars ATNT OFFICE 2,678,769 TWO-iN-ONE BANK DEPOSIT ENVELOPE Andrew M. David, Washington, D. 0. Application April 2, 1951, Serial No. 218,826
This invention relates to a bank mailing envelope and particularly to a mailing envelope having two gummed flaps to permit two successive mailings.
An important object of the invention is to provide a multiple mailing envelope which provides a receipt for both the depositor and the bank teller.
Another object of the invention is to provide two receipts which are a part of the envelope itself and are perforated so as to be removed by the depositor or the bank teller at the proper time.
A more specific object of the invention is to provide a device which can be economically made from a single blank of paper and when folded into its various forms can be conveniently secured together so that it will have much the appearance of the ordinary envelope.
Another object is to provide a mailing piece which combines an original and a return mailing envelope in one.
These and other objects and advantages of the invention will more fully appear from the following description made in connection with the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference characters refer to the same parts throughout the views and in which:
Fig. 1 is a plan view of the two in one bank mailing envelope in open position showing the depositors deposit slip on the inside of the flap, and on the lower portion, the back of the bank tellers duplicate deposit slip.
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same envelope showing the bank tellers deposit slip folded back and exposing the name and address of the depositor on the face of the envelope.
Fig. 3 is a plan view of the sealed bank envelope before it is opened as shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the sealed bank envelope ready to remail to the depositor.
Fig. 5 is a blank or development of a singl sheet from which the bank mailing piece is produced.
The sealed envelope has on its front face H the address of the bank as shown in Fig. 3. On the reverse side of this front face H as shown in Fig. 1, is a deposit slip showing the items deposited by the customer.
The front face H as shown in Fig. 1 is a deposit slip showing the items deposited by the customer.
The front face H is provided with scored fold lines 4, 5, 6 and l and gummed strips 8, 9 and ID as shown on the margins of the deposit slip shown in Fig. 5.
When the sealed envelope is received by the bank, the teller tears off the deposit slip along the scored lines 4, 5, 6 and 1 and keeps the deposit slip for his own record.
On the reverse side of the sheet K shown in Figs. 1 and 5 is a duplicate deposit slip which is a receipt of the deposit duly stamped or acknowledged by the bank.
The deposit slip is torn off along the scored fold line 1 shown in Figs. 1 and 5 and deposited in the self addressed envelopes shown in Fig. 2 and formed by the panel B and the panel thereunder which is an extension of panel l2 shown in Figs. 1 and 5.
The envelop B is sealed by folding the panel 12 over the gummed strip 13 shown in Fig. 4 and is ready to mail as shown in Fig. 4.
It will be observed that Fig. 5 is a development of a single sheet from which the bank mailing piece is produced. This figure shows an elongated strip of sheet material having transverse fold lines which divide the sheet into four panels. The upper panel shows a mail deposit slip such as shown in Fig. l and on the opposite side of this panel is the name and address of the bank as shown in Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 also more clearly shows the third panel B having gummed flaps l i, l5 and fold lines It, H on each side of the panel. The pocket is formed by folding the panel B over the second panel which is an extension of the panel strip [2.
The gummed flaps l4 and it are moistened and folded over the edges of the second panel thereby forming a pocket.
On the reverse side of the fourth panel K is printed a duplicate deposit slip as shown in Fig. 2. This duplicate deposit slip is torn off and deposited in the pocket prior to remailing.
Th present practice is for banks to provide depositors with envelopes in which to mail check and draft deposits.
The depositor lists his checks and drafts on a deposit slip to which the checks and drafts are attached. The bank receipts the deposit slip and mails same in another envelope.
The use of one envelope instead of two obviously would lessen greatly the cost of material and labor.
It is obvious that the same type of envelope could be used by gas or electric companies, department stores or other business establishments which receive monthly payments from the customer and return statements and receipts to the customer.
It will, of course, be understood that various changes may be made in the form, details, ar-
3 rangements and proportions of the various parts throughout the views without departing from the scope of my invention.
It will thus be seen that there is provided an envelope in which the several objects of this 5 invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.
As various possible embodiments might be made of the above inventionkand asvarious changes might bemade in the embodiments aboveset 10 forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying, drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
