  • Patent number: 5544807
    Abstract: A continuous business forms assembly comprises a plurality of interconnected units stackable into an array, with each unit including a first ply and a second ply. The first ply of one of the units is connected to the first ply of an adjacent unit with a series of transversely spaced ties. The second ply of the one unit is connected to the second ply of the adjacent unit with a series of transversely spaced ties which are transversely offset with respect to the first ply ties. When the business forms assembly is folded at the interconnection of the adjacent units, the first and second plies combine to form only a single ply thickness which is required to be folded.
