  • Patent number: 7546934
    Abstract: A gravity-feed dispenser includes an internal blocker assembly to prevent folded sheet from falling away from the dispensing aperture. A preferred embodiment includes a spring biased blocker arm which cooperates with a spring biased guide plate to maintain the napkins in position throughout dispensing of the stack, especially when the stack is depleted and of insufficient weight to urge the remaining sheets into position. In a preferred embodiment, the dispenser is provided with a convertible support, suitable for mounting the dispenser on either a wall or a countertop with a quick release mounting bracket.

  • Publication number: 20040031243
    Abstract: Packaging materials, in particular, film and products which comprise (a) a substrate and (b) an energy sensitive indicia-former. The film has at least one heat sensitive indicia-former on at least part of the film. The film comprises a thin film substrate which is substantially transparent to radiant energy. Associated with at least part of the film substrate is an absorbent material which is sufficiently opaque to radiant energy to absorb said radiant energy and convert the radiant energy into heat energy. The indicia-former undergoes conversion from a first visual condition to a second visual condition upon exposure to heat energy from the absorbent material. The film is used preferably as a shrink wrap of the open top of drink containers and to identify the contents of the container.
