  • Publication number: 20190162510
    Abstract: A target label assembly and method of application. The target label assembly includes a reactive target label shape that has a printed target pattern that matches, for use as an overlay, an original target pattern of a base paper target. The label shape includes an alignment window over a portion of the printed target pattern, such as a plurality of target circles, of the label that allows for see-through alignment with the original target pattern to be overlaid. Thus a paper target can be made into a reactive target.

  • Publication number: 20180372457
    Abstract: A target device for target practice. The target device is foldable from a planar cardboard material sheet into a three-dimensional housing having lifted target extensions. The target extensions can be formed or printed with a target shape, or a separate target label can be applied over the target extension. The target extensions can include a tab cut therein that can be folded outward to change the angle of the target extensions relative to the shooter user.

  • Publication number: 20180033340
    Abstract: A label assembly including a face sheet, a back sheet, and a layer of an adhesive positioned between the face sheet and the back sheet. A separation line divides the label assembly into at least two portions. The separation line is formed by a first tearable line of separation extending across the back sheet and a second tearable line of separation extending across the face sheet. The first tearable line of separation is offset with respect to the second tearable line of separation, and at least one of the first and second tearable lines of separation includes a non-linear portion directed toward and/or an angled portion extending at an angle to an other of the at least one of the first and second tearable lines of separation.

  • Patent number: 9881525
    Abstract: A self-adhesive label for application to an object as a hang tab, without the need for a separate application device. The label includes a printable surface, a fold line dividing the label into two portions, and two matching hanger opening shapes, one on each of the two label portions. The matching hanger openings are reversely positioned with respect to each other to provide corresponding alignment upon folding the label about the object to align the matching hanger opening shapes to form a hanger opening. The label is particularly suited for use with retail product packaging used in hanging retail displays.

  • Patent number: 9625239
    Abstract: An improved target label for shooting that includes at least one toner layer defining an image of a target, superimposed over a colored substrate having a color different from the toner layer, and a release layer underlying the toner layer. When a projectile strikes and penetrates the target, the toner layer displaces and scatters over an area surrounding the point of penetration, exposing the underlying colored substrate layer. The scattering of toner particles visually resembles gun powder and visually simulates damage over an area wider than the point of penetration by the projectile.

  • Patent number: 9539847
    Abstract: An index label and a method for applying an index label to a sheet or folder. A label assembly includes labels in a column, and each of the labels includes a fold line. A registration structure is adjacent the label column. Each label can be partially folded into a raised position, and the item to be label placed adjacent the raided portions, such as using the registration structure to align the item. The raised portion is lowered and adhered to the item. The remainder of the label is then removed from the label assembly and folded to adhere to itself and/or the item to form an index label on the item.

  • Publication number: 20160327377
    Abstract: An improved target label for shooting that includes at least one toner layer defining an image of a target, superimposed over a colored substrate having a color different from the toner layer, and an ink layer underlying the toner layer. When a projectile strikes and penetrates the target, the ink and toner layer displaces and scatters over an area surrounding the point of penetration, exposing the underlying colored substrate layer. The scattering of toner particles visually resembles gun powder and visually simulates damage over an area wider than the point of penetration by the projectile.

  • Patent number: 9334076
    Abstract: A label assembly for a customizable gift box. The label assembly includes a label and a back sheet having alignment tabs for aligning the box blank to the label. The alignment tabs are raised to expose adhesive material of the label. The box portion is aligned on the adhesive with the tabs, and then the partially adhered label can be fully exposed and wrapped around the box portion. The label can be used as a box bottom or top wrapping, or can form a top for a bottom box portion.

  • Patent number: 9205945
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for applying a label to an object. The apparatus includes a label assembly retaining device, a first object alignment element, and a second object alignment element movable with respect to the first object alignment element. The object alignment elements are movable to size the apparatus to the object, and desirably to form a chute through which the object can be lowered or dropped onto exposed adhesive of the label below.

  • Patent number: 9061484
    Abstract: A label assembly that includes a face sheet with a label shape defined by one or more tearable lines of separation, a back sheet adjacent to the face sheet, and an adhesive material disposed between the face sheet and the back sheet. The back sheet has a removable panel disposed over the label shape adhesive material and a registration structure that is or can be aligned with the label shape. The registration structure is adherable to an exposed portion of the adhesive material that is adjacent to a portion of the label shape.

  • Patent number: 8622883
    Abstract: A method of making a customizable gift box includes the step of providing a box blank including a box bottom and a plurality of sidewalls having adjacent lateral edges. Appendages are positioned to overlap and join the adjacent lateral edges of the adjacent sidewalls. Each appendage includes a first relatively narrow edge, a second relatively wider opposing edge, and S-shaped side edges joining the first and second edges. The configuration of the appendages facilitates their removal from a label assembly that includes a face sheet and a back sheet, the face sheet including a removable carrier portion, a removable label, and the removable appendages in the carrier sheet. Once the sidewalls of the box blank are properly anchored using the appendages, the label assembly can be aligned and the label can be adhered to the box blank.

  • Patent number: 8555943
    Abstract: A method and software for a consumer end user to print one or more, but generally less than all, labels of a label assembly without the need to run the label assembly though a printer multiple times. A boundary corresponding to the label is printed on a separate paper sheet to allow the label to be positioned for printing. The paper sheet with the label adhered within the boundary is run through a printer to print on the label. The printed label is removed from the paper sheet to applying to the intended object to be labeled. Software can be implemented on a data processor for printing the boundary and/or coordinating the label printing with the printed boundary.
