  • Patent number: 4523399
    Abstract: A display mount apparatus has a mounting board of predetermined width and a pad of sheet material having a predetermined width less than the predetermined width of the mounting board. A polymer binding extends around the mounting board and around all or a portion of the pad of sheet material to support the pad or sheet material to the mounting board. The polymer binding has a slight resiliency and may have imprinting thereon to indicate a day on a calendar, or the like. The method of making a display mount includes the steps of selecting a mounting board of predetermined width and a pad of sheet material of a predetermined width less than the width of the mounting board, binding the pad to the mounting board with a polymer strip extending around the mounting board and around at least a part of the sheets of the pad of sheet material.

  • Patent number: 4488366
    Abstract: A calender structure includes linking apparatus for displaying, in a linked and continuing fashion, time sequences shown on separate pages thereof. The individual pages are provided with specific hinging structures to permit simultaneous viewing of the last portion of one month and the first portion of a next month, for example, so that a continuing display is provided for linked time sequences notwithstanding the fact that such sequences are provided on separate pages. A single hinging operation results in the continuing display, thus avoiding the necessity for repeatedly turning between two calander pages at periods approaching an end of the month.

  • Patent number: 4319771
    Abstract: A programmable agenda which is adapted by the user for use during any month of any year. The agenda comprises a series of sequentially numbered pages, each number corresponding to a date of the month. Each page is inscribed with a row of seven boxes, the boxes on all pages being in registration when the pages are aligned one on top of another. The boxes further define seven columns extending through the pages in a direction perpendicular to the planes of the aligned pages. Each box in a given row bears the name of a different day of the week and the boxes in each column bear the names of the days of the week in sequence. When the pages are aligned one on top of another, a single hole punched through the pages in the correct box will appear on each page in the box bearing the name of the day on which the date of the month inscribed on that page falls.
