  • Patent number: 5904373
    Abstract: The jacket has flexible front and rear walls which are connected together along the bottom and one side of the jacket, but which are separable from each other along the top and other side of the jacket to enable a document to be inserted between, or to be removed from between the front and rear walls. The rear wall has secured to the back thereof two, flexible magnetic strips for removably securing the upper and lower ends of the back wall against the face of a ferrous metal panel. The front wall, which is transparent extends slightly beyond the back wall adjacent the top and other side of the jacket and has secured to the back thereof along its upper edge another flexible magnetic strip which releasably engages the face of the supporting panel to hold the jacket closed when mounted on the panel.

  • Patent number: 5840355
    Abstract: A confectionery product that also functions to transmit a greeting or a message to a person receiving the product. The product comprises a rectangular bar of chocolate candy having a top surface provided with a cavity. A wrapper enclosing the candy bar and extending into the cavity is in turn encircled by a tubular heat shrink member. The heat shrink member is in firm engagement with the wrapper that provides access to the cavity so that the greeting card can be personalized and then inserted in one end of the heat shrink member and pushed to a position in the cavity. The resulting product can then be displayed in a flower arrangement or used by itself.

  • Patent number: 5713147
    Abstract: A transparent globular photograph holder is provided herein. The holder consists of a pair of transparent semiglobular members--each such complementary transparent member consisting of a hollow semiglobe having a flat, planar, circular face, said flat, planar, circular face constituting an inner frame disc. Each such inner frame disc consists of an integrally-formed inner circular ring for co-operating together to provide back-up rings for holding two photographs, back-to-back, for two-way viewing. The hollow semiglobes are being selectively secured together at a selected area of their respective flat, planar, circular faces by hinge means. They also are releaseably temporarily locked together at another area of their respective flat, planar, circular faces by means of a flexible clasp on one of said inner frame discs which co-operates with a retaining slot in said other inner frame disc: means are provided for hanging the transparent globular photograph holder.

  • Patent number: 5569503
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an adhesive coated mounting substrate with a clear plastic cover sheet that may be used for mounting and displaying relatively flat items. These mounting substrates are especially useful as pages in photograph albums. The novel advantage of the mounting substrate of the present invention is accomplished by coating the substrate with an adhesive which includes an aliphatic alkene glycol in its liquid phase and an aliphatic acrylate elastomer in its solid phase. A particularly suited use for the coated mounting substrate of the present invention is in the photographic album page art. The solid phase of the adhesive used in the production of the coated substrate of the present invention is comprised of an aliphitic alkene elastomer and an inorganic filler. The liquid phase is comprised of an aliphatic alkene glycol, water and an inorganic hydroxide pH adjuster.
