20mm. (Cl-3H8) This invention relates to picture carrying mailing cards.
One object of my invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive mailing card which is adapted to carry a picture in the form of a lantern slide. Another object of my invention is to provide a mailingcard lantern slide carrier which forms a unitary structure and from which the lantern slide may be readily removed, if desired. Other objects will appear from the following specification, the novel features be particularly pointed out in the claims at the end thereof.
Coming now to the drawing in which like reference numerals denote like parts throughout:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a mailing card showing a preferred embodiment of my invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged section on line 2-2 of Fig. l, but with the parts shown in an exaggerated thickness.
with the each other, in
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a'second embodiment of my invention showing readily removing the lantern slide.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a lantern slide removed from the card.
In accordance with my invention, I provide a mailing card lantern slide holder which prefer- .cardboard 5 having a rectangular cut-out portion 2 which is in the form of a frame and having a space 3 pmvided for the name and address and a space 6 provided for -a stamp, as is usual in picture post-cards. The reverse side of the card may be provided with a space 5 on which a message may be-writ ten.
In the cut-out portion 2, I mount a lantern slide frame 6 carrying a light transmitting picture l. The frame 6 is of substantially the same a means for thickness as the card i, and the frame is held in place in the cut-out by means oi'tw'o sheets of transparent sheeting \8 and 9, which are firmly attached around the edges of the cut-out 2 to the card member l.
Such a card can be-used as a picture post-card by holding the card in front of a diiiused light source or, if desired, a knife K can be used and run around the edge of the lantern slide to remove it from its seat in the card i. This can readily be done because of the transparent sheeting 8 and 9 which permits the border of the lantern slide 6 and the edge of the card i to be readily seen, particularly if the lantern slide is of a contrasting color to that of the card.
I have found that the card i may convenframes of several layers of The transparent sheeting 8 and 9 are preferiently be made from a cardboard stock which is The resulting card,
this picture may be about .012" thick, because a lantern slide frame fllm picture carrying element in place can readily be made of approximately the same thickness. Thus, when the lantern slide is seated in the cut-out 2. as indicated in Fig. 2, the side walls of the card and the side walls of the lantern slide mount are approximately flush with which position they are held bythe sheets of transparent material 8 and 9.
I have found that such material can be obtained which is entirely suitable and which is strong, having a thickness of approximately threevfourths of a thousandth of an inch in thickness so that'this does not add appreciably to the total thickness of the card over that area which is covered by this transparent sheeting. therefore, has substantially the same thickness portion of the card is preferably covered by the sheeting. It is desirable to leave those portions of the card onwhich writing is to occur, free from sheeting because such transparent material takes ink only with difficulty. It is desirable to provide this sheeting of the vWaterproof or at least of the water-resisting variety so that the film picture carrying element may be adequately protected against moisture while the cards are on display and while they pass through the mails.
The thin cellulosic sheeting is quite strong and it is only with some dimculty that the lantern slide 6 canbe removed from the card i-unless a sharp, pointed instrument, such as a knife K is used, in which case the material can be readily severed so that the lantern slide may be separated from the card for projecting in known types of apparatus. If desired, the picture may be left in place in the card, as light-transmitting pictures have a much greater brilliancy than the usual type of picture printed on an opaque, light-reflecting medium.
These cards y be used to transmit lantern slides through the mail, and they may contain a picture in the so-called black and white, or,
tinted or toned, or, if desired, a color photograph made by any of the known processes maybe carried by the lantern slide frame.
The lantern slide frame 6 may be of any known type, although it is my intention to make these relatively stifi paper.

thereby releasing the lantern slide frame from the outer frame. F
