20100127490POSTAGE SHEET PRODUCT - A printable postage sheet includes a plurality of substantially equally sized preprinted postage labels arranged in a matrix of n rows by m columns, where n and m are integers. The plurality of preprinted postage labels are symmetrically arranged in the printable postage sheet with respect to a first axis and a second axis perpendicular to the first axis. Preprinted indicia on each of the preprinted postage labels are preprinted on generally the same location on all of the preprinted postage labels. The preprinted indicia are all oriented in a same orientation relative to the sheet. A printable area of each preprinted postage label is positioned on the label such that when indicia are printed on one or more of the preprinted postage labels, the indicia are positioned within the printable area irrespective of a right side up or upside down feeding orientation of the printable postage sheet into a printer.05-27-2010
20080265560Postage stamp with stored information - A postage stamp includes digital information that can be played by the recipient of the letter or parcel bearing the stamp.

20090243277Stamp, envelope and meter in sticking, printing and cancelling - The present invention is directed to a system for thermally cancelling postage and a thermally cancellable picture postage stamp for use therein. A picture postage stamp is disclosed wherein the design and postage information are affixed on thermally reactive paper. Alternatively, the indicia may be comprised of thermally reactive inks or dyes. Cancelling a thermally cancellable picture postage stamp is accomplished with a heat source such as a cancellation write head. Hidden text of code can be embedded in the thermal paper and the cancellation mark can be any indicia or information that can be generated by a thermal print head. Cancelling the thermally cancellable picture postage stamp may also be accomplished manually with a pointed instrument or any semi hard edge such as a pen cap, ring or fingernail. Cancellation of the present thermally cancellable picture postage stamp can be further verified by placing the stamp on a presently described envelope or mailer having a thermally reactive area for receiving postage and cancellations. Using an envelope with a thermally reactive area allows for thermal cancellations that extend beyond the boundary of the thermally cancellable picture postage stamp, thereby effectively matching the thermal cancellation of the stamp to the cancellation on the envelope. The present thermally cancellable picture postage stamps may be manually applied using a cancellation gun that simultaneously applies postage and cancels same on a mailer.10-01-2009
20110133442METHOD FOR INCREASING ADHESION BETWEEN A SECURITY ELEMENT AND A FIBROUS SHEET MATERIAL - A method for increasing adhesion between a security element (e.g., a security strip or band) and a fibrous sheet material such as paper is provided. Also provided by way of this invention is a security element laminated to one or more activatable adhesive films, a fibrous sheet material having such a laminated structure contained on or within a surface thereof, or at least partially embedded therein, and a document (e.g., a security document such as a banknote) made from such a fibrous sheet material.06-09-2011
20100181753Intaglio Printing Inks - The present invention relates to printing inks for the intaglio printing process, also referred to as engraved steel die printing process. In particular, oxidatively curing inks comprising a combination of fusible wax and a UV curing binder component are disclosed. These inks can be printed on a standard printing press, and, through a short UV irradiation after printing, allow to significantly reduce or eliminate the undesired set-off which can occur after printing and stacking the printed sheets. Using the inks of the present invention results in less set-off contaminated printed sheets, allowing for a higher pile-stacking of the printed good, for the use of increased engraving depths, of a more challenging intaglio design, and for the printing on less porous substrates, whilst enabling the printing on a standard printing press, and offering the possibility of using a lower printing plate temperature.07-22-2010

20110227325All - Day Sports Playbook - a) The method of making these playbooks would depend on the sports league marketing/printing department. I would sell the idea and a sample coupon booklet along with coupon verbiage and their art department (or their outside contractor) would design the perforated coupon booklet (which will be color coordinated with their team colors and logo) and placed out on display at sports, department, and card stores all year long. Once their design template is created, it will be easy for them to produce each year by just changing the year. This is a new gift idea and there are currently no sports playbooks in stores. This new and unique idea is aimed at pleasing the sports enthusiast in a very satisfying way by eliminating stress and tension on game day and so the enthusiast can sit back and enjoy the sporting event.09-22-2011
