Toner Package

A prescored, flat, corrugated fiberboard package insert is erected, to form two generally rectangular toner cartridge receiving compartments, merely by manually pressing the opposite ends of the flat insert toward each other.

Insert 10 is formed of a rectangular strip of fiberboard which is pressure- scored at lines 11 and cut-scored at line 12. Scores 11 do not Pierce the fiberboard. As seen in Fig. 4, score 12 does cut the fiberboard' but leaves the opposite wall 20 intact, so that it forms a butted joint at Point 15 when erected, as seen in Fig. 3.

The fiberboard strip is overlapped and glued at 16. The cavities 17 and 18 of the erected insert are substantially filled by the xerographic toner cartridge (not shown). As a result, the filled insert is very rigid.

Fig. 1 is a top view of insert 10, showing it in the flat state. Fig. 2 shows insert 10 partially erect, as by manual pressure represented by arrows 19. Fig. 3 shows the insert fully erected. Fig. 4 is an enlarged view of the top portion of Fig. 2, and shows more clearly the nature of pressure-scores 11 and cut-score 12 which leaves the top layer 20 of fiberboard intact.
