Document Holder

The primary purpose of this document carrier is to provide a means of transporting documents shorter than a predetermined length through a document processor.

The new carrier is basically a white paper rectangle 1 of predetermined width and length. A thin polystyrene partial cover (window) 3 is attached by two glued edges 5 and 7, providing a means of holding a short document in place, and also providing for easy insertion and removal. The polystyrene window is desired to be narrower than the documents so that the right edge of most documents will remain accessible outside of the window.

A key feature of this document carrier is a printed reference mark 9, located on the left-hand margin of the carrier. This mark is located from the top glue line of the carrier and provides a quick, "eyeball" reference of all short tapes selected for insertion. In use, the machine operator holds a short tape against the envelope with one end at the top glue line 5. If the other end does not reach the reference mark 9, then the document should be placed in the carrier for processing. The reference mark 9 is located outside of the scanning field of optical reading devices, to prevent the reader from viewing the mark through the background that could occur when thin paper tapes are copied.
