Envelope Card

The envelope type card which is used, for example, as a collection card, comprises a pre-numbered and pre-punched stub section 10 and an envelope section 11. A tear score line 12 separates the stub and envelope sections and the envelope section is provided with a fold score 13. An adhesive border 14 is provided around the edge of the envelope section.

A typical use of the card is as a rent collection envelope. Each person receives a year's supply of collection cards. Each week a card is selected, the rent sealed in the envelope section of the card, the stub punched or marked with the amount of the rent and handed to a collector. The latter opens the envelope, checks the amount, tears off the stub and disposes of the envelope. The stubs may be sorted and the weekly collection credited to each person to provide an accurate weekly, quarterly or yearly financial report.
