Continuous Form With Insert Pocket

A continuous journal form 1 has a number of sections, each of which is defined by section demarcation lines 2 and each of which is provided with a pocket 3. Simultaneous preparation of a particular journal section and a related form 4, such as a multicopy ticket, is accomplished by inserting the related form 4 in the section pocket 3 so that both may be printed concurrently.

An individual pocket 3 is established by overlapping the top layer 5 of the continuous form 1 for the pocket depth desired, as shown in the inset. This type of construction provides improved pocket strength and ensures a smooth pocket edge 6, which minimizes snagging of the ticket 4 during insertion.

Form stops 7 are provided to ensure accurate horizontal registration of an inserted form 4 with its related section. The vertical position of a pocket 3, established during its formation, assures accurate vertical registration of an inserted form 4. A line bracket 8, printed on the continuous journal form 1, provides a visual indication of the accuracy of alignment of the form 4.
