Abstract

Embodiments of the present invention are directed generally toward a printed temporary adhesive used to temporarily secure articles to a carrier, such as a label to a backing. Generally, a part with adhesive, like a label, is temporarily anchored to the carrier atop a silicone release coating. The part is held in place until the user removes the part for its intended application. In situations where silicone release is not used, a part may be held to the carrier with small ties created with nicks in the cutting tool around the edge of the part, such as perforations. When the part is removed from the carrier, the ties are broken and small sharp burrs remain along the edge, which can be a discomfort if the part is a wristband, or an aesthetic problem if the part is a label. Further, the part can tear during removal at one of the ties, destroying the part.

Printed Temporary Adhesive Anchors for Wristbands, Labels, or other die-cut parts

    Embodiments of the present invention are directed generally toward a printed temporary adhesive used to temporarily secure articles to a carrier, such as a label to a backing. Generally, a part with adhesive, like a label, is temporarily anchored to the carrier atop a silicone release coating. The part is held in place until the user removes the part for its intended application. In situations where silicone release is not used, a part may be held to the carrier with small ties created with nicks in the cutting tool around the edge of the part, such as perforations. When the part is removed from the carrier, the ties are broken and small sharp burrs remain along the edge, which can be a discomfort if the part is a wristband, or an aesthetic problem if the part is a label. Further, the part can tear during removal at one of the ties, destroying the part.

    Embodiments of the present invention secure a part to a carrier without requiring a silicone release coating and without requiring nicks or perforations. Embodiments may print small deposits of adhesive to the part in order to temporarily anchor the part to the carrier ply. The small deposits may be positioned according to the geometry of the part, but may provide a secure, temporary bond between the part and the carrier. The deposits are printed in a small enough size relative to the part that separation of the part from the carrie...
