Title (EN) STAMPS
(FR) TIMBRES
Abstract:
(EN) An improved stamp is disclosed which has the appearance of a conventional perforated edge stamp. The stamp has simulated edge perforations (1) produced by cutting a series of concave portions (5) and series of convex portions (7). The concave portions (5) smoothly terminate with the concave portions (7). The stamps can be produced on an elongate web (3) and be carried on a backing web (17) by a peel and stick adhesive (9). By cutting the simulated perforations (1) with the smoothly terminating concave, convex portions (5, 7) it is possible to strip unwanted skeleton material on which the stamp is printed from the backing web (17), thereby leaving the stamps in spaced apart separate relation on the backing web (17) for subsequent individual peeling therefrom. A method for producing the stamps and a cutting die for cutting the stamps is also disclosed.
(FR) On décrit un timbre amélioré dont l'apparence est la même que celle d'un timbre traditionnel à bords perforés. Le timbre possède des perforations périphériques simulées (1) obtenues par le découpage d'une série de parties concaves (5) et d'une série de parties convexes (7) dont les pointes sont arrondies. On peut produire les timbres sur une bande allongée (3) et ils peuvent être disposés sur une bande de séparation (17) à l'aide d'une substance d'adhésion non permanente (9). Lors du découpage des perforations simulées (1), on arrondit les extrémités des parties convexes (7) de sorte qu'il soit possible d'enlever l'ossature du matériau sur lequel sont imprimés les timbres, et donc que les timbres soient espacés et non contigus sur la bande de séparation (17) pour pouvoir s'en détacher le moment venu. On décrit également un procédé de production des timbres ainsi qu'un outillage destiné à les découper.
