Title: ENVELOPE
Abstract:
An envelope (11), or envelope assembly (10), having a printable surface (16) and a removable panel (56). The removable panel (56) can be printed upon simultaneously while the envelope (11), or envelope assembly (10), is being printed upon. The envelope assembly (10) includes a conventional size sheet of material from which a tearable shape (20) can be removed. The removable panel (56) can be removed from the envelope (11), or envelope assembly (10), and adhered to another surface. A protective panel (50) and an adhesive coating (44) partially or totally cover one side of the removable panel (56). Furthermore, the protective panel (50) and the adhesive coating (44) can partially or totally cover one side of the envelope assembly (10). The protective panel (50) can have tearable lines of separation, such that a part of the protective panel (50) can be removed, thereby exposing the underlying adhesive (44). The protective panel (50) is preferably transparent or translucent, thereby enabling inspection of the contents of the envelope (11) from outside the envelope (11) once the removable panel (56) is removed. Additionally, a tab (39) can extend from a surface of the envelope for ease of identification and organization.
