SECTION I - CLASS DEFINITION

This class provides for certain special types of receptacles called Paperboard Boxes, File Folders, and Envelopes, and further provides for certain special types of articles called Postal Cards and Packets, and Wrappers for a mercantile unit.

(A) This is the class for envelope being defined as a substantially flat receptacle having two walls joined at their edges to form a pocket-like enclosure made of paper or paper substitute material, which is disclosed for enclosing a sheet-like article (e.g., document) while it is being transported (e.g., mailed).

(1) Note. An envelope is usually made of paper or paper-like material such as a flexible sheet of cellulosic or resinous material (e.g., plastic film).

(B) This is the class for file folders, a file folder being defined as a substantially flat receptacle having two walls connected at a bottom fold line, or to an expandable bottom wall; and which is disclosed for storing a sheet-like article (e.g., document) in a file cabinet.

(1) Note. A file folder can have closed ends, and may be expandable to a nonflat shape.
(2) Note. A file folder is usually placed in a file cabinet under a heading which facilitates retrieval.
(3) Note. A file folder may have the secondary function of holding an article while being transported.

(C) Wrappers- This is the class for wrappers, a wrapper being defined as a single-use covering having a structural element (e.g., fastener, seal, etc.) or a specified shape adapting it for wrapping a mercantile unit, and as being made of paper or paper-substitute material.

(1) Note. An example of a paper-substitute material is a flexible sheet of cellulosic or resinous material (e.g., plastic film).
(2) Note. A mercantile unit includes means in or by which goods (article or material) are displayed, protected, packaged or arranged in a particular manner to facilitate sale, transportation in commerce, use or storage.
(3) Note. A "single-use" covering is one which is discarded after use. (Lines With Other Classes and Within This Class for flexible protective article covers that are reusable).

(D) This is the class for paperboard boxes, a paperboard box being defined as a container made from material similar in composition to paper but thicker and stiffer in character, the container having a bottom portion for supporting content, peripheral wall structure for at least partially surrounding the content, and an access opening intended for the insertion or removal of content.

(1) Note. A box made of cellulosic or resinous material (e.g., plastic) which is similar in character to paperboard, and which is manipulated in the same manner as paperboard (e.g., folded from a blank) is included here. See Lines With Other Classes and Within This Class for containers not provided for elsewhere.

(E) This class also provides for postal cards, letter sheets, and packets, a post card being defined as a card peculiarly adapted carry information and be mailed by itself; a letter sheet being defined as a sheet peculiarly adapted to carry information, and is disclosed as being defined as a mailing sheet having an enclosure, the packet being peculiarly adapted to carry information and be mailed as a unit.

SECTION II - LINES WITH OTHER CLASSES AND WITHIN THIS CLASS

RELATION TO SUPPORT CLASSES

In general, as between the receptacle classes and the support classes, the receptacle classes provide for the combination of a receptacle plus support; except, the support classes will accept a claim to a support combined with a receptacle, wherein the claim (a) nominally recites the receptacle, or (b) recites only so much of the receptacle structure as is need to cooperate with the support, or (c) recites only those receptacle features which have been modified specifically to cooperate with the support.

Class 150, Purses, Wallets, and Protective Covers, provides for flexible protective article covers which are reusable.

Class 220, Receptacles, takes containers not provided for elsewhere.

For example, such means are found in subclasses 33+ and 303+ wherein the egress opening of a box is of lesser extent than the articles to be removed from the box. Thus, either the articles or the box opening must be deformed to permit removal. A box having an egress opening which is as big as an article to be removed remains in this Class 229, Envelopes, Wrappers, And Paperboard Boxes, even if the article must be lifted over a lip to be withdrawn. See the Class Definition of Class 221, Article Dispensing, section 1,C, for examples of dispensing features of that class type. This Class 229, Envelopes, Wrappers, and Paperboard Boxes, provides for boxes having an internal inclined ramp which merely utilizes gravity to urge articles toward the egress opening.
222Dispensing,   for a paperboard box combined with a dispensing feature, such as a discharge assistant, cutter or punch feature, quantity control means, collapsibility, or internal material guide means beyond a mere inclined ramp utilizing gravity. See the Class Definition of Class 222, Dispensing, for a recitation of dispensing features. Class 222, Dispensing subclasses 526+ and 566+ provide for a container having an external material flow guide (e.g., pour spout) which container is not made of paperboard. This Class 229, Envelopes, Wrappers, and Paperboard Boxes, provides for a paperboard box combined with an external material flow guide means (e.g., nozzle, spout, pouring lip, etc.) except when such guide means has a cutting or punch feature. Further, this class provides for an internal material guide means which is limited to utilizing the force of gravity to guide material contents (e.g., internal inclined ramp which utilizes gravity to urge contents toward an egress opening).
225Severing by Tearing or Breaking,   subclasses 48+ for a box having an integral severing means (e.g., serrated edge).
248Supports,   subclasses 127+ for a stand, particularly subclass 174 for a stand made of sheet material, and see Lines With Other Classes, above.
