Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] (a) Field of the Invention

[0002] The present invention is related to a storage packing pocket, and more particularly to one

[0003] (b) Description of the Prior Art

[0004] In the information age, user manuals, warranties, diskettes, CD and other accessories usually are put into a see-through PVC bag delivered together with electric home appliances and computer peripherals. Eventually, most of the PVC bags wind up in garbage disposal sites.

[0005] This creates a very serious problem and it is not only an environmental issue, but also a waste of resources since consumer has to purchase extra bags for the storage of data sheets and accessories. That is, to satisfy the consumer's needs, the factory has to produce storage bags, a waste of resources strictly being originated from the fact that the original packing bags finally turn into refuses. Should we be able to convert the original packing bag into a storage bag, we solve the problems of refuses and subsequent consumption of resources. Whereas the consumer no longer needs to buy extra storage bags, there will be no production of the storage bag. Lower demands means less consumption of resources, less refuses, and thus less pollution to the environment.

[0006] The present invention designed to cope with the problems is indeed a significant contribution to both of the trade and the environment.

[0007] How to store all those accessories and data sheets coming along with the computer and other electric appliances has become a nightmare to modem people. How to deal with all those warranties, user manuals, and CD piling up around us?

[0008] 1. Put all of them into a box and throw it away? Of course not! Warranties and user manuals concerns your right to call for warranty service.

[0009] 2. So, just by you some bags to put each sheet and/or pamphlet nice and neat into the bag. But the problem is that most of the bags are made with their open ends on the upper edge. The sheet or pamphlet just slips out of the bag if you are not holding it at the right angle, or if the bag is simply caught among piles of documents on the desk. This becomes a nasty thing and no one ever thinks up something to make it disappear. Naturally, you may wonder if the open can be closed up, it would be a good idea.

[0010] 3. Unless you are using a binder, otherwise, it is very easy for you to forget to put the manual or warranty back into the bag. When the time comes, you will spend much time to find it again. Therefore, it is recommended that you should use a binder for easy maintenance and carrying along.

[0011] Even all the problems described above are solved and there is the design of a storage bag, then what happens to those original bags that are attached to the computer or electric appliance? All those original bags will immediately turn into refuses. Imagine that how many original PVC bags have been produced each year? The answer will certainly surprise us. The solution would be simple if we could make the original bag also serves its purpose as a storage pocket. You can save your money and help the great environmental work of refuse reduction. That's two birds at one stone.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0012] The primary purpose of the present invention is to provide a multi-purpose storage packing pocket for preservation of data sheets and reducing the problem of refuses generated by the packing bags. To achieve the purpose, a pocket has its upper, lower and outer edges sealed, and has its inner edge opened to define an accommodation area in a size to accommodate data sheets including books and manuals, as well as objects including diskette . . . etc. A folding area in proper width is provided along the opening side of the accommodation area, a folding line is provided on the folding area, a line of multiple perforations is provided on the outer edge of folding area, or the outer side of the accommodation area, or each on both sides of the folding line so that when the folding area is folded up against the folding line, the line of multiple perforations are bound in a folder, or the pocket may be bound inside the folder by using the lines of perforations provided to the outer edge of the folding are and that on the outer side of the accommodation area; furthermore, a self-adhesive tape is provided on the outer edge of the folding area, or on the outer edge of the line of perforations to the folding area, and the folding area of the pocket is attached onto the surface of the accommodation area or the inner edge of the folding area by means of the self-adhesive tape for the pocket to be ready for use either in opened or closed status to accommodate data sheets including books and manuals, as well as objects including diskette . . . etc. If binding is desired, the lines of perforations along the outer edge of the folding area and the outer side of the accommodation area are bound in the folder; or align those lines of perforations on both sides of the folding line for the pocket to be bound in the folder to achieve the storage of data sheets.
