Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a card with an attachment structure for a disc, and more particularly to a card whose body is facilitated with a structure for attaching a disc.

2. Description of Related Art

A traditional market available greeting card, general invitation card and wedding invitation card and even a advertisement paper, name card and postal card are all plane cards on which a scenery or picture is formed. A user can only print or write words wanted to express on the surface of the card and cannot express them with another way such as video/audio recording which can allow the other party to understand the feeling and ideas that the user wants to express.

However, storing designed and edited music and image in a disc in today's technology of video/audio digitization is not difficult any more.

Therefore, how to obtain a disc on the surface of the card to allow a consumer to show his idea and feeling by the way of a video/audio disc in addition to word expression is a major topic of the present invention.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Therefore, the main object of the present invention is to provide a card with an attachment structure for a disc, causing a disc to be a part of a card by using an attachment structure on the card for loading the disc so that a user can show his own idea and feeling by arranging the card and video/audio disc into pairs.

For attaining to the object mentioned above according to the present invention, a card with an attachment structure for a card of a preferred embodiment according to the present invention comprises:

    • a card;
    • an attachment structure, disposed on the surface of the card, used for loading a disc on the surface of the card to cause the card and the disc to be united into one body.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

Please refer to FIGS 1, 2 and 3. An attachment structure 30 can be a type of raised column 31; the raised column can be formed as a multilateral column such as a circular column, pentagonal column, star column, as FIG. 3 shows. When a user wants to fix a disc 20 on the card 10, he only needs to align a central round hole 21 of the disc 20 with the raised column 31 and press the disc 20 down to cause the central round hole 21 to be stuck around the circumference of the raised column 31, and then, the fixing of the disc 20 can be completed, as FIG. 2 shows. Besides, all types of patterns can be designed on the surface of the disc 20 to match up with the integral design of the card 10 to attain to the integral vision effect for the disc 20 and the card 10. When the user opens the card 10, he can soon view the written words in the card 10; when he wants to view the contents of the disc 20, he only needs to take the disc 20 out of the card 10 to cause the central hole 21 of the disc 20 to be separated from the circumference of the raised column 31. And then, the disc 10 is taken down successfully and put into a drive for viewing. Therefore, the contents burned in the disc 20 can be matched with the mailing purpose to input corresponding image or music. Thereby, the user can show his idea or feeling not only through the words but also by the way of the video/audio disc 20. The disc 20 mentioned above can be a 12 cm, 8 cm or name card type disc, and can be cut into any versatile type depending on needs.

Please refer to FIG. 4. The raised column 31 can be made into one body with the card 10 to allow the raised column 31 to be more matched with the printing pattern on the surface of the card 10 so that an entirety design effect can be attained. Please refer to FIG. 5. The attachment structure 30 can be a bag 32 stuck on the card 10 by an adhesive 10 depending on needs. The disc 20 is allowed not to damage or bruise while being placed into the bag. If the disc 20 wants to be further stored, the bag 32 can be detached from the surface of the card 10 and then the disc 20 can be separated from the card 10 easily.
