- What Are NCR Products Used For?
NCR printing is ideal for any documents or forms that you might need to duplicate, triplicate or quadruplicate:
- Receipt book
- Order pads
- Delivery notes
- Consignment notes
- Waste transfer notes
- Accident book
- What Is NCR?
In the printing industry, NCR simply stands for No Carbon Required in reference to the old method of using ‘carbon paper’ to make a print copy. This method was a popular form of business stationery in the 1900s.
Today, making duplicates, triplicates and quadruplicates of a hand-written document has been simplified with carbonless transfer paper that can be printed in NCR sets, pads and books.
The back of the first sheet is coated with micro-encapsulated dye, while the front of the second sheet is coated with clay that instantly reacts to the pressure of a pen or pencil. Any subsequent sheets needed to make additional copies of the original sheet are coated in the same way (clay on the front, dye on the back).
- What Are NCR Sets?
Depending on how many copies you need to make, an NCR set is two, three or four sheets of NCR paper glued together along the top edge.
NCR loose sets can be printed in A6, A5, A4 and A3 sizes in black and white or full colour. If you opt for full colour, the top sheet will be white followed by a yellow sheet (2 part), a pink sheet (3 part) and a blue sheet (4 part).
Each set can be printed with personalised artwork that is custom-made for your business including your logo, address and specific terms and conditions (on the reverse side). The sheets can also be numbered, starting from any number.
- What Are NCR Pads?
An NCR pad collates 50 individual NCR loose sets which are then put into a padding press and glued to securely hold the individual sets in place.
Each used set must be removed and torn out before the next new set can be used. As a result, you can’t leave any of the duplicates in the pad – if you intend to keep them as records, they need to be stored elsewhere.
- What Are NCR Books?
An NCR book also contains 50 individual NCR loose sets, but they’re stapled together and spine taped. One sheet always remains in the book for your records while the others are perforated so they can easily be torn out.
