Carbonless Form Paper
In past days, to make an instant copy of a receipt or invoice, we had to place a piece of carbon paper between two papers. What was written on the top paper was impressed on the carbon paper and transferred to the bottom page. The carbon paper was messy and wore out with use. In addition, when it was no longer useful, it could not be recycled. In 1954, Appvion introduced a new, recyclable paper that functioned the same way, without the carbon paper – No Carbon Required.
Now, there are cheap carbonless papers available. But we don’t use them. Instead, we use authentic NCR paper made by the company that invented it and is still a leader in the field. We use NCR Paper because it gives a clean, legible impression that remains intense and does not face over time. With cheaper papers, you may not get the print quality for your form, nor the longevity of your copied pages.
Most importantly, these carbonless forms are environmentally friendly, free of harmful chemicals, and 100% recyclable.
Carbonless forms are suitable for any use where you need instant copies of handwritten documents. The sets of forms come in 2 or 3 parts (or more) depending on the number of copies required. Invoices, product or food orders, receipts, work orders, trucking logs, estimates, and other forms are commonly printed on NCR Paper.
Get your carbonless form as loose sets or in books with wrap around covers.
After printing, a special glue fuses the pages together to from a “set”. A set consists of a white and yellow (canary) page for 2 part or a white, yellow, and pink page for 3 part. These are standard paper colours. Next, we add sequential numbers, if desired. The number is stamped on the top page and transferred to the second page by the NCR paper. With that, loose sets are complete. You fill in loose form sets with a pen on a hard surface with enough pressure to transfer through the pages.
Finally, we add a cover to make a form book. Firstly, we perforate the forms, so a completed form can be torn out of the book. The cover wraps around the forms so that part of the cover can slide in under the top form. This creates a surface to write on and prevents your writing from transferring through more than one form at a time. 2 part form books have 50 sets per book. 3 part form books have 35 sets each.
