NCR / Carbonless Forms
Printing ink color: We offer the widest selection of options and through our calculators assign provide you with the most convenient option for your product.
Black Ink is the most popular, used frequently for basic forms.
Other Colors, including PMS options: Our clients often choose to use a corporate-approved color as the color of the ink. If the entire form will be printed in that single colored-ink, that would involve the selection of a PMS color
Full Color: The reason our clients use full color printed forms is that these forms help simplify the relationship with a client, preventing errors in the communication and ensuring that orders placed by your clients are complete. Full color ink allows to print anything in any color. It is important to keep in mind that the colors look different if they are printed on white paper, or on the 2nd copy of the carbonless paper, which is yellow-canary color. Your client usually keeps the top copy, which is white. The benefit of printing in full color is that it is possible to indicate through background color specific areas where information has to be reported, mark areas where signatures are mandatory, and to provide other clues as of how to process the form.
Carbonless paper is designed to produce instant copies of a document as it is being written on. It does not allow for a post-printed copy, but it allows to produce a copy in real time.
Carbonless copy paper is a type of custom coated paper where the pressure applied when writing on one sheet of paper generates an image on the next sheet.
Carbon copies used to require a carbon sheet in between the two sheets so that the marks would be reproduced on the next sheet.
The carbonless technology substituted the carbon copy sheet with a chemical coating on the bottom of the sheet on which you write, and another chemical applied on the sheet where the copy is to be placed.
