Multi Part Forms
The Digital Document Store offers a wide range of custom multi part, carbonless form options to fit a variety of business needs.
What is an NCR form?
NCR (No Carbon Required) or carbonless forms, have eliminated the need for carbon paper between sheets to create multiple copies of the same form. The paper is chemically treated* to transfer the impression from the first page to the subsequent pages with very little pressure.
*For you inquisitive types, the bottom side of carbonless NCR paper is coated with micro-encapsulated dye. When the top sheet is written on, the pressure causes the micro-capsules to break and release the dye. The top of the second sheet is coated with clay that reacts with the dye to form a permanent mark. How cool is that?!
NCR forms are commonly used for invoices, statements, purchase orders, contracts, work orders, applications and receipts where multiple copies are needed.
Common NCR sizes
Standard sizes for NCR forms are half page (5.5″ x 8.5″), full page (8.5″ x 11″) and legal (8.5″ x 14″), although custom sizes can be ordered to meet your specific need.
Color sequence of multi part NCR forms
NCR forms are available in a number of pages, referred to as parts, ranging from 2 to 6 parts depending upon your need.
- 2-part carbonless: white/yellow
- 3-part carbonless: white/yellow/pink
- 4-part carbonless: white/yellow/pink/gold
Carbonless forms can be printed on one side or two. Typically the front side includes the company logo and contact information as well as the form. The back side can be used for legal information or detailed instructions. NCR forms can be printed in black only or full-color.
