Our NCR Printing Process
NCR - No Carbon Required - paper is a modern, fuss-free substitute to carbon paper that allows your writing to be transferred onto a piece of paper underneath by applying pressure. This effect is created when pressure is applied to the front of the top sheet by a pen or pencil, the capsules bursts and the dyes are released. This is then transferred on to the bottom sheet which has a clay-based absorbent coating that produces the clear image when uncovered to the dye from the top sheet.
We either supply NCR paper in sets or pads. NCR sets generally consist of 2 or 3 sheets of paper which are glued along the top. This is ideal for one off use or those who want to distribute many sets easily.
NCR pads are collection of forms containing about 50 sets glued together. This is then backed by a cardboard back (900 micron grey board) which is used as a ‘shield’ to prevent more markings on more than one form at a time. The gluing apparatus that is used allows for the individual sets to be removed at a time without having to rip each individual piece of NCR paper out. Pads may be the commonest form of NCR. This makes it really convenient for those who travel and need to distribute them out. The hard back also makes it easy to write on.
We use lithographic printing press to create NCR forms. This technology is top of the line and allows for quick, high quality results. It is extremely cost effective to print this way, especially when large quantities of print are needed.
NCR pads can be used for delivery notes, receipt books, medical forms, invoices, purchase orders and expense forms. At Print Express, we will supply you with high quality NCR sets and pads that you can rely on and a guaranteed 48 hours turnaround.
