What is NCR?
What Is NCR? NCR in the printing industry stands for No Carbon Required. This is a special type of paper that is the modern day replacement to the messy old fashioned blue carbon paper that was previously used to make duplicate pads. NCR paper is typically used in duplicate pads, where the user requires instant multiple copies of what is being written, for example, an invoice or receipt pad where the company keeps one copy, and the customer receives the other. NCR Paper is available in various pastel colours, the standard colours used are white/yellow/pink/green and blue and as long as the correct coated paper is used it can be collated in any order as required. NCR Paper can be printed on in black and white or full colour, this means that your pad or book can be personalised with your contact details, logo and any specific text, images or layout that you may require. Custom printed NCR printing is a great reminder of your business to your customer as a past invoice or receipt is where most people look when it’s time to re-order. Personalised NCR printing to match your business stationery will maintain consistency across your brand and will portray a professional look to your customers. If you require full stationery printing please get in touch and our dedicated team will be happy to help. .
What are the uses of NCR?
NCR paper is typically used in duplicate pads (known as NCR Pads in the printing industry), where the user requires instant multiple copies of what is being written. For example, an invoice or receipt pad where the company keeps one copy, and the customer receives the other. NCR pads are also commonly used as agreement forms whereby the customer signs and agrees to Terms & Conditions or similar, again allowing the company and customer to both keep a signed copy. NCR pads can be used for an unlimited amount of uses from invoice pads to accident forms and hazardous waste transfer forms and everything in between. If you have some custom requirements, please feel free to get in touch and on of our dedicated team will be happy to assist you. .
So how does NCR paper actually work?
It is a special type of coated paper designed to transfer information written on the front sheet onto the sheets beneath without the use of any electronics or blue carbon paper. Instead of inserting a special sheet in between the original and the intended copy, carbonless copy paper is a no mess at all alternative. NCR Paper has micro-encapsulated ink on the back side of the top sheet and a clay coating on the front side of the bottom sheet, any further sheets needed are coated with clay on top and dye on the bottom allowing for 2, 3, 4 or even more copies of the original sheet. When the top sheet is written on, the pressure from the pen/pencil (or dot-matrix printer) causes the micro-capsules to break and release their dye onto the clay coated side for a permanent mark. As the capsules are so small, the resulting duplicate is an accurate copy of what has been written above. .
