What are NCR Books, Pads and Sets?

These are business forms of one type or another printed on carbonless paper and bound together in multiple parts or layers so anything you write on the top sheet is automatically transferred to the sheets below.

The most common types are Duplicate (2-part forms) and Triplicate (3-part forms) although 4 or 5-part forms can be made up.

NCR Types

NCR Books

NCR Books are made up of perforated sheets which are glued or stapled in to books of (usually) 50 multipart forms.

Because they're perforated you can tear out any sheet you wish along the perf whilst leaving the remaining sheets safely in the book.

NCR Pads

NCR Pads are almost exactly the same - the only difference between Pads and Books is that NCR Pads aren't perforated.

Once a form has been completed all the parts are removed from the pad and filed. You can't safely remove one part of a Set and leave others behind.

NCR Sets

NCR Sets are multiple sheets of carbonless paper glued along one edge with special adhesive which only binds the sheets comprising the Set.

If you have a 2-part Set it is only those two sheets which are glued together. If you have a 3-part Set then it is only those three sheets which are glued together and so on.

    When the customer must pay you

Design Tips

Supplying your own Artwork?
If you want to send in a Print Ready PDF here's some top tips for trouble free printing
  • Colours: save all colours as CMYK unless a spot/pantone colour is also specified. Colours left as RGB will be automatically converted to CMYK which will appear differently in print to what you see on screen.
  • Images: all logos / images should be a minimum of 300dpi - lower resolutions can appear pixelated (blurred).
  • Fonts: please embed all fonts or, covert all fonts to outline.
  • Bleed: please ensure you have included 3mm bleed all round.
