NCR (No Carbon Required) Duplicating Sets are one of our particular specialities. They are the quick and simple solution when several copies of a document are required. The range of applications is endless, from Delivery Notes to Restaurant Order Pads or Sales Invoices.
An NCR Set consists of at least two sheets. They rely on pressure to transfer an image from the top sheet to those underneath. They can be used with a ball point pen or using an impact printer such as a Dot Matrix or Daisy Wheel.
The amount of pressure required to form an adequate copy on the bottom sheet increases with the number of sheets in the set. For this reason sets should not normally be more than five sheets.
Sheets are available in the following colours: Blue, Pink, Green, Yellow and White.
A 170gm white card bottom sheet can be specified if required. This is particularly useful in applications where loose sets are needed but flat surfaces for writing are difficult to find! NCR Sets are supplied ready to use as loose individual sets as standard.
Please note: NCR Sets do not work with Ink Jet or Laser Printers.
It is possible to specify numerous finishing options to complete your NCR.
We would normally perforate all sections of your set except the bottom sheet. If you also require the bottom sheet to be perforated please specify this at the time of ordering.
Where perforations are specified together with padding the pads are wire stitched (stapled) so that the bottom sheets are securely retained in the pad. Please specify which edge of the set is to be perforated (top, left side, etc.).
Numbering (crash through set)
Numbers are applied by impact on the top sheet which transfers to the other sheets using the self impression property of the set. Please specify your required start number, any prefix you require and where you would like your number to be positioned on the sheet.
A number of sets are made into a pad for ease of use. Pads of 100 sets are practical for two part sets. Three part sets and above are normally padded in 50's. Please specify which edge of the sheet is to be glued (top or left hand side). Each pad is provided with a loose card to be placed under each set before use. Where padding and perforation is specified, the Pads are stapled as well as glued.
Please specify where you would like your hole (holes) to be positioned and what diameter of hole you require (3mm, 3.5mm or 6mm diameter).
