NCR forms, also known as carbonless forms or no-carbon-required forms, are specialized types of paper that allow multiple copies of a document to be created without the need for carbon paper. These forms consist of multiple sheets of paper coated with micro-encapsulated dye or ink on the back. When pressure is applied on the top sheet, the microcapsules rupture, releasing the dye or ink and creating an instant copy on the subsequent sheet(s) beneath it.
The purpose of NCR forms is to simplify the process of creating multiple copies of a document simultaneously. They are commonly used for various business purposes, such as order forms, invoices, receipts, delivery notes, contracts, and other documents that require multiple copies for distribution or record-keeping. NCR forms eliminate the need for manual carbon paper insertion and ensure consistent and legible copies without smudging or carbon paper mess.
These forms typically come in sets of two or more sheets, commonly color-coded, such as white (original), yellow (first copy), pink (second copy), and so on. Each sheet in the set is designed to transfer the writing or printing onto the subsequent sheet(s), creating identical copies.
NCR forms offer convenience, efficiency, and accuracy in documentation, making them widely used in various industries, including retail, finance, logistics, and service-oriented businesses.
NCR’s start at two sheets, and go as high as five, in the following order:
