NCR print

We have had a few clients asking recently for a more thorough explanation of NCR printing. We deal with NCR printing all the time as it is our speciality and field of expertise.

NCR paper (Carbonless Carbon Sheets) is the alternative to carbon paper and is used to make a copy of an original handwritten or mechanically typed business document. This process was invented in 1952 by chemists Lowell Schleicher and Barry Green (they worked for the NCR Corporation) as a biodegradable stain-free alternative to traditional carbon paper.

Carbonless NCR copy paper works in a simple way - It consists of sheets of paper which are coated with micro encapsulated dye or ink and or a reactive clay.

The reverse side of the first NCR sheet is coated with a micro encapsulated dye. The lower most sheet is also coated on the top surface with a clay, which quickly reacts with the dye to form a permanent mark. Any sheets in-between are also coated with clay on top and dye on the reverse. When somebody writes on the NCR sheets, pressure from the point of the writing instrument makes the micro capsules break and spill dye. The capsules are very small and therefore the print obtained is very accurate and sharp. Before NCR paper was invented, the only option was to write documents more than once or use messy Carbon paper which was inserted in between the sheet being written on and the required copy below, often ending up with the user having blue fingers! The invention of NCR Paper made duplicating, triplicating and even quadruplicating hand written and printed documents easy, clean and altogether better.

NCR Paper is commonly used for Invoices, Job Sheets, Receipts, Time Sheets, Delivery Notes, Transfer Notes, Order Pads and other  business documents where duplication is needed. There are various colours of NCR paper available such as white, yellow, pink, green, blue. In most instances, white is the top NCR copy and subsequent colours are beneath dependant on the number of duplicated NCR pages required. For example; If you require two copies of a document being written/printed, you would generally have a white top part with one coloured second part below, this is referred to as 2-Part (or Duplicate NCR). For three copies you would have a white NCR top sheet with two coloured parts below. This is referred to as 3-Part NCR (or Triplicate NCR). For four copies you would have a white NCR top part and three coloured NCR parts below. This is called 4-Part NCR (or Quadruplicate).

NCR Paper is usually supplied to the end user collated into NCR Pads or alternatively NCR Books which are bound into sets using glue or staples. Loose NCR Sets are also widely used for use in dot matrix printers for example.

What is NCR Carbonless Paper?

NCR stands for 'No Carbon Required' paper and is used to transfer information filled in by pen or computer on the top sheet of NCR paper to NCR sets below. It is the ideal solution for businesses who use multi-sheet forms as part of their day to day operations. NCR sheets will accurately transfer written information applied on the top NCR sheet of paper, by pen to up to five NCR sheets underneath, without the use of old fashioned messy blue carbon paper. This type of NCR technology is available in several formats.

All our custom NCR printing is bespoke and includes all relevant business details such as the company logo, address, VAT details and banking information. As much information as you require can be included in your personalised printed forms.

NCR paper has eliminated the need for blue carbon paper (which can be messy to use). The acronym NCR stands for 'No Carbon Required' Carbonless forms. This is a specialist type of paper which is a replacement to blue carbon paper (that was previously used to make instant duplicates of a printed business form).

NCR Printing

NCR paper has no mess, the reverse of the first NCR sheet of paper is coated with a specialist coating micro encapsulated dye. The front of the second NCR sheet is coated with a clay which very quickly reacts with the dye to form a permanent mark on the NCR sheet. Any subsequent NCR sheets needed are also coated with the clay on top and dye on the bottom. This enables 2,3,4 copies of the original completed form.

When the top NCR sheet is written on, pressure of the pen or pencil makes the coating on the reverse of the top NCR sheet react with the coating on the face of the bottom NCR sheet, causing the micro capsules to react and break and spill the dye. As the capsules are so small, the print obtained on subsequent NCR sheets is very precise. NCR paper even works if you are using a dot matrix printer.

    It is intriguing to remind ourselves of the history behind NCR paper.

    The initial concept of transferring ink onto two separate sheets of paper, thus making two copies was made by two men (Englishman, Ralph Wedgewood and separately Italian, Pellegrino Turri). They were both trying to help blind people write letters, without making a mess when using pen and ink.

    Back in 1806 an English man Ralph Wedgewood designed a stylograph machine and to go with it, the very first invented carbon paper. This was a thin sheet of paper which was coated with wax and ink. This was placed between two sheets. Then horizontal metal wires were placed on the top sheet to be used as a guide for blind users. Ralph Wedgewood further developed his idea by making it possible to transfer information from one sheet to another. This idea was then used in businesses and private documents. A new system was the further developed in which the  writing on the first sheet of paper was written using a metal stylus. The subsequent pressure of this passed through the carbon paper and created an imprint of the writing onto the reverse side of the immediate sheet below. A new business was launched to sell this brand new invention to a range of businesses in England. Lots of people appreciated Ralph Wedgewood’s invention and the idea. Businessmen however still wanted their documents to be written using traditional pen and ink due to concerns about forgery. At this time carbon copies of any document had no legal standing in a court of law.

    In 1808 an Italian man called Pellegrino Turri invented a type writing machine which also used black carbon papers. This was to help his wife to write letters after she became blind. This invention was to go on and help in the development of type writers later in the century. Both of these men were instrumental in creating 'carbon paper' and the idea of transferring words from one sheet of paper to subsequent sheets. They also provided a new method of writing from a traditional pen, something which had been in use since the early 7th century.

    Later in 1823 the American Cyrus Dakin started producing a similar carbon paper to that of Ralph Wedgewood. He then started to sell it to the Associated Press. Businessman Lebbeus Rogers noticed the use of Dakin’s carbon paper and decided to set up his own company (L. H. Rogers and Company) in order to mass produce carbon paper. This was to be used in a new invention linked to this process, namely the type writer! Carbon paper was starting to take off in the business world. The transfer of information to make two, three or more copies of any important document was starting to be widely used by companies.

    It wasn't until back in 1953 that NCR carbonless paper (No Carbon Required) was then invented by 2 chemists named Lowell Schleicher and Barry Green. They both who worked at the National Cash Register. They had invented a brand new process which had eliminated the need for carbon paper (which was inserted between sheets). They had now created a system where ink was released from tiny bubbles inside its texture to be released when pressure was applied, most commonly by a pen. This system together with rapid advances in photo copying and information technology throughout the 20th Century, led to a decline in the old carbon paper system. Schleicher and Green’s invention of NCR paper back in 1953 revolutionised copying throughout the world and is in widespread use to this day.

    So how does NCR paper work? On the front of each sheet of NCR paper, (except for the top NCR sheet) is a special layer of re-active clay. On the back of each sheet of paper (except the bottom NCR sheet) are very small particles of ink. When pressure is made to the top sheet, usually with a pen, the ink and clay are squeezed together at the point where this force is exerted. This creates an outline on the top sheet of the NCR paper below. Today, multi part NCR pads, NCR books and NCR sets can be found in offices and businesses throughout the world. They are used in numerous situations to enable vendors and customers to keep instant copies of important documents.
