    What is NCR? We Explain all about NCR 'No Carbon Required' Printing.

    NCR (No Carbon Required -  to give it its full name) is multiple sheets of specialised paper which are coated with carbon to either the front, the back or both sides. The carbon then reacts when writing pressure is applied to the top sheet, allowing the transfer of the image through to the subsequent NCR sheets below.

    NCR Sets

    Loose sets as they are also known are the least expensive way of manufacture. Comprising of 2, 3, 4 or sometimes 5 parts, all of the NCR parts are glued together to make one complete, individual set. These NCR sets can then be Numbered, Hole Punched and Perforated if required.

    NCR Pads

    NCR Pads are usually 50 sets (loose sets) collated together, comprising of 2, 3, 4 or sometimes 5 parts, generally in 50`s, and then glued together into pad form. The NCR Pads are supplied with a grey board backing card, and then a writing shield that is inserted under a complete set, to stop the transfer of information  travelling through multiple sets in one go. The writing shield is a piece of card that is either supplied loose or in wraparound form (attached to the back of the NCR pad). The sets these can also be Numbered, Hole Punched and Perforated if required.

    NCR Books

    NCR Books are usually 50 sets (loose sets) collated together, comprising of 2, 3, 4 or sometimes 5 parts, generally in 50`s, and then stitched into book form. All sheets within the book are perforated, stapled and bound together. Each book has a stub, if you decide to remove certain NCR sheets from the book, they will tear out from the stub. NCR books are supplied with a grey board backing card, and then a writing shield that is inserted under a complete set, to stop the transfer of information from “travelling” through multiple sets in one go. The writing shield is a piece of card that is either supplied loose or in wraparound form (attached to the back of the NCR book). Books are supplied with Covers that can be printed if you so wish. The sets can also be Numbered, Hole Punched and Perforated if required.

      THE HISTORY OF NCR CARBONLESS PAPER

      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.

      Printing presses

      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.

                  What is NCR Printing?

We offer NCR Printing in a range of options for creating invoices and receipts while on the move.

                  An NCR Form is a multi-part form constructed from carbonless copy paper (also known as NCR paper). NCR Forms allow multiple copies of a handwritten or impact printed document to be created simultaneously. NCR forms can be created for use as handwritten forms, which are to be filled out manually with an ink pen.

                  How specialist carbonless paper works? With carbonless paper, the copy is produced by a chemical reaction between two different coatings which are generally applied to the front and back of a base NCR paper. This colour reaction is caused by pressure (a typewriter, a dot-matrix printer or writing instrument).

                        THE HISTORY OF NCR CARBONLESS PAPER

                        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.

                        Printing presses

                        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.

                        Carbon Copy Pads

                        What is NCR Printing?

                        The meaning of NCR is No Carbon Required. Basically, it's paper that can be used for the likes of personalised duplicate invoice books, but carbonless unlike the good old days with the need for messy blue carbon paper. We offer NCR Printing in a range of options for creating invoices and receipts while on the move.

                        Customised NCR Invoice Books - Custom Printed NCR Pads

                        Customised Invoice, Receipt, Order Pads etc In All Sizes - A4/A5/A6/DL - Fast Delivery. Sequential Numbering Available - Urgent Orders Welcome - Fast, Nationwide Delivery.

                        An NCR Form is a multi-part form constructed from carbonless copy paper (also known as NCR paper). NCR Forms allow multiple copies of a handwritten or impact printed document to be created simultaneously. NCR forms can be created for use as handwritten forms, which are to be filled out manually with an ink pen.

                        How specialist carbonless paper works? With carbonless paper, the copy is produced by a chemical reaction between two different coatings which are generally applied to the front and back of a base NCR paper. This colour reaction is caused by pressure (a typewriter, a dot-matrix printer or writing instrument).

                              THE HISTORY OF NCR CARBONLESS PAPER

                              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.

                              What is NCR Printing?

                              The meaning of NCR is No Carbon Required. Basically, it's paper that can be used for the likes of personalised duplicate invoice books, but carbonless unlike the good old days with the need for messy blue carbon paper.

                              An NCR Form is a multi-part form constructed from carbonless copy paper (also known as NCR paper). NCR Forms allow multiple copies of a handwritten or impact printed document to be created simultaneously. NCR forms can be created for use as handwritten forms, which are to be filled out manually with an ink pen.

                              How specialist carbonless paper works? With carbonless paper, the copy is produced by a chemical reaction between two different coatings which are generally applied to the front and back of a base NCR paper. This colour reaction is caused by pressure (a typewriter, a dot-matrix printer or writing instrument).

                                    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.

                                    Customised NCR Expense Sets (or NCR Business Expense sets) are an excellent way of recording and logging expenses for your business. They show legitimate expenses that staff have incurred allowing you to review and make approval of business expenditure. NCR (No Carbon Required) expense sets also have all the required information such as the date, activity that the expense has arisen against which in turn allows your business manager to keep up to date on their running accounts.

                                    Each order we produce is fully customised to your businesses particular requirements and made to order.

                                    An expense report is commonly used for recording business travel expenses such as transport, food, lodgings, and conference fees for instance. An expense report can also be used to document any business expense in which a particular employee needs to be financially reimbursed. Mileage expenses sets are another popular business tool for keeping account of mileage and their particular allowance. Our custom and personalised mileage expense sets are used to keep a record of expense on vehicle travel. These carbonless NCR Sets allow you to easily retain a copy of this bespoke form for your own record and for future claims during the tax year. As they are NCR multi part expense forms, they are easily duplicated allowing copies to be provided to all parties and keeping everyone informed. Usually NCR carbonless expense forms are for internal use so would be printed in black print only, however, if you wish for them to be printed full colour to suit your branding, please ask for a FREE quote.

                                    Love print

                                    We print your custom design onto a specialist paper called NCR. We then produce your job to your exact requirements.

                                    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.

                                    Completed NCR 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.

                                      THE HISTORY OF NCR CARBONLESS PAPER

                                      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.

                                      Printing press

                                      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.
