What is NCR?
NCR stands for No Carbon Required, also known as carbonless copy paper (CCP), or non-carbon copy paper. NCR or No Carbon required paper is printed on a offset press with oil based inks, water and printing plates to create and Image (could be text or graphic) so a user does not have to rewrite or design a form every time he or she needs to record information from their client. Once the paper is printed it’s set on the shelf to dry. Later it’s glued in sets, so a 2 part form will only have two pages and a 5 part form will have 5 pages. Once the gluing process is complete the forms is crash numbered if sequence numbering is required. Once numbering is completed the sets are counted and booked. Most common booking setup’s are 25 sets to a book, 30 sets to a book and 50 sets to a book.
