Carbonless Books Printing
Carbonless Books Printing
Carbonless books consists of sheets of paper that are coated with micro-encapsulated dye or ink and/or a reactive clay. The back of the first sheet is coated with micro-encapsulated dye. The lowermost sheet is coated on the top surface with a clay that quickly reacts with the dye to form a permanent mark. Any intermediate sheets are coated with clay on top and dye on the bottom.
When someone writes on the sheets, the pressure from the point of the writing instrument causes the micro-capsules to break and spill their dye. Since the capsules are so small, the print obtained is very accurate. Similarly, the paper can be used in dot-matrix and impact printers, where the striking head releases dye to interact with the clay.
Carbonless books paper was also available in a self-contained version that had both the ink and the clay on the same side of the paper.
Carbonless Books use Carbonless copy paper, commonly known in the printing industry as NCR paper, was first produced by the NCR Corporation. Before this the usual options were to write documents more than once or use carbon paper which was inserted between the sheet being written on and the copy; often the user’s fingers were stained. The invention of NCR paper made making multiples of hand-written and printed documents easy and clean.
The paper is commonly used in Carbonless Books for invoices, receipts and any other document where duplication is required. There is an array of colors available for the copy sheet, such as white, yellow, pink, green and blue. In most instances, white is the top copy and subsequent colors are beneath dependent on the number of duplicated pages required. For example, two copies of document being made, the papers would have a white top sheet and one colored second sheet below, which would be called two-part or duplicate. For three copies, there would be a white top part and two colored parts below, called three-part or triplicate. Four copies would be called four-part or quadruplicate. Stacks of ten or more copies were not unknown.
Carbonless copy paper is usually supplied to the end user collated in pads or books which are bound into sets using glue or staples, with loose sets or continuous stationery also being widely used for use in printers.
