Description

NCR Forms provide the functionality of carbon paper without the carbon paper. They are available in 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6-part colored sets to clearly identify each page of the form. NCR Forms come padded in collated sets preprinted in either 1 or 2 colors. Numbering can be added if you prefer or when set serialized forms are required.

1&2 Color printing does not allow for bleeds. For more information, see the "File Setup" tab.

Recommendations

The most common order options are 8.5" x 11" and 4.5" x 5.5" on NCR Paper with 2 parts. NCR Forms are frequently printed in both 1 and 2 color, including full color, on the front and usually just black on the back (1/1, 2/1). They are most often padded (glued) on the top and typically numbered.

For orders with 1 or 2 color printing, including Pantone colors, please check out our 1 & 2 Color Letterhead.

Marketing Tips

NCR Forms are an efficient way to provide multiple color-coded copies of a single document that includes handwritten or typed information. They are the modern replacement for forms with carbon paper. NCR Forms eliminate the carbon mess and are a much more professional alternative to filling out multiple copies of a form on white paper. Use them for forms of all types, such as order forms, packing lists, invoices, and receipts. They are particularly useful where quantities, checkmarks, or signatures will be added to the form by hand.

The back side of the form is the perfect location for printing terms & conditions, warranty information, or other non-variable text that you want on every copy.

Any Size

You can order custom sizes by using the "Any Size (Type Below)" option in the pricing calculator. First select the standard size option which is larger in both dimensions (height and width) than your desired custom size. In the "Any Size (Type Below)" box on the pricing calculator (shown below), type in your desired dimensions. Please remember if you are ordering "Any Size" for a product that is folded, "Any Size" dimensions are for the product before it is folded.

Be mindful of the custom trim when submitting a file to prevent any part of your design from being trimmed away. It's extra important to look at a proof when ordering custom trim.

NCR Paper

NCR paper provides duplicates when written or typed on without the use of carbon. Each sheet in a single set is a different color to make it easy to differentiate between copies. It's better for the environment than carbon copy paper and makes record keeping easy.

We offer 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 parts with NCR paper, depending on how many copies you need in each set.

Our standard forms come in the following colors:

  • 2 Parts Forms come in White / Canary
  • 3 Part Forms come in White / Canary / Pink
  • 4 Part Forms come in White / Canary / Pink / Gold

What is Pantone?

Pantone and PMS are terms often used in the printing industry to refer to the PANTONE® MATCHING SYSTEM® -- a trademark of Pantone, Inc., a subsidiary of X-Rite, Inc. The PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM is the definitive international reference for selecting, specifying, matching and controlling ink colors. This system is often used as a way to specify an exact color, such as a corporate identity color.

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file. Click here to see our preferred PDF settings.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.

  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. All fonts need to be outlined or embedded. For more information on fonts, please Click Here
  4. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.) For more information on crop marks, please Click Here
  5. Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on bleed, please Click Here
  6. Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on safe area, please Click Here
  7. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.For more information on borders, please Click Here

Bleed and Safe Area

We require that you extend any images that run up to the trim line a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") past the trim line to create "bleed". Depending on what program you use to create your file, this may or may not change the total image area of your file. Programs like Photoshop that do not allow the creation of "bleed" or the addition of crop marks will require an image area that is 1/4" (0.25") larger than your desired final overall image area in both dimensions.

Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. If you choose to make less than this minimum clearance, we will NOT be responsible for items that are cut off in this area.

  2. Hard Copy Proof: The Hard Copy Proof can either be picked up on-site or shipped to you. Please keep in mind that this is a proof for content and positioning and is not printed on your actual job stock. Color may vary slightly when printed on the stock you ordered. When ordering a Hard Copy Proof, you will receive a complimentary Online PDF Proof, as well.

If they note technical concerns with your file, they may email you with their concerns so you can upload a corrected file.
