Samco Printers


Every business uses forms of some kind to conduct their daily business.

While many business forms are used internally and never seen by clients, invoices, statements, order forms, etc. are seen by your clients. Think of these forms as a way to advertise your corporate image while conducting your daily business. Professional looking forms confirm to your customer that your firm is a professional business.


paper stocks

While one part forms can be printed on utility grade paper, multi-part forms require NCR (No Carbon Required) papers. These papers have special coatings that transfer the image from sheet to sheet when the form is filled out. These forms can be padded in loose sets, or booked with a cover that wraps around and can be inserted between sets to prevent transferring information between separate forms. Standard NCR colour sequences are as follows:

  • 2-part NCR: White/Canary
  • 3-part NCR: White/Canary/Pink
  • 4-part NCR: White/Canary/Pink/Goldenrod

Continuous (or tractor feed) forms are printed on roll stock and perforated to allow separation of the forms (once filled in) from each other and from the tractor feed strips on the sides.

One way to save money when printing NCR forms is to list the colour designations the same way on each part of the form (i.e. White – Customer/Yellow – Sales/Pink – Accounting). That way the same plate can be used for the entire job. If the white sheet were designated Customer, the yellow sheet designated Sales and the pink sheet designated Accounting, a separate plate would have to be made for each part of the form.
