Forms Printing – all types of forms available
NCR (No Carbon Required) Forms can be designed from scratch, or your existing NCR forms can be re-set if you don’t have the artwork.
NCR Forms can also be padded (pads of 50, 100 etc.) or left as loose sets, and also numbered if required. Your artwork can also be offset, to leave room for hole punching down the sides.
To keep costs down, forms printing is generally done in 1 or more Pantone© spot colours however, 4 colour forms (CMYK) are available also.
If your existing logo is 2 or more colours, then it might be worth considering using your logo as a single colour for your NCR forms printing. This will help to keep the costs down. Your logo can be converted to a single colour, usually at no extra cost.
If space is an issue at your premises (and you’d prefer to place a larger order to take advantage of bulk buying discounts) then storing the bulk of your order at your printers’ premises, and calling off smaller consignments as and when you need them, may be the most cost effective way of buying your printed forms.
NCR forms reflect the quality of your business so it’s worth getting them just right.

Forms Printing FAQ’s
For an in-depth explanation see here: Spot & Process Colours Explained
Generally, no! Some colours are fairly representative whereas others are a long way off. The monitor you view your proof on is a device that mixes colours using red, green and blue (RGB). Without getting too technical, if your monitor has not been calibrated to display a Pantone® colour, then it’s unlikely you will see an accurate representation.
If choosing one or more specific spot colours (for branding purposes etc.) then it’s essential the colours are chosen from a printed Pantone® swatch, unless you know your screen is accurately calibrated.
An example – if you were to select Pantone® Violet in your graphics program, it’s very likely that this will show as a ‘blue’ onscreen. If you were then to look at Pantone® Violet in a Pantone® swatch you’ll see that the true colour is actually a rich purple. It follows that if you’d selected this colour for your design from what you see onscreen (blue), then it’s very likely that you won’t be happy with the final printed results (purple).
