NCR Printing

The acronym NCR Printing in the printing industry stands for No Carbon Required; this is a particular type of paper that is the modern-day replacement to the old fashioned and messy blue carbon paper used to make duplicates, usually found in invoices and order pads. With NCR paper, there is no mess at all; the back of the first sheet is coated with micro-encapsulated dye. Then, the face of the second sheet is covered with clay that quickly reacts with the paint to form a permanent mark.
