We produce 3 finishes of printed carbonless forms from your design. Pads Books Sets
These are glued at the head, usually the narrowest part of the pad is glued. The pads are usually created in batches of 50 sets. One pad would be of 50 sets, each set would be the number of sheets/parts required for that document. e.g. a duplicate form is 2 part, therefore you would have a one pad of 50 sets 2 parts. The quantity of pads, sets or parts required in today’s market varies from business to business.
In use: a duplicate delivery pad, a writing shield is inserted under the relevant part
to stop information being transferred to set(s) below by the pressure of the pen, you would write out the extra information for the said delivery, as the main information is already pre-printed, quantity, date, address is added… then have the customer sign the form, then peel off the form from the pad, giving the client the relevant copy, usually bottom, the top copy will then be given to the office or filed for further use in the process of the said business.
This is for more rigidity and control of information keep together in a book. The format is similar to pads, but differs in the use of perforating and stitching (very heavy duty stapling) against the use of gluing the copies together.
The books can be fixed (stitched) at the long or narrow part. The books are usually created in batches of 50 sets. Each set would be the number of sheets required for that document, e.g. a triplicate form is 3 part, therefore a one book of 50 sets, where each set would be 3 parts. The quantity of books, sets or parts required in today’s market varies from business to business.
In use: a triplicate waste transfer book, a writing shield is inserted under the relevant part (3rd) to stop information being transferred to sheet(s) below by the pressure of the pen. You write out the required information that is needed, date, address, etc. as the main information company information is already pre-printed… then have the customer signs the form, then tears along the perforation, removing the form from the book, giving the client the relevant copy, usually middle, the top copy will then be given to the office or filed for further use in the process of the said business, and the bottom copy is retained in the book and can stay in the book with the driver.
The set is a group of parts (sheets of paper), 2, 3 ,4 ,5 that are combined together to create a manageable form of a paper trail, these parts are glued together, creating a set an easier way of distribution.
In use: a garage staff member in a car hire company, takes the form with him to oversee any damage visible on a car that is about to be hired out, marks the appropriate spots and returns the signed set to an office member of staff, which is then attached to the rest of the files, for further use.
Each sheet of paper is called a part, so a 2 part set is a top sheet and bottom sheet, a 3 part set is a top sheet, middle sheet and bottom sheet….
A thicker sheet of card is used to stop the writing pressure being transferred to the sheets/copies below. There are 2 formats, one is a wraparound, this is glued to the outside of the pad / book so it is never misplaced and can also keep the information inside from being marked. The other is a insert, this is a thicker card to the size of the pad / book that is loose and easily lost!
We can number in black or red ink and up to 8 numerals in a row of a standard size. This is crash numbered to the copy below.
This is only on books, it can be vertical or horizontal on the form, fine cut slits, set at 12mm from the edge of the paper. Retain bottom copy, or all copies can be perf0rated when finished.
