Either in 2 sheets or 3 sheet?

So I don't have to use carbon paper - it would make my life easier

TIA

X posts!!!

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:04:53

It is called carbonless!!!

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:05:17

That's nice

Can you get papaer like that to print on

To kinda make a form to write on iyswim

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:07:42

You mean like a custom invoice or something?

Yes you deffo can. My FIL has just shown me some delivery notes he has had printed on carbon paper for his buisiness. Contact a stationer.

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:08:19

Oh you mean so you can print the form uyourself......hang on let me consult the trusted google ...

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:09:18

O couldn't even work out what it would be called (let alone spell it)

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:17:45

VIOLA!!!

Not sure how you would print the form outline on the 3 layers though as modern printers don't apply the pressure you would need to apply to put the image on the bottom layers.

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:20:16

But not sure if that might just be for professional printing presses actually - reading hte description again...

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:23:59

Not sure I can find anything that is definately for a conventional printer.

If you want to look further try googling NCR or No Carbon Required.

Is there any chance you could get a printer/stationer to do what you need or is it too expensive?

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:28:17

Very expensive

I only need a few sheets - maybe 3 different forms about 50 of each

Thanks for looking - I just hoped it would be more professional

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:41:26

Do you think this is for laser (I think it says so)

here

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:44:41

I think that is the same stuff. The following sentance was what worried me re domestic printers...
"exclusively designed for clean running in xerographic equipment"

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:46:50

OTOH the first line of hte description is

"Produce your own purchase orders, invoices, receipts, personnel forms, contracts, job estimates, reports or any other multi-part form"

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:50:09

Yeah - iot's a bit 2 faced isn't it?

& at £43 I won't be buying some to see

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:53:20

What type of printer do you have? Inkjet or laser?

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:54:11

laser

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 21:57:00

apparetnly laser compatible, but in hte US

Katymac Thu 12-Jul-07 21:59:36

I'll think tomorrow (off to bed)

Thanks for all your help - I am still undecided but I will look again tomorrow

SlightlyMadSpider Thu 12-Jul-07 22:02:52

I would be tempted to find a good local stationers which might stock the Xerox stuff we both linked below. Ask their advice as to whether it would be suitable in your printer.

Altrnatively there is this on ebay. You could ebay them to ask about printer compatibility.

I am just not sure how the printing would work on the bottom layers.
